Here's an exercise that can improve your golf, especially your
length off the tee, by building muscle strength in the arms and shoulders, and
it'll only take a minute or so a day. So you owe it to yourself to try it.
Initially try the exercise every other day or 3 times a week
with a rest on Sundays.
Begin by standing on a comfortable surface, where you have
plenty of room at each side.
With a 5-lb. (2 kilogram) potato sack in each hand, extend your
arms straight out from your sides, and hold them there as long as you can, say
30 seconds initially.
Each day, you'll find that you can hold this position for just
a bit longer.
Try to reach a full minute, then relax .
After a couple of weeks, when you can do the exercise with out straining,
move up to 10-lb. (5 Kg) potato sacks.
Then 25-lb. (10Kg) potato sacks, and eventually try to get to where you can
lift a 50-lb. (20 or even 25 Kg) potato sack in each hand and hold your arms
straight for more than a full minute.
After you feel confident at that level, put a potato in each of the sacks,
but ... be ... very ... careful ...
