"My mind sees that I am nothing, my heart sees that I am everything, between these two poles my life unfolds."

Begin by standing on a comfortable surface, where you have plenty of room at each side. With a 5-lb potato sack in each hand, extend your arms straight out from your sides and hold them there as long as you can. Try to reach a full minute, and then relax. Each day you'll find that you can hold this position for just a bit longer.

After a couple of weeks, move up to 10-lb potato sacks. Then try 50-lb potato sacks and then eventually try to get to where you can lift a 100-lb potato sack in each hand and hold your arms straight for more than a full minute. (I'm at this level.)

After you feel confident at that level, put a potato in each sack.


  1. Bahahahaha... I was getting ready to write "OHMYGGOD, you can actually lift 100 pounds with each hand?" And then I saw the last line... :) Now, don't I feel sheepish? Har har har

  2. Haha - someone forwarded this to me yesterday and it had me going right up to the last line as well :)

  3. Hummm! I read this somewhere not long ago.
