Hilarious Hump Day – Getting in Shape for Geeks

For those keyboard jockeys (those with jobs that require sitting at a computer all day), and those of you who are just flat out geeks who never stray from your machines out of choice, and who either don’t want to spend the money for those fancy exercise machines and/or wouldn’t take the time to use them anyway, here is a little secret for building arm and shoulder muscles  that takes very little time and costs next to nothing. Three days a week is best.

Begin by standing (in your workplace cubicle or home office cubbyhole works well) with a five pound potato sack in each hand. Extend your arms straight out to your sides and hold them there as long as you can.

After a few weeks, move up to ten pound potato sacks and then fifty pound potato sacks, and finally get to where you can lift a one hundred pound potato sack in each hand and hold your arms straight for more than a full minute.

Next, start putting a few potatoes in the sacks.

    I guess you’re not called “the Old Silly” for nothing. This was silly and it made me smile.
