Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Exercise Plan

Follow the directions exactly. Do not skip any steps even if you think you can lift more.

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 of the sacks.
