>> Here is an excellent training routine for all you hardcore hikers.
>> 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.
>> This is the level I am now.  This is really good, since I am training for the upcoming Mt. Humphrey's expedition.
>> After you feel confident at that level, then start putting a potato in each of the sacks.
>> I thank you.
>> Switchback the Personal Trainer
