    LOL! I'd probably even have trouble with just the bag. The way my shoulders are just lifting a fork to my mouth is a challenge. :D

    It's resistance exercise - the art of resisting actually lifting real weight!

    I actually do some form of exercise...
    the ankle rotations, at least twice a day, from sitting position,easy enough, but it's hard to be graceful with the previously broken leg unless you practice.

    And the hard one.
    If you ever skied (water or snow) you'll find sore muscles you didn't know you had, so I sometimes do the what I call the "Burning Thigh."
    Back against a sturdy wall or door, slide down til you assume a stance like a chair - straight back, legs at 90 degrees from your hips, hold it til it burns/hurts/cussing ensues. Doesn't take long for me, and it feels so much better when you stop.
    Unless done daily one minute will make you (uh, me) sore the next day.
    BUT afterwards it helps to stretch by standing up, grab one leg or ankle and gently pull backwards, toward your buttock. You'll feel it, just don't over do it.

    But I'm much less active and limber than I used to be, your pain may vary ;)

    The other I do is a shoulder rotation - arm out straight from shoulder, and rotate as a clock, both ways 10 times each way.
    In my case it often sounds like a spoon digging into a bowl of Captain Crunch cereal without milk, and leg squats resemble a walk among dry Corn Flakes, or perhaps a pepper grinder set to coarse grind :rolleyes:
