How long have you had the bow? It's quite obvious that whoever sold you the bow does not have your best interest at heart. Assuming you're about full grown and are having some trouble with 55# right now there are no exercises you can do that will enable you to get up to 70#. Nor is there any reason for you to do so.
You should have been advized to get a 60# bow and be able to back it down to what you can draw comfortably---comfortably being the key word here. You should not have to struggle the least bit to draw a bow. If you do then you'll never learn to shoot well.
Depending on the shop and some other things, I would advise taking the bow back and getting a 60# bow or swapping out for 60# limbs. There is nothing you can hunt in North America that 60# won't kill so don't bust your guts trying to draw more.
