Without a reasonable amount of strength and endurance, daily activities are much harder for a person than they need to be. Strength and endurance are different qualities, but both are vital.
I came upon the use of broomsticks by accident. I was using light cane rods in a dance for my Fitness class and wondered whether a heavier wooden stick could be useful in certain exercises. Since then I have used them for all types of exercises including warm up and aerobics. When I say broomstick I actually mean just the wooden handle part without the brush part and here in George, depending on the thickness, these replacement handles go for about R20 in our local farmer’s Co Op.
