Turner Wand Exercise
This video illustrates a “wand exercise for senior men” from Mind and Body, a Turner journal on physical education. It was published in New Ulm, Minnesota, in the early 20th century. The music is “Turner auf zum Streite.”
This traditional exercise has regained popularity as an excellent way to stretch muscles without weight stress. Try it with a broomstick if you don’t have a wand handy.
