So watching @Matt Wood new assistant wanding, do any of you long termers still alternate arms while wanding?

I did for awhile, but my right (I'm a lefty) was always the one getting the most shoulder, elbow, wrist pain etc

So I stick to my left, and yes it gets tired but seems to handle it better

just wondering if you guys switch it up?

I'm ambidextrous but I am right handed. My older brother is a lefty. My younger brother could pitch and bat either way because our older brother taught him to play sports.

I noticed my step grandson wasn't using his left arm much so I've been focusing on making him use it to strengthen it. I was the only one who noticed.

Regarding "wanding": I always think about how a professional baseball player would play first base. Think about it. He keeps his back foot in position on the base, back somewhat straight with his back leg, bends his front leg as he extends, then reaches out to catch the ball.

In other words, I do similar when I wand. I keep my back straight with the back leg and rock with the front leg (at the knee) while holding the wand barrel at around waist level. I let my legs do all the work as I rock that wand back and forth as I clean.

Bending your knees is key. Many cleaners, myself included have a tendency to lock our knees in position.
