Seriously, put a broom between your legs with your right foot 
forward and slightly bent at the knee with your left leg extended 
behind you.  Now turn your hips 90 degrees counterclockwise so the 
left foot is forward and the right extended behind you.  Check out 
the end of the broom handle and imagine it weighs 500 to 1000 lbs.  
Even if it weighs less, it is going to have some energy.  Still, just 
imagining and wondering.

As always, this is only an opinion, subject to
retraction and recall without notice, and with 
due respect to others opinions.
