So here’s a few tips how to lift things safely. We always want to lift with our legs. So many times we start to bend or flex throughout your low back. That’s going to create a lot of pressure and irritation on your low back. So, what does that mean when someone says, “lift with your legs?” We want to bend at your knees. Keep a pretty neutral spine. Keeping a neutral spine means we’re going to maintain that neutral position. We’re not going to bend or flex. Hinging at our hips, too, is another good tip. So, we’re going to lift with our legs. We’re not going to bend with our back. Something that also gets very overlooked many times, with you, is that we can hold the object close to us, just like any type of a lever. If I have it way out in front of me, it’s going to create more load and weight. If I get that object closer to me, lift with my legs, use my big butt muscles, my glutes, and try not to flex or bend through my back; that hopefully will prevent you from developing lower back pain and irritation.
