Lift with your legs, not your back!

More often than not, back injuries are caused by improper lifting. Uncurling the spine while picking up or putting down heavy objects can cause serious long-term damage.

In a previous post, we discussed how to perform a proper hip hinge or deadlift to spare your spine. This week we wanted to show you how to “Lift with your legs, not your back”.

I hope that you’ll make it an everyday practice to lift properly, keeping your back and spine safe.
