Correct Lifting Technique:

  • Stand with your feet slightly apart, spread wider than the object.
  • Squat by bending at the knees and hips in front of the object to be lifted with your back straight.
  • Grasp the object by holding it as close to the body as possible.
  • Look in front of you.
  • Contract the muscles of the abdomen, then get up by using your legs and by keeping your back straight.
