Proper Lifting Techniques For The Garden - From Stacy Best

 

SIX SIMPLE STEPS:

  1. Ensure a wide base of support by standing with feet shoulder width apart.
  2. Tighten abdominal muscles
  3. Bend at the hips and knees, NOT AT THE WAIST
  4. Use leg muscles to lift, and hold the load close to your body.  
  5. Don't twist the spine while holding the load--instead, move your feet.  
  6. Bend at the hip and knees to lower the load.
