Six Steps to Correct Lifting

  1. Feet apart (shoulder width) one foot ahead of the other in the direction of the intended movement
  2. Knees bent (not squat) - again most effective power from thigh muscles mid position the best
  3. Back straight - not necessarily vertical (15-20 degrees) from vertical is all right. Centre of gravity over the load
  4. Arms close to the body - nearer the centre of gravity
  5. Hands palms grasp - roots of the fingers + palm of the hand
  6. Head chin out and up - otherwise round shoulders and curved spine
