✳️Proper Lifting Mechanics

👍Proper lifting technique starts from the ground up.


⚠️Sprains and strains are caused by overstretching and tearing of the soft tissues from improper lifting techniques.



💪Practicing proper form throughout the lifting cycle will lead to safer mechanics and safeguard against injury. By using proper mechanics the muscles are able to work more efficiently and they actually get stronger.
