Jul 10, 2012 | Blog, Tips and How Tos

When you go downstairs and look at that giant projection television that was all the rage in the late 90’s and early 2000’s, it doesn’t take long for you to realize how far technology has come. With the inclusion of sleek, narrow and much lighter flat screen TV’s, consumers smile when they look at their new toy. However, consumers start to cringe when they think of moving or getting rid of the giant heavy box that still remains. What was once the beloved center piece in your entertainment room and/or man cave is now that which you loathe when thinking of the effort, pain and energy that will go into moving it. In order to move this, you’ll need to learn using proper lifting techniques when removing clutter! Read on to learn more.

Using Proper Lifting Techniques When Removing Clutter

Proper Lifting Techniques

Here’s a little information about how to avoid more excruciating pain than what you endure when paining over how to get rid of of your clutter.

For starters, it’s back to basics: Lift with your legs and not with your back. This may sound like a cliché because you have probably been hearing a version of this, if not this very statement, for most of your life. However, it’s a cliché, or common saying, because it is true, time tested and approved. When you put a majority of the weight on your legs and get low with the lift, it puts less strain on your body overall, which is extremely important to the longevity of your back! When you go to He-man something and only slightly bend over before you lift because you think you are going to lift it with your pipes, you are only creating stress on your lower back. Trust us, you will feel it later in the evening and will end up with a heating pad or a hot bath.

You have to get low on these heavy items like old TV’s and treat the lift like your entire body is in motion at the same time. When you get a good shoulder width apart stance and bend your knees with your butt to the ground, you are off to a good start. You do need a good grip and will use your back in a sense, as well as your arms, but it’s using all those parts in unison that will lead to an effective and safe lift. When the brunt is on your legs and you do everything else in unison, you will be just fine.
