With the snowy weather approaching, it’s a good time to go over some tips to keep your back in shape while you’re shovelling the driveway.
Pick the Right Shovel
Use a lightweight pusher-type shovel that is the right size for you. If it is too big, you may be pushing (or worse, having to lift) more snow than your body can handle.
Bend Your Knees
If you have to lift a shovelful of snow, bend your knees instead of bending your back. Keep your back straight and try not to bend over – this will keep your back in a safer position. Try to push only though, and not lift.
