Open your legs enough to allow yourself to bend your knees to 90 degrees while maintaining your spinal s-curve (the so called 'straight' back). 2. Bring yourself close enough to the object to hug it. 3. Lift it up, holding it underneath and keeping it close to yourself 4. Straighten your legs and move your feet in the direction of the offload point. Always make sure your feet are facing the direction that you're moving in to protect your knees. 0 More: Daily Dose: This is why your vanilla or cinnamon flavoured e-cigarette is toxicHealth-in-Motion advertisement Other news Medical Social media posts may hint at depression long before clinical diagnosis Medical Eczema?
