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 Diet and nutrition The best way to lose weight when you have hypothyroidism Fitness 6 sports to take up in winter so you stay active, get fitter and build more muscle Lifestyle Why guys are spending thousands of rands a year to produce more semen Fitness ‘I finally learnt how to skip at the age of 36 – this is how you can do it too’ Lifestyle What exactly are ‘dense breasts’?
