Why is it best to first kneel, rather than bend over, when attempting to lift a heavy weight?

Answer The muscles of the lower back, the lumber muscles, are really good at helping us maintain an upright posture. They are not so great for lifting things.

You know the saying "lift with your legs"? It's true and this advice could help save you from having back problems.
