Powerlifting Large Objects Powerlifting Techniques Improper Powerlifting

Powerlifting Training

People lift things all day long, and eventually, bad lifting habits will take their toll on the back. Most back injuries are caused by cumulative stress. This video-on-demand presents five Powerlift techniques designed to protect the back from injury, while increasing how much one can lift safely.

Dr. Michael Schaefer developed the Powerlifting techniques to help people safely lift loads that are tall, are blocked by solid, immovable objects, have no handles, and that are on low shelves. Learn when and how to use the wide stance, tilt load, tripod, golfer's bend and learn-bar techniques to lift all types of objects without injury.

The video shows practical applications for these lifts in the work setting as well as at home, and depicts men and women of all ages correctly using the lifts. Learning these lifts, coupled with reasonable physical fitness and the use of daily stretching and warm-ups, will help keep employees safe on the job and at home.

Reduce absenteeism, protect against workers' compensation claims, and show your employees you care about their well-being. Require this online training video as part of an annual training program for all employees.
