    "give me a lever long enough and a vulcrum strong enough and i can move the world." haha Old quote but very true. You are basically talking biomechanics, which is the study of mechanical advantage in the human body. A few tips; always keep the load as close to you as possible. (the further out the load is the more it weighs due to the lever distance.) Avoid any torque, this force will destroy your back. Always lift in straight lines, no turning or twisting. Anytime you can lock out a joint (instead of holding an isometric contraction) the lift will be much easier. Finally, always use mechanical advantage if you can like levers.

    This is obvious SPAM. They have absolutely no connection to the fire service and created these user names for the sole purpose of peddling their SPAM. They have only posted one or two posts and left the forums. They search out any and every forum so they can have free advertising to make a profit off of their business. Public free forums are not places to advertise products of any kind. Report me all you want.

    Are you on crack or something? This guy is an obvious spammer. He can't even put together sentences in English yet somehow is going to help people with drug interventions. Yes I have to be like that. Please do report me.
