Back health and avoiding injury
Amber291989 posted:

Hello everyone, I need some advice on preventative exercises for men.

I am dating a man who is a mobile radiology tech. He is often reaching and lifting heavy patients to get the X-ray film behind them.

So I am looking for advice on preventative exercises to strengthen the lower back and arm muscles he can do at home (without equipment).

Also maybe some good ways to lift while you are extending your arms? (He understands the concept of lifting with your legs, not back... but that doesn't always apply to the situation)

Are there any other men in this form who work with a similar problem and have taken safety measures?

Also any advice on back safety for those who drive a lot would be helpful too! (that's another big part of his job)

He doesn't have the time to research this himself (or the high speed internet) So this is why I am posting for him <3

Thank you for your help!
