Does Lifting Position Matter?

So how does this translate into performance? Should we worry about the way in which we lift in a performance context?

The answer is likely the dreaded phrase – ‘it depends.’

The study in question has looked at how lifting kinematics differs between certain individuals depending on their natural spinal curvature. What it found was:

  • Those with increased lumbar lordosis (or a more curved spine) in standing preferred to lift in a stoop style

  • Those with straighter spines prefer to squat lift

  • Natural ‘squatters’ adapted more easily to stoop lifting that natural ‘stoopers’ to squat lifting
