I'm wondering if there are any tips about LIFTING and moving heavy objects around. Do I use the hip-hinging technique for this? Or do I revert to Conventional Wisdom's "lift with your legs/knees, and not with your back." I'm a little confused. Because it feels like I want to "hinge" down to get close to the object (say, a buck of water), but how then do I pick it up and move it around? Do I swoop from hinge position into a bent-knee position to, as it were, get "under" the weight of the object? Or do I literally grab the object and hinge back up? If it's the latter option, is this safe? How much weight can I do?
