Protect Your Back While Raking

Autumn is a beautiful season to look at, but it can be a lot of work to keep the view that beautiful.  Raking doesn’t have to take a toll on your back if you keep in mind a few helpful tips:

  • Switch the way you hold your rake often.  This uses an equal amount of effort from both sides of your body.
  • Use more smaller, more frequent motions to reduce the strain.  You don’t have to get it all done at once.
  • Try not to do too much twisting.  Move your feet where you want to go.
  • When lifting leaves, bend at the knees to protect your back.
  • Yes, you knew I’d add this in – drink plenty of water.  Raking leaves is a workout too!
