    I'm really not a physical person, but I got a job at a warehouse store doing overnight stocking and they're going on about lifting with your legs. The power position"" and when I try to lift with my legs... I just cannot pick anything up. So, do you have any advice on how I can make it easier to lift with my legs? Any help is much appreciated. :bowdown:

    I'm aware of how to lift with my legs, the problem is when I do... nothing happens.
