Any tips for taking the 50 lb. lift test?

  1. 0 I have been offered a position at a rehab facility pending a passing grade on a lift test/physical assessment test. I have to show that I can lift 50 lbs. without looking like I am struggling. Does anyone have any tips for taking this test? Thanks in advance!

    Just use your lower body as leverage, keep your knees bent, keep your back straight, and do a slowly controlled lift to the best of your ability. Good luck to you.

    Think "Push through your heels" instead of pull with my arms. Your legs are a lot more powerful that your arms. Practice lifting in front of a mirror sideways, and make sure you are sloping your shoulders down, or curving your back too much.
