How to Properly Use Backpacks

The backpacks are still the best in having your things organized. Backpacks are good in carrying books and supplies to evenly distribute the weight to your body. Your back and abdominal muscles will be supporting the pack. But there are proper ways on how to use the backpacks to prevent health problems.

First, you have to consider the construction of the backpack. Make sure that the two straps of the bag are padded when you buy a bag. It is better if it has wide straps. If ever you want to go hiking, look for backpacks with a belt on the waist to help in distributing the weight across the body equally. Backpacks with plenty of compartments also help in the distribution of weight across the body.

You need to carry the backpack properly. Before putting things in your bag, you should adjust the straps so that it will be closest to your back when carried. Make sure that the pack does not bump your lower back or butt whenever you walk because it might be because the straps are overly long. Remember to put the heaviest thing the closest to your back. Use the compartment on the sides so the weight will be distributed as well. You should also put the two straps over your shoulders. If the bag is too heavy for you, get some books and carry it with your bare hands.

You can also have backpacks with wheels. Kids would want to own a rolling bag for the reason that they will not carry the backpacks over their shoulders.

Try using your locker. You can’t be carrying the bags with all the books including those books you do not need in some times. Leave the things that you do not need as of the moment to your locker and just go get it back when you need it again. You need to make a limit on how much weight you need to put in your bag. The bag should not exceed 10-15% of your own body weight. There are weighing scales that will help you if you have the right weight for a backpack.

The proper way to pick up a backpack is to bend your knees and avoid bending your back.
There are ways like training and yoga, that you can do to stabilize your muscles thus strengthens your core.

These are few tips that you can use to avoid complications when using backpacks in a daily basis. I hope this will help you choose the right backpack for you.
