Lift'n Buddy, the name of our company, can indicate an association with weight lifting. Ask anyone one who works here, and they will tell you the association is welcomed with open arms. Why? Because our focus is providing mechanical lift assists to "spot" you while lifing awkward, heavy and bulky materials. Therefore, we borrow much from the world of weight lifting, especially as it pertains to REPETITIVE lifting and injury prevention. Hey, injurious happen. Jim Brown, Phd., wrote the following as it concerns the bicep. This show-cased muscle has always been a measure of strength, particularly from childhood on up, thus the expression: "SHOW ME YOUR MUSCLES." This important muscle is subject to wear-and-tear. Let's see what Jim Brown as to say regarding protecting 'the guns':
The biceps, the muscles in the front of the upper arm, extend upward to the shoulder and downward to the elbow. A strained biceps, which is actually a tear in the biceps tendon, is an injury that's being reported more frequently than in the past, but the reason isn't clear.
