#4 Repetition

Repeating the same movement over and over again can lead to back injury as well. That is why you should try to minimize repetition in your movements.

These tips are all very simple and common, but the effect they have is tremendous, because while it does not take a lot of time to remember these, it will take you a lot longer to recover from back injury.
