Autumn yard work might seem innocuous, but when performed incorrectly, it can cause serious injury. Protect yourself by warming up and cooling down in between labor, just as you would for a work out. When raking, switch arms to avoid strain to the muscles and bend at the knees rather than the waist when picking up items. It's also important to choose ergonomic tools with long necks for easy handling and comfortable grips to prevent blisters.
