Abstract Although the prophylactic benefits of exercise have been established, the influence of exercise on the biomechanics of lifting remains unknown. The goal of most industrial exercise programs is to optimize the prophylactic effect of exercise in an effort to control of LBDs. Without an understanding of the biomechanical effects of exercise, the choice of exercise protocol design must be based solely on intuition and limited clinical experience. With knowledge of the mechanisms by which exercise affects biomechanical risk factors, however, exercise can be tailored to maximize the improvement of these risk factors. Therefore, it is necessary to understand how exercise and physical conditioning influences the biomechanics of MMH lifting and associated spinal load and spinal stability. Exercise may influence spinal load and stability through interaction with spinal kinematics and muscle recruitment patterns. The goal of the research was to quantify the effects of exercise on the exercise on the biomechanical performance, spinal load and stability during MMH lifting tasks.
