It’s back to school time! Let’s talk about how we should load our backpacks and minimize the weight we are carrying! When loading our backpacks we want to make sure to always minimize it to our necessities. Decrease the weight of that bag!
At most, the weight of your bag should be a maximum of 15% of your body weight. For growing kids, let’s keep it less! Once we have found the bare minimum we are bringing to school, we need to know how to load the backpack! Keep the heavier items at the bottom of the bag and also try to use compression straps to keep the weight closer to your spine!
By using the compression straps to make sure the bag is snug to your body, the weight will move around with your movements and decrease the momentum when throwing your bag over your shoulders! Use both shoulder straps!
