I load packages into trailers all day, is lifting overdoing it? Also, should I be lifting before or after work, currently I am doing it before.

Where to start on this one. Is the job heavy? Are you sore after a day at work?

Nothing is over doing it...unless your hurting. To much questions need to be answered.

One main advice though, You must be young... I've been in your shoes before at warehouse jobs...TAKE CARE OF YOUR BACK. DON'T TRY TO SHOW OFF AND IMPRESS YOUR COWORKERS. YOU ARE THE CAPTAIN OF YOUR OWN SHIP...DO NOT MESS IT UP.

Couldn't agree more. Your back is super important. During your work, lift properly and sensibly. Once you've hurt it, that's it, you're in pain!
