  1. Warm up before attempting the Rickshaw Carry to prevent injuries. Stretch your legs, arms, and back to prepare your muscles for the exercise.
  2. Always start with the appropriate weight for your fitness level. Gradually increase the weight as you become stronger and more comfortable with the exercise.
  3. Position the frame correctly before lifting. Make sure it is stable and secure to avoid any accidents or injuries.
  4. When lifting the frame, maintain proper form. Keep your chest and head up, and your back straight. This will help protect your spine and prevent strain on your lower back.
  5. Engage your core muscles throughout the exercise to provide stability and support for your back.
  6. Take quick, controlled steps while walking with the frame. Avoid rushing or taking uneven steps, as this may lead to loss of balance or tripping.

  8. Listen to your body and stop if you experience any pain or discomfort. Do not push through the pain, as this may lead to injuries.
  9. Practice proper lifting and lowering techniques. Bend your knees and use your leg muscles to lift and lower the frame, rather than relying solely on your back and arms.
  10. Always bring the frame to the ground gently and with control. Avoid dropping it or letting it slam
