It’s not exactly a surprise that toting around a heavy backpack can result in aches and pains. Instead of filling a pack to the gills, strive to tote around only 15 percent of your body weight. Any heavier and the bag can cause long-term spine and posture problems. Storing heavier objects towards the bottom can reduce neck strain, too.
