50 pounds over her head all day long? She must have 30'' biceps to pull that off.....doesn't sound accurate.

The machine is most likely counter balanced on some sort of boom. You probably have to have enough strength to move it around. That's why the strength requirement. I have worked at a few places where lifting was required; the guys who had been there a while were more often wirey rather than big. Fifty pounds just isn't enough weight to encourage hypertrophy in most people. Especially when it is offset by a mechanical advantage...

It is accurate Andos. She's pulling a machine up and down that has the resistance of approximately 50 lbs. She's sore everyday that she comes home. She has to move a press around that stamps stearing wheels.

Sounds like she needs to move into office or computer admin or something...probably pays better, too.

She really should, but if she's not up and moving around all day, she goes nuts. She came into the office today and helped me go through out client files and I thought she was going to snap from the non-movement work. She's going to go back to school to become a juvenile probation officer, so that will be better than what she does now. And she TOTALLY has the personality for it. We always joke with her and tell her that she'd make one heck of a cop with her attitude.
