Can someone who is not very strong still perform CPR properly?

Can someone is not very strong still perform CPR properly?

Thank you for this really good question. The answer is yes you can deliver CPR if you are not very strong because most of the power comes from your core. You keep your elbows locked and straight and “rock” down by flexing your hips and have your upper body weight over the persons chest. It is about learning the correct technique to be most effective – don’t forget you will get bigger and stronger!
