I change my my own oil, but then I got to clean my nails. Damn man you keep going at your age my father died at 72 amazing that you can keep rolling. A friend of mine I used to train fell  trying to get his dog from running out of the house severed two arteries in his arm busted through a glass window. Sad I tried calling him no answer he works construction so he will not be able to work for awhile.

It's a bitch when this kind of shit happens. I've heard that most accidents happen at home. Hope your friend is okay.

I used to change my own oil back in the day when I couldn't justify the expense of having someone do it for me. It is a big chore for me because I am claustrophobic and getting under a car gives me a panic attack. I was never smart enough to wear oil changing clothes and would invariably ruin something I was wearing. I may have done this subconsciously to convince myself that changing my own oil was not worth it.

Oil Can Henry's oil change cost me $31 with a $10 discount. I only change the oil every 5,000 miles which means I have it done about twice a year. Every other time, I take the car in the shop at my regular mechanic so he can check everything out to make sure all is good. My car runs like new. It has 114,000 miles on it and it is a 2004 model.

He never called back the friend with the severed arm I hope he is ok, being in that position understood probably a bunch of people calling. He came to my house once after years of no contact I used to train him his life has been sad his two brothers died in accidents and his dad died of heart attack. So being the person I am after hearing of the accident called him got VM.

So $21 not bad you don't have to get dirty and the oil and filter will cost about the same.

Don't want to mislead you. The regular price for an Oil Can Henry's oil change and 15 point check-up is $39 plus $2 for recycling the old oil, totaling $41. I had a $10 off coupon. I paid $31 not $21. I still think it is worth it.

Your friend has been though hell, it seems. Of course as one gets older the likelihood of friends and relatives dying increases. When death is most shocking is when it is the result of an accident or an illness not related to old age. My nephew died in a car accident when he was 10 years old. My little sister died of oat cell lung cancer when she was barely 50 years old. These deaths were unexpected and hard to comprehend.

Thought I was going to work delts yesterday but got sidetracked. Instead I spent all afternoon touring the Northwest Natural 2013 Street of Dreams homes, http://www.streetofdreamspdx.com/. This is a fun gift I give myself every year since it takes place during my birthday month. I really enjoyed myself and the homes were filled with ideas that I cannot afford to use....but, so what. After 3 and a half hours of walking up and down stairs, my leg was killing me. All I could think of was coming home and stretching out in the recliner with ice on my ankle. So, no delts yesterday.

Today I got with the program and worked chest. It has been a month since my last pec workout. I decided to see if I could do what I did a month ago and I succeeded. -No increases in resistance or the number of sets or reps and yet I felt really good at the end the routine which I knocked off in about an hour. There is no sense in posting the details since they have been posted previously. Tomorrow is quads and calves....well see. The last time I did this routine it knocked me out of the game for over a week.

I see the doctor midweek next week to discuss surgery on my knee. At this point, my feeling is lets just do it. I am not getting better on my own and my knee and leg pain is totally sapping all my energy anyway which is destroying my workout routine. Something needs to change and change quick. I am done with this shit.

My sister tore her rotator cuff doing dips. She has had problems with it ever since. Dips are a good exercise as long as they are done right and with resistance you can handle with good form.

Sounds like you better lay off the shoulder/delt work until you see the doctor and find out what is up with yours. You should not be in that much pain. It might be something minor, but better to know and take care of it before it becomes something major. Shoulder injuries are slow to heal.

Good point....I already tore the left supraspinatus tendon and had that re-attached a few years ago. Of course it's the right one now. Really thought the GH would help. Dips and overhead presses are out for a while. Laterals seem to be fine. Upright rows are out too.

Lately, I have been using a Nautilus seated dip machine. In the past, I used the Nautilus weight assisted machine. Both offer the ability to really control the resistance which allows me to concentrate on the movement better. The seated version facilitates the most controlled movement of the two machines since there is almost no chance of swinging or changing the position of one's body. Some folks would argue that neither of these machines encourage going the limit on resistance, which they don't really. My question to you is do you think for dips to be really effective doing them heavy is necessary or do you think doing them with absolute control will work the muscle better?

I Train Dips with Body weight and pull ups too. I have used extra weight but i find superseting Dips with  push ups saves my Joints, Training Dips heavy is not always an answer to muscle growth. Most People cheat and do half reps...i work slow and concentrate. i also like muscle endurance and Speed so i Train for it.
