Jessie I need your help, homie. I had some rotator cuff pain pop up out of nowhere. Severe pain and weakness when I try to lift my arm above a 90 degree angle. What can I try to do on my own before giving up and going to a doctor?

It certainly can be a cuff strain, or a labral issue. Try ice, anti-inflammatories, and pendulum exercises (Google it) and avoid overhead activities. I doubt you have a tear in the absence of an injury. If it's still painful in a couple of weeks you can get an injection - typically a short-acting anesthetic like lidocaine and a steroidal anti-inflammatory like depo-medrol. If you have weakness after the shot has removed the pain I'd be more concerned about a tear.

I forgot you were a doc. Thanks a lot, man

This is a good DVD to mix in with DDP Yoga. Three hour-long programs for under 15 bucks.

Let me make a recommendation to everyone.

Let's be honest,  convincing yourself to go the gym can be tough for those who don't already do it regularly.

Put a pull up bar right in your bedrooms doorway.  You will feel like a little pussy bitch every time you walk past it not doing a few.

I got one of those pull-up bars that screw into the doorway. I was doing pull-ups and it ripped out, and I landed full force onto my shins. One of the most painful episodes of my life.

I have found the 'Door Gyms' that hook on behind a Door Frame are much more secure (and the different handles allow different hand positions/exercises).

Usually those things have a weight limit (my own was listed at 250 lbs...I'm about 180 myself so have never had any problems with it. Though I would say if it lists a max 250 lbs anything over about 220 would be dodgy) so they might not be for everyone here (reading some of the bench weights you guys are pressing I'm assuming most of you are over 6 feet and 200 lbs). Also depending on the height of your door frames they probably don't make sense for anyone taller than about 6 foot tall.

If I ever don't have time for a proper workout I usually go for 100 reps (proper form, dead hang - no kipping...none of that Crossfit shit) in as few a number of sets as possible with 1 minute rest between sets (cycling through the four different hand positions the bar allows).
