thing we’re gonna talk about is well and it’s something I have to deal with too if you know me if you watch my videos you know I love Coke Zero not a sponsor I wish though save me a buttload of money I love Coke Zero I drink a lot of it and for a lot of people out there they drink a lot of these energy drinks not mine by the way stole it out of the fridge so don’t give me any you know guff about it but a lot of young guys in this field drink a buttload of that stuff and it’s not the best thing for you already and then it’s in the middle of summer the heat it’s it’s not a good thing you got to drink either Gatorade or even better water now Gatorades mine the water I stole out of the fridge up front but you need to stay hydrated if you go to the restroom and it in what comes out looks like that you need to drink a whole lot more of this the big thing with in this business is a lot of people suffer headaches muscle fatigue because they don’t stay hydrated it’s very important to stay hydrated this business we’re in a hot shop I know some techs work in air-conditioned shops I ain’t one of them so I drink lots of fluids I know I should drink water but I don’t I drag Gatorade I can’t stand the taste of water call me crazy really important the the more you do work in this business the more your body is gonna fatigue faster so you got to stay hydrated no matter how bad you don’t want to you got to stay hydrated if you’ve seen any of my tours you know I have a fridge my BAE’s I keep it stocked during the winter Coke Zero and creamer for my coffee during the summer it’s Gatorade cook zero in there too and creamer too but you know I had Gatorade for the summer what are some other tips to save your body now I will preface this before you start typing all the comments yes I’m in flip-flops yes I’m insurance I’m not actually working it’s called acting so it’s just be a role just demonstration that’s not how I work I wear red back boots in the shop so it’s after hours I’m filming video so just don’t a lot of young text especially young text but I see it with older texts as well they pull a car in you know they’ve got to do a valve cover gasket spark plugs or whatever and they just pull it in they bend over all the way because they don’t want to spot the car because they’re just doing something easy up top and they’re all stooped over and then when they go to get up they’ve got back pain simple simple thing pull the car in spot it raise it up a little bit so you’re at a comfortable working height so you’re not all stooped over back problems are the biggest bane of this industry as you get older back pain gets worse so make sure you do everything you can to minimize the strain on your back another tip like you’re working on bigger trucks go to Walmart buy a twenty dollar stool so you can stand on that when you’re working on those bigger trucks and you’re not climbing on the radiator support possibly breaking something including yourself it makes it a lot easier to work on those bigger vehicles just that little stepstool top side creeper for those trucks too you know if you’re doing major jobs on there it’s a lot easier to lay on your belly then lay on a radiator support hurts a lot less – you know you’ve ever had a hood latch in a hmm spot you know what I’m talking about well worth it for not hanging on a on a hood latch on your you know so definitely something to consider kneepads now the next bane of the industry is knees you know we’re all in this business we all got a kneel down to spotless you know to make sure the lift is safe so we spend a good bit of time on our knees and if you watch some of my videos you know I have pads hanging on all my lips that’s so I don’t go knees to concrete cuz it hurts I’ve had knee problems since I was fifteen I passed it on to my daughter I’m not making them worse so do everything you can to not kneel on concrete you can use them when you’re doing under – stuff you there’s plenty of uses for knee pads you can go to a garden center or buy them you don’t have to buy off the tool truck they’re on Amazon stuff like that but it’s really important to take care of your knees the next thing we’re going to talk about well your feet good quality work shoes or work boots with a quality insult you’re on your feet how many hours a day if you don’t have good shoes everything hurts so spend a little bit of money get good shoes good inserts so everything else hurts less because we all know this business is hard on the body we know it now the next thing we’re going to talk about well I already did a video on this but we’re gonna recap for you know newer subscribers and it’s it didn’t get a whole lot of views so we want to emphasize it wear gloves we deal with a lot of nasty chemicals protect your skin chemicals are absorbed through the body wear gloves hearing protection you lose hearing you don’t get it back except by them putting something in your ear anytime you’re using loud air tools loud tools wear earring protection I can’t stress this enough I’ve lost enough hearing over the years you know one inch impacts hurt hearing protection is very important for your well-being you need to have hearing protection period in a store you need to protect your ears eye protection now these are shades but there are also safety glasses but it looks cooler than these protect your eyes you can’t get these back either you pop one out it’s not fun if you ever had any rust dug out of your eyes you know how bad that hurts do your safety gear personal protection equipment protect yourself you know there’s no reason to cut your career down because you weren’t wearing safety safety gear doing something sponsorships available I can’t emphasize this enough the stuff you do starting out in this career will affect you for the rest of your life believe me I know I know lots of people that are much worse off because they did all that kind of stuff that I talked
