W.O.D. Friday 4-13-2012
Today is a single modality day. Meaning we will concentrate on one move. This will give the nervous system a rest from the longer WODs of the week but tax it in a different way preparing your body for heavier lifts.
SWOD – Rack Jerk 1-1-1-1-1-1-1
Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. 2 For by it the men of old gained approval. 3 By faith we understand that the worlds were prepared by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things which are visible.
This passage has an unintended meaning for me. I can obviously relate it to what Paul had intended but it takes on a similar meaning when applied to exercise. I tend to do that with some bible verses. “Faith…the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen….so that what is seen was not made out of things which are visible.” Is that not what we do when we workout. Faith drives us to perform better. We workout with the intention of looking and performing as something else. The result that is seen was not made out of things which are visible…You have faith that it will happen. In parallel, I have faith that even though I do not see Jesus, I know the Word, and through it He is visible.
