Amen to that Greg!

Greg, you're a douche bag.

i fear christians...

I fear God. I know one day I will stand before Him to face judgment. Every one of us will die one day.

So I live my life with an understanding that God is a Judge, who will judge those who transgress His holy law. I also know that God is love, and His love was clearly demonstrated through His Son Jesus.

I have placed my trust in His Son, whom God sent to save sinners from His judgment against sin by dying on a cross. While Jesus was on the cross, God poured out His wrath on His Son, so that those who would repent from their sins, and believe in His Son, could have forgiveness, and look forward to life after death. Jesus rose from the grave, and He lives!

It was this love of God that compelled me to repent from those things I use to do; things like getting drunk, looking at pornography, lying, or having sex outside of the marriage relationship (fornication).

Before I knew the love of God, I lived for today. Now that I know God’s love, and have placed my faith in His Son, I have peace, and His forgiveness. Now I live for Him.

This has made me a better policeman(motor). I do all that I can to be safe, and stay fit, but I know that He has my back, always. Be safe out there Freddy! Love ya man! :)

“The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: a good understanding have all they that do his commandments: his praise endures forever.” -Psalm 111:10

"The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, and knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.” -Proverb 9:10

“Only fools say in their hearts, "There is no God." They are corrupt, and their actions are evil; not one of them does good!” -Psalm 53:1

“For God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. God sent his Son into the world not to judge the world, but to save the world through him. “There is no judgment against anyone who believes in him. But anyone who does not believe in him has already been judged for not believing in God’s one and only Son. And the judgment is based on this fact: God’s light came into the world, but people loved the darkness more than the light, for their actions were evil. All who do evil hate the light and refuse to go near it for fear their sins will be exposed. But those who do what is right come to the light so others can see that they are doing what God wants.” -John 3:16-18

Great post, Freddy! After battling a right shoulder injury (possible torn labrum but not quite sure) since September, I've had a real fear of overhead movements – snatches, OHS & any type of jerk really. I even avoided (maybe not feared, but definitely avoided) pull-ups until about a month ago.

It all came to a head a few weeks ago when I dropped a push jerk at a globo gym. I couldn't bail properly because it has octagonal weights and no Oly platform. Luckily I came away with only a scrape on the shin and a couple bruises, but it's been a struggle to get back.

That being said, the past few power hours (max C&Js and 3/3/3 OHS this week – PR'd both actually) have really helped. While the shoulder's still not 100%, each time I hit an overhead lift it feels that much better both mentally & physically. Keep training indeed.

Feer More Beer.

Catching a heavy snatch in full squat. That snatch move scares the crap out of me. It is like this bullet train version of an overhead squat while trying to maintain midline stability enough to have the faith that you are going to catch the damn thing.

I think it is like rock climbing where you just have to keep at it and continue and push through failures. If you don't fall for a long time while climbing, lots of climbers will fall on purpose (relatively safely of course) just to get it out of their systems.

Fine balance because as James wrote too much fear and you will bring it about, as Freddy wrote, have no fear and you are going to increase your chances of getting hurt or killed.

For the snatch...just practice, practice, practice? So, I agree..keep training.

He spelled scarred wrong.

I know exactly where you are coming from Freddy. I tore the capsule in my wrist doing a clean and it took me a while before I was confident enough to lift any significant weight. I think it's important to acknowledge your fears, and to not let your fears seize your mind. I've always believed that embracing your fears and charging through them always makes you a stronger person on the other side.

I've quoted this before and I wholeheartedly agree with it:
"Fear causes hesitation, and hesitation will cause your worst fears to come true."
