Same with our faith. Here in James it says "the testing of your faith produces perseverance or endurance." I love when I hear people talking about flexing your "Faith Muscles". It's so applicable! When we want to see growth in our faith, when we want to be closer to God, to experience MORE of him, we need to flex. Get out of your comfort zone.
Maybe you aren't used to volunteering at church or in the community, that's a great way to flex. Maybe you haven't been tithing at church, that's a major flex. Maybe God is nudging you to call someone, forgive someone, or make amends... HUGE flex here. Or maybe, like the verse says, your facing trials. We are in a battle on this earth, the devil doesn't want to inconvenience you, he wants you dead, crushed, ineffective for the kingdom. SO when you face trials, devastating ones, your faith is being flexed! Trials produce endurance which will produce Character and hope. This hope does not disappoint us. Flex on strong people of faith!

The upper torso should remain stationary as your bring the bar to you and only the arms should move. The forearms should do no other work other than hold the bar.
