At some point in your life somebody has probably tried to test your commitment. Maybe you had a girlfriend who's dad busted your balls. Maybe you took a class with a test the first day. Maybe you joined a team that made you sprint miles during the first practice. When Hulk Hogan decided he wanted to become a wrestler he trained with the legendary Hiro Matsuda. On his first day a stable of veterans did one of those aforementioned tests by "exercising him until he was going to faint," and then they took it up a notch and broke his leg. When he returned months later (without the police) they realized how dedicated he was. A year later he was already on the pro circuit.
