My God, You have created my soul and body, and have commanded me to fervently watch over them; grant me the courage to exert myself to the suitable degree.

I am grateful to You that You have provided me with the necessary vigor to exercise; please continue to guard me from injury during this training, allow me to delight in it, and assist my efforts to strengthen my body, and to lengthen my days in health.

אֲשֶׁר יָצַרְתָּ אֶת נִשְׁמָתִי וְאֶת גּוּפִי
וְצִוִּיתָנִי לִשְׁמֹר אוֹתָם מְאֹד

חנֵּנִי בְּעֹז לְהַמְרִיץ אֶת עַצְמִי בַּמִּדָּה הָרְאוּיָה

מוֹדֶה אֲנִי לְפָנֶיךָ
שֶׁנָּתַתָּ לִי אֶת הַכּוֹחוֹת הַנְּחוּצִים לְהִתְאַמֵּן
כֵּן שׁמְרֵנִי נָא מִפְּגִיעָה בְּאִמּוּן זֶה
שַׂמְּחֵנִי בּוֹ
וְעֲזֹר לְמַאֲמַצַּי לְחַזֵּק אֶת גּוּפִי
וּלְהַאֲרִיךְ אֶת יָמַי בִּבְרִיאוּת
