Zero Tolerance

Nate: With this guy, with this much heat, you should pass.
Neil: It's worth the stretch.
Nate: This guy can hit or miss. You can't miss once. You sure?
Neil: I am sure.

Watch the rest of "Heat", and you'll know that it doesn't turn out well for Neil. 

When you're young and have a lot of time for training, being sidelined for a while with minor injuries isn't the end of the world because, well, you're young! You will heal. You have the motivation and time to rehab. You know you can come back and be better than ever.

On the other hand, injuries for older lifters are like previous convictions for criminals - you build up enough of them, and one more conviction may put you away for good... "You can't miss once."

Food for thought.
