Rashi famously writes that the words in the pasuk im bechukosai telechu (26:3) refer to toiling in the study of Torah (ameilus baTorah). A central feature of learning Torah is exerting oneself in studying it. Interestingly, the Ba’al HaTurim here cites the Midrash which comments that the gematria of im bechukosai telechu is the same gematria as the words ameilim divrei torah (the intense study of Torah).
