A testomony to the energy and energy of the human spirit. The desire to go deeper, a spot inside you have got by no means been earlier than.

I started the deadlift…

At 15 reps I started to weaken. I felt I may get eight extra reps max. Immediately, I’m at 24 reps, I pause. I take into consideration the challenges forward for each Diego and Marissa and the households. In that second, I heard my father’s voice… “Go Robbie Go. You ain’t performed but son.”

I proceed, legs are fried. Once more, I pause, look over to Diego and Marissa who’re cheering and clapping. My coronary heart and spirit roar saying to myself ‘you bought extra’. I proceed. As soon as once more, I look over to the why “each rep issues” . . . Diego and Marissa lives matter. I nod to each; I scream out 5 extra reps. I look over once more, 5 extra reps.

Now, at 44 reps. My legs need out, I gave three extra reps. Large TG brother Steve will get in my face, screams that I promised them 5! I get one other rep. Steve screams out for another rep…another!!! My knees start shaking.and had been about to buckle . . . a closing pull for a complete of 49 reps.
