I started the deadlift…

At 15 reps I started to weaken. I felt I may get 8 extra reps max. All of sudden, I’m at 24 reps, I pause. I consider the demanding situations forward for each Diego and Marissa and the households. In that second, I heard my father’s voice… “Cross Robbie Cross. You ain’t finished but son.”

I proceed, legs are fried. Once more, I pause, glance over to Diego and Marissa who’re cheering and clapping. My center and spirit roar pronouncing to myself ‘you were given extra’. I proceed. As soon as once more, I glance over to the why “each and every rep issues” . . . Diego and Marissa lives topic. I nod to each; I scream out 5 extra reps. I look all over again, 5 extra reps.

Now, at 44 reps. My legs need out, I gave 3 extra reps. Large TG brother Steve will get in my face, screams that I promised them 5! I am getting any other rep. Steve screams out for yet one more rep…yet one more!!! My knees start shaking.and have been about to buckle . . . a last pull for a complete of 49 reps.
