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.

Steve screams out for another rep…another!!! My knees start shaking.and have been about to buckle . . . a remaining pull for a complete of 49 reps.
