Deadlift is a weightlifting term that refers to the action of lifting a weight from the floor to a standing position, gripping a bar. David Lowe is currently performing the heaviest unrecorded deadlift, performed outside competition rules, or any rules, by holding the severed cable of a thousand-pound hotel elevator containing his wife and an undetonated bomb, while a killer in a sackcloth mask looks on, and a hit man holds a loaded gun to his head.
David is no superhero; he has no special abilities other than mere human strength and the will to save his wife. He's been holding the elevator for one minute and 36 seconds, bloodying his hands, tearing muscle fibers and cracking bones. But push him to his limit and he'll dig deep, find more. Because when everything is on the line, it's not about muscle any more - it's about heart...and never, ever, giving up on what you love.
