A couple of things I didn't really get.

If you want a true measure of how strong your deadlift is, go to a powerlifting meet and test it out. You might hit a PR, but don't be surprised if it feels a lot heavier than you think it should!
This makes no sort of sense to me. How can a ''true measure" of your maximum performance be when you're already fatigued? It isn't. It's your best whilst in a fatigued state.

... To cross them over and break their ankles?

If not, it's been too damn long since you've competed and you need to get that fire back!
Surely anyone who thinks that breaking an opponent's ankles is a good example of having 'competitive fire' is a sandwich short of a picnic? Unless I'm taking the expression too literally?
