Maryellen was training me- Kim was slacking at home eating Christies Candies and watching movies about horses.

Maryellen didn’t say “want to do?” she says “lets’ try something, I just want to see.”

She has me do back rows on the cable machine. I haven’t been off the plate for about 5 months… and to my surprise (but not Maryellen’s) I was easily able to pull 20 lbs more then I have done previously. Yeah Plate! The plate strengthened me!

“Now I just want to try something” Maryellen says. She instructs me to do a squat- a deep squat; I could never get into this deep of a squat before plate training.

“It works! Ladies and gentlemen”
