Anna Watson of the University of Georgia does not look like a typical member of a pep squad. But thanks to a rigorous workout schedule and a disciplined diet, the 5-foot-10 inch Watson sculpted four inches of muscles on her arms in 10 months, according to Red and Black, Georgia’s student newspaper.
A photo of Watson flexing her muscles has made waves on the Internet and on Twitter, and Watson appeared on ABC’s “Good Morning America” on Thursday.
The sculpted Watson was even offered a $75,000 fitness modeling contract, but she turned it down after struggling and failing to gain the required 50 pounds of muscle. She also feared taking legal anabolic steroids, and didn’t want her body to define who she was.
Watson, a former gymnast, even cut back on her workouts out of fear that it was consuming her. She still works out three times a week with the cheerleading squad and five times a week on her own, according to Red and Black.
