Anna WatsonAnna Watson may very well be the strongest female cheerleader in the world.

The University of Georgia student loves hitting the weights, and you can tell.  She’s totally ripped.

It would seem that it’s all natural too.  Watson passed up a huge fitness modeling contract because she refused to use a legal steroid.

“It’s an elite position to be a cheerleader at UGA,” Watson said. “They have hundreds of girls try out, and to be selected out of all of those people to be on the team, it’s kind of a big deal. So those girls were very humble and gracious and patient to help me just learn the basic stuff.”

She’s been competing either as a gymnast or cheerleader since she was just 5 years old.  She can bench press 155 pounds, squat 255 pounds, and dead lift 230 pounds.

She added a staggering four inches of muscle on her arms in a mere 10 months.

Watson could have signed a $75,000 fitness-modeling contract that would have likely given her a lifetime career in modeling, but she declined.

It seems the agent wanted her to use a legal anabolic steroid called Anavar to help her gain about 50 pounds of muscle. Watson, who is deeply religious, declined as she was worried about the effects on her body when she decides to one day have children.

“I don’t serve a modeling agent. I serve the Lord,” Watson said. “I’m not going to compromise my morals and my beliefs just to take pictures. I believe that my body is a temple and a beautiful creation, so I don’t want to put anything into it that can harm it.”

Despite grabbing national attention lately thanks to her bulging muscles, Watson says that’s not really who she is.

“I know that my identity is not in working out,” Watson said. “It’s not who I am. It’s not what I want people to see me as. Yes, on the outside, I’m a very fit individual, but when you get to know me, my life is not all about exercise and working out.”

After cheering at three Georgia home football games this season, Watson is currently on the disabled list right now after rupturing her Achilles tendon.

What do you think of Anna Watson?  Do you find a girl with muscles attractive?
