MW Investigates: University of Georgia Cheerleader Anna Watson Claims to be Natural

Anna Watson

Every now and then, the general naivete of the mainstream media is exposed for the bodybuilding community to mock. Usually this occurs when an obvious steroid user (Chael Sonnen, Sean Sherk, Phil Baroni, Cyborg Santos) with hyper-muscularity tests positive and then makes some absurd claim about never having even heard of steroids or having taken some obscure supplement no one has ever heard of and claiming that the manufacturer — rather than stuff the cannister with $.42 of worthless maltodextrin powder, actually went to the great effort of illegally obtaining raw steroid compounds at a far more significant price and spiked their product with juice solely to improve buyer performance. Yeah, right.

So when I came across this photo of University of Georgia cheerleader Anna Watson flexing her biceps and putting thousands of juiced female figure, fitness, bikini and bodybuilding competitors to shame, and then having the gall to claim that she chose a cheerleading gig at Georgia over a ‘$75,000 fitness model contract’ because the agency wanted her to take the oral steroid Anavar, I had to laugh.

Anna Watson Natural

After all, here is a girl whose steroid use is obvious to even the most novice of bodybuilders and yet somehow the mainstream media is running with some home-spun tale of how this totally jacked-to-the-nines, testosterone-laden female was nearly ‘victimized’ by some unscrupulous ‘modeling agency’. To top it all off, like thousands of other narcissistic and brainwashed delusional liars, she gives all credit to Jesus. And by Jesus, she probably means the code word she texts to her dealer meaning ‘oxandrolone’.

Adding fuel to the liar, I mean fire, is her claim that she ‘turned down’ a $75,000 fitness model contract. Really, Anna? I mean, that’s a terrific DHV (Demonstration of Higher Value), but it certainly doesn’t make that ridiculous claim true. Anna, you’re a slightly above average-looking girl with nice biceps. Sure, you could probably make $75,000/year working the webcam for the muscle schmoe logging on to with his penis firmly in hand, but no one is paying ANY fitness model a $75,000/year contract. But if Anna’s covertly genius plan comes to fruition and this ‘news item’ generates enough water cooler talk, I’m sure that Playboy’s Hugh Hefner will be happy to cough up that much for the public to see more than just her biceps. At the very least, it could bring the word ‘penoris’ into the collective consciousness and the entire Bulldog student body would learn if the curtains match the drapes.

Anna Watson & Natural

A Mere Mortal and Anna Watson

I’d like to think that major media outlets would actually think for a moment before running a story like this, but hey, if the skinny-fat journalists of the world want to bury their pencil-necks in the sand and buy this whopper without a single skeptical question about how this one cheerleader has 40 lbs more muscle than any of the other girls in the University of Georgia weight room, then I guess that’s just what passes for journalism these days. Because you, Muscleweek reader, and I know the difference between a natural female and a hormonized one.

Nice try, Anna. You can pull the wool over some of the people’s eyes, but not the Sherlock Holmeses here at Muscleweek. To put it rather bluntly, to those of us whose testosterone use hasn’t clouded our brains, your steroid use is quite elementary, my Dear Watson.

    Is it possible for a woman to develop muscles such as Anna Watson without the use of steroids?

      Yes, it is possible!

    • tasd22 February 2, 2012 at 8:56 pm - Reply

      Yes – it is very possible! For those out there making negative comments suggesting that it is attributed to steroids could possibly be incorrect. I was in track and field at a young age and in High School and never once took any supplements – they use to call me “muscles” in school and at the time, I did not appreciate the natural muscles I had, thinking myself it was not natural for a female to be toned until I was much older. At 53 I still have those muscles – maybe not as big as hers, but still have people asking if I workout and I don’t spend much time at all at the gym. So NO Way – don’t judge a book by it’s cover!

    Steroids look at the growth of the muscle it looks weird. Look at the forearm and tricep muscles. You can try to debate it but if you do the research will also find out that girls are the #1 users of steroids dwarfing men by a huge amount.

    Do you have any evidence of this (i.e., that she is, or has, used steroids)? Or, is this just uninformed speculation pretending to be a credible assertion?

    The “author” then wrote: “To top it all off, like thousands of other [people who’s opinions and beliefs I don’t like], she gives all credit to Jesus.”

    Why write something so nasty and patently false? It only speaks to your character (or the absence thereof), NOT the target of your marginally literate missive.

    Well I am not the expert that you are (are at least claim to be) but I do not see her muscle as that extreme, I see some woman in the gym with arms similair in size. Also, watch any gymnastic match and you’ll see 1/2 the woman with guns like this. I didn’t realize how many woman are juicing…rolling eyes.

    Yes it is possible. There are many legal supplements other than steroids that give results. I know that many women looking for size choose Human Growth Hormone, which is prescribed by a doctor (I would strongly recommend reading the side effects first).

    Your accusations in this article somewhat anger me. I always hear guys in the gym looking at a bigger guy, saying, “Oh he has to be juicing” or “That guy’s definitely on roids.” Those accusations and your accusations are as juvenile as a child claiming the opposing little league team was cheating because their team lost. Of all of the people that I could hear this from, I am actually surprised that I am reading this off of a web site that is about muscle-building and fitness. I believe a goal in your industry is to convince people that results are attainable without illegal steroids.

    As for your “investigation” which shows no evidence to support your accusations, I would strongly have to disagree with you on this one. I saw this girl in the gym at West Georgia almost every day (kinda hard not to notice a girl repping 135 on bench). If you look at her picture above when she was at West Georgia, before she could put “thousands of…bodybuilding competitors to shame,” she still has broad shoulders and her biceps are still defined. Her gains were normal and gradual, not like an individual on steroids. Was this 100% natural? I doubt it. But with the amount of hormonal supplements that are legal, you can’t be so quick to throw the steroid card at her. I honestly just do not think it is right for you to make such an accusation when you have no evidence to support this “investigation.” I suggest you continue to write how to properly do a lateral pull down, and leave the steroid crystal ball in Barry Bonds’ hand.

      Bull-fucking-shit. Unless she has close to 0% bodyfat and implants or stuffs her bra, as well as literally sleeps in a gym, it’s simply a case of “she is full of shit.” Even the most hard-core body-building women at my gym don’t look that much like men.

      You want the telling factor? LOOK AT THEIR JAW-LINE. Literally. That is the tell of 99.999% of steroid or HGH users. There is NO exception.

      Just because you get a hard-on from seeing a pic of a woman with large muscles doesn’t mean you should deny the fact that she’s taken something, buddy.

    I love the people that claim she obtained that physique “naturally”. Gimme a break…The same people that lift weights for a week after each New Year and or spend 2 hrs in a gym but only 20 minutes actually pushing weights.
    I have shared many gyms with Mrs. Olympia Fitness/Bodybuilding women and have seen female transformations as such. This girl may claim to be natural now but she definitely has taken something packing more punch then Anavar(which is lol in itself if you know anything bout Roids)

    Wow, really. Can a female deliver that kind of muscle and power with out riods…Yes, I’ve seen it numerous times. Look at some not all but some track and field athletes. They are just as cut and built as she is. I’m not saying she’s not on or on but females can gain that body type with dedication and hard work. A lot of people that use roids are those that can’t acheive that definition on their own. They’ve hit that wall. People believed my wife (girlfriend at the time) was on the juice because she shredded and had arms and legs people dreamed of. But all that came from years of track, basketball, soccer, soft ball and weight training. She stayed in the gym year round. I watched her get bigger and more defined over a 4year period to look just as big and cut as this chick. So unless you know and saw what she did every day for years, who are you to say she’s juiced.

    I’ve been in gyms for 25+ years and have seen and done it all… and I can tell you beyond any shadow of a doubt she is definitely using. It’s nothing for a few small cycles to make a fairly athletic woman display the density this girl has, it’s been done countless times. The only shame is that she is dishonest about her little secret; she should’ve just come clean because her story is complete idiocy to those of us in the know.

    I have to wonder how a young woman managed to get guns like this at a young age, over time yes. I’m not hating on her just hope she doesn’t hurt herself. If this is natural then I can see her being paid $75.000 for a fitness show.

  16. tbal January 31, 2012 at 5:36 pm - Reply

    While it might not be steroids that she used, to believe she is “natural” is as naive as believing everything a used car salesman tells you. The human body can only produce so much growth hormone in a given period of time; the female body can only produce so much testosterone in a given period of time (without becoming “male”). Any endocrinologist would agree that any female who can gain 40 lbs of muscle in a few months either has a serious metabolic disorder or is otherwise supplementing their diet in a way that has dramatically altered their hormone levels.

    • Andrew January 31, 2012 at 8:40 pm - Reply

      She didn’t gain 40 lbs of muscle in a few months. The writer said she was 40 lbs more muscle than her friends, but his sources for this “investigation” have been nothing but opinions so there’s no telling.

  17. Jaime January 31, 2012 at 6:23 pm - Reply

    It could be natural. Why not? I’m going to speak in general terms here, but a lot of women are afraid to build muscle, because it’s seen as “unfeminine,” right? So, they would never eat weight-gainer or do anything else that a man would do that would help them build muscle. Now, if you take a woman who has been athletic all her life and/or doesn’t give a sh** if she looks “unfeminine,” you really don’t know what her body may be capable of producing, given enough hard work and discipline. Unless you have conclusive evidence, you can’t know if she’s using steroids or testosterone. I say we giver her the benefit of the doubt.

    The author is patently jealous. This sort of size and shape is attainable naturally.

    There have been many lies purported in regard to the attainment of a muscular physique. The current mode or theory “du jour” is that steroids are necessary.

    I’m here to tell you they are not, you just need the correct Protein/Carb/Fat ratio and sensible legal supplementation. I’m Pat Banya.

    You people are idiots she is not using I went to high school with girls that had a similar build. It dosent take alot to look like that if you eat right and work out the right muscles that give you those kind of cuts. Plus protein will help you build lean muscle which is not a steroid and is completely legal. To all the morons that says she uses how about you try working out for a change and see how cut you’ll get if your as dedicated as she is.

      Your full of sh** big sexy. You have never seen a girl with arms that big that hasn’t taken steroids. I’ve worked out for many, many years and can tell you that it takes a long time to get what she has. Even with eating right and all the protein you can choke down.

    Impossible. It’s hard for a MAN to get those guns without taking something. Female track and field athletes look like that because they are all ON something. Women are not capable of producing that sort of muscle naturally. Anyone who has spent a lot of time in a gym would seriously question this girl’s methods.

    I suggest that unbelief, without knowing much about a person who proclaims her faith requires her not to use steroids, does not justify the conclusion reached by this article.

    Yes, this young woman is something different from the norm, and given the “norm” , she triggers questions, but I would suggest caution before making such reckless remarks.

    Do you proof that pro wrestlers are on steroids or that politicians lie? Need to see things for what they are. I know most people what to believe in good and justice but that is just not the world we live in, be smart and don’t trust anyone until they prove otherwise

    I’m hesitant to accuse someone of lying without proof.

    It is possible that she is not using anything, but has a severe endocrine imbalance. It could be that the only reason she doesn’t have a beard is that she has had laser treatments.

    Yeah. The achilles heel rupture does cast a bit of a cloud. It could absolutely be a fluke, but certain substances have been linked to an increased risk of tendon/ligament rupture.

    • D Paul February 3, 2012 at 9:45 pm - Reply

      Very good and astute comment about the tendon. The tendon will rupture on athletes when they are carrying too much weight for their natural frame. Chris Pronger, hockey, put on some 70 pounds in sixth months. He went from 180 to 250. This is just not natural. This young woman went from 125 to 175 in the same period of time. This is even more amazing.

    It’s genetics. It *could* be steroids, but let’s save the histrionics until there’s some evidence.

    I used to know a girl of a similar stature. She started climbing and just packed muscle and weight on like no one else. Hardly ate protein either – just porridge and noodles.

    Some people just build muscle very easily – male or female. Her lifting stats are very believable – I think part of it’s just low body fat.

    To me the photo’s look photo shopped to make her look bigger than she is. The length of her arms seems out of proportion.

    However having used myself and trained women who have and have not used steroids. I can without doubt say her level of musculature is achievable without steroids.

    First, pictures can be deceiving. How many people have seen her in person? Second, I don’t see anybody putting their money where their mouth is and offering a blood test to see if she is on it. So everything people are saying is pure speculation. You can suspect all you want, some women like some men are gifted with straight DNA and hormonal levels that allow them to grow better. You can take two guys and one can have 650 nl/dl of testosterone and another 975 nl/dl. The same thing is with women. Some women can have higher test levels. She doesn’t look like a Muscle and Fitness babe and that is how everyone is acting.

    I went to high school with this girl and know she would never use steroids. She is not that kind of person. She has always been physically fit and did gymnastics for a long time so of course she is muscular.

    I am actually friends with her. We grew up together in Fayetteville and attended the same private school. Ever since we were small children she has been a dedicated (to the extreme ) and talented athlete and gymnast. When she says she does not use steroids, I believe her 100%. I think the author here is making too many assumptions and being just straight up hateful. It’s Anna’s choice to live how she wants. Me? Hell, I have no problem with using anavar to gain an edge ….but that’s just me.

    Wow, good job man. Way to hide behind the Internet and bash someone with NO evidence. You must have really been desperate for a topic to start slewing unsupported nonsense like this. When studying writing one of the first things you learn is that if an author uses terms like “it’s obvious”, they are lazy and ignorant. Do some research and write an article based on facts. You might even start to sound like a writer.
