Rudy likes to call me a, “gymnast with useless legs.” Which, to be fair, is pretty accurate, when I walked into Outlaw my backsquat was a whopping 175# pounds. Rudy put me on a squat cycle, told me to gain 10 pounds and I panicked.

The twice weekly weigh-ins as a gymnast started when I was 12, and long skinny lines were the ideal. I was constantly anxious about being “up” and learned to cheat the slides on the scale to shave off a pound or two for the chart. As soon as gymnastics was over I started avoiding all scales, closed my eyes at doctors appointments and asked the nurse to not mention the number out loud.

Then getting pinned under cleans that I couldn’t stand up started to piss me off.
