When I was in high school, to wrestle heavy weight, you had to be between 216 and 275. I wrestled 215 when I was in school, and I was trying to drop to 189. I remember seeing the kids that were up to 275 and thinking about how big they were. I had to wrestle a few of them, just so someone on the other team had a chance to wrestle.
I never thought I would be excited to be at the weight of a heavy weight. I am at 275! I know it's not an official weigh-in day, but I cheated and checked my weight and was thrilled to see that I am a heavy weight again! My ultimate goal is to be back around the 215 weight class, but I will take the 275 proudly right now.
Boot camp was the hardest to date. If that was the first class I ever went to, I would not have come back. As I was thinking that, it was cool to realize that I survived and did well in such an intense workout. Steve threw at us all sorts of crazy things, and I did it. It's those victories that make this life change worth it!
