Tanna Cochrane – Mustangs Ahead

(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL)- Is it a weird concept for a girl to be a weightlifter?  LRHS girls weightlifting team member Peyton Meyer, junior, stated, “I don’t think it’s weird because boys and girls work out the same.”

Many people may not be able to develop such a confident answer so quickly, but Meyer said this sport is a great way to exercise for both males and females.

The LRHS girls weightlifting team has been very successful throughout the years and they aspire to do the same this year.

A great aspect of the sport is not only do you become healthier and fitter, but it is also a great way to prepare for other sports. Meyer added, “I would like to get stronger in track and field.”

Many believe that this sport is mostly about yourself as you achieve a personal best and work at your own pace, however, team member and junior Maddie Koczersut stated, “My favorite part in the sport is helping others with their technique.”
