WORLD-CLASS LIFTERS Eau Claire has some impressive female powerlifters, including a 17-year-old junior at North High WORDS: BARBARA ARNOLD // PHOTOS: ANDREA PAULSETH


hen you watch Sam Kroll – a petite, five-foot, 17-year-old junior at North High School in Eau Claire – deadlift 325 pounds, you’d never know that she was born early, a preemie coming into the world, after six-and-a-half months, weighing one pound, 11 ounces. Now, she’s on Team USA headed to the 2015 World Powerlifting Championships at summer’s end in Prague, Czech Republic, after winning the teen division of her 63 kilgram (138 pound) weight class at the 2015 USA Powerlifting Men’s & Women’s Championships in San Antonio, Texas in mid-May. Powerlifting is a drug-free strength sport composed of three lifts: the squat, the bench, and the deadlift. At a meet, every lifter gets three attempts at each. At the end, the highest successful lifts are added together. Correct form is critical, and certain commands must be followed for a lift to be successful. There are three judges. The head judge is in front, and two are on the sides. They evaluate the lift from all angles. Besides the 325-pound dead lift, Sam’s personal bests are a 370-pound squat and a 220-pound bench. We caught up with Sam in the North High weight-room on a Friday evening when the Powerlifting Club of about 10 high school students and their two coaches practice for two-and-a-half hours.

(who is also on her way to Worlds in the 19-to-23-year-old collegiate division) is already a national and world title holder in her own right and an art major at UWEau Claire. Mariah echoed the fact that Sam is a special lifter. “Sam is consistent and dedicated,” Mariah said. “Powerlifting is a lifestyle. Few teenagers can do that, and Sam is doing it.” It takes a lot more than talent alone to be a successful powerlifter. Since Sam started, she said she eats better and makes better food choices. “I eat what tastes good to fuel my body. This includes protein like chicken, pork, and eggs – as well as protein powder, Muscle Milk, and protein bars. I also eat lots of fruits and vegetables,” she said. “For Worlds, I need to gain seven pounds to move up from 131 to 138 pounds. So if I want ice cream or Goldfish, I eat it.” While Sam puts powerlifting first as an extracurricular activity, she also works part-time at the Eau Claire Animal Hospital and Shopko, in addition to a rigorous schedule of Advanced Placement classes at North High School. Her dream is to become a veterinarian. Upon graduation, she plans to attend UW-River Falls in its pre-vet program, graduate in three years, then follow that up with four years at the UW-Madison School of

“POWERLIFTING IS A LIFESTYLE. FEW TEENAGERS CAN DO THAT, AND SAM IS DOING IT.” – Mariah Hamm, assistant coach at North and UWEC powerlifter “Before my first day of practice, I had never touched a weight or barbell in my life,” Sam said. “The summer before my freshman year, a softball teammate’s brother said that I had the perfect body for lifting. And I just had to join.” “Apparently, short girls are good for lifting,” she says, laughing. “We don’t have to move the bar as far.” Her coach Kyle Nelson, a powerlifting record-holder, national champion, and world competitor in his own right (and now a senior in actuarial science at UW-Eau Claire) credits Sam’s dedication and work ethic for her success. “Sam has never missed a single day of practice in three years,” Nelson said. “When she’s here, she gives 100 percent and is totally focused.” Her assistant coach, Mariah Hamm,

Veterinary Medicine. Sam said her parents and her extended, blended family, are workingclass and incredibly supportive, but she admits that she held off on allowing them to attend meets until this past year because she did not want the “added pressure.” Special gear and uniforms are required for the sport and they aren’t cheap. Her special shoes alone cost $215. Add that to the wrist wraps, belt, knee wraps, and special lift uniforms and shirts made of sturdy material. Initially, her coach and others loaned her suits and gear until this year, when she bought brand new gear herself. See below for how you can help defray the cost of Sam’s dream of a world championship!

PREMIER POWERLIFTERS. We’re not sure exactly how much weight North High School powerlifter Sam Kroll is lifting in these photos, but it’s probably a ton. Yeah? Can we agree on a ton? She’ll be heading to the World Powerlifting Championships in the Czech Republic with her coach, Mariah Hamm (above, spotting).

FEEL THE BURN The calories burned * by doing things not normally associated with exercise * based on a 150-pound person doing each activity for 30 minutes // stats from sparkpeople & Health status

If you skip someplace instead of walk, you burn almost four times the amount of calories! No wonder elementary schoolers are so dang skinny.

Scuba diving: 242



Skipping: 379

While you’re looking for treasure this summer in sunken ships, don’t be surprised when you look “ship shape” once you surface.


Ultimate frisbee: 234 Burning twice the amount of calories as disc golf, it’s no wonder it has “ultimate” in the name.

Chopping wood: 206 There’s a reason Paul Bunyan was all burly, and it ain’t just all that body hair, you know what we mean?

Fencing: 195 To all you jocks who bullied all of LARPers in school, don’t be surprised when they get all ripped and start looking for revenge.


mowing the lawn: 182 Pushing a power mower not only makes your lawns look fabulous, but with the extra pounds you’re shedding, you’ll be just as fabulous in no time.


Disco dancing: 182 Make sure your ’fro is on point before heading to the club.

Heavy house cleaning: 148

Ping-pong: 111

Gardening: 180

We don’t know what to say here, other than the people living in light houses got a bad break.

You almost burn more if you’re bad at it.

You may think this is a lot for something simple like gardening, but believe it or not this doesn’t include any digging (just weeding and general work), which runs about 294 calories per half hour.

Sex: 144 Before you get too excited, keep in mind that cleaning gutters is way ahead of this on the list.

Cleaning gutters: 180

Hacky sack: 141

With these kinds of benefits, who would have thought it would take so much begging for this annual cleaning burden to get done.

Nice! You can burn calories at every Phish concert in the ’90s! That’s great! Hint: You burn more if you wear your knit baja sweatshirt.

Unicycling: 174

Raking: 132

Not just for clowns anymore, these tricky bikes utilize a whole new set of muscles and turn a lot more heads in the process.

Combine this with mowing the lawn or cleaning gutters to shed pounds doing all sorts of pesky chores! Bonus!

Painting a house: 171

It’s like jumping rope, only with no rope, less work, and much more fun. So far as we know, double-bounces do not double the amount of calories burned.

If painting a picture is 147 calories, then the difference here must be climbing a ladder. Paint cans are heavy, too!

Trampoline: 111

Acting & Playing Music: 105 Adds to the cultural landscape, impresses your crushes, and makes you slimmer; what’s not to like?

Walking backwards: 102


It looks weird, sure, but does more than a typical walk and helps your spine, balance, metabolism, and energy levels, apparently.

OTHER BURNERS: Fishing: 100 Hula hooping: 90 Croquet: 90 Brushing your teeth: 85 Billiards & darts: 83 Shopping: 80 Driving: 72 Studying: 63 Playing board games: 54 Writing: 36 Sleeping: 31
