Mandeep weightlifting



Head Coach

I have a background in track and field, but I began to pursue strength training when I was 18 and continued for about a year or so. While strength training, I was able to hit a 505lb squat, 505lb deadlift, and 415lb bench while weighing around 285-295lb. A hip injury unfortunately put a hiccup in my strength progress, so there I was, 19 years old, sitting at an unhealthy bodyweight of 315lb. I made a very conscious decision and a promise to myself to lose weight (since I wasn’t able to lift heavy at the time due to the injury). I cut down from to 180lb in less than a half year

I believe strength and speed are both skills that can be worked on, and most people can do amazing things that they never thought possible. My goal is to coach at the highest level one day. I’ve been a Weightlifting coach since 2016 and started the Deepstrength team back in 2017 I have coached multiple athletes up to the Junior/Senior Provincial, Junior/Senior National level, and currently one at the international level. Here’s one quote I’ll leave you with that will give you an insight on myself, “Difficulties in life are intended to make us better, not bitter.” – Dan Reeves
