Dean Chung 165/181 Raw
Dean resides in Cypress, CA training out of Rise Above Fitness and Ironclub. Outside of the gym, he works at an inpatient facility with Physical and Occupational Therapists. He's currently working to become a Physical Therapist himself. He has a very unique style of training which consists of little to no volume, solely focusing on practicing his 1RM. He has found success with this type of training moving his deadlift from 600 to 805 in under 2 years while losing 30lbs in body weight. Dean started powerlifting 5 years ago and already holds the Calfornia State Deadlift record (165lb class) which he set at his last meet (California State Championships 3/17/18). His most recent numbers on the platform are S-551, B-352, D-661 for a 1565lb total and 502 wilks at 74.5kg. Dean is hoping to capture the American Record for deadlift at 739lbs currently held by Rostislov Petkov.
