So why deadlift?
If you’re a powerlifter, its part of your three lift total. For physique athletes, its a great way to develop your physique. It sort of like a swiss army knife. It does a lot of things really well. The deadlift has a very simple learning curve and it forces your body to work together in concert. For example, for traditional athletes, speed is king. Speed is king on the court and on the field. One of the best ways to get faster is to improve your strength to body weight ratio in the deadlift. If you can deadlift 2.5 x your bodyweight you YOU WILL BE MORE EXPLOSIVE! – Josh Bryant MS
