“The deadlift is more functional in that it’s very hard to imagine a more useful application of strength than picking heavy shit up off the ground.” – Mark Rippetoe

“Regardless of whether your fitness goals are to “rev up” your metabolism, increase strength or lean body mass, decrease body fat, rehabilitate your back, improve athletic performance, or maintain functional independence as a senior, the deadlift is a marked shortcut to that end. The deadlift keeps company with standing, running, jumping and throwing for functionality but imparts quick and prominent athletic advantage like no other exercise.” – CrossFit Training Guide
