The deadlift is called the king of all exercises, and with good reason too. There is no other exercise that will put more stress on your central nerve system, and therefore will make you stronger.
It is also an extremely compound exercise and will work on the entire posterior chain as well as the back. The deadlift should be part of everyone’s program, from fitnesser, to powerlifter to bodybuilder.
