Deadlifts clearly improved across the board and yet we don’t deadlift all that often. Why? Squats, Cleans, and Snatches are why. Our programming focus skews more towards those lifts for power and pulling/lower body strength development with only occasional deadlifts for strength or conditioning. The Oly movements incorporate a deadlift in the 1st pull and the front/back squat improves trunk and posterior chain  strength.
