The deadlift is the simplest exercise in the gym, and the one that dates back the furthest into history. Thousands of years ago, it was the caveman who could pick up the biggest rock who could build the strongest fort. Many exercises, including the bench press and squat, depend upon suits and rules and technique. The deadlift goes above all of this. When it comes to the deadlift, you either defeat gravity, or you do not. You either move a weight from grounded to upright, or you do not. It's man versus metal in the best way!

There are some weight lifting exercises, which are targeted directly to the development of Glute muscles. Deadlifts are such weight lifting exercises with isolated benefits for the glutes.

Dorian Yates started the trend in the 1990s by beating far freakier bodybuilders with much better arms and chests, because of his superior back thickness. Ronnie Coleman picked up on this trend. His back was wider than anyone else’s, and he won 8 straight Olympia titles by simply outclassing competitors from the back. Once Coleman injured his back and didn’t have that advantage, Jay Cutler, who now owns the biggest and baddest back in bodybuilding, promptly beat him.
