Wilbur MillerA look at the great Wilbur Miller, deadlifting 605 and making it look easy, circa 1963.  Miller reported that the back strength developed through deadlifting helped his Olympic lifting totals considerably ~ which is a pretty radical concept these days.  It should also be noted that Miller totaled over 1000 plounds in the three Olympic lifts in only his seventh meet so there just may be something to it.
