Hi Ben

Both. It's not as simple as that kind of compartmentalization when you start to do more functional movements like the deadlift. This is why the Olympic athletes prefer this kind of lift, incidentally, but the point is that it is both, and so you have to manage the other training you do around it.

Good luck
