I think this is all rather simple. If you are able to Pendlay row 365 from a dead stop over and over again using strict form, your deadlift will be beastly. Same applies to dumbbell rows.

I certainly can't turn any of this into an equation, but I can say that if you get beastly strong on rows, I am certain it helps your deadlift.

Think about the deadlifter with the weak upper back. As he explodes the bar weak back/lats are going to limit the pull. Because the top is weak it would make sense that extra pressure would be added to the middle and lower back.

I deadlifted last week with weakened lats and it impacted my pulls.
