Using the deadlift to improve endurance is about as useful as going to spin class to get stronger.
What are your goals, Steve? Based on the questions you've asked, you're interested in getting ripped abs; you don't understand why anyone would get big and strong but sacrifice abs; and you want to combine strength and endurance.
Spell out your goals and what you're willing to give up for them (strength, muscle), and we can help you. Is this for cycling? Do you realize some extra strength will help you? Do you realize that vastly improved strength with little bodyweight gained will improve your strength to bodyweight ratio?
I'm not trying to be rude, but it seems like you brush off a lot of the advice you receive while still asking questions. You could get better advice by being more specific.
