So I love doing dead lifts but I seriously don't know what they are for I started out with 50lbs I'm doing them with 80 now it's fairly easy I just would like to know what am I working?

Your entire lower body, lower back and not to mention forearms and core. My favorite exercise is dead lift.

Mostly your glutes and the back of your legs.

Depending on which kind of deadlift you are doing, you can isolate different muscles.  Straight leg deadlifts for example work your posterior muscle chain: glutes, hamstrings and lower back.
