Last month I was training with CB and KB or a whole month at least 4 to 6 days a week. Doing other supplement exercises like Pullups and doing a lot more grip work all the time. No deadlifts, then I maxed out in deadlifts without training it for a month or so and it was up like 40pds. How the hell did that happen? I am wondering if the CB and more grip workouts had something to do with it, but don't know why???

There are many theories as to why this happens so frequently. The most solid theory regards every "raw" (no strap, belt, wrap) athlete's weakest link - the grip. Because of the displaced center of mass, Clubbells transfer into gains in conventional strength training methods.
Commonly known as the "what the hell" effect.
CBs probably encourage/illicit this effect more then any other modality due to their almost immediate exposure and long term fixing of gaps in your strength chain.
Shows you the shortcomings of some other modalities. What good is the ability to lift x in a certain lift if you can't express it in the world due to lack of core or grip.

Bill is correct that lack of effective Core Activation and breathing for performance limits access to strength reserves for most people - including even experienced athletes.

The strength of your core is the foundation upon which every load you bear will be stabilized and moved.
The strength of your grip is the weakest link in determining the load which you can hold.
Clubbells are the best equipment to train the body's strongest and weakest link towards one another.
