#7 - Did he just deadlift all of that with his back?  [+] (2 replies) 11/09/2015 on CRITICAL DAMAGE 0

He had nearly perfect form. On top of that, it looked like he was trying to do his 1RM which kind of throws form out of the window sometimes. It's not terrible for you to not have perfect form for when you are maxing. If you do somehow pull a muscle or something then you shouldn't have been doing the weight in the first place. Injuries from "lifting with your back" and improper form almost always come from overuse or repetition of improper form. If this guy was doing that much weight and had that much of a decent form, then he is 100% going to have near impeccable form with lower weight. On top of that, he does use his back but not in a bad way. He is not arching his back. There are literally lifts designed to work your lower back that look exactly like what he is doing in the latter half of his pull (called good mornings, romanian deadlift, etc). Go back to Bodybuilding.com and critique guys deadlifting 800+ pounds when you probably won't ever get within even 200 pounds of weights like that.

purebred pugs have a ton of genetic defects. when you breed two of them together the next generation is worse because a lack of genetic diversity. Basically they're super inbred retard dogs.
Breeding them with other breeds of dogs however could more or less fix a lot of these problems, however the resulting mutts would no longer be what people refer to as pugs as such their breed would die out.

That's not strictly true. Any responsible breeder, although they are extremely rare, will keep a long record of bloodlines and will put a lot of research into finding a stud dog. I knew a woman who bred boxer dogs and she paid over 5k to get a stud dog from italy.

Also breeding two random breeds together is generally a bad idea. Pugs (as you can see) are brachycephalic, so if you bred a pug with a breed that has a completely different skull shape then you'll have an array of problems and deformities with things such as the teeth, the pallets and how the eyes fit into the skull.

A picture of a pitbull bred cross sausage dog circulated the internet lately, but it had the broad shoulders and big head of a pitbull, but the tiny long body of sausage dog. I can't begin to imagine what spine problems that dog will have later in life. That's one unhealthy-looking mutt.

You also shouldn't breed a bitch with a large male, you'd think this is obvious but we had a yorkshire terrier bitch that someone mated with a lab and she almost died during birth because the puppies were literally too big.

tl;dr being a mutt or pedigree doesn't determine how many health problems the dog will have, it depends on how educated and responsible the breeder is.

Yes! Thank you!
I feel like there's a dwindling number of people who realize there's a distinct difference between a responsible dog breeder who follows a code of ethics and health testing, and breed with soundness, health and temperament in mind rather than simply "purebred" (two dogs who happen to be the same breed) & that there is such a thing as healthy purebred dogs.

A purebred dog that comes from an ethical breeder who does the above and is able to breed around the prominent health problems relative to their breed is more likely to be healthy than a mixed breed dog of unknown parentage. While there have been studies done on purebreds vs mixed breeds, I have serious reservations on the sources of their numbers. I have seen unhealthy mixed breeds. I have seen unhealthy purebreds. However, just because the dogs they used for their study were purebreds - from where did these dogs come from? Any suburban family who decides to breed their Labrador retriever can easily find another Labrador retriever to breed the two together and bam you have a purebred. But if neither have been health screened they can easily reproduce inheritable defects like hip dysplasia. Same would be if they found a poodle to make (god forbid) labradoodles. Poodles and Labs can both get hip dysplasia among other inheritable problems, their mixed breed factor didn't prevent this if both have bad hips in their background.

If you want to guarantee yourself a healthy dog - get one from a source that has the paperwork and the test results to back this up. If you just want a good companion and aren't concerned with what may come over the course of their life then I have zero problems with mixed breeds. But stop convincing yourself and others that mixing two dogs together makes it a magical unicorn unable to get hip dysplasia, luxating patellas, cancer, allergies, thyroid problems, eye problems, joint problems, epilepsy or any other prominent health problems in dogs. Recessive genes, as well as environmental and dietary factors, are pretty widespread between a multitude of existing breeds that can lead them to become afflicted.

I wasn't saying it was the only factor and I apologize if what I said suggested the idea of just finding any random dogs and breeding them together.

I was just saying there is a small grocery list of problems that frequently apply to completely pure bred dogs and it's a factor that can very easily have a negative impact on the next generation for that dog.

Tl;Dr, being a mutt or a pedigree can 'affect' how many health problems the dog will have, even if it's not the only factor.
