#429 – Hunter McIntyre

Listen now

Sevan Matossian (00:03):

BA I’m more live. I never get sick. I never get sick. I’m one of those people who says that shit. I’m like sick for the 15th time in the last three months. I think I’ve been sick more in the last three months than I’ve been sick last three years. Uh, yesterday five rounds, 12 deadlifts at 2 25 9 burpee box get overs at 40 inch. Oh wow. Wow. Five 12 deadlifts at two 20. So you did, uh, what was that? 60 60 deadlifts at 2 25. Wow. I got, I, I hadn’t done a, I hadn’t done a cleaning jerk in, I don’t know, probably two years had been forever. And then, uh, a couple days ago I did, um, 10 calories on the assault bike, one cleaning jerk with 95, 10 calories on the assault bike two all the way up to 10. And I did the 10 on broken 10 cleaning jerks with 95. Pretty good for not having done that. Like in two years. And someone came up behind me and was like pushing down their thumbs on my traps and I wanted to fucking punch throw punch ’em.

Hunter McIntyre (01:15):

Hi. Do you wear sweat bands during this podcast? Because the aggressive amount of, are you like an aggressive frisk sweater?

Sevan Matossian (01:22):

I, um, I wear these for the opposite reasons

Hunter McIntyre (01:28):

Because you wanna create

Sevan Matossian (01:29):

Sweat. Yeah. Yeah. I I’m trying to, they’re super thick by the way, the Seon CEO, sweat bands are on their way. Um, I, these are so it’s cold, a little cold in here and I put these on to stay warm.

Hunter McIntyre (01:40):

I like that.

Sevan Matossian (01:41):

And that’s it. Yeah. I don’t use sweat bands to, um, the, I overheat really easy if I put a, uh, two rubber,

Hunter McIntyre (01:50):

Just some light reading for this morning.

Sevan Matossian (01:53):

Hey, I’m stupid. Stupid.

Hunter McIntyre (01:57):

Um,

Sevan Matossian (01:58):

Listen, if you want, let me tell you something. If you want to get strong, throw that in in fast and know how to fuck.

Hunter McIntyre (02:10):

Yeah.

Sevan Matossian (02:10):

Throw those books away. Uh, hunter macintyre.com/training, kinda joking, but like not joking at all.

Hunter McIntyre (02:18):

Right here. I had a world class designer create that AKA my roommate and we do it. We do it big. You just missed out. You could have gotten shreded this summer. We had this lean and mean challenge where we’re basically kinda like it’s an athlete summer camp. We’re taking everybody through this special experience and I didn’t see your name in the signups.

Sevan Matossian (02:38):

When does it start?

Hunter McIntyre (02:39):

It started on Monday.

Sevan Matossian (02:41):

Is it at the cabin?

Hunter McIntyre (02:44):

No, this is a virtual summer camp. You know, the thing is we do real real summer, like summer camps with athletes, but I just get these like DMS constantly from people that are like, how do I get involved? And I was like, I’m gonna try to do something virtual. And it was the most successful thing we’ve ever done with our, our company, which is awesome. But uh,

Sevan Matossian (03:01):

Wow. Hey, you know, who’s kill, you know, who’s, who’s killing it virtually too. Is street parking.

Hunter McIntyre (03:06):

Yeah, it’s unbelievable. You know,

Sevan Matossian (03:09):

And people love their platform too. It, it is, it is nuts. Yesterday. Two people, two old people told me they signed up for street parking cuz they were on my podcast.

Hunter McIntyre (03:18):

So do you guys wanna know what I do with my team? Um, I I’m

Sevan Matossian (03:22):

You boot lake street parking your whole summer camp is boot lake street park. You just steal the <laugh>. No, <laugh>

Hunter McIntyre (03:28):

I basically I’m like, I’m like guys, here’s what I want you to do. I want you to go out and I want you to sign up for every single platform. And I want you to find out what these people are doing to create growth a community, whatever it is because why are we here? And there, there, right? Come back to me with information.

Sevan Matossian (03:46):

Yep.

Hunter McIntyre (03:47):

I only have great things to say about the people who create street parking, cuz they’re helping people. They’re doing amazing things. But we went into their Facebook group. Yeah. And it makes no sense. It’s people like, Hey, I have a toothache. Does anybody know a good doctor around here? Like I couldn’t figure out what the heck was going on.

Sevan Matossian (04:07):

Super community, super community.

Hunter McIntyre (04:09):

It was a community. It wasn’t a fitness group. It was just like people were like, yeah. You know my sister and I are fighting. What do you guys think? It, it was, it was super interesting. Like that was the most interesting thing I saw about street parking. It was more of like a, it was a chatty Cathy club more than like a workout club.

Sevan Matossian (04:26):

Hey, check this out. Um, uh, if, if I was going to let’s say have a, um, gymnastics coach for my kid or a dentist or uh, uh, someone do the, uh, like, uh, you know, install solar panels on my roof. They would be at the 51 yard line. If I just found out they were a CrossFitter.

Hunter McIntyre (04:46):

Oh, you mean like just you immediately would be that much more pumped.

Sevan Matossian (04:50):

Yeah, I, yeah. I, I just, I, I would find, I find so much value in that, in that lifestyle and that behavior. And I think the street parking community is the same way. Like if you’re, if you’re, if you’re a street parking cat and you find, well, look at this, the hunter academy of strength. If I know someone went to that and, and, and they’re like, and they’re doing like the electricity on my house, like I’m stoked. I know that, that

Hunter McIntyre (05:15):

You comfortable.

Sevan Matossian (05:16):

I know they give a shit. You are, you are somehow hooked up doing the training of one of the fittest human beings who’s ever walked on the planet. I can chat with them about how you just set the world record at the high rocks. And there’s, there’s the accountability responsibility component that like the dude who belongs to, uh, who has the season passed to Disneyland. I don’t, I don’t have,

Hunter McIntyre (05:36):

Yeah.

Sevan Matossian (05:36):

The dude has the season passed at. Disneyland’s gonna eat all my fucking ding dongs in my fridge.

Hunter McIntyre (05:41):

You got a good point, man. When was the last time we did this? I feel like we haven’t seen each other on this platform for gosh knows how long? 2, 3, 4 weeks. It’s been a long time.

Sevan Matossian (05:53):

I wanna admit something to you.

Hunter McIntyre (05:54):

Mm-hmm <affirmative> is this a breakup?

Sevan Matossian (05:59):

Hardly. Um, do you know when you, do you have a dog?

Hunter McIntyre (06:03):

No.

Sevan Matossian (06:04):

Well, when you have a dog and you come home, um, dogs get really excited.

Hunter McIntyre (06:10):

Yep.

Sevan Matossian (06:10):

And that’s how I feel. When you come on the show, I feel like I’m a dog. And like my owner just came home and I get all excited. Like my tail starts wagging so hard that I can’t like, it affects like my whole body, but I, I

Hunter McIntyre (06:23):

Told you sweat bands on today.

Sevan Matossian (06:24):

I told myself, just be. And then, and then people complain, cause I’m talking too much and I’m not letting you talk, but really it’s just like, I’m just in a frenzy that you’re here.

Hunter McIntyre (06:32):

It’s enthusiasm. Give me a second. I gotta close the door morning

Sevan Matossian (06:36):

Brock. I refuse.

Hunter McIntyre (06:38):

You gotta, what we should do is you should bring my roommate Brock on your show. One day we’re complete opposites, complete, complete opposites. This guy I’m athlete wild man, always moving a million miles an hour. Brock is monk, meditator, artist, all this kind of stuff. Probably one of the most intellectually evolved human beings I’ve ever met in my entire life.

Sevan Matossian (07:04):

Wow.

Hunter McIntyre (07:05):

Yeah. You know, like the raw eye that you had on

Sevan Matossian (07:09):

Oh yeah, yeah, yeah.

Hunter McIntyre (07:10):

Similar kind of style. Like a modern day guru.

Sevan Matossian (07:15):

Is he sun in his bong hole? Like that guy

Hunter McIntyre (07:18):

Brock’s probably had his butt hole in the sun a couple times.

Sevan Matossian (07:21):

Right.

Hunter McIntyre (07:22):

But he’s, he’s so smart. He’s so, so, so smart. Um, so like anytime I have something that I’m thinking about, we’ll just sit down. We usually, we have these kind of like spreads in the, in the house where I’m on the couch and he’s on the couch or he is maybe standing in the kitchen and we’ll just, we’ll go at it for a long time. Not like at it, but just kind of more in and out of it. Um, and we have such different perspectives, but we also respect each other’s perspectives. Uh, it’s a game changer. Very smart dude. Kinda give 10 day silent meditations.

Sevan Matossian (07:53):

Oh, is he V POA practitioner?

Hunter McIntyre (07:56):

Hey Brock

Sevan Matossian (07:58):

V PO V POA with a V

Hunter McIntyre (08:01):

V POA

Sevan Matossian (08:02):

V POA practitioner.

Hunter McIntyre (08:05):

I wouldn’t know. Wouldn’t know meditates like an hour or so every single morning.

Sevan Matossian (08:11):

This is your only picture from the championship.

Hunter McIntyre (08:15):

No, no, there’s a couple, there’s a couple like slow motion things. And uh,

Sevan Matossian (08:21):

Is that your dad?

Hunter McIntyre (08:22):

That’s my dad. That’s pat Dukes. That’s uh, Dougie fresh.

Sevan Matossian (08:26):

Were you surprised to see him there?

Hunter McIntyre (08:28):

Well, that’s the first time he’s traveled three years since COVID go up. If you go up that’s that’s LA high rocks. Um, that one right there. That’s the finishing, hitting the gong.

Sevan Matossian (08:39):

So that’s right there. You set the 55 minute world record.

Hunter McIntyre (08:42):

No, that’s not the world record. This is the world championships in Vegas.

Sevan Matossian (08:45):

That’s what I mean, but, but, oh, and it was the week before or a couple weeks before in Dallas that you’d set the world record.

Hunter McIntyre (08:51):

Yeah, you can’t. Um, I, I think it’s almost impossible to set the world record in the world championship format. It’s called the grid. Um, it’d be like doing, like, imagine if you set up Fran in your gym, you put the barbell like three millimeters behind the, um, the pull-up bar. Mm-hmm <affirmative> there’s world championships right there. That one you got your cursor over. Um, you can see, so we run outside in the stadium and we have all these people lining up the, um, the outside of the circuit and you can get people handing you water and stuff. And that’s Teddy, Teddy Graham. He, uh, had to follow me with the camera the whole time. That’s Xander right there. That’s uh, Chris Wooley. That’s my friend from Australia handed me the water really good crew. So once you go inside, what you’re not being able to see is, is the rock zone.

Hunter McIntyre (09:45):

And typically the rock zone is kind of built like a puzzle there’s sections that lay on top of each other to have the perfect zone in, in world championships. They do, what’s called the grid where it’s kind of just like, um, the competition floor at the CrossFit games where it’s like these succession lanes where there’s like a barbell here. And then you have to move up 20 feet to the next barbell and do you know, 15 reps there and then move up 20 feet and then do nine reps there. You, you can’t set the record, but it helps people see who the leader is. So it’s kinda makes fitness racing, racing.

Sevan Matossian (10:19):

Um, I’m gonna address that in a second. Uh, uh, listen, listen, listen, someone needs to make a list of the Seon top five man crushes, where would rich and listen, Hunter’s not even on the same planet as rich. Rich is on his own planet. I would. So I would soap rich down. I would, I would have dinner every night with hunter, but rich, I would, I would, I would lather him to try to compare you to rich PHY my first love. My first love is crazy.

Hunter McIntyre (10:47):

You know, what was crazy? I went to first form. Have you heard of this company?

Sevan Matossian (10:52):

No, but I’ve heard of this one paper street coffee.

Hunter McIntyre (10:54):

There we go. Let’s do a little virtual. Cheers. How is paper street?

Sevan Matossian (10:58):

I wanna talk about, I wanna talk about it. It’s strong as shit. I wanna talk about the grid thing. Don’t okay. Tell me about first form. And then, and then I wanna ask, I wanna talk about Christian A. Little bit. Are you gonna compete at high rocks anymore? Cuz this, this conversation could go sideways.

Hunter McIntyre (11:12):

We should probably go to your direction before mine. Cuz if I start going into this, the first form thing, it will blow, blow our, both of our minds. Okay. I didn’t know a company like that existed.

Sevan Matossian (11:22):

Okay. Uh, Christian is the, I had him on the show. Uh, fantastic man, uh, German. Uh, he is the creator and founder of high rocks. Um, he’s also created a bunch of other sporting events and then he ended up selling them. Um, he, I, I, I got the impression he’s, he’s done some pretty amazing shit and he’s very successful. Um, and he, I think he was basically, he worked at basically Europe’s IMG. IMGs the big sports academy that everyone from, I think Kobe to the William sisters’ kids went to and I went,

Hunter McIntyre (11:52):

I think he was a part owner

Sevan Matossian (11:54):

Of, of the one in Europe.

Hunter McIntyre (11:55):

Yeah.

Sevan Matossian (11:56):

Okay. Now, when I asked him about the two things, when I asked him about the different, the courses, he said they were identical and kind of what I was getting at is, is I’m sure they’re identical, but, but those nuances that you were mentioning about how different when you’re an athlete and you’re trying to set the world record, there’s nuances that aren’t nuances anymore. Number of turns, uh, you know, uh, temperature inside, um, uh, where they hand you the water where they don’t, uh, this grid layout versus blah, blah, blah. And it was interesting that he didn’t mention those cuz he, he, he really wanted to cause those, those are the kind of details I was kind of interested in, in regards to world championships. Cause I was wondering like, I just like that kind of stuff. I like it. That they’re all the same, but, but I like it. Like, go ahead, go ahead.

Hunter McIntyre (12:39):

Well, you know this just as well as I do, if you created something and you believed in it really fully, you don’t want anybody to mention the kind of incongruencies that could kind of somewhat dismantle your, your baby,

Sevan Matossian (12:52):

But it makes it kind of attractive though too. Right? Find those things. I find those things attractive that there’s those subtle nuances that people are spotting.

Hunter McIntyre (13:01):

Well, it makes, makes it interesting. It makes it a good comic of conversation between the athletes. But the reality is, is like there’s marathons over all over the world. Everybody goes to set the world records at Berlin. Berlin is the best course. That is like really, really ratified as like a marathon course. And everyone goes to set the records there. There’s a reason why it doesn’t happen in Boston, Chicago, New York city. It’s also the same reason why there’s certain courses in high rocks. Like the FA most of the fastest times have happened in Texas at this Dallas location. And this is a new location. So I don’t really know why this location was best, but it’s odd that the fastest times in the United States have how all happened in Texas. Because for some reason, the way that the two venues that we’ve used have been really good. Um, uh, what am I trying to say? Europe, Europe, they definitely use different equipment from us. So they have very different, they have different times than us. And we’ve been saying it for

Sevan Matossian (14:03):

Years. When you say different equipment, what do you mean? The rope is a different texture. The, the, the sled is a different thickness where you grab it. The judges are wearing a shorter skirt. So it’s hard to stay concentrated focused. Like what

Hunter McIntyre (14:15):

Later hoing

Sevan Matossian (14:16):

Yeah, I love a later hoing.

Hunter McIntyre (14:18):

Um,

Sevan Matossian (14:18):

Tell me some

Hunter McIntyre (14:19):

With the sleds it’s mostly to do with the sleds and for some reason they’re rock zones, which is the transition period. So it’s inside that area that I told you about tends to be a lot shorter, but I don’t know how to, that makes any sense because they use one of those wheels that measures out the distance, but the sleds makes a humongous difference. They use a different sled actually, and everything is about surface space. So if you think about it, like if I drag a finger across a carpet versus three fingers across the carpet, there’s just three times more volume of creating friction. So if it’s the same weight creates more friction. Um,

Sevan Matossian (14:57):

Oh, I like that. Great explanation.

Hunter McIntyre (14:59):

Yeah. So, and then also for some reason, I know this sounds silly, but the poles, the poles inside of a sled push the lower it is down the lower, your sense of gravity is, and for some reason it just changes your trajectory and also the amount of output of power that you can have.

Sevan Matossian (15:18):

Yeah.

Hunter McIntyre (15:18):

Um, so it’s the same way. If you were standing running, you know, flat on a road and I put you on a hill that different pitch just creates a different kind of muscular tension. So that’s different too so much. So, and I’m not talking shit, but they, they brought the Europeans here and they changed the handles so that they felt more, um, uh, more in their comfort zone, which

Sevan Matossian (15:39):

Is never, oh, inclusivity, inclusivity. I, yeah.

Hunter McIntyre (15:42):

Now here’s the craziest part. They pull the whole fucking plate off the, the, um, the sled. We have never raced a race in history where they pulled a play off. It was world championships. The one we just competed in, they had to pull off a whole sled because they were, I think they were too worried about the discrepancies and times, cuz they didn’t want the backpack of the field to do so poorly against the front pack

Sevan Matossian (16:04):

Of the field. Okay. Now I got a problem.

Hunter McIntyre (16:07):

Yeah. Well I don’t wanna talk shit because

Sevan Matossian (16:10):

I don’t wanna talk shit either, but you can’t, you can’t um,

Hunter McIntyre (16:13):

Listen,

Sevan Matossian (16:14):

If the sled, if the sled is I even, I, I interviewed both you guys in, in, in, in, in Kristin. Uh rlasky

Hunter McIntyre (16:24):

Chris,

Sevan Matossian (16:25):

KLOS Chris, Chris rug rug. It’s Chris Ru yeah. Let’s call her Ru. Uh, and, and I thought the sleds, like there’s a standard weight for the women, a standard weight for the men. You’re saying that they changed the weight of the sled for the men this year at the LA, for some reason,

Hunter McIntyre (16:39):

Never happened in history. Never happened in history. I showed

Sevan Matossian (16:44):

Up. I don’t under, I don’t understand. I don’t understand. That’s like, I don’t understand how I don’t understand if, if, if it had been working for the last four years, why change it right before an event this year? I don’t know. You don’t know?

Hunter McIntyre (16:56):

So I showed up and I found out that this was going to happen and I was like 45 minutes out from the start of the world championship. And I just said,

Sevan Matossian (17:05):

Oh, and actually that, that helps other people. Not necessarily you, because you’re a bigger athlete. You don’t mind a little, you got a little more junk.

Hunter McIntyre (17:11):

Don’t mind a little pork on the stick. Yeah. You know what I mean? Hmm. Yeah. I just said, fuck it, man. I said, fuck

Sevan Matossian (17:17):

It. The girl who’s 1 65. You don’t, that’s fine.

Hunter McIntyre (17:22):

Yeah. There’s nothing. There’s nothing you can do by the way. Are we live

Sevan Matossian (17:27):

Always.

Hunter McIntyre (17:28):

Fuck. I always forget that. There’s this chat going on here and these

Sevan Matossian (17:31):

People. Oh, it’s good. It’s good to forget. It’s good to forget. You know, if I, I, I have someone like, um, I’ll have someone like Jason EPON you don’t even have to interview him. I just kick back. And he just reads comments and, and answers ’em he can’t even like stay out of him. It’s like crack.

Hunter McIntyre (17:45):

Yeah,

Sevan Matossian (17:46):

Exactly. It’s like, it’s like, yeah. It’s like me walking around at the beach. Just like the whole time. All I’m trying to do is not stare at anyone.

Hunter McIntyre (17:53):

Just looking down, you gotta get those shades. I have shades that flip down the regular glasses and then flip down then there’s shades on top. That’s what you need.

Sevan Matossian (18:02):

Here we go. Here we go. Fuck.

Hunter McIntyre (18:05):

Let ’em talk. I don’t think that we have this kind of, um, I don’t think we have an imbalance amongst our conversation, but long story short, uh, long story short, who gives a shit that they took off weight. I mean, in reality, if you’re prepared, you should compete at the highest level. And I, they could’ve taken the sleds out completely and I would’ve won. At least in my mind.

Sevan Matossian (18:34):

I’m such a baby,

Hunter McIntyre (18:36):

Are you hurt?

Sevan Matossian (18:37):

No, I’m not hurt. But like when they say that, I just wanna just stop talking all together. How? Yeah. Look at that body. That body like at a plate next time. Yeah, dude. Here’s the thing. Here’s the thing, hunter. If they would’ve added a plate, people would’ve fucking lost their mind.

Hunter McIntyre (18:53):

Yeah. What you gonna do? I don’t know why in our sport. They, they, they changed things constantly and almost never seems to. And I’m not saying specific to high rocks, just I’m saying in the sport of like obstacle course racing, fitness racing and stuff like that. The people who seem to be running it tend to just do shit on the fly where it seems like you guys come from a military background. Dave Castro. Very strict.

Sevan Matossian (19:21):

Oh we, we, no, we changed shit too.

Hunter McIntyre (19:23):

Really?

Sevan Matossian (19:24):

Yeah, yeah, yeah. Yeah. We changed shit too.

Hunter McIntyre (19:26):

Maybe I didn’t notice it, but it’s happened a lot in ours.

Sevan Matossian (19:30):

Oh, this company can’t sponsor me. Well, maybe they can. I don’t know. I, I have to assume they’re woke. Speaking of woke, are you following what the hell’s going on with noble?

Hunter McIntyre (19:40):

No. What happened?

Sevan Matossian (19:41):

They’re fucked.

Hunter McIntyre (19:42):

What’d they do. They’re

Sevan Matossian (19:43):

Fucked. They’re fucked. They’re they’re they’re coming out. They’re fucking women haters.

Hunter McIntyre (19:48):

What

Sevan Matossian (19:50):

They they’re. I mean, they’re, they’re BA I from, from what I see from what I, uh, from what I see, it looks like they’re gonna start pushing, uh, women to be competing in. Um, looks like they’re gonna start pushing women to be or men to be competing in women’s sports. It looks like they’re gonna get behind that movement. I don’t think that’s gonna fly in the CrossFit community

Hunter McIntyre (20:08):

And the trans, like you’re talking about trans action here.

Sevan Matossian (20:11):

I don’t know what it is. I don’t know what the words are, but I just know that like you can’t like that there’s women sports and men’s sports for a reason. And

Hunter McIntyre (20:18):

I don’t know what you’re describing,

Sevan Matossian (20:20):

But I’m I’ll, I’ll pull it up in a second. Let’s talk about first form. And then we’ll go over and talk about noble it’s so it’s so it’s. So I’ve talked about this before. If you ha, if someone had, if someone’s anorexic, you don’t, you don’t, um, you don’t help them out and, and send them to a doctor and get the lipo suction. It’s a fucking, it’s a, it’s a mental illness that needs help.

Hunter McIntyre (20:44):

What does that have to do with this?

Sevan Matossian (20:45):

It doesn’t. Well, this is why first forum would never sponsor me. Cuz I, cuz I talk about stuff like this that no one everyone’s afraid to talk about, but what so tell what, what is first forum? They sell bars. I like a bar. I don’t just

Hunter McIntyre (20:57):

Everything. I mean, they’re starting to get into the CrossFit space and they sponsored the go rock games and I just, they invited me out to come see their campus. And when I say campus, it’s literally a campus. This is like the biggest building. I, it, it was bigger than Reebok headquarters.

Sevan Matossian (21:12):

Where is it

Hunter McIntyre (21:13):

In Boston? Oh, uh, St. Louis.

Sevan Matossian (21:17):

Were they nice?

Hunter McIntyre (21:18):

The coolest people in the entire world

Sevan Matossian (21:21):

Are these, the people who have that jalapeno drink, you told me about

Hunter McIntyre (21:26):

No, no, no,

Sevan Matossian (21:27):

No. They don’t have a spicy, they

Hunter McIntyre (21:28):

Don’t beef stick that I ate like a hundred of on my hike. It was freaking incredible.

Sevan Matossian (21:34):

What is this stuff? Is this just protein powder?

Hunter McIntyre (21:37):

Uh, they got everything, man. I just was, I, I didn’t even know companies of this size existed in our industry. It’s probably like the equivalent of rogue. It was massive. It was incredible. The structure, the offices were like some of the nicest offices I’ve ever been to. And I’ve, you know, if I live in a finance family where we go around to these big fancy offices in New York city, it just was crazy. Man,

Sevan Matossian (22:00):

Look, they sell diuretics. This is stuff that makes you poop.

Hunter McIntyre (22:03):

I like that. Um, there’s a bunch of CrossFiters that are involved in this thing. I just think if you’re always trying to bring on interesting people and interview them, you should somehow get on, uh, Jesus. Why am I gonna screw this up? Andy forc, the CEO of this company, mind blowing. You gotta get it. Then you would love to talk about the stuff that you’re into. Dude. Hardcore dude.

Sevan Matossian (22:27):

Do you know hunter? How do you spell the last name?

Hunter McIntyre (22:32):

Hunter McIntyre (24:45):

Sevan Matossian (25:26):

You ever shoot up with Sam? You ever do you ever take the needle on the, but with Sammy

Hunter McIntyre (25:29):

Sevan Matossian (25:39):

Savanna. I just sent you their adaptive athlete info. I’ve asked this Derek, uh, WIDA to come on the podcast a couple times. Mr. Lawrence

Hunter McIntyre (25:45):

Sevan Matossian (25:47):

He is

Hunter McIntyre (25:48):

That dude’s a beast.

Sevan Matossian (25:50):

That’s what my body should look like.

Hunter McIntyre (25:52):

You wanna miss a leg, but you

Sevan Matossian (25:53):

Wanna miss? No, no, no. My minus the, the missing, like,

Hunter McIntyre (25:58):

Do you have like a, a fitness routine or do you just, are you just a guy who just gets after it?

Sevan Matossian (26:05):

Yes.

Hunter McIntyre (26:09):

In what way?

Sevan Matossian (26:11):

Both. If I’m gonna tell it to you, then people are just gonna make fun of me in the comments. I mean, they already know these people already know my routine. So last, so today I have today, I have Jack Day made coming on this evening. He’s a UFC fighter. He is fighting in UFC 2 75. So I get home at eight o’clock at night and I just start researching the shit out of him. Right.

Hunter McIntyre (26:29):

What’s the name?

Sevan Matossian (26:31):

Uh, Jack Dayla D E L L a and then third word, Magdalena, Magdalene

Hunter McIntyre (26:42):

Guy.

Sevan Matossian (26:43):

Anyway,

Hunter McIntyre (26:44):

I can whoop the shit outta this dude.

Sevan Matossian (26:47):

Um, Hey man, he is so tough and so

Hunter McIntyre (26:50):

Pretty fucking buff.

Sevan Matossian (26:52):

He’s just his, he, he, the dude’s got great head movement and he can punch so hard. Uh, anyway, he, um, I just sit on the assault. I, so I sat on the assault bike. I, I did 10, uh, a hundred calories on the assault bike in 10 minutes.

Hunter McIntyre (27:07):

Good,

Sevan Matossian (27:08):

Good. Then I do 10 calories on the assault bike, 10 sit ups, 10 leg lifts, and then another 10 calories in the assault bike, 10 sit ups, 10 leg lifts. And I do that for 10 rounds. Then I rode the assault bike for another 10 minutes. Then I did some like, uh, clean, uh, curl and press with some assault bike. And I’m doing that the whole time while I’m watching, uh, studying him on YouTube, in different interviews and stopping to take notes on my phone. That’s a really typical workout for me, that kind of, you know what I mean? And I do a lot of neg. I do a lot of negative, uh, work. I do a lot of negative muscle ups, a lot from bar muscle up with a weighted vest. It’s kind of a new thing. Yeah.

Hunter McIntyre (27:47):

I think once I kind of cap out on this whole, the competitive exercise thing, I think I’m just gonna chop wood, dig holes and pick up rocks. That’s it. And some fucking body building and I like biking

Sevan Matossian (27:59):

Body. Building’s fun

Hunter McIntyre (28:00):

Body. Building’s the best thing for you. Like, I don’t understand why more people don’t do it. If you, you could do CrossFit, like once a week, I’m talking about traditional CrossFit and then body build for like two or three days a week. You’d be amazing.

Sevan Matossian (28:13):

Or just do body building fast.

Hunter McIntyre (28:16):

True, true. I think they call that high intensity body building.

Sevan Matossian (28:21):

Yeah, just, I, I mean, I did that even before I found CrossFit. You do, um, you, you know, you do bench press and then you do, um, some, you know what, whatever, some lap shitload of lap pull downs and then some, and then, and then some something else, some skull crushers, and you just do ’em in a, in a circle fast.

Hunter McIntyre (28:37):

Yep. I try to convince people of that, but they just don’t listen. I have to, the reason, like the

Sevan Matossian (28:43):

Whole thing, when I do that, I get the most compliments on my body, by the way, I could be doing CrossFit every single day. And I do that like that for a couple weeks and people like, oh, you look really great. I’m like, mm-hmm

Hunter McIntyre (28:51):

Gone. Start to pop up a little bit. Your shoulders. Yep. Well, if you want to, you should just join our challenge. We got a lot of cash on the line. Try perform that body.

Sevan Matossian (29:01):

You give away money for your, for more than street parking. I heard street parking’s giving away a million dollars to the best street parking or

Hunter McIntyre (29:07):

Really

Sevan Matossian (29:08):

No, I made that out. Wouldn’t that be awesome?

Hunter McIntyre (29:11):

T I fucked up. So I started like top of the food chain giving away as much stuff. Like last year I gave away a car.

Sevan Matossian (29:18):

Wow.

Hunter McIntyre (29:20):

Such a huge mistake. Um, I ran two charity events back to back for our sport and I gave away first year, $50,000 in cash and tens upon tens of thousands of dollars in prizes beyond that. And then the next year I was like, we did, well, I wanna give back more. I was like, I’m gonna give away just as much cash and a car. We did not make our money back. Um, so now, like I just do fitness challenges. I’m like $1,000 to each winner. That’s it? That’s, that’s the extent of my charity at this point.

Sevan Matossian (29:53):

How did you, how did you, I know don’t, I, I’m not a fan of charities. Um, how, how, um,
