Sevan Matossian (00:00):

I guess, I guess, man, I guess he always had those eyebrows

Andrew Hiller (00:04):

<laugh> I was

Sevan Matossian (00:05):

Just reading.

Andrew Hiller (00:06):

That was good.

Sevan Matossian (00:07):

Did you, uh, did you see the picture that, uh, I used as the thumbnail?

Andrew Hiller (00:11):

That was your doing?

Sevan Matossian (00:13):

Yeah, that was, I just typed into Google

Andrew Hiller (00:16):


Sevan Matossian (00:16):

I just typed into Google. Andrew Hiller. I needed a picture. It was last minute, late last night. I’m like, shit normally will makes that makes good ones. Can’t hear me. Can’t hear me.

Andrew Hiller (00:29):

Oh, I fixed it. Okay. Sorry. I had the YouTube thing open. I was, I was seeing what was going on. I fixed it. We’re good.

Sevan Matossian (00:34):

Bam. We’re live better. All I have to do is say that. Perfect. And that makes everything better.

Andrew Hiller (00:41):

It’s just like the equalizer. It me, it levels everything out. I was really the comments that everyone was like, they’re going so early. It’s like, do they not understand what your shirt says?

Sevan Matossian (00:52):

No plan B five 30, 8% on it is. It is, is, uh, and I was up late.

Andrew Hiller (00:59):

When did you go to bed?

Sevan Matossian (01:01):

Fooling around with dals? Uh, probably 1130.

Andrew Hiller (01:07):

What do you mean you were fooling around with dals?

Sevan Matossian (01:10):

I just, um, I start, I normally, I just pick ’em up and slam ’em, but I was trying to do ’em like I was pretending I, I saw a video, someone posted, maybe it was, oh, someone sent me an old video of Justin. Maderas doing, uh, the Dal the, the way you’re supposed to do it, not the Dal, but the stones, the way you’re supposed to do it. You know, if you have like a 300 pound stone, you lap it and then you kind of extend backwards, stand up and open your hip and let the ball roll up your chest within close movement. So I did that with balls yesterday, 60 to a hundred pounds. It was, it was easy, like nothing heavy, but I got to play with the technique and I told myself, I shouldn’t share this, but I told myself that I’m gonna keep a tally of doing, I’m gonna do a thousand like that with a hundred pound D ball, like over the next, like two weeks maybe. And then, uh, okay. If I get to a thousand, then I’ll reward myself with 150 pound D ball stupid. So stupid.

Andrew Hiller (02:03):

Like the actual Dal or you’re gonna get a sandbag

Sevan Matossian (02:06):

And no, no, the

Andrew Hiller (02:08):

Dal D ball. So the rubber guy.

Sevan Matossian (02:11):


Andrew Hiller (02:12):

What, what makes you not want to get a sandbag with the ones they were just using this past weekend? You wanna spend the extra $300 per pound? Whatever it ends up being. Yeah.

Sevan Matossian (02:20):


Andrew Hiller (02:22):

Cuz you’re balling.

Sevan Matossian (02:23):

Yeah. And, and sand balls are, um, I can use, they’re easy to move around. Easier, a little easier to move around. And then I’m looking on the rogue site to see if they have EMAP med ball rogue. Does rogue make a, a, a, a heavy D ball? No,

Andrew Hiller (02:38):

They’ve just got the dals

Sevan Matossian (02:40):

Down there.

Andrew Hiller (02:41):

It’s like 400 bucks for the one you’re talking about. And then 530 for shipping. Oh, it’s it’s that much extra. I got mine a couple years back.

Sevan Matossian (02:49):

4 61. I wonder if I go to dal.com every time you hear DBO,

Andrew Hiller (02:55):

Careful, you might something else might pop up. Just don’t put it on the screen.

Sevan Matossian (02:59):

And when you hear D ball

Andrew Hiller (03:00):


Sevan Matossian (03:01):

You, you, uh, you salivate, huh?

Andrew Hiller (03:04):

Sounds like Diana Ball, huh?

Sevan Matossian (03:06):


Andrew Hiller (03:07):


Sevan Matossian (03:08):

De ball slam ball. What’s the name of this company? Believe this company never, uh, sponsored me. I’ll tell you a story. The in 2008, prior to the, uh, I’m trying to look for the name of that company. Where, where the fuck are they? What’s the name of that company? I used to tag them all the time and then they did something that pissed me off. So I stopped.

Andrew Hiller (03:30):

I’m trying to, you want me to go check? I can go read the ball right over there.

Sevan Matossian (03:34):

I don’t think it’ll say it on it.

Andrew Hiller (03:36):

You know, what’s amazing is I’ve got over. Can you see like, yeah, they’re right over here. These are my D balls. I have ’em up on his wall with the wall balls and I all these things.

Sevan Matossian (03:45):


Andrew Hiller (03:45):

That’s crazy. And I, I couldn’t believe that it didn’t rip the wall down.

Sevan Matossian (03:49):

<laugh> what, what is the name of that company? Shit.

Andrew Hiller (03:52):

Give me a second.

Sevan Matossian (03:53):

Who knows it? Uh, it’s got some weird name. D ball slam ball broke. Fitness rep fitness, dal.com

Andrew Hiller (04:09):


Sevan Matossian (04:10):


Andrew Hiller (04:11):

It says, it says dbol.com on it.

Sevan Matossian (04:14):


Andrew Hiller (04:15):

Dal.com. <laugh>

Sevan Matossian (04:16):

It’s D hyphen ball and it’s Dal by Mondo. Okay. So the, the, the guy, I don’t know if this guy still owns this company. I think he sold, I think he sold it or gave the management to someone else. But, uh, I, in, in 2008, I called him and I, and I was like, Hey, you know, the cross of games are going on and, uh, you should, um, you should come there and set up a booth. And he, and he didn’t want, and he didn’t want, and I’m like, dude. And he’s like, whenever I set up a booth, I never sell anything. I’m like, dude, you wanna come there and set up a booth? And he is like, no, no, no. I’m like, Hey, come there and bring fucking a hundred of the a hundred pound balls and a hundred of the 60 pound balls.

Sevan Matossian (04:52):

He goes, dude, no one ever buys those big ones. I’m like, okay. So he comes, he ends up getting a booth. He comes and he only brings like 20 or 30 balls with them. And within opening his booth within 15 minutes, he sold them all. And he’s like, holy shit, dude. I can’t believe I sold all these. I go, dude, you could sell a rock to a CrossFitter. Anything that you te say that you can pick up and set down and it’ll make you stronger. They’ll buy it. They don’t care. Just bring a bag of rocks. He couldn’t believe it.

Andrew Hiller (05:22):

I was trying to think about what might have been the most ridiculous thing that I saw getting sold this past weekend. But I’m not, I’m not Scorchers earth right now. I’m not trying to bury anything.

Sevan Matossian (05:33):

<laugh> yeah, you’re a good dude. So these are not right

Andrew Hiller (05:36):

Now. Not, not this early,

Sevan Matossian (05:38):

Uh, Debo by Mondo. And then they have, I have all of these balls. I have the half pound, the one pound, the 1.5 pound. I have all these too. My kids do all

Andrew Hiller (05:46):

These. Wait, wait, wait, what do you do with a half pound D ball? And how big is it?

Sevan Matossian (05:50):

It’s this, this particular one’s tiny, but you just start, like you throw ’em at the, you play catch with them, with the kids and then you just keep going up. And then I have ’em do like, hold like the four, a ton of shit. Ton of shit.

Andrew Hiller (06:02):

Can you scroll up? How much was that? Half pound D ball

Sevan Matossian (06:05):

Cheap, cheap. But the problem with that one, it only, it only comes

Andrew Hiller (06:11):

$23 for that. You’re kidding.

Sevan Matossian (06:13):

But it only comes in the 3.7 interest kind of sucks, but yeah,

Andrew Hiller (06:16):

It’s a half a pound. How big can they make it? I having that rubber road <laugh>

Sevan Matossian (06:21):

Let me see how much their 150 pound ball is. If it’s cheaper than rogue. Oh, no same price. It, it due to the penny four going 94. See

Andrew Hiller (06:34):

To yeah, yeah. 300. That’s all it’s about. Oh my God. That’s more than a rower. And it’s just gonna sit in the corner for the rest of its life.

Sevan Matossian (06:43):

Dude, that comes in a 15 inch option. I cannot fucking, I don’t believe that.

Andrew Hiller (06:50):

Looking for my tape measure. It’s usually around here. Yeah. What’s that one

Sevan Matossian (06:52):

I have. I feel like I haven’t, uh, a couple 18 inch balls.

Andrew Hiller (06:59):

Well, see, you know, this is cool because I didn’t know. They came in any other color than black and they come in yellow and pink.

Sevan Matossian (07:05):

I have one pink. I have one pink ball. I regret it.

Andrew Hiller (07:09):

<laugh> why is it dirty?

Sevan Matossian (07:10):

No, it’s fine. I’m just joking. It’s uh, it’s six pounds. I have the six pound pink ball. Actually. It’s probably pretty good that way. I don’t confuse it with the nine pound ball.

Andrew Hiller (07:21):

I can’t believe you have as many of these as you say you have.

Sevan Matossian (07:25):

So man,

Andrew Hiller (07:25):

I saw a down here from Tom and he goes, I saw Hiller a couple times over the weekend and that he hopes that I enjoyed my steak at rare. And that is the most pissed off. I’ve been in a long time because that place we’re walking around. I’m like, oh, it’s right next to the hotel. And I wanted to get a good steak and they overcooked the fuck out of it. And it was expensive as shit. And I was in a bad mood because of all that. And when was walking by, I’m like, where the hell is my food? The only shin of light was at the server was he was freaking out because he was, I polished this fork myself. The kitchen’s really fucking me over.

Sevan Matossian (08:00):

So I didn’t understand. So your stake wasn’t cooked, right?

Andrew Hiller (08:03):

Uh, well it took a long, so we got there what, eight 30 and then the steak didn’t come out until like 10. And it was like this little motherfucker. They called it the CrossFit cut and, and I were gonna split it and it’s like, alright, this will be nice. And then it, it really wasn’t. And then, you know, the longer it comes more pissed you get, and then when they finally brought it out, it’s like they were cooking it that entire time. At that point, I, we were just ready to get outta there. So we Chuck chucked it down and went back.

Sevan Matossian (08:28):

You needed, you needed, uh, two of those per person not to split one,

Andrew Hiller (08:33):

Correct? Yeah. Alexis can eat more than I do. She eats, usually does. And she usually makes fun of me for it.

Sevan Matossian (08:40):

What did that comment? What did that comment mean? I need four times the coffee. Was it tainted?

Andrew Hiller (08:47):

Tainted meat. Come on. You new here?

Sevan Matossian (08:50):

Yeah. Yeah. I just got it. <laugh> maybe I do need four times the coffee

Andrew Hiller (08:54):

You were up late. I’m I’m sensing it on you.

Sevan Matossian (08:57):

Hey, that gile stick you got is dope.

Andrew Hiller (09:00):

It’s cool. Isn’t it? Did you watch that video?

Sevan Matossian (09:02):

I did watch that video.

Andrew Hiller (09:04):

Hell yeah. Like I wanna actually, I thought it was super cool how I overlayed it and I kind of had him lined up with one another. That was neat. It was like inception.

Sevan Matossian (09:13):

I also watched the video with the girl. So, so last night, the last video I watched was the video, uh, with the, uh, girl, you, the girl and the guy did the, uh, assault bike for 30 seconds on four minute rest.

Andrew Hiller (09:26):

Yes. Yes. So

Sevan Matossian (09:27):

I that’s, that’s fucking hard.

Andrew Hiller (09:29):

Did you do it?

Sevan Matossian (09:30):

Not really. But what I did is <laugh> at the, I just worked out really like

Andrew Hiller (09:35):

Yesterday do it.

Sevan Matossian (09:36):

I worked out really light yesterday. I just, I just, it was late last night. I was just fool around with the D balls fooling around with the mace. I rode the assault bike for 20 minutes, but just super light. And then afterwards I, I was watching that video while I was stretching. I’m like, okay, I’ll get on the assault bike and go as hard as I can for 30 seconds. First of all, I couldn’t convince myself to go as hard as I could. I went probably like 90 to 95% and I got 16.6 calories in 30 seconds, which was less than the girl. The girl got 17.2 and then my back was like spasming, not bad, but my lower back was like spasming. Not, not warm,

Andrew Hiller (10:11):

Warm up a little bit,

Sevan Matossian (10:12):

But just scared, dude. I was drenched

Andrew Hiller (10:15):

From 30 seconds

Sevan Matossian (10:17):

Or no, but I been, I had been, I had been working out. I had been working out.

Andrew Hiller (10:22):


Sevan Matossian (10:22):

I’d already working out for like

Andrew Hiller (10:24):

Planning the second one. Why did you do the second one?

Sevan Matossian (10:26):

I was hurt because I was because my back was spas me a little bit and I didn’t wanna injure myself and I was fucking like that wounded me. I stood up. You guys didn’t stand by the way I stood up.

Andrew Hiller (10:37):

Uh, well, why would you do that? Is that just kinda your thing? I mean, you’re the master.

Sevan Matossian (10:42):

I don’t know. Why don’t you stand up?

Andrew Hiller (10:45):

Uh, I feel like it really, I, I like to pull on the handles as much as I like to push. And if I’m standing, I don’t feel as if I have the same leverage to do that.

Sevan Matossian (10:53):

Right. Right.

Andrew Hiller (10:54):

You know, cause really all you is,

Sevan Matossian (10:56):


Andrew Hiller (10:56):

Push down and away at him. So I’m not the assault bike master though. But yeah, I did. When I

Sevan Matossian (11:02):

Was doing that. Well, you crushed it. You got more calories in 30 seconds than I can get in a minute.

Andrew Hiller (11:07):

I, I, I would really like to see, and I was trying to bait you into that because not one thing, uh, very few things get me into as much pain as that workout.

Sevan Matossian (11:17):

<laugh> I’m gonna try. I’m eventually gonna try it here ver before I go to, uh, we, before we see each other in Newport, Hey, where do I go to find that gimble photography

Andrew Hiller (11:27):

On the, I got it from the store. Um, I just walked in. So I, when I picked these, the guys up the headphones I’m aware and I saw it there and it was kind of in the back of my mind. And I just went in there and got it for this event after I got who

Sevan Matossian (11:41):

Makes its what’s

Andrew Hiller (11:42):

The title D

Sevan Matossian (11:44):

No, that’s not J I,

Andrew Hiller (11:49):

Uh, I thought it was right here.

Andrew Hiller (11:51):


Sevan Matossian (11:51):

Sec. I see the GI. I see the gile, but I don’t see the stick.

Andrew Hiller (11:56):

That’s it

Sevan Matossian (11:58):

Right there on the screen,

Andrew Hiller (12:01):

Correct? Yeah. One second. It’s in here. I haven’t gone very far. I kind of pulled the car in and started making my video for today. I got my suitcase right here on the floor and I got

Sevan Matossian (12:14):

Everything. I see it. Wow. Wow. It is that you’re right. Click over a few pictures, Caleb. Hey, is, is that what, uh, is that what SU bought too?

Andrew Hiller (12:29):

Uh, no Suza had a little tripod stand, so I let

Sevan Matossian (12:32):

Him that’s why didn’t he buy that? That’s so much better. Yeah, that’s dope.

Andrew Hiller (12:36):

So it like opens up and then it turns into like a selfie stick. It’s like a telescopic deal. Here we go. And then you just put the stick on there and it’s actually, did

Sevan Matossian (12:52):

You get, does it get longer?

Andrew Hiller (12:55):

No, that’s it

Sevan Matossian (12:56):

All right. That’s fine. I’m good with it. I’m good with it. I’m getting one too.

Andrew Hiller (13:00):

It, it was kind of bent up afterwards and I go hip and steel actually broke this freaking thing, but it was just kind of tilted. So like I had it in there and I go, it doesn’t quite get back in, but it tilts. Oh, somebody in the, someone in the comments goes, that’s made for people under 65. It’s also got one of these deals. So it turns into a tripod on the bottom. This thing is awesome. It’s like the coolest thing. So that one of those tripod bases you screwed in down there.

Sevan Matossian (13:26):

Yeah, I would. Why not? Just always leave that in. Oh, so you can put your bag.

Andrew Hiller (13:32):

Yeah. When you walk around to it, it turns into like this spear and it, and it vibrates. Come on, come on. It

Sevan Matossian (13:42):

Fi it vibrates.

Andrew Hiller (13:44):

Does it smell like hip and steel? <laugh> that’s good. I think one of my doctors use it on my prostate. These are good.

Sevan Matossian (13:50):

I want you to, uh, put on your biggest empathy hat you can.

Andrew Hiller (13:56):

Oh boy.

Sevan Matossian (13:57):

And why did I, why was he using, what did he mean? What did I, I I’m, I’m stuck on the fact that he thought that using eight, like, what did he keep saying? You don’t know what it’s like to walk in my shoes and you don’t know what it’s like to be 65.

Andrew Hiller (14:13):

He didn’t say it more than twice, but he goes, you don’t know what it’s like to be me. And I, I, I have these like thoughts that when I’m laying in my deathbed, I’ll have these giant regrets and a couple of ’em are gonna be like this weekend. I wish I had a better mic to have gotten these interactions when they ended up happening. And in this one in particular, I wish I had a recording the whole time. I wish I hadn’t have given him that little bit of space. Cause what I was doing is I had the ear about in yeah, you guys were having your conversations. I wanted to like, let you keep rolling. I didn’t wanna say, okay, here we go. And conveniently enough, he was right there and I’d go, all right, this could might maybe not go the best. So I had you in my ear.

Sevan Matossian (14:52):

It was very courteous of you. Not, yeah, it was very courteous of you not to, um,

Andrew Hiller (14:57):

Blast him.

Sevan Matossian (14:59):

Not well not to come, come on with, with the sound.

Andrew Hiller (15:03):

You know what I mean? So you walk in there and he’s walking around he’s with whom could be family or friends or whatever. And I assumed he wouldn’t really want to talk to me, but I did wanna talk to him for the obvious reasons and saw him by himself. And you guys are doing your bit and go, all right, let’s uh, talk a little bit. And then he, uh, tried to fuck my camera up.

Sevan Matossian (15:25):

Yeah. The whole thing. I, I understand him being pissed. Right? I understand all that. Like I’m not saying it’s right at all. I, I think he should have just laughed at himself, but, um, but to justify being in, going into a competition with bad reps and say, you don’t know what it’s like to be me. Um, look at, uh, can you pull up that video? I just sent you Caleb. This is a, this is a guy who’s blind. Who’s doing the long jump. Look at this. He’s already off the track. What, what? Whoa, whoa. Now if that guy, if that guy said, Hey, you don’t know what it’s like to be me. I’d be like, dude, you’re right. What the fuck is wrong with you? He goes, dude, it’s hard when you’re blind,

Andrew Hiller (16:15):

I guess perspective is everything. Huh?

Sevan Matossian (16:19):

I mean, that guy didn’t do that on purpose. Right?

Andrew Hiller (16:22):

No wait, you’re talking

Sevan Matossian (16:23):

About the guy in the video. Right. Just but yeah. But everything that hip and steel did, he did on purpose. And so I just, don’t given

Andrew Hiller (16:33):

To my knowledge, everything else that we’ve all been given. And in this instance, you you’re brought up. He wasn’t given sight

Sevan Matossian (16:41):

That dude. Yeah. Like I understand why that just swerved off the track. I just, no matter what, how, no matter what, like that guy chose to do those reps that way, it wasn’t like it. If let’s say you’re yelling at a guy to use both hands on a muscle up, but he only has one hand then you’re kind of a jackass. You’re kind of like, Hey, he only has one hand. You’re asking him to do the impossible.

Andrew Hiller (17:04):


Sevan Matossian (17:04):

Think I just don’t. I just don’t understand that. AR I just, I wanna understand his argument. I wanna understand what he thinks is so different about him that makes it so that he can do bad reps. I just don’t get,

Andrew Hiller (17:14):

I’ll tell you what I, I got something. Yeah. I’m walking around. And a couple of times I heard that either one, they couldn’t like, they, they didn’t know how I was doing what I was doing, which was just walking up to people and talking. It’s like, well, that’s all you do. You walk up to ’em and you talk. And then two, when I was talking to hip and steal,

Sevan Matossian (17:31):

Well, that shits scary. That shits scary.

Andrew Hiller (17:34):

Uh, it gets easier. Yeah. It got easier and easier and easier. But then when I was talking to the other guy who was like saying, fuck off, fuck off, fuck off. I, all I tried to do is say, all right, what would I want to be witnessing in this instance? I’m like, alright, I’m gonna go talk to this guy and see what he gotta say about it. Yeah. Uh, with all that said, I understand that there’s an entire world of things that he has heard and like told himself. And I assume the same with hip and steel. Like he’s probably living with this little bit of a bubble where they’re saying biller’s a piece of shit. And he, I don’t think he’s going out of his way to figure out what would be wrong. And that’s just the type of person you are either. You have like this echo chamber of thoughts in your head. Right. And when you witness him in the beer garden, there’s a couple of other what look like master’s athletes and I’m watching ’em and I go, I bet those people all fucking hate me too. And they’re all probably saying that I’m the problem.

Sevan Matossian (18:25):

Right? So that was your story. I

Andrew Hiller (18:26):

World. Yeah. In my world, everyone’s saying that he’s the problem. Right? Right. So when he comes and approaches me, I wanna like combat the world and try not to be the worst of the two worlds. And

Sevan Matossian (18:41):

By the way, I thought he looked good. I thought he looked good. By the way, Taylor commented. He looks his age. I thought, I thought it was interesting. He probably was five pounds heavier than probably his competition weight or something. I thought he looked the healthiest. I’d ever seen him. He looked good.

Andrew Hiller (18:57):

Hmm. Um, you don’t

Sevan Matossian (18:59):

Think he looked good?

Andrew Hiller (19:00):

I th I, I, what

Sevan Matossian (19:01):

Part? Some of those masters athletes, when they get there, by the end, they look fucking horrible.

Andrew Hiller (19:06):

So my fiance is into skincare and I, I thought myself more and more looking at wrinkles and age and that more. And I mean, of course, like you and I look at the, the muscle tone and the vascularity. Yeah. From that perspective, he looks damn good. But when you’re standing right there, maybe Taylor was seeing up here, which is what Alexis would look like. And he goes, okay. He looks like he’s 75, but from the net down, he looks like he’s 50.

Sevan Matossian (19:32):

Yeah. I just, I thought he looked good. I thought his face looked good too. What did Alexis say anything about his face?

Andrew Hiller (19:38):

No. Um, she was working in a booth all weekend, like a fucking slave. Oh good. They, they, they beat the crud out of her. And this is, this is where I get a lot of my, uh, my backend stuff where it’s I hear things from various people, her being one of ’em not exclusively, of course, but people feed me some information. It’s like, oh, <inaudible> and don’t get me wrong. It’s it’s a lot of ’em. And that’s why I wanted to make that little thing on noble where like they were paying their people 15 bucks an hour. And

Sevan Matossian (20:08):

I didn’t see that

Andrew Hiller (20:09):

It was every, and like she enjoyed it. Don’t get me wrong. Alexis had a great time working this weekend. And so did the other people that I was speaking to, they all wanted to be there and they weren’t complaining. But, uh, tell

Sevan Matossian (20:19):

Me about noble, the noble video, where the people get paid 15 bucks an hour. Where was that? Where was that video?

Andrew Hiller (20:24):

That was an Instagram post. So that wasn’t oh yeah. So on an Instagram post, I had somebody reach out the day and, uh, two or three days before, and they were getting outfitted every day. And then I spoke to actually the same individual. So he came out up to me and he goes, Hey, I’m the guy who sent you all that stuff on the internet. Like the background of all the jerseys and all the boxes full of the Brook well stuff. And he let me know that they were giving him like salmon meals to bring home and put in the fridge and stuff like that.

Sevan Matossian (20:55):


Andrew Hiller (20:56):

Was one was, uh, correct. And it was air conditioned in there. They’re getting paid 15 bucks an hour. They got entrance into the event and all that. Noble, just noble, not the CrossFit games. Volunteers.

Sevan Matossian (21:10):

Pete Pete’s coffee by my house has a sign saying hiring now, starting at $20 an hour. That’s not Madison though. I live like I live in fucking Santa Cruz, California.

Andrew Hiller (21:22):

Correct. So twenties kind of barrier for entry.

Sevan Matossian (21:25):

I guess when I started working at the minimum wage is like 4 25,

Andrew Hiller (21:32):

Uh, 7 25 for me,

Sevan Matossian (21:35):

20 bucks an hour. Sounds awesome.

Andrew Hiller (21:38):

<laugh> is, is a starter. Oh fuck

Sevan Matossian (21:40):

You. Yeah. Like as a kid, I’m 16. I fucking pour coffee and get to look at hot chicks all day at a Pete’s coffee. I’m fucking down free coffee.

Andrew Hiller (21:50):

There’s a Starbucks in the hotel that we stayed at, that we went to and tried to grab like an egg bite every morning. They were always out. I’m like, how are you guys? Always out every morning? Like the egg. And then, you know what? I figured that it’s kind of overrun because of the CrossFit game. So I ask them, I go, how many egg bites do you have when you start the morning? They’re like, oh, we got like 15, but you have only 15 <laugh>. So Alexis was trying to show you they’re they’re busy. They’re busy. And I gotta ask, I know they’re Hey,

Sevan Matossian (22:20):

Can you pronounce what those are called? It’s like with a G like a Gure or something. Do you know how to pronounce it? The egg, their egg lights.

Andrew Hiller (22:27):

Not a chance of hell. No,

Sevan Matossian (22:29):

That’s not. You know what I’m talking about though, right?

Andrew Hiller (22:31):

Correct. Yeah. It’s the type of, is that not the type of cheese?

Sevan Matossian (22:36):

I don’t know, but whenever I say it, I take a shot of the bacon Gure GU I always say it like three different ways. Let’s say, okay, CA’s gonna pull it up. Yeah. That one

Andrew Hiller (22:46):


Sevan Matossian (22:48):

Those. That can be good for you, but man, it tastes good. There’s probably all sorts of seed oils and shit in there.

Andrew Hiller (22:55):

Do you weigh yourself every day or at all?

Sevan Matossian (22:58):

No, I have a scale, but I don’t weigh myself takes too long.

Andrew Hiller (23:01):

I thought I was gonna lose like five pounds this weekend because I don’t think I ate at all. Um,

Sevan Matossian (23:06):

Did you

Andrew Hiller (23:07):

Not really just monster swear to God. It was only monster who? 40

Sevan Matossian (23:13):

Monster energy drinks.

Andrew Hiller (23:13):

Monsters. Yeah. 43 of

Sevan Matossian (23:15):

Em. Oh, it is a kind of cheesy, right? <laugh> you had 43 monster energy drinks over in, in five days.

Andrew Hiller (23:21):

Yeah. How else do you think that we were like zooming around doing what we were doing.

Sevan Matossian (23:27):

Wow. That would explain so much.

Andrew Hiller (23:29):


Sevan Matossian (23:31):

You should watch your interview with the, uh, um, demo team.

Andrew Hiller (23:37):

What happened? What’d I do.

Sevan Matossian (23:39):

You just asked like 18 questions in a period of 22 seconds. It was like, you were trying to set a Guinness world record for how many questions you could ask in the shortest period of time.

Andrew Hiller (23:47):

There were seven people there.

Sevan Matossian (23:49):

I know it was amazing. It was fuck. But you were, you were using performance enhancing drugs. You were using peds.

Andrew Hiller (23:57):

You know, if you were to have Don a drug test on me, I may have popped for having too much caffeine in my system at that time. Yes.

Sevan Matossian (24:04):

Caleb, are you gonna play that? Um, can you play the audio on that? Let’s learn something.

Speaker 4 (24:18):


Andrew Hiller (24:20):


Sevan Matossian (24:22):


Speaker 4 (24:25):

Grier year

Sevan Matossian (24:27):

Grew year, grew year,

Speaker 4 (24:31):

Grew year,

Sevan Matossian (24:32):

Grew year, everyone at home together. Now

Andrew Hiller (24:36):

<laugh> grew year.

Sevan Matossian (24:41):

Okay. Nevermind. Not at home together. Uh,

Andrew Hiller (24:44):

This is your, go ahead.

Sevan Matossian (24:46):

When you said that, um, hips still just wants to look good to the people that really resonated with me. I was like, oh yeah, that is what he’s doing. He doesn’t care about anything. Except for the fact that maybe you made him look bad. Like he, he cares what people think. Like it’s good to care what people think, but there’s a better way to say it. He cares what people think about him outside of the truth. Like who gives a fuck if, uh, like if people think badly of you, but it’s the truth. Who cares if they think badly of you and it’s not true, then I kind of, maybe I kind of get it or like, Hey, you fucked up. The reps just lean into it.

Andrew Hiller (25:25):

His little everyone tries to create this world. Right. Mm-hmm <affirmative> and I got a little bit of this. It’s very interesting. Having walked around and picked up on a couple of things while I was over there. And there’s a whole bunch of people that a whole lot of people know about. And I guess this hip and seal would be one of ’em. And up until that video, maybe no one had seen anything like that of him. And they just had this certain picture of him and it kind of blows it up. And I think that could happen for a whole lot of people in a whole lot of different ways in ways that they wouldn’t really expect. Like that’s not really what that person does or is or says or anything. And they give it’s really interesting.

Sevan Matossian (26:05):

I, I, I, I, I still, I, when I think of him, I just think of him as a super fit dude. And then after your video, I just thought of him as a super fit dude, who has some mobility issues. That’s it that’s my, but, but then when he got upset that you called him out on, it’s like, dude, come on. Like just, just own it. I, I, I do. I don’t think he’s any less fit because, um, 90% of his movements aren’t full range.

Andrew Hiller (26:29):

Well, you look at certain, I, I think it’s de athletes and they’re not very mobile. And one of the most impressive things of some of the CrossFit athletes in particular, Jason Hopper and then Justin Maderas and it was what was actually Ricky from doing well in the handstand pushups was what looked like his shoulder mobility, overhead position, but hopper was crushing it because you could see his shoulder blades kind of moving along with his ability to press all upside down and that dream handstand pushup position. And that’s something, that’s one of the components of fitness. It’s something that very clearly hip and steel no longer has. And it’s something,

Sevan Matossian (27:05):

All right, you are less fit.

Andrew Hiller (27:07):

Well, you’re less fit in accordance to the 10 components of fitness. You go to the CrossFit games. I would venture to bet that hip and steel would really, really struggle with that standard. And, uh, some 65 year olds. There’s probably some people who would be very good at it. And it’s like, you can’t just short the movement to be able to do it, to keep up and then win the CrossFit games as David hip and steel. You’ve gotta work on that position to increase your fitness level.

Sevan Matossian (27:35):


Andrew Hiller (27:35):

Yeah. I mean, right. I mean, his fitness is shit. Yeah. You put ’em on the assault bike. He probably beats everybody. Cuz all you do, um, picking on you now you’re salt life man. And he could hit his number of <laugh> calories, lift the weights, move around, do that wall facing handstand, pushup. That thing is, was one of the best things of the weekend because the athletes that you may have thought would’ve been the best handstand push up. Her were exposed a little bit.

Sevan Matossian (28:01):

I, I wanna show you how racist I am. This guy Yami. He says I did a thousand swings, good job. Then he took a nap and then he says about to hang laundry up and make a booger protein smoothie. Uh

Andrew Hiller (28:15):


Sevan Matossian (28:16):

Oh, Bucci protein smoothie. Uh, he, he, he, this guy looks like this guy looks like he lives in Bangladesh and he washes his clothes by hand. And now he has to, um, hang his laundry. Doesn’t he look like he does his laundry by hand. You’re not as racist as

Andrew Hiller (28:34):

Mean. Yes.

Sevan Matossian (28:34):

Yes. Oh, well you are okay.

Andrew Hiller (28:36):

<laugh> close one. What is, what is this Budd Budi cause I clicked on and you guys were just rolling with it.

Sevan Matossian (28:45):

Someone said, uh, use the word BDSI in the show. And we had, I had to look it up cuz I never heard of it. What it means. Do you know what it means?

Andrew Hiller (28:51):

I got not a clue. Is it like, do we like urban dictionary or is that not cool?

Sevan Matossian (28:56):

I don’t know if we should. Oh, here we go.

Andrew Hiller (28:59):

One second Jason. Or I gotta take a picture of this. This is how I know when I need to like check my messages

Sevan Matossian (29:06):

Odor, but justs an odor it’s when you mix the, the, the smell of the

Andrew Hiller (29:11):

Dick and pussy.

Sevan Matossian (29:12):

Yes. Holy but penis and vagina. And um, when you exercise all three of them vigorously the mixture of the aromas, especially in a humid, like in a sweaty room, humid room, uh, that smell is Bucci and no one, no one in the comments or anyone uses the, uh, word correctly, but I’m, I’m actually fine with the word being that word being used wrong there’s words. I don’t like being used wrong. That one, like people are calling each other Badi and put it in your Badi and it’s just being, it’s been used as a noun and, and a adjective and a verb. It’s fine.

Andrew Hiller (29:50):

Yeah. It shows. Why would you hang laundry when it’s 85 or 80, 80 degrees FHE in the clothes, get ruined. Maybe I’m reading that wrong.
