Sevan Matossian (00:00):

What a great find. Uh, tomorrow morning, guys, uh, bam. We’re live. Tomorrow morning, we have the founder of the, uh, cock tuy board. Cock Uteri. There’re I’m saying it’s not cock tu, it’s cock uteri,

Caleb Beaver (00:17):

Cock uie

Sevan Matossian (00:18):

Cocky. It’s the cock. Oh, there it is. Written down the K uteri board. Uh, while the rest of you guys are sitting around doing your nine to five, uh, wasting your time on Instagram, talking shit about people, blaming people, not taking complete, uh, responsibility and accountability for your lives. This guy made a, uh, uh, a chopping block in the shape of, uh, one of the greatest shapes, uh, on planet Earth. The Caul M balls. Uh, it is, you know, the, the heart. You, you guys know what the shape for the caul and balls is. There it is. And, uh, the founder, c e o of this company, look at, look, you can get the Lieutenant for $139, five star 52, uh, reviews. Um, we will, uh, this, the founder of this company, uh, will be on the show, uh, tomorrow morning at 7:00 AM Uh, someone in, um, I, I was slapping some, uh, troll D bag around who has a private account in, um, in Hiller’s Instagram yesterday. And he responded with some comment like, Hey, uh, Savon, you’re a nobody who just held the camera and asked awkward questions, uh, 10 years ago. What are you still doing around my Instagram account? Has more listeners than your podcast did, which made me think I forgot to tell you guys, or maybe I did tell you guys, and I just want an excuse to tell you guys again. Uh, we got the, uh, year in reviews. Oh, Heidi might be saying some important shit right now. Hold on. Heidi,


I saw you waving your finger around. You got something important to say? No,

Heidi (01:53):

My hand was crampy

Sevan Matossian (01:55):

<laugh>. Oh, Jesus Christ. Don’t let your hands cramp again. Okay. Okay. She was giving the international symbol, you know, she had the, her finger, uh, waving in front of the lens, and that means Chevon shut your mouth. Uh, as I was saying, uh, the Chevon podcast is in the top 0.5% of all podcasts worldwide. Kind of cool, kind of, but I know there’s 2.7 million podcasts, but 0.5% top 1% in podcasts, uh, on Buzz Sprout, uh, in all categories. And, uh, our, here’s the crazy part. Our five biggest podcasts of the year have zero CrossFit, uh, relations, which were they, do you know how happy, the only one that I re I need to go back and look, but the one that stood out to me the most was the one we did with Travis Bain.

Caleb Beaver (02:39):

He’s coming on soon. Yeah.

Sevan Matossian (02:41):

Who’s, yeah. Who’s coming on in a couple days? Again, I’m, I’m so excited. And that’s because we have fascinating guests like the Cock, uteri, cockie board, <laugh>, I need to say a little faster, right? Caleb? Coie.

Caleb Beaver (02:53):

Cacuy. Yeah.

Sevan Matossian (02:54):


Caleb Beaver (02:55):

Unless we really want to emphasize the cock.

Sevan Matossian (02:57):

Yeah, I, and I do thank you. The ccu. Thank you, Victor. I appreciate it. I love you baby. I love you baby. Uh, Barry, MCC Kaner, speaking of, uh, CCU boards, um, this is just the last, uh, heat of Ass Men. And then I think they’re gonna parade out the Good Men. Let’s check with Suza what’s going on, if they’re, uh, Matthew Suza.

Mattew Souza (03:22):

Yo. Hey, real quick, uh, before we jump into it, I just wanted to give a shout out to Izzy and thank her very much. She came in, uh, saw me at the food court and paid for my lunch and said she loved the show. It was a real life chat donation, uh, in person. And so thank you very much for, for lunch. There isn’t, um, Nelson, my came around back to, wait,

Sevan Matossian (03:42):

Wait. You’re saying someone walked up to you, some Rando who likes the show and bought you lunch?

Mattew Souza (03:49):

Yeah. Yeah. She goes, did you order lunch? I said, oh, yeah, I just ordered that. Wait. She goes, oh, well, yeah, I wanted to buy it for you. Hand me a $20 bill. And then I said, oh, no, no, no, no, that’s okay. Thank you so much. She goes, no, no, no, I really love the show. And I said, no, I, I can’t accept this. Thank you. And she goes, okay, well, I’m just gonna drop it on the ground stuff,

Sevan Matossian (04:04):

<laugh>. Oh my God, I love her. I love her.

Mattew Souza (04:07):

Thank you very much, Izzy. I really appreciate that.

Sevan Matossian (04:09):

Hey, that’s cool. And remember, uh, and I’m not saying this to you, Susan, but just all of you in, in the world out there, uh, uh, receiving is an art form. And remember, if you don’t accept God’s gift, God will stop giving. Anyway, esy. Uh, but, but you did the right thing, Susan, by the way, for letting her drop it on the floor. I’m not, I’m not shitting on you for that.

Mattew Souza (04:28):

No, I at all. I, I took it, I took it, I took it, I took it. She didn’t have to drop, she no money hit the floor. I took it from her, and I thanked her very much. And, uh, sent, she was, uh, you know, people like her are the reason why I’m doing it. It’s awesome. So, and that will spin around to, uh, what you guys really wanna see, which is our, our third heat light up, uh, here at the <inaudible>.

Sevan Matossian (04:52):

Okay. So this is the, um, is it dudes?

Mattew Souza (04:56):

No, no. Girls. Girls, ladies. We’re going first.

Sevan Matossian (04:59):

Oh, interesting. Hey, that kind of doesn’t make sense. They already have the dudes out there. Why don’t they just let the elite dudes go?

Mattew Souza (05:05):

They already got that out there, right? Yeah. Yeah. But nope, they’re lining up here as you guys can see. And I’ll give us a little walk around. We’ll fall ’em out to the crowd and, uh, see how close we can get.

Sevan Matossian (05:16):

Hey, that doesn’t look like the corral you were in yesterday. Like, I’m just, just, uh,

Mattew Souza (05:22):

No. So this is part one. They come from up, like you guys can’t really see, but they come from up here, which is that warmup area. Okay. There’s your dog whistle. Yeah. And then they come down to this check-in area here first, sorry, check-in area here first. Then they’ll line ’em all up, check everybody day, make sure everybody’s here. And then they’ll take them all across down to that tent. You can barely see over there. And then I’ll fall ’em over there, and that’ll look more like what we saw over there.

Sevan Matossian (05:49):

Okay. And there’s a bunch. I see. Uh, although your, your image is really choppy. A bunch of media people starting to swarm now too.

Mattew Souza (05:58):

Yeah, exactly. Exactly. I may need to restart the phone. That seems to help. So if the frame rate’s bad, let me know. I’ll restart it and

Sevan Matossian (06:05):

Jump back on. Okay. Uh, Tyler Collins s podcast is the best. Thanks, dude. I, I, uh, I like hearing that. I, I am, uh, yeah. Uh, Nick, uh, sh sh Shrader, uh, that’s chevon’s money now. Yes. Nutts Nutts. Massive thank you to Sev and the entire team. You should be so proud of yourselves. Thank you, uh, for the immense work. You continue to produce love from the United Kingdom. Thanks, nutts. That’s cool. When I was a kid, I used to like catching Nutts. My mom would take me to a stream, and the nutts, uh, during the wintertime would be everywhere. And, uh, I would collect them.

Taylor Self (06:42):

I used to catch

Sevan Matossian (06:43):

Salers. Yeah, those are great too, right? Yep.

Taylor Self (06:47):

Apparently you fucking like, kill ’em if you touch ’em with your skin because the oils from your skin are really bad for them.

Sevan Matossian (06:52):

Oh, no. Shit. You

Taylor Self (06:53):

Just, yeah. So you just killed a bunch of nutts, but

Caleb Beaver (06:58):

Did you ever keep them as a pet?

Sevan Matossian (07:00):

I did. I kept a lot of them. I always re I always released them though, but I kept them for weeks and fed ’em crickets and shit.

Caleb Beaver (07:06):

I had one, it was like a really long, um, like skinny, uh, salamander. And I put it in the little container and it actually crawled out and ran away. I don’t know what happened to it.

Sevan Matossian (07:18):

Oh, did you have one of those ones where the legs are so small, it kind of looks like a snake when you first see it?

Caleb Beaver (07:22):


Sevan Matossian (07:23):

Yeah, those

Caleb Beaver (07:24):

Ones. I caught it in a, on a trail somewhere in California.

Sevan Matossian (07:30):

Uh, Savon, we are wearing the same shirt today. I, well, I know, I know. Uh, Susan looks like he’s morphing into the Dave Castro. God, Gotti can’t wait till. Uh, thank you for switching cameras. My goodness. Susie, your camera’s bad today. Uh, okay, here we go. Where are we? Okay, uh, nutts and crabs. Sev on’s favorite pets. Ah, I get what you did.

Caleb Beaver (07:55):

<laugh> <laugh>.

Sevan Matossian (07:58):

I used to keep my crabs in a Al Altos case. Have you ever heard that story Taylor

Taylor Self (08:04):

Krabs in an Alt Alto’s case?

Sevan Matossian (08:05):

No. Yeah. Okay. Well, that’s for a different day. Hey, I want you to know that, um, today, uh, earlier we, we were having some pretty big storms in, um, California. And today, a police officer, a highway patrolman, uh, in Palo, a Palo Alto Highway patrolman on, we have tons and tons of cliffs in California. You guys tons everywhere, all over the place. It’s cliff heaven. And this happened, uh, yesterday. Uh, the roads are just nuts here right now cause it’s been raining basically for a week straight. And here’s a car that’s dangling off the edge of a cliff. And this highway patrolman got out of his car and helped these three people to safety and talked them through how to get out of the car and save their lives.

John Young (08:54):


Sevan Matossian (08:57):

And so, uh, if you are a woke douche bag, now is your time to put your ear right up to the speaker. Cause I’m about to tell you something to help your life. And if you’re not a woke douche bag, you can go ahead and go to the bathroom now or take a break. Listen


For those you idiots who hate on cops, cuz they have to deal with drunk people at the fucking McDonald’s fast food line who point fake guns at them and then accidentally shoot those guys. And you get upset that you think that they should be trained better, because that happens five times a year in 365 million, 365 million pullovers a year. I know most of you can’t even comprehend that because you’re fucking mathy literate. You have no way of even to contextualize or put that into any relativity. But I am not worried about those 12 drunk people who get killed at McDonald’s every year in the fast food line, fucking waving a fake gun. The reason why we have cops is because of this. Cuz on rainy days, instead of being home with their family and running a stupid podcast from their fucking office with their buddies, they’re out on the street savings. People’s kids who drive like shit and are dangling off of cliffs. People who hate on cops. I wanna fucking slap ’em around. It’s fucking idiocy. You want to defund the police. Those could have been your kids. Yeah, exactly right, Travis. I know. It’s, it’s, it’s fucking batshit crazy. Okay, where were we? I did a little PSA before every show. It’s nice, right? Amen. Tyler Collins. Thank you. Was

Taylor Self (10:35):

There a video with that?

Sevan Matossian (10:36):

No. I wish. Hey, and you know they have the video cuz that’s from his cop cam, right? Yeah.

John Young (10:40):

Yeah, that’s from dash cam for sure.

Sevan Matossian (10:42):

Yeah. It makes me think he didn’t really save them <laugh>, <laugh> that the car just went off the edge of the cliff.

Taylor Self (10:51):

Cops are like every other per Oh, is that Julian Alrez or No, that would just walk back. Heidi, the guy just walked past Heidi. He probably would not have been in the

Sevan Matossian (10:58):

Stands. No, no. He’s, he’s stuck up in Washington freezing his ass off.

Taylor Self (11:03):

Is that where he lives now? I thought he lived in California.

Sevan Matossian (11:07):

Zi Yaa. Wow. That’s a great name. I would rock that shit. Yaa Smith. Uh, that’s weird, right? Yaa and then with the Smith.

Taylor Self (11:21):

Interesting. For

Sevan Matossian (11:21):

Sure. Uhs you were saving lives in a different way. Okay. Thank you. Amen. Uh, seven. Put an extra shot of espresso in the paper street, uh, coffee today. Uh, you know what’s interesting, Anthony? I did start the morning with two espressos and usually I just started it with one. John, do you drink coffee?

John Young (11:37):

Uh, nope. I’ve never had it.

Sevan Matossian (11:39):

Wow. Any caffeine?

John Young (11:41):

Uh, yeah. I take caffeine pills all the time, but, um,

Sevan Matossian (11:44):

You’re joking. Not coffee. You’re joking. Really?

John Young (11:47):

Yeah. I’ve never had coffee, so No, I kind of don’t wanna start.

Sevan Matossian (11:50):

So usually wait a second. You’ve had a ca you’ve taken a caffeine pill. Dude,

John Young (11:54):

Those take

Caleb Beaver (11:55):

Caffeine pills. People who are in the military and they get ’em from gas stations.

John Young (11:59):

That’s where I get mine. Yeah,

Taylor Self (12:00):

They’re so jet alert.

Caleb Beaver (12:01):

No. Oh my god. Dude,

Sevan Matossian (12:03):

They’re so bad for you. John. John. John. John. John. Listen,

Caleb Beaver (12:06):

Listen. Intervention time,

Sevan Matossian (12:08):

That’s like a Catholic girl saying she doesn’t fuck because she, she’s been told to be a virgin, but she sucks dick and takes it in the ass. Lemme tell you, if you are taking caffeine pills, stop today <laugh> and just start drinking coffee. I’m, I I I implore you, you, God is frowning on you for taking it. Yeah. Yeah. It’s like, it’s like taking in the butt and sucking dick because you’re not supposed to have premarital sex. Please, please just start drinking coffee.

John Young (12:34):


Caleb Beaver (12:34):

Get ’em out of the coin machine in the

Sevan Matossian (12:36):

Bathroom too. Oh my goodness. This is crazy though.

Taylor Self (12:38):

Natural caffeine is so much better than that. It’s it That’s terrible for you.

Sevan Matossian (12:42):

Yeah. Anals horrible. Do not participate in anal. You

John Young (12:46):

Never can. I can I, can I ask why? Why is, uh, I believe you guys, but can I ask why is it, uh, so much worse than regular go and then coffee, caffeine? Well,

Sevan Matossian (12:55):

I have no idea. I’m just judging you. I just, I’m gonna make, there’s a, there’s a drug addict component to popping the pills. Yeah. Sorry. Go.

Taylor Self (13:00):

I’m gonna make a logical assumption and say, I’ll just draw a comparison. Think about the difference between eating an orange slice that you cut out of a fresh orange and then drinking a cup of orange juice. And then think about taking natural caffeine through tea or black coffee and then taking a caffeine pill. But I’m sure it’s a hundred times worse. Whatever fillers or chemicals they put in that pill to stabilize it on a shelf and et cetera, et cetera. It’s gotta be

Sevan Matossian (13:26):

Terrible. I think the order of just ask caffeine, the ass way to get it is pills, C4 and then coffee. I mean, I’m not a proponent. Yeah. And basically there you’re just putting water over the beans and trying to get some of the drugs off of it. Right? That’s what we’re doing when we drink coffee.

John Young (13:41):

Yeah. My wife loves coffee. I just, I’ve never had it.

Taylor Self (13:45):

You’ve never had coffee? Mm-hmm. <affirmative>. That’s fucking crazy, dude. Why? Have you never even tried it? You’ve never tried it?

John Young (13:51):

I don’t. No, I never have. And then it’s

Sevan Matossian (13:53):

Just, I don’t blame you. I ain’t hate on that. Hey, so if you don’t take those pills in the morning, do you have a, do you get a headache?

John Young (13:58):

No. So I drink my pre-workout every morning, even on my way to church, even if I’m not working out. Like it’s basically coffee for me. Um, like I just drink that to wake up

Sevan Matossian (14:08):


John Young (14:09):

Morning no matter

Sevan Matossian (14:09):

What. Okay, that’s okay.

John Young (14:11):

And then <laugh> and then in the afternoon, I’m usually pretty tired around like four o’clock. And so I’ll just pop a caffeine pill. Uh, before I do my second session,

Sevan Matossian (14:21):

Dude, there’s some serious hostility towards you, John. Listen to this. Uh, uh, chemicals in the pills, dude. Suspend. This guy wants me to suspend your link to the show for a week. <laugh>,

Taylor Self (14:32):

Have you ever We

Sevan Matossian (14:33):

John Young (14:41):

John’s like, I’m so, I’m sorry. Caleb. Are you, you look in Disbel. <laugh>

Sevan Matossian (14:44):

John John is basically a referee. Taylor and I will kill ourselves if John’s not here. We, if we don’t, if we don’t, uh, have John, uh, we will. Taylor and I will start fighting. Just think of him as the referee.

Taylor Self (14:53):

This guy Ryan Tue has got his mouth and tongue all over 30. Asshole. Allegedly

Sevan Matossian (15:00):

<laugh>. Hey, co. I, I, I don’t think coffee’s for everyone. I now

John Young (15:05):

Listen all of like, my like metrics, like my heart rate, my, uh, like any, anything you want to take, all of that is like, like, great. Phenomenal. Any, anything. How old are you John? 28.

Sevan Matossian (16:13):

Oh, that was regular.

Taylor Self (16:14):

I also, th well, like, I’d be like, oh, I’m fucking quitting today. And I’d throw out all my pot off my roof and then like the next and two hours later I’d be on my roof. Like looking through the gutter. <laugh>

Sevan Matossian (16:26):

Been there. I’ve done all that fun stuff. Oh shit. Hey, one time I flushed some weed, I, I was renting this house. I was growing, uh, uh, and growing in and I flushed some weed down the toilet and it popped up in the front yard.

Sevan Matossian (18:42):

Okay, let’s go over to the Heidi Kru cam please and let’s get the show on the road. This is going to be a fun one to watch. Uh, you should pull up the real stream people. Uh, it’s called the Elite Broadcast. I’m gonna put a link in the description if I, I can’t even get this fucking link to work. I got it. Here we go. You do. Okay. So, uh, we just put a link in the description. That is the link that we are watching, uh, camera currently is on Sarah Sigmund’s daughter, uh, Kate Caitlin Van Zeal and, uh, who’s the other one in their group? Fefi?

John Young (19:22):

No. Um, no, it was

Taylor Self (19:24):

Caitlin Van Zeal.

John Young (19:25):

It was Emily Rolf, but they

Taylor Self (19:27):

Substituted her Campos.

Sevan Matossian (19:29):

Okay. Victoria Campos. Okay. Yep. I got my Browns, uh, confused. Uh, the stream you are watching that we’re doing is about 20 or 30 seconds ahead, but they have a beautiful stream over at Waap. Polooza. You need to go to loud and live on YouTube or click the link. We just posted, uh, seven on your best friend Matt is on the live broadcast. Tell ’em I said hi, Mr. Fraser. Oh wow. They’re way behind us.

Caleb Beaver (20:00):

Yeah, it looks like it.

Sevan Matossian (20:02):

They’re way behind us today. Uh, would you like to go over the, uh, workout Taylor and give us a, a rough idea of what we’re watching here?

Taylor Self (20:10):

Yeah, so at 3 21 go in teams of three athlete one’s going to advance the rope. Athletes two and three are going to advance two one each of the following three implements. They get to choose either repair kettlebells ca pair, dumbbells, or a barbell. And they’re gonna hold those implements while partner one is completing 10 rope climbs for the women. Once partner one has completed their 10 rope climbs, while the other two teammates have been holding the implements in any position, they will move on to 48 synchronized hang power cleans athlete that just finished the rope climbs. We’ll move on to the third implement that’s not being held, whether it be dumbbells, kettlebells, or barbell. And they will all complete 48 hang power cleans in synchronization where the synchronized portion of the rep is where the weights are supported in the rack position and the knees and hipster in full extension.


After that round, the next athlete’s gonna advance to rope climbs while the other two athletes are holding one of the three implements that athlete will perform 10 rope climbs, they’ll move back and now they’ll perform 48 sink row, shoulder to overhead with three implements. They’ll do those reps. Then finally, the last athlete who has done no climbs to this point will go back to the rope for the third round. They’ll do 10 rope climbs while the other two athletes are holding the implements. And then they’ll finish off with 48 synchronized thrusters on the three different weightlifting implements. If at any point in time the athletes break the holds before athlete one, two, or three has finished their 10 rope climbs, they will all be penalized with a set of six front squats.

Sevan Matossian (21:45):

Hey, look at, uh, mall O’Brien. She’s not even holding those kettlebells. They are 100% resting on her shoulders. And uh, and I think I saw Ariel Lowen doing her front squat like this. I mean, it’s just resting on her rack and

Taylor Self (21:57):

She’s just, I wonder if they’re allowed to do that with the dumbbells as well.

Sevan Matossian (22:00):

Uh, something happened, GZA is getting talked to by, uh, the ref. Okay, here they go. They’re trying to get some synchro, uh, hang cleans in. It looks like Gaza’s team is the, uh, and Carrie Pierce are are in the lead here. Unless she’s in a penalty.

Taylor Self (22:20):

No, she annihilated the rope climbs.

Sevan Matossian (22:23):

Uh, Gand did. Yep. Wow. Okay.

Taylor Self (22:31):

Kettlebell hang cleans are by far the hardest of all these.

Caleb Beaver (22:36):

They need to be synchronized at the top of each rep. Yep.

Taylor Self (22:38):


Sevan Matossian (22:39):

<affirmative>. And you think that’s why Nestler’s doing ’em? Oh, they’re rotating. They rotate.

Taylor Self (22:44):

You don’t have to rotate, but they’re choosing to.

Caleb Beaver (22:49):

Do you think that is a better strategy?

Taylor Self (22:52):

Uh, hey, I believe so because the dumbbells in the kettlebells are harder than the barbell, you can rest

Caleb Beaver (22:58):

More of a curl or

Taylor Self (23:00):

No, because there’s not really true rest in the front rack position with the kettlebells or the dumbbells. Unless you’re taking a long time to set the kettlebells on top of the shoulders, the rack position with both those implements, you’re using a lot of your musculature to support it. Whereas the rack position with the barbell, you can rest on your shoulders.

Sevan Matossian (23:17):

Uh, that’s fefi with, uh, Sarah Sigmund’s daughter and Caitlin Vanille. Right? That’s not Victoria Campos, right?

Taylor Self (23:25):

No. No, I don’t

Caleb Beaver (23:26):

Think that’s FE’S Victoria. That’s not fea. That’s Victoria Camp Fey’s on the girls. She’s with uh, Alexis Raptors.

Sevan Matossian (23:33):

Oh, okay. God, why do I keep getting them confused? Do they look alike? No, not even close.

Caleb Beaver (23:38):

They’re kind of similar.

Sevan Matossian (23:40):

Uh, and is that Alexis RTUs in the lane just to the right of Carrie Pierce and, uh, GZA in the back there?

John Young (23:48):

I can’t tell.

Taylor Self (23:50):

I couldn’t see.

Sevan Matossian (23:54):

I don’t even know who this team is

Taylor Self (23:56):

Either. Do I? It’s not Humble Girls.

John Young (23:59):

I think this is Med Girls. Is that, is that Karata Santa Hua?

Taylor Self (24:05):

Not sure

Caleb Beaver (24:08):

If that’s lane one. It’s the Cales golf team.

John Young (24:12):

Oh, the Russian team.

Taylor Self (24:13):

The Russians,

Sevan Matossian (24:14):

Yeah. Hey, that girl tho that girls the dumbbells are gonna blow their arms up. I didn’t even think about that because they’re basically doing curls.

John Young (24:25):

No, I think it’s smarter to do. And JR talked about this earlier, to do the in between the legs with the dumbbells.

Taylor Self (24:31):

Look at Carrie Pierce. She’s going outside the legs with the kettlebells. That’s interesting.

Caleb Beaver (24:37):

You would prefer it on the inside.

Taylor Self (24:39):

Way easier on the inside collision. Cough.

John Young (24:41):

Yeah, it’s, it’s like a kettlebell swing versus a curl and something You’re gonna have to hold on with your grip a whole bunch.

Taylor Self (24:48):

I wonder why there she’s not holding the dumbbells in the front rack position. I wonder if you’re not allowed to rest the handle of the dumbbells on top of the shoulder.

John Young (24:56):

I’ve saw, I I’ve seen people do it. Just hold it.

Taylor Self (25:00):

Well, if you can, it’s by far the easiest way to hold it. And who are we watching here with the braids?

Sevan Matossian (25:10):

That’s sig, uh, si to dogs

Taylor Self (25:12):

C her daughter. Okay. Yeah. Emma Quas team

John Young (25:15):

Laura Hoorvath team’s making a move.

Sevan Matossian (25:18):

And that might be ler next to her. No, uh, that’s uh, Chandler Smith’s wife, right?

Taylor Self (25:24):

Yep. Yep. Chandler Smith. Jesse Smith. Yeah. Laurel Horvath is a freakazoid on the rope climbs. So I wonder if she’s the one on the rope pulling ahead, making the move.

Caleb Beaver (25:34):

It looks like her in the middle of that trio.

Taylor Self (25:36):

Yep. Seriously. Or sorry, Laura Hvat. So gone on the rope.

Sevan Matossian (25:40):

Uh, five minutes and 40 seconds into the workout. The Laura Hvat, uh, Gabby Manawa team is, uh, in the lead team. B p N by one Rope Climb. Who’s the third girl on that? I can’t remember. James Simmons. Uh, Jamie Simmons. That’s

John Young (25:54):

Right. If I had to guess, Gabby went first. And then Laura and Jamie will be last.

Sevan Matossian (26:01):

If you haven’t subscribed to the Sev on podcast already, now is the time to do it. You can do it even from your TV set. You should subscribe. You can unsubscribe later. When I start to annoy you subscribe now. Like now help the algorithm make a comment. Tell us which cartoon character you think Taylor Self looks like and whether you think John Young should pivot to coffee or just drop caffeine altogether.

John Young (26:26):

I wanna know what cartoon character I look like.

Sevan Matossian (26:28):

There you go. You look like a Roman cre Roman creme Coff’s son.

John Young (26:37):

He’s probably very upset how, um, bad I am at aerobic capacity. Then,

Sevan Matossian (26:43):

Uh, team B p N is first to the, uh, second round shoulder to overhead. They have to do 48 of these. Uh, the doers are in second place, uh, tied with the a k a Humble Killers. Who’s on the Humble Killers team?

John Young (26:57):

That’s Carrie Pierce, Alex, Ariel Gza and Ariel Lowen. Yep.

Sevan Matossian (27:02):

Good. I’d like to see them do well. I’d like to see them take a second in this or a first in

John Young (27:06):

This and team team VPN N is kind of running away with it right now.

Sevan Matossian (27:10):

And then in fourth place is the Coff team. And I don’t think we can say a single, we know how to pronounce a single one of their names. Do we?

Taylor Self (27:17):

Can you pull ’em off?

Sevan Matossian (27:20):

And then in, uh, uh, in fourth place now, uh, that has switched place with the collision Ofoff team is P 10 performance

John Young (27:28):

And that’s page Shaza team.

Sevan Matossian (27:30):

Okay. And Paige Shaza deserves some love.

John Young (27:33):

You want me to try to pronounce these on the coff team?

Sevan Matossian (27:37):

Yeah, yeah, yeah. Let’s have some fun. Let me see if we try

John Young (27:40):

Pronou. We got Sunni Trube guy.

Sevan Matossian (27:44):

Nice. I’ll take it.

John Young (27:45):


Sevan Matossian (27:48):

Uh, I don’t, I don’t know if I’ll take that last name. What’s her last name

John Young (27:51):

Taylor Self (27:53):

Sevan Matossian (27:56):

Yeah. Thank

John Young (27:57):

You. Oh, I don’t, I don’t have, I have a different name in front of me. Okay. Uh, Aja Jerra Silva.

Taylor Self (28:04):

Wow. Silva. Wow. Silva.

Sevan Matossian (28:07):

Thank you. John Young.

John Young (28:09):

Sorry, I was looking at a different list, but that works.

Sevan Matossian (28:12):

Uh, team BP n six reps ahead of the doers. Um, it looked like they got their pacing off a little bit. Laura’s holding, uh, uh, for an exaggerated amount of time at the top there. Good, good. They’re pulling out the camera angle so we can see all three of them now. Jamie Simmons on the front with 115 pound bar behind her. Gabby Manawa with the dumbbells. And then behind her was Laura Hvat with the, uh, kettlebells.

John Young (28:45):

The daughters have kind of made a move to get even here because they were behind by

Taylor Self (28:51):

14 reps. Oh, Simmons to failure.

Sevan Matossian (28:53):

Yeah, she was shaking. She was shaking. Right.

Taylor Self (28:56):

Little, little elbow buckle on the barbell.

Sevan Matossian (29:00):

Oh, the doers have now, uh, passed up. Team p n

John Young (29:03):

Yeah, they have

Taylor Self (29:06):

Sold to overhead on the kettlebell.

Sevan Matossian (29:09):

Oh, are they not locking out?

Taylor Self (29:11):

No. It’s just an interesting position. She’s not taking it down to the true rack. I wonder what the standard is on that.

John Young (29:16):

All right. Mel’s gonna take this home

Sevan Matossian (29:20):

And, and so is the last person Theoretically should be the best rope climber.

John Young (29:24):

Yeah. Because they’re under the most fatigue.

Sevan Matossian (29:28):

Right? Okay. What is she waiting for? Oh, they have to be holding. Wow.

Taylor Self (29:32):

Wait for Karin to get her chalk.

Sevan Matossian (29:34):

Holy shit. That was a fuck up.

John Young (29:37):

All right. They’re tied up, but it is

Taylor Self (29:40):

First. Looks like mal

John Young (29:41):

Wrapped an idea. I’m shocked they picked Gabby to go last.

Taylor Self (29:45):

She might be really good at regular rope climbs.

John Young (29:48):

Yeah, but I mean, just pulling capacity <laugh>, you would, Hey, you know what I mean?

Sevan Matossian (29:53):

Hey guys, this is a race. Are they done? Is the rope climb the last thing or do they have to do 48 40?

Taylor Self (29:59):

They’ve got the rope climb.
