Mattew Souza (00:01):

Mm-hmm. <affirmative>.

Sevan Matossian (00:02):

Yeah. So you don’t know until it goes red,

Mattew Souza (00:05):


Sevan Matossian (00:06):

And it says it across the screen. You’re live.

Caleb Beaver (00:11):


Sevan Matossian (00:13):

Like up top in the left hand corner?

Mattew Souza (00:15):

No, like in the middle of the screen.

Sevan Matossian (00:17):

Oh, it does?

Mattew Souza (00:18):


Caleb Beaver (00:19):

I don’t see that.

Sevan Matossian (00:21):

Um, did someone get taller as he got jacked in this version? Uh, uh, Colin Lawrence responded, uh, I saw him yesterday. He’s solid, but he is no bigger than Avi

Caleb Beaver (00:34):

<laugh>. Oh man. <laugh>

Mattew Souza (00:39):

Freaking Colin.

Sevan Matossian (00:41):

Uh, that was cool. That was nice meeting Colin. He’s taller than I thought

Mattew Souza (00:45):

It was.

Sevan Matossian (00:47):

I think he’s, um, he’s like a, uh, I think he’s a pretty hardcore runner triathlete too. I was kind of surprised. He, but he built like a CrossFitter.

Mattew Souza (00:55):

Oh yeah. Definitely not a runner’s build.

Sevan Matossian (00:58):

Yeah. Ai chevon. Um, wad. Zombie made that for me. Dude. I did not sleep good. So good. Last night

Mattew Souza (01:07):

I slept like five hours.

Sevan Matossian (01:09):

I went to the, um, so, so, so, oh yeah. For those of you guys don’t know yesterday. Hi, Fergie. Good morning, Jessica. Good morning, Alan. Good morning. Uh, yesterday, uh, Greg had his broken science, uh, what’d you call it? Symposium. I don’t know what that word means. Symposium.

Mattew Souza (01:26):


Sevan Matossian (01:27):

Symposium. Does that work? Caleb? Symposium?

Caleb Beaver (01:31):

Yeah. That works.

Sevan Matossian (01:32):


Caleb Beaver (01:33):

Conference Symposium. About the same.

Sevan Matossian (01:36):

Um, uh, sev is is the reason I fell in love with CrossFit.


Uh, yeah, that actually did make me, when I saw that pick, I did want to get juiced up a symposium. A collection of essays or papers are particular subject by a number of contributors. Okay. Yeah. It was a symposium, kind of the performance version. And anyway, Greg went up there and he, well, first Emily Kaplan, that, that chick I had on the show last week went up there and she kind of like, gave like the super big picture. And then Greg went there and like, defined, uh, what science is. And then, uh, showed where, where it got broken. Whi which fuck man. Hopefully that could be turned into like a bunch of animations and shit. So we can all show our kids. Like, that needs to be like, I, I always show, like, I want that to be like something I show my kid every day. A little piece of that just basically how to think. You see something, you make an observation about it, and then you measure it. And then those measurements are, are, are what turn into facts. And then, and then it goes on from there.

Caleb Beaver (02:41):

It’s, it’s,

Sevan Matossian (02:41):

It’s, it’s just like, it would allow you to just always know that a dude’s a dude or that two plus two is four. Or a girl’s a girl.

Caleb Beaver (02:53):


Sevan Matossian (02:54):

Uh, I’m beat. Uh, ow. Allison was there. Yeah. I saw Allison there. I Gabe there. I hung out with Gabe. I hung out with Athena. I am beat. Yesterday was incredible. It felt like early CrossFit all over again. Yeah. It was cool. Don Fall was there. I gotta say hi to Don again. I, I, I did not like, uh, there was parts of it, like, about like, personally that I did not like it was too many people for me.

Mattew Souza (03:17):

Too many speakers?

Sevan Matossian (03:18):

No, no, no. Just people in general. Like, I prefer, like, you know, like I, we were in a room with 300 people. I don’t like that. Hmm. And, and I had like safety nets. Like you and Hiller were kind of like my safety nets. If I started panicking, I would just go stand by one of you guys

Mattew Souza (03:35):

<laugh> me in the back quarter.

Sevan Matossian (03:38):

Yeah. I just, I didn’t in, and even after the after party, I just did. I, I got overwhelmed. I, I, I want to talk to people, but I can’t give people my full attention. And so I start to get fucking overwhelmed. There’s too many people there we knew.

Mattew Souza (03:53):

Yeah. There’s a lot.

Sevan Matossian (03:55):

Um, so, so these speakers spoke and this dude spoke Thomas Siegfried, who I’ve heard speak before. I don’t remember which one he was, but he got a standing ovation. He basically explained to the crowd that, um, cal, uh, uh, cancer, they’ve been barking up the wrong tree on trying to cure cancer. And he gave all these examples about how ca uh, cancer’s, uh, a metabolic disease. And we should be focused on the mitochondria. It was, it was so good. Yeah. Oh, look, cha, oh, he’s been on Chaffey’s. That’s the guy that was on our podcast. The guy that eats a steak. And Thomas was on his podcast. Man. Dude, this guy was, this guy was amazing.

Mattew Souza (04:34):

Yeah, he is

Sevan Matossian (04:39):

Crazy. Well, there it is. That shit was crazy. Impressive. Here’s the thing, even if what that guy was saying isn’t true, like someone like, I don’t know how it could fucking be ignored. He gave all these crazy examples and showed all these studies and he’s written so many papers. Oh yeah. That guy was your favorite, Alison. Yeah, he was great. He got, I mean, you got a standing ovation. That was nuts.

Mattew Souza (05:00):

Yeah. He had some really powerful stuff too. Like when he was talking about the cancer research with that young kid.

Sevan Matossian (05:07):

Yeah, yeah, yeah.

Mattew Souza (05:09):

That shit was crazy.

Sevan Matossian (05:10):

How about the fact that you could take the nucleus of a cancer cell and put it into another cell and the cancer doesn’t spread? Mm-hmm. <affirmative>, you take the mitochondria of a cancer cell and put it into another cell and it spreads. It’s like, uh, okay. Oh yeah. I saw, I saw a Miranda there. I saw Miranda there. You know, I drove to the after party with the, with the, the doctor Katina Thornton, who, uh, was, uh, Danielle. Brandon’s kind of like bodyguard at the games that year. She was the one that like, went everywhere with Danielle when Danielle was toxic.

Mattew Souza (05:45):

Toxic. These are so nice. Isn’t she

Sevan Matossian (05:49):


Mattew Souza (05:50):


Sevan Matossian (05:50):

Oh, dude, she’s dope.

Mattew Souza (05:51):

Yeah. I’ve worked with her for the past couple years. She’s great.

Sevan Matossian (05:54):

Her husband drove. Cause I, I’d had a couple <laugh>. I had six drinks at the

Mattew Souza (06:00):

Six drinks.

Sevan Matossian (06:02):

<laugh>? Well, that I had four. And then my wife ordered me a double. Who orders a double?

Mattew Souza (06:07):


Sevan Matossian (06:09):

<laugh>. The lady goes, you won’t taste it. I go, oh, I can’t drink a double. She goes, you won’t taste it. I’m like, I’m not, I’m not fucking worried about the taste. I hate all that shit.

Mattew Souza (06:18):

<laugh>. That’s funny.

Sevan Matossian (06:24):

Uh, and, and there was this other guy there. I’m gonna have to have this guy on. Um,

Mattew Souza (06:29):

Malcolm Kendrick.

Sevan Matossian (06:30):

Thank you. That guy, Malcolm Kendrick, um, he’s a CLO expert. He’s been a colliding expert. And that’s the whole thing with the, with the, with the jbi. Jy

Mattew Souza (06:43):

<laugh>. That’s a good way to sneak that in there.

Sevan Matossian (06:46):

Gibb jab, gibe Jbi, uh, clotting. That’s a’s a whole, it’s a clotting issue. I hope Noah’s eye gets better, or his ear or whatever, wherever the clot was that made him lose his humor. Oh, well you don’t know that Savan. You don’t know that. You’re right. They don’t,

Mattew Souza (06:59):

They caught Thickett.

Sevan Matossian (07:01):


Mattew Souza (07:03):

It his

Sevan Matossian (07:03):

Book. I bought that audio book yesterday. I might listen to that On the way home. My fucking 12 hour ride home tomorrow morning.

Mattew Souza (07:09):

<laugh>, you can listen to it twice. <laugh>.

Sevan Matossian (07:11):

Thank you.

Mattew Souza (07:12):

Good dude.

Sevan Matossian (07:13):

It was nice. I hung out with, I, I mostly, I, I hung out with Hiller a lot. I hung out with Su, hung out with Greg a lot. Of course, I think that, uh, I think I, I don’t know if I should say this

Mattew Souza (07:28):


Sevan Matossian (07:29):

I’m pretty sure someone, some people were hitting on me.

Mattew Souza (07:33):


Sevan Matossian (07:35):

Caleb turned his head like a dog that like, just heard like a car pull up. Huh?

Mattew Souza (07:39):

Are you sure?

Sevan Matossian (07:40):

No, I am not. I’m no way. That’s why it’s like such a bold thing. I’m afraid Colton Merton’s is gonna make a fucking, uh, like a video about it. Like the video where he schooled me when I was talking about how rough my hands were

Mattew Souza (07:52):

And he fucked me up. I think that works. Pig are hitting on me. Yeah.

Sevan Matossian (07:55):

<laugh>. I’m gonna see him. I’m gonna, Colton’s gonna make a video where it’s that audio plane and he’s like throwing pigs in the back of a trailer. <laugh> and no, no one sitting on

Mattew Souza (08:03):

You do <laugh>. That

Sevan Matossian (08:06):

Was fucked up that he did that.

Mattew Souza (08:08):

That was awesome. He,

Sevan Matossian (08:10):

Yeah, he was you asshole. Yes. Rv. He was cute.

Mattew Souza (08:13):

Was his name Todd? Yeah.

Sevan Matossian (08:16):

He just came at me like this.

Mattew Souza (08:18):

<laugh>. Um, my goodness. Yeah.

Sevan Matossian (08:28):

I got to, I hung out with Athena’s mom. I really liked her. I like affectionate people. I feel safe around people’s moms for some reason.

Mattew Souza (08:36):


Sevan Matossian (08:36):

You know what I mean? Like that. Not, not that way. Why do you everything have to be crass with you?

Mattew Souza (08:41):

Boy, <laugh> make a lot of your mom jokes, and then you try to get Seriously, I really like hanging out with people’s moms

Sevan Matossian (08:48):

<laugh>. I do. I I like hanging out people’s moms. I’m gonna tell you guys a funny story, Alison. You don’t listen to this one.

Caleb Beaver (08:55):

Oh boy. <laugh>,

Sevan Matossian (08:57):

The event’s going on, right? This, there’s some serious shit being talked about. <laugh> and Allison’s there, and she’s wearing a pink, um, tank top, like the kinds that my like, like a, like a spaghetti strap one. Like the, like the shit, like, like a, like the, um, the Tolo version would be like a wife feeder, but it’s like the one girls wear, like when they, like, they sleep in ’em and shit.

Caleb Beaver (09:17):

Spaghetti strap.

Sevan Matossian (09:18):

Yeah, spaghetti strap. And then, and then you can hear something. You can see the boobs a little bit. But Allison has huge boobs, and so you can see a lot of boob. And sh and she’s dressed and she’s wearing these black pants. <laugh>. Oh, dude, you’re not supposed to be in here. I’m telling a story about you

Caleb Beaver (09:33):


Sevan Matossian (09:34):

And she’s wearing these black pa uh, like Lululemons and she’s wearing this top, and she, and, and the, and it’s going. And she’s like, the event was kind of long, like over two hours. And I know I w I should show pics. I don’t think I got a picture with her. They’ll be one that turns up. I’ll show you. I don’t know what you call it, but like, you, you have to, if she walks by you, you try not to stare. It’s like that. But, so there’s 300 people sitting down and they’re all facing, and, and, and she comes in through this side door, like she’s used the bathroom or something. And I, I, I see like 80% of the heads go like this. I haven’t seen Dawn. I was standing behind Dawn too. And like, everyone’s trying not to look, but you just can’t, it’s just such a scene. It’s like a dark room, but it’s lit over there. And she comes in. I, I swear to God it was like that scene in, um, I heard that music from Fast Times at Ridgemont High. When that girl gets out of the pool,

Caleb Beaver (10:34):


Sevan Matossian (10:34):

Have, have we ever played that? We have played that right, Caleb. Mm. Know what I’m talking about? No, I’m not lying. I’m not lying. And I made eye. And then you came over and sat where I sat and you made eye contact with me. And the first thing I thought was, does she know that just like 80% of the dudes in here just had their brain scramble for a second?

Caleb Beaver (10:51):


Sevan Matossian (10:54):

Oh, it was crazy. I love moments like that. Don looked good, didn’t he? He, he, he’s, he’s the part I’m just regular. Extremely regular. I know. Me too. It’s normal. Just a normal hairy dude.

Caleb Beaver (11:12):


Sevan Matossian (11:12):

Just a dude. Yeah. Phoebe. K It’s her, it was, I’m telling you it was like that. Maybe Caleb will pull it up. I I it would’ve been awesome. It should be a scene in a movie. Here we go. It was like this. That was me. That was me watching. But we don’t get the audio. Oh, got just a little bit here.

Caleb Beaver (11:31):


Sevan Matossian (11:33):

Yeah, it was like this. I heard that music when Alison walked in. Hi

Caleb Beaver (11:41):


Sevan Matossian (11:42):

I didn’t hear that. Hi, Savon. No,

Caleb Beaver (11:45):

I God <laugh>.

Sevan Matossian (11:47):

I didn’t make it that far. I was too busy watching to see if Don how much, if who was staring more? Me or Don? You’re Caleb coming in with the voices. That’s great.

Caleb Beaver (11:59):


Mattew Souza (12:00):

You’re talking about Don playing the part. He is, uh, he is great. Like when you get around him, he makes you feel like you’re kind of the only person there a little bit. You know, bill Clinton, and, and, and in every uh, every time I see him, he always makes a, like, you know, we have him passing. He always jumps out and says, hi Matt, great to see you. And puts his hands out, hand out. Put his hands out. And, uh, he did that at the, uh, the affiliate gathering too, which was like, I could raise my hand to answer a question now. And he’s calling on questions. You asked. I have my

Sevan Matossian (12:31):

Aggressive question. You asked a pretty aggressive question.

Mattew Souza (12:33):

Well, it got tamed right away because when he goes to call me, he goes, yeah. Oh, Matt, how you doing? Oh, you know, in front of the whole entire room. And so then all of a sudden you’re like, oh, hey Don. Yeah. What’s your question? I forgot.

Sevan Matossian (12:46):

He’s a heart draw. He’s a fucking heart draw. He for sure is. Yeah. Oh God. His wife is, he must be stoked. Um, and, uh, well, he, and he sat there and Greg went through the whole N S C A case to, as an example of, um, uh,

Mattew Souza (12:59):


Sevan Matossian (13:00):

Scientific misconduct. Yeah, it was, it was, it was pretty amazing. And, and I, Hillary interviewed Don, I’m, I’m sure Hillary’s gonna show it. Hillary had his, um, GoPro there all fancy set up and shit.

Mattew Souza (13:13):

Yeah. He had his Veritas projects came up.

Sevan Matossian (13:16):

Yes. Thank you.

Mattew Souza (13:16):

You never know if it’s fucking recording or not.

Sevan Matossian (13:19):

<laugh>, what happened to James O’Keefe? Is he back yet? Have they reported? Is anything going on with him?

Mattew Souza (13:24):

No idea.

Caleb Beaver (13:25):


Sevan Matossian (13:27):

Um, uh, who’s, who’s Alison talking to? Hi. Uh, uh, did, did we ha hug and introduce ourselves? Oh, that must not be me. I hugged you four times. What are you talking about

Mattew Souza (13:43):

<laugh>? Every time we enter to the room

Sevan Matossian (13:44):

Trying to get Yeah. No, there’s Alison, you go

Mattew Souza (13:46):

Hug girl. Was my hug at

Sevan Matossian (13:49):

<laugh>. Sorry. I have dementia. I forgot. Uh, I’m te you, you can’t, they don’t, they, it’s not like that. You can’t get, it’s not like it’s, you can’t go near her. It’s too much overwhelm. You can’t, it’s, it’s, um, she’s cool as shit and she’s easy as shit. But, but it’s a, um, it’s a scene. Like you’re not, you’re not just walking up to her. Like you better have, like, unless you’re bringing a sandwich or a drink or something.

Caleb Beaver (14:15):


Sevan Matossian (14:16):

And she doesn’t drink either or nothing. She’s just chill. And she got mom vibes, like all the girls like her over there talking to her and shit. That, that’s when it would be cool to be a trany <laugh>. Does she feel comfortable going over and talking to Alice?

Mattew Souza (14:33):

Oh, you headed to the women’s bathroom so much?

Sevan Matossian (14:35):

Yeah. Yeah. Let’s go. Uh, for those who don’t like the video, having 30 million views, ask yourself why does Project Veritas even have a mission? If YouTube, uh, weren’t taking down, or videos and large multinational CORs weren’t telling journalists not to cover up stories, there wouldn’t be a need for people like me. But, um, this was two weeks ago. Like people, so people are coming out saying like, he was, he’s mean. And like, he won’t take pictures with people and he took a sandwich from a pregnant lady.

Mattew Souza (15:00):

Better than a gun to the

Sevan Matossian (15:01):

Stomach. It’s fucking crazy. Right? Those are the allegations he called someone at work. A pussy

Mattew Souza (15:07):


Sevan Matossian (15:08):

I remember, I’ve told the story many times. I remember when Dave called the fucking people who paid a thousand bucks to go to a level one pussies, <laugh>. Uh, they gimme your a thousand bucks and you guys are pussies.

Mattew Souza (15:19):

<laugh>. Thank you for the abuse, Dave. And, uh, we’ll see ourselves out. Yeah.

Sevan Matossian (15:27):

Uh, I don’t know if you guys saw, but um, also at, uh, 23.1, uh, simultaneously they ran a, um, an event. It’s 4 54 Caleb, uh, this guy, uh, ran a, um, well he thought he ran a 3 47 mile. Um, and, uh, this was, this was, this was across, would also put this on as, as kind of like a sideshow, you know, cuz like we, we appreciate other, like, events and shit. And here he is. This is just like in the room right next to where Laura and um, Gabby were going. And this guy, you know, second fastest mile and, and the history of the world, I think. Yeah, exactly that. Yep. Thank you Paulina for fucking up my joke. You’re a good dude. Uh, <laugh>, you saw that coming <laugh>. Uh, and unfortunately, uh, CrossFit won’t put him on a 300, uh, meter track. <laugh> and uh,

Mattew Souza (16:23):

God damn it. Oh my gosh. Well, why’d you pop the com? You could <laugh>.

Sevan Matossian (16:29):

I got an idiot cause I drank too much last night. Cause I’m sick. I didn’t sleep so good. My nose is closed. Yeah. Yeah, that track. I think that track was a, I thought I was running a sub, uh, sub one minute 400 s and I think it was a 333 meter track or something. This is pretty crazy.

Speaker 4 (16:48):

Oh my gosh. You might

Sevan Matossian (16:51):

Get it. And so here, here’s the thing. Here’s the thing when I thought this, so for anyone who’s like, oh, it’s no big deal. It’s no big deal. Like this guy is impressive. It’s, it’s great. His 13,000 followers, blah, blah, whatever, metrics of popularity. But it would be so savage if he found out that track wasn’t the right length. And you know what? Maybe that track isn’t the right length. I don’t know if someone went out and measured it afterwards, but it, but, but I just think it’s funny that if it was a CrossFit event, it would’ve been 394 meters. Not quite. Buddy. Look how close second place is. I mean, that people were jammed.

Mattew Souza (17:33):

Yeah. Third, fourth. Like, they’re all right behind.

Sevan Matossian (17:35):

Isn’t it weird that like if you had to like then run a lap app, like what this dude right now is he win his fifth lap, he’d still beat you.

Caleb Beaver (17:43):


Sevan Matossian (17:44):

Yeah. Like fresh. Oh yeah. Like you’re fresh, but he’s not, he just ran a 3 47 and then you’re like, okay, I’m ready. I’ll fucking get him on this fifth lap. <laugh>. No you’re not.

Caleb Beaver (17:54):

You even get like a 20 yard head start and he still beats you.

Sevan Matossian (17:57):

Probably. He’s going to. Yeah. So that’s cool. 3 47, I think it’s the fastest American mile. That’s is, that’s pain cave shit, right? I mean, I’m so confused about what I think I know about fitness now that someone told us that elite athletes don’t get metabolic fatigue. They get muscle fatigue when doing max burpees. I, I can’t even, that fucked me all up. That flipped a script on me because I, I can’t even think. I can’t even, uh, why, uh, why are the woke not canceling Don for supporting Greg? I mean, Greg got canceled. So why aren’t those supporting him doing the same asking him for the woke? That’s a good question. <laugh>

Caleb Beaver (18:43):

Does. The woke don’t care anymore. They moved on to the next thing.

Sevan Matossian (18:46):

Hey, they should protest the hotel. They should protest the hotel. But anywhere Greg goes, they should protest it. God, it was such a good event. You, you, you, you’re smarter for going to it. It was like just free IQ points.

Mattew Souza (18:58):

Yeah, for sure.

Sevan Matossian (19:02):

Just, yeah.

Mattew Souza (19:03):

So Malcolm was your favorite speaker?

Sevan Matossian (19:05):

Uh, they were all good. Malcolm, I guess it was proximity by his two. He was the last speaker. And I felt sorry for him because being the last speaker’s hard Oh, did switch orders.

Mattew Souza (19:14):

Yeah. I think they either loaded the slide rod or there was something, but, um, but, uh, uh, Steve Fried was supposed to be the last, the last one.

Sevan Matossian (19:23):

Did you see the text? I started thread, I started this morning.

Mattew Souza (19:27):


Sevan Matossian (19:28):

I put you in the, in the film crew on it. The irony, there was some crazy irony there yesterday. The whole, one of the, one of the foundations of what you learned, learned from the talk is like, hey, just cuz someone says they’re an expert or a professional, like, don’t believe that. Like, the people who are like Dave Casser doesn’t act professional. Like those people are fucking idiots. If, if someone broke into their house, would you want, uh, Dave the professional there? Or would you want fucking Rose the professional there? Like, shut the fuck up. He’s as professional as they fucking get when, when it’s all in the line that motherfucker’s professional. Oh no, I like the guy with the tie

Mattew Souza (20:02):


Sevan Matossian (20:03):

Well, I’ll take the guy with integrity jerk on. Uh, and um, and, and, and that’s what you see. Just, um, there were just, every speaker had an example where as soon as you see expert, I mean, whether they meant to or not, as soon as you see expert or a professional or I’m from LA mm-hmm. <affirmative>, um, uh, you should be, uh, you should be wary.

Mattew Souza (20:28):

I I like to Did you catch the line that Emily said when she said, uh, I could, I could come up here and talk about their academic accomplishments or the letters they have in front of their name, but yeah, that’s, that’s not what we’re, that that doesn’t mean anything. We’ll let you listen to their talks and determine for yourself. That was fantastic. Hey, because any place they would’ve went, they would’ve, they would’ve talked about all their academic, uh, uh, academic accomplishments before they came out. You know,

Sevan Matossian (20:54):

Some, some jerk off wrote in the comments, uh, on YouTube I saw this morning, he’s like, uh, isn’t it ironic that Emily says you can’t get injured from CrossFit and yet she was injured doing wall balls. You, you know, it’s, it’s so crazy. You could make anything true with idiots like that. It’s, I go back to the raining thing. If I told you, uh, it’s gonna rain today, and you’re like, dude, it’s sunny. I’m like, well, somewhere on the planet. And you’re like, that has no value to you. Yeah. O okay, thanks Savan. Well that you’re welcome. I’m a world class climatologist. I it’s gonna rain tomorrow somewhere on the planet too. Incredible. Uh, that’s what I feel like. Like dude, if you fucking get hurt because you don’t catch a wall ball and it hits you in the face, that wasn’t CrossFit that did that to you

Mattew Souza (21:36):


Sevan Matossian (21:36):

That was

Mattew Souza (21:36):


Sevan Matossian (21:36):

Catch David. Yeah. You have to contextualize and put it into relativity. And uh, there there’s, there’s, there’s a, there’s some sort of risk assessment component where you contextualize and put things into relativity. I need to know where it’s raining and at what time for it to be useful to me.

Mattew Souza (21:57):

One thing that Don mentioned at the affiliate gathering when I was there is he said, you know, cuz they have the risk retention group with that ensures a lot of the CrossFit gyms and a couple other insurance companies that CrossFit HQ has relationships with. And he says, and yeah, we’re in the process of collecting all the data to prove that, hey, if this is so harmful, then, you know, as globally as everybody does it and are insured by these companies, where’s all the, where’s all the claims? Where is all the injuries then? I mean, you could make the arguments.

Sevan Matossian (22:25):

Greg did that. Greg did that. I reme he would, he he shared that data at a lot of meetings. I remember where there would be affiliates. He, he, I think he said one time like, and um, like one of the biggest like expenses for the CrossFit risk retention group was like, dogs biting people <laugh>. You know what I mean? Like people I would believe it. Cause people get their dogs to work shit. Yeah, yeah,

Mattew Souza (22:46):

Yeah. The uh, the, I ironic think about it too is if you take like, like, let’s just say like 35 to to to 45 and you said what’s, what’s the biggest risk of the gym? It’s fricking games of pick up basketball. Acls are blowing and, and issues happen there. And if you go from 55 to 75 and you go, what’s the biggest risk of injury as they are active? It’s golf in their low backs.

Sevan Matossian (23:08):

Oh, oh, oh.

Mattew Souza (23:09):

So you, I mean, like you said, you could, you could make that assumption with anything and you’ll

Sevan Matossian (23:14):

Find it golf, golf is way more dangerous than CrossFit in so many ways. Just doing that one movement as hard as you can. If I swung the golf, uh, uh, that stick that they use, whatever that thing’s called, if I swung that as hard as I could, I’d fucking die. I’m so fucking strong. I would swing that thing and rip my tors off my legs.

Mattew Souza (23:32):

You think your back’s fucked up now?

Sevan Matossian (23:34):

Yeah, that’s right. I said it Colton. That’s how fucking strong I am. Take that clip. Uh, what, uh, Allison said something cool in here. Uh, that second guy convinced me even more than Chevon to never touch sugar again. Amen. Do Siegfried, I gotta have him on the show cuz he, you can’t read his fucking book unless you’re

Caleb Beaver (23:56):

A genius.

Sevan Matossian (23:58):

I don’t know what the word is. I don’t, I don’t know. I don’t know what the word is.

Mattew Souza (24:01):

I mean, I think you just have to be familiar with some of the, the, the underlying concepts before you get into kind of the nitty gritty of it. Because if you’re not kind of understanding where they’re all already coming from, then it’s tough to place all of that somewhere. If that, I don’t know if that even made sense.

Sevan Matossian (24:17):

Yeah, well to me it did. Cuz I, I need to some excuse to not understand ’em without saying I’m an idiot.

Caleb Beaver (24:22):

So like, if I know, if I don’t know programming, I’m not gonna, like, it’d be difficult for me to look at a program and try to rewrite it.

Sevan Matossian (24:30):

Yeah. If I don’t know what Olympic lifting is, I’d do 30 snatches and then do some hang snatches and then warm up with some overhead squats. What? And that was the one of CrossFit for me.

Mattew Souza (24:40):


Sevan Matossian (24:41):

Yeah. He was from New York. No bullshit. Yeah. Or Boston. Yeah. Everyone there’s kind of gangster. That’s the thing to be in that circle. Everyone there has a bit of, a little bit of thug in him. Like the, like you wanna step outside <laugh>, everyone’s got a little bit of fuck you. How about that one guy, Malcolm Kendrick has been pulled off of Wikipedia.

Mattew Souza (24:59):


Sevan Matossian (25:00):

That’s <laugh>. Can you imagine? There’s a fucking mind conf There’s Hitler’s on there. Osama bin Laden’s on there. This dude’s pointing at like, uh, like don’t eat. Uh, this guy’s like talking about not eating carbs and about, um, replication crisis and, and issues and academic science. And he, and they fucking pulled down his wiki page. It’s like gustapo shit. Like re like what? There was nothing in there. Like killed the Jews. Oh, let’s round up all the black people and killed them. Love Malcolm We hundred. No, there was nothing like that.

Mattew Souza (25:33):

Hey, did you see the, uh,

Sevan Matossian (25:34):

He’s telling you how to eat his thoughts on eating. Meanwhile there’s, but there I betcha. Fruit Loops has its own Wiki page.

Caleb Beaver (25:40):

His page is back up by the way.

Sevan Matossian (25:42):

Oh it is? Yeah. Oh, does it have it, does it have a warning? Will that, oh wait, he told me. Just kidding.

Caleb Beaver (25:46):

No, no,

Sevan Matossian (25:46):

No. Oh, it was, could have told me that like 40 seconds earlier.

Caleb Beaver (25:49):

It’s rational Wiki. Well, I, it takes me time to look this stuff up.

Sevan Matossian (25:53):

<laugh>. It’s, oh, uh, Caleb’s goal is just to fact check me and prove me wrong on the one every time.

Mattew Souza (25:58):

<laugh> only right after you make a claim though, make a claim chalk you out.

Sevan Matossian (26:02):
