Sevan Matossian (00:00):
And so I’m like, oh, I invited you and you said No, but I even told him, I was like, Hey, that’s awesome. I still get credit, right? You know what I mean? Bam. We’re live. Hey, what were you going to say? Hiller?
Andrew Hiller (00:11):
I only owe him to say anything. I was just looking cards behind black and head,
Sevan Matossian (00:16):
Dude. Crazy. I
Didn’t realize the cards were that big. Yeah,
Tyler Watkins (00:22):
They come stock like that.
Sevan Matossian (00:24):
What’s crazy is I think you showed us those last week and the big ones, and when I saw them, I didn’t even know that they were big. I was like, God, those look awfully big. Is that, what am I looking at? I should have inquired.
Tyler Watkins (00:36):
I know there was nothing in the picture for reference, and after I sent it, I was like, maybe they’ll figure it out. I don’t really care.
I remember thinking it was either a small table like Reall Desk or Massive Cards.
Sevan Matossian (00:49):
Hiller, did you get your Instagram account back?
Andrew Hiller (00:52):
Sevan Matossian (00:53):
Crazy. And so basically someone reported you for not having a business account when you, that’s what
Andrew Hiller (01:00):
It looks like, but then when you click on the button, it says everything about community guidelines and it legit says bullying in three separate versions of what could have gone wrong.
Well, I was told with someone that in order for that to be an instantaneous thing and not like a we’ll investigate you’ve been reported kind of thing. You need 20 plus people simultaneously within a half an hour reporting it. So Right.
Andrew Hiller (01:31):
Who do you think has 20 plus people who are willing to report an account?
I don’t know, man. I mean, if I had that kind of intelligence, I’d be saying aloha to how clever I was.
Sevan Matossian (01:42):
Andrew Filler, Andrew Filler, Andrew Hiller from Hiller, fitt, Hiller fitt, YouTube no longer Hiller fitt Instagram for me. Oh my God. Hey guys. Eventually it comes out. Who does that stuff and it’s so bad for you to attack people’s livelihood, do some other shit, don’t attack people’s livelihood. Eventually it comes out, it’s going to look so fucking bad. It will be prime
Andrew Hiller (02:09):
Last month on Instagram 33,
Sevan Matossian (02:10):
I made what?
Andrew Hiller (02:11):
I made $33 last month on Instagram and that was just taken from me. I’m kind of pissed.
Sevan Matossian (02:16):
I don’t mean in terms of the money, but I just mean in terms of the fact that it’s your reach. Right? So I lost mine. I had a hundred thousand followers. I didn’t, someone’s going to correct me. No you didn’t. You had 91,000 or whatever. Most of were male,
70,000 if you paid for them.
Sevan Matossian (02:33):
Most of them were males in India. But still, it’s just stupid to do that to people. But the YouTube station is absolutely murdering it over there at Hiller Fit. His numbers have doubled since last year, if not more. I remember when we used to joke around, can you imagine if you got 10,000 views on every video and now it’s like
That video yesterday. That was one of the best experiences I’ve had watching anything that someone made that was from start to finish, from start to finish. That was just, it was just perfect. I laughed even though I knew what was happening, even though, even though I had seen it, I laughed so many times as hard if not harder as when I was watching it live and the little things that often go unnoticed. There was a lot of really fucking obvious stuff in it. But the little bits that often go unnoticed, I just howled laughing at the part of me wanting
Sevan Matossian (03:35):
You mean the most humble man in CrossFit video? Yeah.
Yeah. Okay. Part of me wanted you picture in picture part of me wanted, wanted to see you watch it and respond in time, but then I also appreciated the cutaways and the like what it was. Oh, it’s just magnificent.
Andrew Hiller (03:52):
I legitimately turned into an owl. When I say who sometimes
I’ve watched it four times and I watched it for the first time this morning when I got up.
Andrew Hiller (04:02):
That’s two hours of that dude’s a lot.
It’s very good.
Andrew Hiller (04:05):
Well, thank you. I appreciate it.
Sevan Matossian (04:07):
Have you received any negative feedback on it?
Andrew Hiller (04:10):
Isn’t that crazy? It’s got almost 400 comments on it and not one of ’em is negative at me.
Sevan Matossian (04:17):
I wonder how he’s processing that. If there’s any part of it he’s enjoying or if it’s just all just like, fuck.
Andrew Hiller (04:24):
The thing is, I wouldn’t have done it. He had not had to talk about me on your show. Man.
Sevan Matossian (04:29):
Andrew Hiller (04:30):
Man. That’s not like Steve.
Sevan Matossian (04:32):
If it had been brought up, even if it had fucking hell, even if it had been put to him, but the fact that it was instigated, do you know what I mean? That made it worse as well. The fact that it wasn’t like Savanna was like, Hey, what are your thoughts? He brought it up because he wanted to talk about it because he jumped in the pool.
Sevan Matossian (04:54):
Yeah, I didn’t have on my question list. So what do you think about Andrew Hiller?
Andrew Hiller (05:01):
It’s like Aristotle’s walking around and then all of a sudden, wait a minute, I had to talk about this guy. That’s how I felt. Oh
Sevan Matossian (05:07):
Andrew Hiller (05:08):
It was out of freaking thin air. He went
Sevan Matossian (05:10):
From Aristotle to T M Z
Andrew Hiller (05:12):
Sevan Matossian (05:18):
Chris Gilles, whoever reported Hiller’s a bitch. Well, yeah, that’s for sure. Carina Rain. Thank you. Hey, what’s up? What’s up? Picture?
Andrew Hiller (05:26):
That’s her house in the background.
Sevan Matossian (05:29):
Sevan Matossian (05:30):
Though, Katie. That’s church. Church. Because the rest of us have real monitors. We’re not on a 13 inch MacBook Pro or whatever. You got
Don’t do not start mocking the fucking laptop.
Sevan Matossian (05:43):
Andrew Hiller (05:43):
One that he made you buy.
Sevan Matossian (05:46):
My goodness. Don’t know screens. Now we don’t know what happened to Andrew’s Instagram, but we’re speculating.
Andrew Hiller (05:56):
Sevan Matossian (05:58):
Okay, go ahead. Sorry. Go ahead. Say it.
Andrew Hiller (06:01):
Someone said some stuff there. It’s Can you see that? Oh
Sevan Matossian (06:04):
No, no. Tell me. Read it to me. Read it to me.
Andrew Hiller (06:07):
It just says we’re reviewing your info.
Sevan Matossian (06:09):
Andrew Hiller (06:11):
I don’t know. There’s no way that it wouldn’t know who I am considering. I have that blue check mark and they need your driver’s license for it so they know who I am.
Sevan Matossian (06:21):
Oh, what do you mean? It’s a verified account, meaning,
Andrew Hiller (06:25):
Right? Yeah, it’s been verified.
Sevan Matossian (06:29):
Alright. It’s downtown Miami. Oh, I thought Corina. I actually thought it was in front of a church or something. God, you got great hair. Alright, now mock him into getting a four K monitor. Slowly, slowly, slowly. I’m going to send you a four K monitor. I’m going to send you a 32 inch monitor. Yeah, yeah. Hey, does your computer have U S B C? Look up if your computer can power a monitor. I think we’re going to switch these shows to four o’clock, so Pedro only has to stay up till midnight. I’ll take that over a monitor. Okay. This is going to be a very short, short, short, short, short, short, short. The shortest show CrossFit Games update show yet. Just so you guys know, Scott Pancheck will be coming on in 23 minutes. Sorry, take two. Saxon Pancheck will be coming on in 22 minutes.
I’m very curious what’s going on over at Proven. I did see, oh, before we talk about proven, I do want to talk about that. I watched there, it said they put out a video yesterday or a couple days ago or 19 hours ago that basically says the athletes are rolling back in and training has started. I only recognize one of them, Taylor Williamson. But before we get to that, I want to show you something. I have no proof of this, but we have the expert Andrew Hiller in the house and I want to show you this video of this guy. This is 170 kilograms. This is not fair. What I’m about to say about this guy. So I apologize to Igor Clem team for saying this in advance
Andrew Hiller (08:02):
For a minute. Pardon me?
Sevan Matossian (08:04):
Is this proven? No, this is not proven. Sorry. Sorry
Andrew Hiller (08:09):
Dude. Holy hell.
Sevan Matossian (08:11):
I think that these kind of behaviors that we’re witnessing are indicative of steroid use. I know there’s no, I know. It’s just completely Look it. Look it. This is the kind of crazy shit you do if you’re juiced up.
Andrew Hiller (08:27):
I never did this, but I called
Sevan Matossian (08:30):
Something, I don’t know, is there a translation button? But I saw this and I’m like, okay, you probably got to be, this is the kind of place your brain goes when you get juiced up, getting our muscles toned after the week and reminder, soon there will be information on our competitions with nonstandard lifts. Oh, that’s a nonstandard lift.
Andrew Hiller (08:49):
It’s definitely not standard. That’s amazing. Should I try it?
Sevan Matossian (08:56):
Please be careful. Hey, his technique is remarkable. I don’t even know what the lift is, but I can tell how elbow it is
That far. Elbow is like what is happening there?
Sevan Matossian (09:06):
Yeah, he’s a brain surgeon. There’s something technical he’s doing that’s crazy. Just
Andrew Hiller (09:10):
Realize that he’s turning the bar. That’s what he is doing. I thought he was wiggling, but he’s turning the bar. It’s rolling up hiss back.
Sevan Matossian (09:17):
So let me ask you is
Andrew Hiller (09:21):
Sevan Matossian (09:22):
I already know where you’re going. He’s clean. Okay. Alright, fine. All right, cool. So that’s just dumb. That’s just dumb.
Andrew Hiller (09:27):
I don’t think that dude’s clean.
Sevan Matossian (09:29):
But what do you think? Do you, when you start seeing guys do weird shit like that, that could be
They didn’t have anywhere else to go. They’re just
Sevan Matossian (09:36):
Like, it’s just a correlate for too much testosterone.
Andrew Hiller (09:40):
No. Okay. But I like it.
Sevan Matossian (09:43):
Okay, alright. I like it. There’s no truth to it. But you like my thinking?
Andrew Hiller (09:46):
I do. Yeah. I’m willing to go with it. So next time I see something I’ll just ask him, Hey, are you on?
Sevan Matossian (09:52):
Okay, fair enough. Okay. Proven athletes rolling back in. There was a guy named Will, I think it was a young lady named Jordan. I couldn’t tell exactly. And then someone named Brandon. I didn’t know any of them. The great Taylor Williamson from Mayhem Team Fame was also back at the proven.
Andrew Hiller (10:12):
She’s kind of bound to go back though, right?
Sevan Matossian (10:15):
Andrew Hiller (10:16):
Sevan Matossian (10:18):
Say that again?
Andrew Hiller (10:19):
She’s married to Nick Johnston. Right,
Sevan Matossian (10:22):
And that’s the coach?
Andrew Hiller (10:23):
Yeah. So she’s like,
Sevan Matossian (10:25):
Or he has to go back because she goes there.
He’s the c e O
Andrew Hiller (10:30):
Of c e o dude.
Sevan Matossian (10:32):
Oh, okay. So much for that. So the c e o Trumps I should have known better Top athlete. So they’re saying that athletes are rolling back in. I did not recognize any of them. And on top of that, in the video, it sounds like Taylor Williamson is not even going to be competing. It sounds like to me that she’s retired.
That’s how off the back of last year. That’s what I thought was happening.
Andrew Hiller (10:57):
She wants to work
Like a job. I don’t mean she wasn’t working before. Sorry. Tyler’s
Sevan Matossian (11:04):
Andrew Hiller (11:06):
She alluded to that for about the past year, year and a half.
Sevan Matossian (11:11):
And the other person I saw working out there was a guy named Will and he was a coach
Sevan Matossian (11:18):
So it’s a bit of a misnomer to say that the athletes’ a rolling back in because one of the guys is a coach. One of them is someone who’s retired and the other two I’d never heard of
Will Carney was that semifinals tour and he just missed out on the games last year. Oh,
Sevan Matossian (11:30):
Andrew Hiller (11:32):
Is it supposed to be on Zach George’s team or no, someone else? No, no. Nevermind. Okay. If you’d know that’s from your side of the ocean.
No, it’s the far side of my side of the ocean. Will Carney’s Australia. He’s a tour
Andrew Hiller (11:47):
Sevan Matossian (11:49):
Both islands. Both islands. And then also in the, they said that they were going to, there’s going to be some Waterloo qualifier testing going on at the camp there. So that means some people there are probably going to try to go to Water Palooza and they have to do the qualifier and then I think he said Rogue Prep. Is there anyone in the proven camp that’s doing, is there anyone in the camp that was going rogue?
Crouch Jake? Well, he’s not there, but
Andrew Hiller (12:17):
A better question would be, is there anyone left in the Peruvian camp?
Sevan Matossian (12:20):
Well, that’s what we’re going to find out. I guess when Saxon comes, we’re going to find out at least where he is.
Andrew Hiller (12:27):
He jumps on the show. Hey, is there anyone left over there?
Sevan Matossian (12:31):
I also watched the Justin made video. Justin Maderis coming back and it’s his first video, it his first week of training. It’s him and Ellie and a couple other people I didn’t recognize. Justin looks serious as a heart attack. Look cleaned up, looks a little older, looks mature looks, I don’t know, I think I’m going to put him as number one again. You are so phaco. I’m putting him up as number one. Again, I’m telling you just from watching this one video, him and Travis Mayer, both Travis Mayer, top five and Justin Maderis. Top one game changer. Top voice. Yeah, he’s going to win.
Andrew Hiller (13:22):
So what does it for you? The hair. His
Sevan Matossian (13:24):
Hair looks pretty. Everything on it? He’s
Andrew Hiller (13:26):
Sevan Matossian (13:26):
Looks good. Did you guys watch the video? He’s calmer. He looks good. His face looks more mature, his hair looked better. His movements look good. Ellie looked calm. Ellie’s like a real adult when she talks
Andrew Hiller (13:41):
As opposed to she,
Sevan Matossian (13:43):
They’re not always
Andrew Hiller (13:44):
Sevan Matossian (13:45):
I want to be like, Hey, it’s two goofball kids who work really hard, but they shouldn’t have got together. That’s kind of the camp I started in. What are they doing? They’re going to be a distraction for each other. And then after seeing this video, I recalibrated. I’m like, wait a minute. These are two mature, seasoned athletes that are going for it. Look at you Heather.
They’re dancing with a dog on Justin Ellis story. Just to undercut what you’re saying
Sevan Matossian (14:10):
Slightly. Oh fuck. Thank you, Pedro.
Andrew Hiller (14:14):
Oh yeah, his hair does look good. It does.
Sevan Matossian (14:16):
Andrew Hiller (14:19):
That’s what I want to say. I just want to see his hair. It looks great. I got short. It’s top 10 hair right there.
Sevan Matossian (14:26):
Yeah, there’s a calmness to him. A calmness to Ellie. He just seems comfortable. What is Ellie? Ellie mentioned that she’s going to
Andrew Hiller (14:38):
Said right there.
Sevan Matossian (14:39):
Andrew Hiller (14:39):
Sevan Matossian (14:42):
One more time.
Andrew Hiller (14:43):
You said the word comfortable.
Sevan Matossian (14:45):
Andrew Hiller (14:46):
You said he looks comfortable. Comfortable. That’s not a good thing.
Sevan Matossian (14:50):
Comfortable in his own skin.
You also have to consider the fact that say where they’re there now, that facility didn’t exist. They’ve built that. They’ve moved. All the change has already happened. So there is that element as well that all of the upset, all of the imbalances or whatever. Okay, fuck it. I’m kind of moving over to Savannah’s side and being like, yeah, maybe he’s right because now things are settled. Now things, there is no more change. Now everything’s kind of done that it’s like they can focus on what they need to focus on apart from the dog.
Sevan Matossian (15:24):
Let me give you some other data points. He’s entering a, on December 16th, Justin’s entering a power lifting meet.
Andrew Hiller (15:34):
Sevan Matossian (15:35):
Yeah. And you know what that tells me? He don’t give a fuck. He’s confident. He doesn’t care. What if he wins or loses? Oh, go ahead Tyler. What? You don’t like it?
Tyler Watkins (15:44):
Finish your thought.
Sevan Matossian (15:46):
It just makes me think that he knows he’s the best at what he does in the world and he’s going over there humbly to enter his hat. He knows he probably has no chance of winning, but he’s still going to do it and I just like it shows out of his comfort zone. It’s the kind of things that you might hear like a Micko Selo or Matt Fraser do.
Tyler Watkins (16:06):
Hillary, you’re a coach. You got an athlete who’s worn out. What do you have him do?
Andrew Hiller (16:12):
Probably a power lifting competition.
Sevan Matossian (16:15):
Oh no, really? You’re saying
Tyler Watkins (16:19):
It’s fun. It’s something different. It’s fun. He likes lifting lifting’s not nearly as stressful. He can go. It’s not his environment in which he takes over. It’s just I’m going to go and compete and do something I don’t normally do. It’s still competitive, but it’s fun. And so
He also turned down rogue, didn’t he?
Andrew Hiller (16:40):
Just to be clear. Are you saying it’s a good thing or a bad thing?
Tyler Watkins (16:42):
It’s a bad thing. Okay. Yeah. Yes.
Andrew Hiller (16:46):
Fun to be a good thing. He’s overworked, so this is fun. So it’s stress relieving, but which one is it?
Tyler Watkins (16:52):
To me, it signals something to watch. Either he’s so stressed out that he needs to take that time. He needs to go have fun versus I’m tuned in and I don’t need to go have that fun. It could be a good thing in that, Hey bro, take your rest and get rejuvenated, dude, you’re going to be fine. Or it’s, oh shit, we have to totally retract everything we’ve been doing and you need to go Galvan off for a little while.
Do you think that’s the only time we’ll see compete before semifinals?
Tyler Watkins (17:22):
I hope not.
Sevan Matossian (17:24):
So either way you’re saying it’s probably a good thing, but I’m saying that it shows a lot of confidence and that he’s ready to put it on the line and you’re saying no, it might be that’s doing something that’s a little easy and that’s why Hiller threw in. Well, he is not doing rogue, which kind of fits with your narrative, but either way you’re saying it’s probably a good thing to mitigate something, but we’re saying it’s for different reasons.
Tyler Watkins (17:50):
I think it’s something to watch. I don’t think it’s good or bad. It’s just after you’ll be able to tell. I think his next competition, you’ll know
Sevan Matossian (17:59):
Chris Gilles. He’s taking the pressure off and getting his hunger back. Yeah. Yeah. Okay. Okay. Go ahead. Hiller.
Andrew Hiller (18:06):
I like the idea of seeing what his lifts are going to be in a power lift, squat, bench deadlift or what’s the order of that bench squat, deadlift, deadlift, bench squat. It’s all those, I don’t know which one’s lasting first, but it’s going to be cool. And I always thought that these events would be great to have in the CrossFit game system somewhere like a semifinal. The quarterfinals. I mean they have the other total, but a power lifting total would be very cool. So like five minutes to do each lift or something like that.
Sevan Matossian (18:36):
What do you guys think about this? He’s been on the show before and he’s like, yeah, I just ran my mile or something and he prd it or something. He ran a mile and I said, what’s your mile time? And he kind of joked, wouldn’t you like to know? And then we joked throughout the show I think, and I was asking him what his mile time was and he didn’t want to say, and I appreciate that. I don’t blame him. What do you guys think? Yeah, tell me. So now he’s going to go, he’s going to do this bench squat and deadlift or whatever those three movements are and every fucking Tom, Dick and Harry in the world is going to do it right after he does it to be like, okay, I can beat him. Right?
Andrew Hiller (19:08):
I like Ben, him. I think he had to change something. So I think that you like that
Sevan Matossian (19:12):
About Justin that he’s like, fuck you. I don’t care. You could beat my numbers. I’ll still beat you. It doesn’t freak me out.
Andrew Hiller (19:17):
Correct. Yeah. I mean everyone kind of really knows what everyone’s capable of. I mean Brian has almost made a living off of just sitting there knowing what every athlete can do. So you’d imagine that the athletes have those people as well. Especially when it comes to the lifts. If you have to do a lift, you’re at the CrossFit games and you’re vying for a top 10 spot and you kind of know what you have to do based upon the history of the sport. Everyone’s got their numbers everywhere.
Sevan Matossian (19:42):
Wad Zombie says what’s wad.
Andrew Hiller (19:46):
I think it’s cool. In the same way that Frazier reached out for power lifting help at one point in his career because his deadlift sucked and still does
Sevan Matossian (19:59):
Wad zombie. I drove by zombie the creator of the new James spray card, which you can see behind Tyler Watkins there. It says, I drove by his house the other day. It’s beautiful. It looks beautiful. It looks really cool. Andrew Cleary. Thank you brother. Appreciate it. I’m going to make the assumption you’re a boy. Thank you. Harry Peres. He’s entering his influencer years. Oh, the name what? Harry Peres. Oh, this is crazy. Did you write this?
Tyler Watkins (20:31):
Yeah, he was calling me an NSYNC member and I’m a Backstreet Voice member myself.
Sevan Matossian (20:35):
Oh, okay, okay, okay. Gotcha. Okay. For a second. I was like, dude, I always thought that was you and someone’s writing. Thomas Stroud. He got last in the total in 2020, he’s going to get buried. Another loss in isn’t good for his mental health.
Andrew Hiller (20:50):
Hey Thomas, calling it how he sees it.
Sevan Matossian (20:52):
Andrew Hiller (20:53):
Well, 2020. There’s only five dudes there and it also wasn’t the bench price. It was a strict press.
I know it was four years ago or three years ago.
Andrew Hiller (21:02):
I don’t know. Yes.
Sevan Matossian (21:03):
I think if he beats one person there, it’s a win. To be honest with you, he’s going a specialist field. He totals
Andrew Hiller (21:10):
Over 1500. 1500 is like the bare minimum mark for a good power lifter. I feel like. Dude, there’s no way
Sevan Matossian (21:19):
He does. No way.
Andrew Hiller (21:21):
6, 5, 4. He can’t deadlift six. He can’t back squat five. He can’t bench four. He’ll hit a mid fives deadlift like five 50. I’d be shocked if he could bench over 3 35 and then his best squat will be 4 65. 4 75.
Sevan Matossian (21:40):
Pedro, what’s your all time best deadlift
In kilos or pounds?
Sevan Matossian (21:46):
Stone. Fuck all.
Sevan Matossian (21:50):
Does that mean a lot that the bar is
Full? No, I’m not very strong. I’m trying to think.
Sevan Matossian (21:58):
Have you Deadlifted 300?
What’s that? Yeah, that’s like 50 kilos, is it? Yeah, yeah, yeah. I can go over that. Yeah. Well, I dunno about now, but give me five minutes.
Sevan Matossian (22:10):
Andrew Hiller (22:10):
Do Hiter 365 in the tank, right? You can do that.
Sevan Matossian (22:15):
What’s the most you’ve done, Hiller?
Andrew Hiller (22:17):
Sevan Matossian (22:18):
Andrew Hiller (22:20):
Sevan Matossian (22:21):
What’s the most you’ve done, Tyler?
Andrew Hiller (22:22):
Four 20. I have a terrible deadlift.
I think I’ve done 3 74
Andrew Hiller (22:27):
And yes, I did it on purpose.
Sevan Matossian (22:29):
I did what? 3 74, 4 15, 4 20 0, 4 20, oh oh. Well you did 3 74 Pedro,
I think. Yeah, about 170 kilos. That’s about 3 74.
Sevan Matossian (22:42):
I think my best never is three 15.
Andrew Hiller (22:44):
I was going to ask,
Sevan Matossian (22:45):
Which is 300 pounds less than hill’s.
Andrew Hiller (22:50):
That’s cool. When I was at your place. That
Sevan Matossian (22:53):
Is not cool. That’s not cool. If you’re me,
Andrew Hiller (22:54):
I wanted you to pull 300 pounds and you wouldn’t do it. You’re terrified of it.
Sevan Matossian (22:58):
I’m terrified of it. Geez. Louise Rambler 4 45. Oh my God. I love the honesty 3 74 because that’s supposed to be a shit lift.
Sevan Matossian (23:09):
Shit lift. I was so proud. I was so proud of my,
Andrew Hiller (23:15):
That dude moved up on his back.
Sevan Matossian (23:18):
Say that again.
Andrew Hiller (23:19):
3 74. One 70 kilo.
Andrew Hiller (23:22):
Same number. That guy shimmied up his spine.
I lifted it up to his asshole and he did the rest.
Sevan Matossian (23:31):
I think I also did it in a workout and I did. I ended up doing 10 of them. I did seven and three or something. Something weird like that. My max, I did for seven reps, which is kind of weird.
Andrew Hiller (23:42):
87. How fast are you? I told you I’m the assault runner. How fast do you think that thing could get up to Watts?
Sevan Matossian (23:49):
Oh, I don’t know.
Andrew Hiller (23:51):
I’m challenging you. I want to know,
Sevan Matossian (23:53):
Okay, for how long? Just see how fast I could run on it.
Andrew Hiller (23:57):
You go? Yeah.
Sevan Matossian (23:58):
Okay. I’ll put a camera on it so I don’t even have to look at it.
Tyler Watkins (24:02):
We all have to start doing these challenges and mixing them together. By the way, the baseball throw the frigging going outside and running as fast as we can.
Sevan Matossian (24:10):
I was so proud of my baseball throw
Hitting the guard in the head with a Frisbee. All that shit,
Andrew Hiller (24:15):
Sevan Matossian (24:16):
Enola. Kai made a post recently saying that was he going to make it into Rogue? My stats are 500 deadlift, 500 squat 500, right?
Andrew Hiller (24:29):
What’s going on here? That’s your background. That’s
Tyler Watkins (24:36):
His face. But it’s edited into a female.
Sevan Matossian (24:40):
That’s what I look like when I shave.
Yeah, when the hair is
Sevan Matossian (24:44):
Down. That’s I’m telling you. I’ve told you guys a million times. I walked by the window or the mirror the other day with my man bun and I thought I looked like a fucking woman. I was like, wow. As I get old, that happens
In aka. Is there any other names? I have never just said his first name. Never. Or just his? I always say the whole name. Every time I say his name, I feel like if I met him I’d say Hello and Akai. How are you and Akai? I just can’t separate it.
Tyler Watkins (25:10):
Some people are like that. I have a buddy whose name is Mike Brown and I’ve never called him anything but Mike Brown, but every time I see him, Hey my friend,
Sevan Matossian (25:24):
So this is his post. I took on the Rogue Invitational qualifiers with two aims to stay true to myself during the workouts and to earn a spot among the elite at the competition. I felt in control during the qualifiers, pushing my limits while balancing mind, body and spirit ending tied in the sixth position. I awaited the outcome of video review with confidence for those unfamiliar. This process requires a thorough display of movement standards. However, I would sit with a significant penalty during my third workout due to clear oversight on the final lunge. Oh yeah. I wanted to show you guys this. Have you guys seen this?
Andrew Hiller (25:56):
Sevan Matossian (25:58):
This is fucking tough, dude. This is a fucking hard way not to make it to rogue. Look at this. So tell me what happens here.
He doesn’t stand up.
Andrew Hiller (26:07):
He didn’t stand up all the way. Just
Sevan Matossian (26:09):
Just that last one yet. But
Sevan Matossian (26:12):
He just there now. See his right leg.
Andrew Hiller (26:17):
No hips are not.
It’s the rule, but it’s so harsh.
Sevan Matossian (26:23):
It’s the rule. Oh my god, dude.
It is the rule, but it’s just harsh on him. It’s a hard pill to swallow. But he took a champ in fairness.
Sevan Matossian (26:29):
Oh my god.
You know there where he says, I waited my video review confidence. That’s where the Morgan Freeman voiceover comes in saying he should not have been confident.
Sevan Matossian (26:40):
Dude, that’s brutal, dude. I’m not saying that Rogue did anything wrong, but that’s brutal.
Harsh but fair.
Sevan Matossian (26:48):
Andrew Hiller (26:49):
He tried to send me that, but for some reason I just kept on getting pictures of it and then I went to go check my Instagram and I can’t fucking get him there.
Sevan Matossian (27:00):
When you see that in your rogue or you’re running a competition, do you change it after that? Do you be like, okay, on the last one, you don’t have to stand up, you just have to get over the line.
Tyler Watkins (27:13):
The line has to fall on somebody as in the judging line. I think this is always Bill’s point. You have to put the line somewhere and that’s the line
Sevan Matossian (27:23):
Tyler Watkins (27:24):
Sevan Matossian (27:26):
It’s like, let me play it for you again. That’s even hard to catch as a judge. I mean, this happened so quick. I had to watch it three times before I saw exactly why he didn’t.
Andrew Hiller (27:36):
Oh dude. His shoulders are never over his hips and it sucks, but he
Sevan Matossian (27:42):
Is he standing up? Would you say he’s standing up in all the other ones?
Andrew Hiller (27:48):
No. Well, that’s interesting when you put it that way because no, he is not really ever up, but he is especially not up on that last one. Oh
Sevan Matossian (27:56):
God. That’s just fucking brutal. So this really was what kept this dude out.
Andrew Hiller (28:01):
That is unfortunate.
Sevan Matossian (28:06):
Don’t worry, Pedro. Very soon you’re going to have a 32 inch monitor. You’re going to see exactly what the rest of us are seeing. Don’t worry.
He’s like a tac on your screen too. Right?
Sevan Matossian (28:17):
So it looks like the submitted score was 10 21, so he got a two minute and three second penalty. Is that how that works?
Andrew Hiller (28:25):
Wait, a end of the, so the thing that the CrossFit game season has done pretty well is for stuff like that they add seconds, but this is two minutes for that. That seems like a bit much for me.
How about, was there just one set of lunges? Did he do that multiple times?
Sevan Matossian (28:46):
Oh, I don’t know. I used to mean multiple times. I dunno what the work workout is. Hey, and kudos to Rogue dude that’s giving the athletes a lot right there. Right? That’s beautiful.
Andrew Hiller (28:56):
Here we go. It says you did not meet the movement standards for the dumbbell suitcase carrier specifically at the end of the 25th, 25 foot section. But that means that every single one potentially questionable. He’s doing that, but they’re pointing out that one spot in particular. That’s kind of how I read it.
I really like though how he said, despite deeming the penalty a bit harsh and committed, he’s just saying, okay, yeah, whatever. Move on. It’s not a sob story or it’s not a, oh fuck this, let’s cancel rogue. He’s like, he’s just taking his medicine.
Sevan Matossian (29:32):
Yeah. Oh yeah. He handled it well. I love seeing what Rogue gives the athletes too. It’s beautiful. The whole thing is clean. No one take this as complaining. The whole fucking thing is clean. It’s nice. Someone in here says Saber and Kelly say, where is John Young? He told us where he was at. I think he’s really disappointed. Coaching. Coaching. Okay. I think he’s really disappointed. I moved the show from six 30 to six to five 30 to five to four to four 30 to four. Yeah. I kept.
