Live Call In Show | Are You Ready?

Sevan Matossian (00:00):

We’re live. Two days ago I did a hundred snatches, no, maybe no. About a week ago I did a hundred snatches with a dump 50 pound dumbbell, and then I actually did 90, no six times. Yeah, I did 90 and then two days ago I did a hundred and with the dumbbell,


I did the 90 with the 50 pound dumbbell, and I did the, two days ago I did a hundred with the 35 pound dumbbell. No, yesterday before the workout. In the morning. Yeah. Before they announced the workout. I did 90 snatches with a 35 pound dumbbell after our morning show, and I like to do, if I have time, I like to work out a little bit before a show so that I have clarity of mine and that I look buff. And a snatch is a good move. I get my arms pumped up a little bit in my shoulders, a little pump going, but two days ago I did 300 lunges with a 30 pound vest.

Matthew Souza (01:13):


Sevan Matossian (01:14):

Yeah. And my ass, and I did that just unbroken. I don’t know what my time was. It was over 10 minutes, but my ass is broken.

Matthew Souza (01:20):

I was going to say how your bump

Sevan Matossian (01:24):

My ass looks like Slinky’s ass. It is a, it’s a bulbous hairy phenomenon. My goodness.

Matthew Souza (01:33):

Oh, you know what? I realized we might need that Matian QR code Swap sides, huh?

Sevan Matossian (01:38):

Oh, is that a bad side?

Matthew Souza (01:40):

Oh, wouldn’t bring up comments. It just blocks it. I don’t know if that’s big a deal. You just can’t leave ’em up there for too

Sevan Matossian (01:43):

Long. I’m going to see if it, yeah, because we got to sell the toothpaste. Lemme see if I’m going to see if it works.

Matthew Souza (01:51):

Good idea.

Sevan Matossian (01:54):

I’m stoked. People are texting me, telling me they love it. I knew they would. My teeth are getting my teeth. I’m so happy I found tooth powder. Fuck

Matthew Souza (02:03):

Yeah. I got to get myself some.

Sevan Matossian (02:06):

Oh, I just got a nice text from Jason Kpa. Got to get you to one of our men’s club workouts sometime Saturdays at six 30 if you ever want come. That’s cool. Yeah, I do, but dude,

Matthew Souza (02:21):

I get it. You would have to wake up super early and

Sevan Matossian (02:24):

Well, I’m guaranteed to get injured, dude. I hate to argue my own limitation, dude, the mornings are, I’m so stiff in the morning, dude. Just

Matthew Souza (02:34):

Bring the camera, not

Sevan Matossian (02:36):

Oh, and not work out. Yeah. Hey, I’ve even tried this. I’ve even tried waking up early, riding the assault bike for 10 minutes forward, then five minutes backwards, really slow and with a sweatshirt on and long johns and been just so soaking wet and my back still isn’t the way it is by noon. It’s like money, right? I just, my body’s just not a morning body.

Matthew Souza (03:05):

Yeah, yeah. Take a little bit to get, you got to let the car run in the driveway for

Sevan Matossian (03:09):

A few minutes. I’ve even prayed to God no shit. I’ve been like, dear God, can you help me with my back? Can you please make it so in the mornings? I, I’m good.

Matthew Souza (03:17):

When did you start doing that?

Sevan Matossian (03:19):

I mean, I’ve tried everything. I’m no stone left unturned.

Matthew Souza (03:22):

I was going to ask, I’m

Sevan Matossian (03:23):

Even willing to try peptides, willing to do anything.

Matthew Souza (03:33):


Sevan Matossian (03:35):

Think I’m going to do the workout tomorrow. O

Matthew Souza (03:39):

Okay. Are you going to submit a video? How’s that

Sevan Matossian (03:41):

Happening? I don’t know if I’m going to, yeah, I’m definitely going to film it with my phone. When I injured my bicep, it was because I was lowering a, I can’t remember if it was a 70 or 80 pound dumbbell, but that’s how I hurt my bicep, my left arm. And it still hurts when I do snatches and whenever, when I did those a hundred snatches I told you about and those 90, when I lower it with my left hand, I always grab with my right hand here.

Matthew Souza (04:05):

Yeah. Protected

Sevan Matossian (04:06):

And lower and I’m pretty sure does it say something in the rule that if you do it with one arm, your other arm can’t touch that arm? Is there anything in the rules that says that

Matthew Souza (04:15):

Usually your other arm has to stay out to the side? I haven’t read the official rule book yet for this particular workout, but yeah, usually you got to keep your hand off to the side.

Sevan Matossian (04:23):

Yeah, I might break that rule. I might. I don’t know. I also thought about just doing it all with one arm.

Matthew Souza (04:32):


Sevan Matossian (04:33):

I’m more, I’m not trying to go to core. No. My back’s good. I keep good position and it’s only 50 pounds. I won’t get crazy. I won’t get crazy and you know, I’m going to love the burpees jumping over the barbell. I did a little run yesterday or the dumbbell is not, it is not easy for me. Yeah. That’s

Matthew Souza (04:52):

Going to be the issue, right. I’m

Sevan Matossian (04:53):

Vertically challenged. It didn’t hurt or anything, but I’m vertically challenged. No, it does say other hand, can’t touch. No hand allowed, no handy allowed. Yeah. I might have to just break that rule. I might have to break that rule.

Matthew Souza (05:11):


Sevan Matossian (05:12):

I do different things too. When I snatch, sometimes I use the traditional way they teach you in the L one, right. Straight arm, straight up. And then when I’m cycling it, sometimes I do the kettlebell method. You know what I mean? A little swing out. Sometimes I turn in like this, sometimes I pull straight up like this, like a hammer curl. Sometimes I just do the traditional method for the love of God, please put on a good pair of underwear so we don’t have to look at your hog. Yeah, I was actually thinking about that too.

Matthew Souza (05:55):

Oh my goodness.

Sevan Matossian (05:56):

Oh, I texted someone this morning, said, Hey, I have this idea. I’m going to call you later today. And the person responded, I’m traveling for a funeral, but I should be free sometime. Do you call that person?

Matthew Souza (06:10):

Probably not. If they’re traveling for a funeral, hopefully they’re

Sevan Matossian (06:14):

Not. Especially if I was going to ask this person for money. Yeah. Maybe

Matthew Souza (06:20):

We hold off on that. As I said, they’re not going to South Lake Tahoe are they?

Sevan Matossian (06:25):

No. Why did something happen up there?

Matthew Souza (06:27):

Yeah, man. It was actually, unfortunately a family friend, but two deaths due to Fentanyl.

Sevan Matossian (06:33):

Oh no shit.

Matthew Souza (06:34):

Yeah, they were at a party Super Bowl party and they just thought it was actually just cocaine and had no intention of doing anything

Sevan Matossian (06:42):

Besides Oh, is that the story that’s been in the news with the guys they found outside Frozen? They thought they froze to death.

Matthew Souza (06:48):

No, these people, the four of them were actually found into in a house and all four were unresponsive, but they hit him with Narcan and it’s the same story is it?

Sevan Matossian (06:57):

Yeah, two of the guys they found outside.

Matthew Souza (06:59):

Okay, so then those might’ve been the two that survived.

Sevan Matossian (07:03):

No, no, no. I think, no, the two guys died. I was following that story too. Two guys survived. No, sorry. One guy survived. One guy they found dead in the house, two in the backyard, I think. But that’s a crazy story.

Matthew Souza (07:17):

Yeah. Well, it’s a bunch of, it’s happening because it just found its way into party drugs that nobody that would want to do fentanyl were doing.

Sevan Matossian (07:26):

Yeah, that’s a really sad story. And the poor guy who survived too, I suspect he’s a mess.

Matthew Souza (07:34):

And so the two that survived in the situation I’m talking about, there’s a huge investigation because apparently it’s like it hit it pretty hard in Tahoe. Yeah, Emma said we’re talking about two different stories. Yeah, we got that. Oh,

Sevan Matossian (07:47):

We are talking about two different stories. Yeah, the one I’m talking about is a Super Bowl story too. Crazy

Matthew Souza (07:52):

Dude, it hit him right there. Whoever brought in a bunch of coke and sold it to all these young kids that were wanting a party during the Super Bowl, it was laced with fentanyl and a bunch of people died enough to where the feds were out there doing investigations.

Sevan Matossian (08:04):


Matthew Souza (08:05):

Yeah. Yeah.

Sevan Matossian (08:08):

China, I wish I could do a Trump impersonation. I should work on that.

Matthew Souza (08:15):

China. That’s terrible.

Sevan Matossian (08:19):

I don’t get why they put so much fentanyl in the stuff. No repeat customers. Hi Caleb.

Matthew Souza (08:24):

Good morning, Caleb.

Sevan Matossian (08:25):

I, if I’ve ever, I wonder if I’ve ever done fentanyl.

Matthew Souza (08:29):

No, dude, when you did it, it would’ve been meth or something. It would’ve been laced with fentanyl. Wasn’t an issue back then.

Sevan Matossian (08:36):

For a couple days I was hitting the sinex or Mucinex sprays. I was getting that cocaine burn, that meth burn.

Matthew Souza (08:48):


Sevan Matossian (08:49):


Matthew Souza (08:50):

I’ll get you.

Sevan Matossian (08:51):


Matthew Souza (08:52):

Caleb knows about that meth. They ain’t telling you

Caleb Beaver (08:55):

I could hit that shit all day

Sevan Matossian (08:56):

Long. Yeah, yeah, I know. That shit’s great, isn’t it? That burn? Hey, I don’t know if you guys do this, but do you know those long onions? They’re like green onions. Is that what they’re called? Green onions? They’re just long and skinny.

Caleb Beaver (09:11):

Yeah, I think so.

Sevan Matossian (09:12):

Well, it’s not uncommon growing up in an Armenian household. So when dinner’s served, there’ll often be a glass bowl full of radishes and those green onions will be standing in there. Yeah, those, so it’s really common. So the other day I went to my mom’s house. My mom cuts off those little roots at the end, the roots, and then she puts them in a cup and they sit on the table. And so there’s stuff like that. There’s chopped carrots and celery and cauliflower and radishes and those. And I just hammer those. And it’s so funny because I was eating those and those make your nose burn. Those will clear out your nose too. And


It’s uncomfortable, but I still like it. But it’s funny because I’m 51 years old and my mom was telling my boys, Hey, it’s only spicy at the end. At the end where the green is. And my whole life, I eat them so fast I chomp on ’em and mow it in and stuff. The whole thing in that I thought it was the white part. I just assumed it was the white part, the part that was in the ground, but it’s not. It’s the part that’s sticking out where the green is. I heard her telling the boys that. I was like, oh shit, I just learned something new.

Caleb Beaver (10:26):

It’s pretty racist if you think it’s the white part.

Sevan Matossian (10:29):


Matthew Souza (10:30):

Very. He’s biased.

Sevan Matossian (10:34):

You do sound better today. I’m coughing it all out now.

Caleb Beaver (10:39):

You know what you should do 24.1 and then you’ll cough everything out.

Sevan Matossian (10:43):

Did you do it already, Caleb?

Caleb Beaver (10:44):

Yeah, I did it this morning with my wife.

Sevan Matossian (10:46):

How bad was it? Bad. How

Caleb Beaver (10:48):

Was it? Yeah, it’s fucking horrible. Is it? Yeah, I’m still kind of coughing. And my wife, she was bent over for,

Sevan Matossian (10:57):

My wife was bent over too.

Caleb Beaver (10:59):

It was rough, dude.

Sevan Matossian (11:01):

We had, Hey, we had our first walk-in two nights ago where your ball’s deep and then there’s a third person in the room

Caleb Beaver (11:15):

And it wasn’t the dog this time.

Sevan Matossian (11:17):

No, it’s so crazy In la la land. I’m like in la la land, I’m still at 51. I still can’t believe someone has sex with me. And so I’m fully focused and then my wife goes, did you hear something? And I look over and someone’s standing next to the bed,

Matthew Souza (11:42):

How’d the rest go? How’d the rest of that

Sevan Matossian (11:45):

Go? Braylin Trish. I mean Braylin don’t break character buddy. Don’t break. Please don’t break.

Matthew Souza (11:56):

You just snuck something in there. I like that bra.

Sevan Matossian (12:02):

Braylin is, I don’t know if you guys know this.

Matthew Souza (12:05):

Welcome back

Sevan Matossian (12:07):

Is related to Trish, distant cousins. Yeah, but they’re related.

Matthew Souza (12:14):

Yeah, they’re hs.

Sevan Matossian (12:15):

Yeah. Braylin is Trish’s second cousin on the mom’s side of Trish was removed. Or

Matthew Souza (12:23):

The second cousin.

Sevan Matossian (12:24):

Yeah, second cousin on mom’s side. It’s

Matthew Souza (12:26):

Rumor habit that Braylin actually introduced Trish to CrossFit.

Sevan Matossian (12:31):

I don’t think that’s a rumor. I think that’s fair. Yeah, so that’s how Trish got into CrossFit and so I don’t know if maybe Braylin will tell us the story what happened to Trish or I don’t want to suggest this, but the first two things I said are true. Braly is related to Trish and did introduce Trish to CrossFit and Braly and I do not want to hurt your business, so I apologize for bringing this up, but we are a transparent show. There are rumors that you injured Trish,

Matthew Souza (13:07):

That you cut her brake lines

Sevan Matossian (13:10):

In a workout that you had her do some combo of running and deadlifts without a proper warmup. She hurt her back or her husband hurt her back. The details are a little fuzzy and that led to some neuropathy in the foot and that caused some poor driving of the rv and that’s what happened, that it was some sort of related to a CrossFit injury, God forbid, and then downstream led to the car accident.

Matthew Souza (13:47):

I just,

Sevan Matossian (13:48):

That’s pretty dramatic to drop on you guys first thing in the morning,

Matthew Souza (13:52):

But we are,

Sevan Matossian (13:55):

Yeah, I will only say that it was tragic. And you know what, and I know you’re a great trainer and I don’t want to affect your bottom line. It could have happened to anyone. Oh, I haven’t sent you the notes yet. I’ll send you the notes while we only

Matthew Souza (14:21):

Say it was

Sevan Matossian (14:21):

True. What you’re about to see is not the exception. This is the norm guys. This is the norm. And by the way, I’m not blaming social media for anything. No one should give away their power. Everyone should take responsibility and accountability, but here we go.

Speaker 4 (14:43):

There’s research that talks about the benefits of social media and minimizes the harms. You can follow the money to find that it was nearly always backed by a big tech firm. Let’s take a look at this article, which was published two days ago. This article was prepared by Professor Andrew, sorry, professor Bilski. He works for the Oxford Internet Institute, which prides themselves on producing world-class research to understand our life online. So let’s take a look at this recent research article that was put out by this institute and let’s go to the funding section. You will see that this research was funded by the Hugh Family Foundation and if you look up this foundation, you can see that the first trustee listed is Dr. Jan Hugh, who is the managing partner of CAPA Investment Management. Now let’s look at the investment fund of CAPA Investment Management.


7% of their portfolio, over $100 million in shares are in meta. So the research from Oxford Internet Institute is not in fact objective. The research is funded by a foundation that benefits from positive news about meta, and this isn’t the only article that the Oxford Internet Institute has published that paints meta or Instagram or Facebook in a positive light. There are lots like this one that says that the spread of Facebook use is not linked to psychological harm by Oxford. And this one which says that the internet isn’t harmful for your mental health by the Oxford team, and this one is my favorite, titled A meta own site Facebook might Benefit mental Health. They’re obviously trying to flood our feed with positive research on meta and Facebook, so we don’t think about or know about the harms, but the US government issued an official advisory about social media warning us of the risks. Over 40 US states are suing Meta and other big tech companies for how harmful their platforms are for our kids. Over 200 school districts are doing the same. Teen depression and suicide are higher than they’ve ever been and they’re using social media more than ever. Meta is actively trying to manipulate us into thinking that Facebook and Instagram are good for our kids. I’m not fooled and I hope you aren’t either. Thank you to Hannah Ortel of Delay Smartphones for basically being a detective and helping to make this

Sevan Matossian (16:48):

The same way that they’re trying to normalize all these heart conditions. Now the myocarditis is the shit with amyloid proteins. They’re trying to make that normal. They also are trying to normalize that it’s just part of a girl growing up to be deeply insecure and to have the issues we’re seeing run rampant through kids direct. It’s been exacerbated dramatically by kids direct interaction with millions and billions of people through the internet. There are some amazing graphs out there that show the launch date of Instagram around 2012 and as its popularity grew with all of these issues with kids, suicide being the most dramatic one, and of course they’re just correlates, right man, to not think that everything around us isn’t affecting us. I think it is a miss. Is miss the real Kevin as a society? Wow, my voice is doing some shit. Yeah.

Matthew Souza (18:10):

Kind of went somewhere on us

Sevan Matossian (18:13):

As a society. We are just weak-minded. I wonder what that means, weak-minded. Look at elite athletes that quit because they are not mentally strong enough.

Matthew Souza (18:27):

I honestly think it has to do. If someone were to say, Hey, if you could make one decision that would help with that, one thing that we could apply, that would help with that, I would say making sure that there is some sort of rigorous exercise involved in all of our kids lives, at least for one hour a day. I don’t

Sevan Matossian (18:49):

Mean that would be enormous.

Matthew Souza (18:51):

It would be enormous. And guess what? It’s one of the cheapest things we could do. There’s no going to be no bad side effect for the kids. You’re not putting ’em on some drug or experimental thing and just have ’em do rigorous exercise for one hour a day. How is that not just baked into everything we do with our society and our kids?

Sevan Matossian (19:12):

Also, why not just take some dramatic, let me go back to Mal real quick. I saw Mal do that interview with Lauren Khalil and what she points at is not social media and I buy it 100% what she points at. I really liked what she pointed at obviously because it resonated with me. She basically said that she was always thinking ahead, it’s seven o’clock and she’s worried, shit, I got to be in bed in an hour and a half. She can’t get settled. She can’t go to the movies and enjoy herself because she’s thinking about what the workout’s going to be tomorrow. And so she was always in full journey in the future mode. She wasn’t doing journey. She was always stuck in destination. And I’ve been like that. I remember being like that as a kid. It sucked. It sucked. Always worried about right, always worried about what’s going to happen in the future.


So I am not hearing the social media thing from her. That being said, if you’re having some sort of issues, mental health issues and you haven’t taken dramatic action, like gotten rid of your phone and to a flip phone, spent Saturdays and Sundays hiking eight hours a day with a friend or by yourself, then you haven’t tried to cut sugar out of your diet. You haven’t taken any actions yet. You’re not doing anything. I don’t think there’s any, yeah, you’re just get some self-help books. Get some books that show Start learning how the mind works. That’s really important too because we live in this world of duality and people think that they’re going to jump from bad to good not realizing that maybe they’re the same things. It’s just more thoughts, more confusion.

Matthew Souza (21:10):

I also think that we got a lot of this going on.

Sevan Matossian (21:13):

What’s that? OCD?

Matthew Souza (21:15):

Well, most people would think it’s obsessive compulsive disorder, but I think it’s obsessive comparison disorder.

Sevan Matossian (21:21):

Give me an example. What do you mean?

Matthew Souza (21:23):

I thought I was the best artist around it in my school and my drawings were the shit I could show ’em. And everybody’s like, oh my gosh. Went to Academy of Art University, looked around and started comparing my drawings to all those people and I was at the bottom of the fucking totem pole and all of a sudden my self, my drawings was

Caleb Beaver (21:39):


Matthew Souza (21:41):


Sevan Matossian (21:42):

You were big fish in small pond and then you were big fish in enormous pond.

Matthew Souza (21:47):

And then all of a sudden I was like, fuck, I suck. I can’t do this. I can never live up to these expectations. So imagine thinking you’re doing well in life or you’re doing something or you achieve something and then you go and you look into social media and you’re one of these people that are just eating processed Franken foods. You don’t have any exercise. There’s no rigorous activity, so you don’t have any built confidence in any of this in your brain’s mush because you’re feeling it with garbage. Then you open up your phone and start, you had a small win in your actual life. Then you open up your phone and compare that win to what’s going on on social media and all of a sudden you’re deflated and you feel worse because of that win. Then you would have just a celebrating that accomplishment without the comparison.

Sevan Matossian (22:23):

The YouTube station is like that, right? We’ve had a record day every day for the last two weeks, and yet our monthly views are skyrocketing. And yet if you look at our entire station, all the views cumulatively, there’s 1,000,012 year olds that have had one video that has more views than our entire station in three years.

Matthew Souza (22:41):

There’s a makeup tutorial by a teenage boy that’s happening right now that’s got 51,000 live listeners,

Sevan Matossian (22:48):

Right? Right. Yep. Right. A makeup tutorial by a boy. Yes. There’s a video on the internet with more, with 10 times the amount of views of our entire station. It’s had to shave your anus. I

Matthew Souza (23:00):

Know. I know. I’ll be damned right.

Caleb Beaver (23:05):


Sevan Matossian (23:05):

I need to do this show. Face down, ass up.

Matthew Souza (23:10):

And Caleb needs to start putting on makeup and I think we’d have a perfect, perfect channel.

Caleb Beaver (23:15):

I’m doing it right now with this massive pig I bought called Shaan.

Matthew Souza (23:20):

Hi guys. Welcome to my channel.

Caleb Beaver (23:22):

Welcome to my channel. Do you see this lovely brown here?

Sevan Matossian (23:34):

This account is something else. This account is something else. Let’s

Caleb Beaver (23:43):

Get ready for school. Drop off on this

Speaker 5 (23:44):

Super disheveled morning. I clearly have not looked in the mirror this morning or else I probably would’ve combed my hair.

Sevan Matossian (23:52):

By the way, this chick would handle an uncircumcised penis like a boss.

Caleb Beaver (23:58):

She looks uncircumcised.

Sevan Matossian (24:00):

Look at how she works. For those of you don’t know how uncircumcised penis works, she’s going to give you a tutorial right here. Look it. This is exactly how it works. Look it.

Speaker 5 (24:08):

Start filming this video, but I am nothing if I’m not honest and raw about what real life motherhood looks like and sometimes it looks like this. I quite literally roll out of bed and walk right to the kitchen to start making the kids breakfast every single morning.

Sevan Matossian (24:21):

I cannot believe her kids eat that in the morning. Those corn dogs are just wrapped in sugar

Matthew Souza (24:32):

With a side of sugar

Sevan Matossian (24:34):

With a side, yeah. Bowl of sugar.

Matthew Souza (24:37):

Do you think now maybe let’s give her the benefit of that. Do you think that she’s fully aware of what she’s feeding her kids in terms of what’s it actually doing to her body?

Caleb Beaver (24:48):

No way.

Matthew Souza (24:50):

Yeah. Right. Do you think it’s just an education thing?

Caleb Beaver (24:53):

This is the cheapest thing I could find at Walmart and I can get a hundred of ’em. I just throw ’em in my freezer, feed it up real quick and feed it to my kids.

Sevan Matossian (25:02):

Call her hot.

Matthew Souza (25:03):

It’s like an economic thing. Hello?

Sevan Matossian (25:05):


Caleb Beaver (25:07):


Sevan Matossian (25:07):

What’s up, Braylin?

Matthew Souza (25:09):

Pressured consumer. There you

Sevan Matossian (25:11):

Go. Hey, caller high. Sorry.

Speaker 6 (25:13):

Hi. Hello. Hey. But that’s what’s wrong. I mean, I’m looking at what you just played and that’s honestly what the problem is with our current circumstance with bad mental health. You’re beating children with terrible nutrition in the morning. Not giving ’em the proper nutrition is only going to lead to bad decisions for kids. And I would assume also that lady does not work out.

Sevan Matossian (25:47):

I don’t think she works out. I think that’s fair.

Speaker 6 (25:50):

And so to say that this is normal, I think that’s where the problem starts when people normalize those types of behaviors. It only creates bad habits. And

Sevan Matossian (26:04):

What’s crazy is those kids are in front of a TV set right now waiting for their breakfast and they’re going to get that and then they’re going to get that breakfast while they sit and watch the tv. And for those of you have kids, what happens? Your kids could be having a great day. You let ’em watch TV for 30 minutes and you’ll notice a shift in their behavior. It’s bizarre.

Speaker 6 (26:25):

Oh, for sure. I have a 2-year-old and he mimics everything I do. So whenever I’m in the gym, I do have a home gym here equipped to do what I need to do for CrossFit training. He mimics what I do. So he started deadlifting at months and he’s two years and three months now a, he’s started gymnastics at 14 months and so he’s the most active kid. But he does what he does because he sees me and mom exercise and he mimics what we eat. He follow, he’s a copy paste of the parents.

Sevan Matossian (27:11):


Speaker 6 (27:11):

Healthy parent. Healthy kid. Kid has abs. I don’t even have abs.

Sevan Matossian (27:18):

Come on. Feed him. Come on, feed him. Stop starving your kid.
