TYR Wodapalooza // Event 1 RECAP & Event 2 PREVIEW // Cortadito

Chase Ingraham (00:00):

An hour and 14 minutes,

Sevan Matossian (00:02):

Bam. We’re live. Okay. So you think the next workout starts that we need to watch in an hour and 14 minutes?

Chase Ingraham (00:08):

Yes. I think it’s in an hour and 14 minutes.

Sevan Matossian (00:10):

Correct. And what is that workout called?

John Young (00:13):


Sevan Matossian (00:14):

Corto Cord. Corto or

Chase Ingraham (00:18):

Cordato if you’re will. Brand setter.

Sevan Matossian (00:23):

Cortado. Alright. What’s the biggest news? I know we just watched the men, but can you remember we did watch some women do some lifts. What’s biggest news? The biggest hype. Is there even a leaderboard for this yet?

Dave Castro (00:41):

I would say it’s ge snatch is the biggest.

John Young (00:45):

That was the most impressive thing we saw

Chase Ingraham (00:47):

Ge snatch bronze, absolute F up. And then we have a new leader in the snatch house in the women’s division

Sevan Matossian (00:57):


John Young (00:58):

I don’t know if we

Chase Ingraham (01:00):

Today. Today,

John Young (01:01):

Yeah, yeah, yeah. I dunno.

Dave Castro (01:05):


John Young (01:05):

Did not win the snatch. That’s probably just as big of a surprise as skis. Three 10.

Sevan Matossian (01:09):

Okay, before we go to the men, let’s talk about the women. Let’s hit that. That’s the big news in the thing. Is it true? What we’re hearing is that Danny didn’t open her hip at the top of the snatch and that is why

Dave Castro (01:19):

There’s a call that has to be given. And clearly she missed that. First of all, everything she was doing was ridiculous, could have easily done probably even 2 0 5. So I don’t know why she was matching. She said she didn’t want to do an overhead squad, nor nor would she have had time to in that window. So she took two attempts within the window, which when you look at her ability to power snatch 200, you’re thinking what is wrong with you?

John Young (01:44):

It’s stupid.

Dave Castro (01:45):

So maybe it’s that she missed the call in the briefing, which is the judge hit a signal so that you could go into the hang snatch. But what was more realistic is she probably was rushing, there was a window she had to finish within. See how they gave the down signal right there? And by the way, I think that that’s kind of ridiculous because that’s been all over the place. The judge is giving the down call.

Sevan Matossian (02:09):

Okay, so that’s Gabby McDowell at one 90. Here I think we’re about to see Spiegel. That’s her going no rep. Okay.

Dave Castro (02:17):

He was actually also throwing it down.

Sevan Matossian (02:22):

What we’re hearing is that she didn’t open her hip at the top.

Dave Castro (02:27):

I don’t know, man. Pretty damn open to me.

Sevan Matossian (02:28):

That looks open to me buddy.

Dave Castro (02:30):

Pretty damn open to me. But the knees, they could be soft.

Chase Ingraham (02:34):


Dave Castro (02:34):

Bar is swinging forward. We can’t see it from diagonal like the judge is looking.

Sevan Matossian (02:38):

Wait, wait, what do you think it could be? Just so you know, he hasn’t called a no rep yet. He’s about to call it as soon as I hit plays he in going to call the no rep. Is there anything you see wrong here at the top?

Dave Castro (02:51):

The knees

Chase Ingraham (02:52):

Not from this angle,

Dave Castro (02:53):

That right knee and she’s still moving. It’s the Patrick Vellner thruster in the open debacle where he’s moving and when you move, your knees are bent as you’re walking.

Chase Ingraham (03:03):

I don’t think they’re ever, they were not being that strict though for this.

Dave Castro (03:13):

You can’t fault him for it. I mean dude, she did it to herself.

Sevan Matossian (03:17):

I don’t know dude. I don’t know. Dude,

Chase Ingraham (03:20):

You know what this is like? It’s like that. You guys remember Camille’s no rep in the snatch ladder in 2015? That was for Jeff though, right? But what was her thing? Always shitty depth. Shitty depth, right? And so she almost got no rep for her reputation of movement. That might be somewhere in the same vein with what happened with Danny.

Sevan Matossian (03:41):

So let’s be really clear here. This did not need to be a squat snatch, correct?

Dave Castro (03:47):

Clear? Yes.

Sevan Matossian (03:48):


Dave Castro (03:49):

It did not,

Sevan Matossian (03:51):

I still don’t know why he No rep her. So far so good. He hasn’t no rep her. Now watch her feet. She’s on her way up

Dave Castro (04:01):

Because there has to be a time in which the judge gives you a down call and everyone was

Sevan Matossian (04:07):

Doing it looking

Chase Ingraham (04:08):

For it. Okay. Yeah.

Sevan Matossian (04:11):

You’re not allowed to lower the bar until the judge tells you,

Chase Ingraham (04:14):

Correct? Maybe.

Dave Castro (04:18):

So you see how he’s throwing his arm down, but at that point the bar’s already down. If she would’ve waited half a second, it would’ve been cool.

Sevan Matossian (04:23):

Okay. I want us to find another lift here. Okay, so here we have Emily Rolf. Now look, she’s not even up all the way. She’s looking at her judge. Oh, he nods. He gives her the nod.

Dave Castro (04:33):

Yeah, and I think that was her second lift too. So look between the snatch and the hang snatch, see that right in the middle? Arm goes down, bar goes

Sevan Matossian (04:49):

Down. Oh yeah, yeah.

Dave Castro (04:50):

Daniel, Brandon. Yeah.

Sevan Matossian (04:52):

Yeah. Okay.

Dave Castro (04:53):


Sevan Matossian (04:55):

So the lift may have been good. Everything may have been perfect except for that one piece that was probably read to him in the rules that do not start to go down until the judge lowers his hand.

Dave Castro (05:07):

Yeah. So we know Beagle loves listening to the rules, so,

Sevan Matossian (05:12):

Damn Lord Wang, wow, that’s a hell of a name. A hiller is stumped

Dave Castro (05:19):

As this person heard a word I’ve said,

Sevan Matossian (05:21):

Can’t find a reason to say it’s a no rep.

Dave Castro (05:24):

I gave the reason 56 times.

Sevan Matossian (05:27):

Okay, so let me just ask you this. Do you think that this is a bad rule on this here?

Dave Castro (05:36):

The lift is good per the rules. It’s bad and the judge did what the judge is supposed to do. It’s pretty easy.

Chase Ingraham (05:43):


Dave Castro (05:45):

Right. Jason?

Chase Ingraham (05:46):

The rules play it, which the rules

Sevan Matossian (05:48):

Forgive. Hello?

Dave Castro (05:49):

Everyone else had to do the same thing.

Sevan Matossian (05:51):

Hello? Hello.

Chase Ingraham (05:55):

I have a really good video,

John Young (05:57):

Caleb of Danielle, Brandon and Emma Carey, side by side on my story

Chase Ingraham (06:02):

If you’re able to, I think they did a replay of Spiegel’s lift after this live part too.

Dave Castro (06:08):

They did

Sevan Matossian (06:10):

Like a,

Chase Ingraham (06:11):

I think they had a full, yeah.

Sevan Matossian (06:13):

Okay. And then John, remind me, we’ll go over and you have something on your Instagram.

John Young (06:17):

Yeah, my parents got front row seats to this, so they’re just videoing everybody and I’m just tagging everybody’s snatch. But the videos, they’re pretty solid. They’re better than this.

Sevan Matossian (06:29):

Hey, she has a pretty good attitude about it. Her interview afterwards with Tommy Marquez was, no, no, no. What? I

Dave Castro (06:37):

Don’t know why I got no

Chase Ingraham (06:38):

Pretty good. Well that part, but

Sevan Matossian (06:41):

Hey dude, she’s

Dave Castro (06:42):

Not, they’re missing the rules. I missed that whole thing about the arm and everything.

Chase Ingraham (06:46):

Do we know that for sure?

Dave Castro (06:48):

I look at everyone else, dude, there you go. Literally looking over at the judge. Am I good? Yeah. Okay.

Sevan Matossian (06:58):

Oh shit. So that’s the only thing that makes sense is that she had to wait.

Chase Ingraham (07:05):

Yeah, and if that’s the rule, then hey, that’s the rule.

John Young (07:08):

Hey, I’m on Hiller side

Dave Castro (07:10):

Sour puss. No, I’m just the only one who’s going to call it as I see it, everyone else here is doing it too. So yell at Chase. Not me.

Sevan Matossian (07:20):

Where am I? Shit, what am I doing here? I’m trying to go to, I think

Dave Castro (07:24):

We’re all in agreement on that.

Chase Ingraham (07:26):

Yeah, I would just like to know what the official rule was.

Dave Castro (07:30):

Yeah, let we’ll call Brian and Sean on the floor who are also not knowing why it was going on as they were commentating. I don’t know what was wrong there

Sevan Matossian (07:39):

Very clearly. What’s her Instagram? I don’t think I’m blocked by her

John Young (07:44):

De Spiegel. It’s DELL. I’m not blocked.

Dave Castro (07:50):

She left it off. That wasn’t a laugh. That was like a Do you know who I am? Kind of laugh.

John Young (07:56):

I don’t say anything mean, so that’s probably why.

Sevan Matossian (07:58):

What’s her Danny?

Dave Castro (08:01):


John Young (08:01):

ELL and then it should pop up after that.

Sevan Matossian (08:04):

DELL. Oh shit. Maybe I see Danny Spiegel plus Aha. Maybe I am blocked. What’s her Instagram? Someone tell me what her Instagram is. DELL.

Chase Ingraham (08:21):

I have no idea.

Sevan Matossian (08:22):


Dave Castro (08:23):

Fine. Here, I’ll let you Here,

John Young (08:24):

I’ll pull it up. Give me a second. The

Chase Ingraham (08:26):

Leaderboards up on competition quarter if

Sevan Matossian (08:29):

You want it. Oh, Danny Spiegel fan page. Oh shit. I am

Dave Castro (08:32):

Really D-E-L-L-E. Spiegel. That’s it.

Chase Ingraham (08:35):


Sevan Matossian (08:35):

Put it in the chat. D-E-L-L-E. All one word,

Dave Castro (08:38):


Sevan Matossian (08:40):

Oh yeah. Fuck. She got me blocked. I’ve never even commented on her page. How the fuck could I be blocked from there? I didn’t even do nothing to her.

Dave Castro (08:47):

You told her her shirt was too small once

Sevan Matossian (08:49):

It was too small. Her shirt. Oh yeah, her shirt was too small.

Dave Castro (08:53):

Yeah, row 2022.

Sevan Matossian (08:56):

I don’t want to, don’t

Dave Castro (08:57):

Forget when you say their clothes don’t fit, dude,

Sevan Matossian (09:00):

You think the guy at Mayhem who always make fun of for his shirt not fitting the coach over there has me blocked.

Dave Castro (09:05):

Yeah, he does.

Sevan Matossian (09:07):

He does. Okay, John, where do I go? John? John Young CrossFit. John Young CrossFit.

John Young (09:12):


Chase Ingraham (09:13):

Okay, here we go.

Sevan Matossian (09:17):

No, there’s nothing there. It’s just you lifting weights buddy.

John Young (09:19):

Sorry. No, my story.

Chase Ingraham (09:21):

Oh, okay, here we go.

Sevan Matossian (09:26):

Who ended up winning the women’s division?

John Young (09:30):


Chase Ingraham (09:32):


John Young (09:33):

Julia Hanford.

Dave Castro (09:36):

Skip. Why does the leaderboard not work? What is wrong with this competition right now? Tiered.

John Young (09:43):

It’s on a competition

Chase Ingraham (09:44):

Corner right now. I sit in the private chat. Yeah.

Sevan Matossian (09:49):

Rebecca Sison 180 5. Hey, I was impressed by her and Abigail Dot, both of them today. They’re doing it. They’re getting strong.

John Young (10:01):

Yeah, I was impressed by Dome for sure.

Dave Castro (10:06):

Should I yank up the leaderboard? Is that cool?

Sevan Matossian (10:08):

Yeah. Let me just see what other stuff that John Young’s parents have. Oh, Austin Hatfield. Let’s talk about this real quick. How’s Austin doing?

John Young (10:17):

Not great, man.

Dave Castro (10:21):

That’s not entirely fair. I mean you couldn’t

John Young (10:24):


Dave Castro (10:24):

Two 60.

John Young (10:27):

Say again.

Dave Castro (10:28):


John Young (10:30):

I just say he’s much stronger talking. He’s much stronger than what he did. I think he should have done like two 80 and then would’ve, he would’ve had a great finish. Great finish the, this is the most impressive thing.

Sevan Matossian (10:45):

Courtesy of John Young’s parents. Ro Oh wait a second. Wait a second, wait a second. Did he get the lowering call? Did he get the lowering call? Little home cooking here? I don’t know buddy.

John Young (11:07):

That looks the same. That looks like the same.

Dave Castro (11:09):

I dunno, not quite the same.

Sevan Matossian (11:11):

Gee came down before the guy began his arm. Let’s watch it again. Let’s watch it again. Our poor Danny Spiegel got fucked. Look at this little home cooking.

John Young (11:28):

That’s pretty close.

Dave Castro (11:29):

I would’ve to say the rule in general is stupid.

Sevan Matossian (11:33):

Okay. Yeah, I think Danny’s lift was good. Do you think Danny’s lift was good? Hiller?

Dave Castro (11:38):

Yeah, it was good. Chase.

Sevan Matossian (11:39):


Chase Ingraham (11:39):

Yeah, I do. Okay.

Dave Castro (11:44):

Whoever put these judges doing what they’re doing is, no, I’m done. I was going to say something bad.

Sevan Matossian (11:51):

Hey, so are there two judges on Brony there? There’s a guy on the left looking at him, but he’s not the judge. It’s the lady on the right. Oh yeah. Are there two judges per platform?

John Young (12:05):

It does look like there’s two of ’em. There

Chase Ingraham (12:07):

Could be a head judge.

Sevan Matossian (12:09):

Colton Merton’s 2 65. Hey, so Wakowski put this away. He really is going to win. He is going to win Waterloos, isn’t he?

John Young (12:16):

No. No, but he had the best event showing.

Chase Ingraham (12:19):

Did he not have one more overhead squat in him?

John Young (12:23):

I think he got second place

Chase Ingraham (12:26):

Hide for second place.

Sevan Matossian (12:27):

Yeah. Cool. Yeah,

John Young (12:29):

Boy. Oh, it’s on the leaderboard. Yeah, you’re looking at the leaderboard

Chase Ingraham (12:34):

Jack, wasn’t he in Jack Rose? Wasn’t he in the first heat

John Young (12:38):

Or two? The third heat? I think there’s like seven of them.

Chase Ingraham (12:42):

Yeah, there

Sevan Matossian (12:43):

Is seven. And Roman’s out

Dave Castro (12:46):

All you want to know the issue

John Young (12:47):

With this

Sevan Matossian (12:48):

Whole, lemme

Dave Castro (12:48):

Just, I want to know the issue with this judging debacle. I’m going to say it. I sat on it for a minute.


When the judges are on the floor, they’re trying to keep count. They’re trying to understand what they have to do and they’re also trying to put it on so everyone outside knows what’s going on. And I think that that thing is entirely idiotic. So the judges get reprimanded for not holding positions and throwing up signals for the crowd and the audience to know what’s going on. And when you give them all these things to do, they do the thing they’re supposed to do wrong. And I think that it’s ridiculous that that’s put on the judges as well. Does that make any sense? 4, 3, 2, 1. Hey everyone, make sure you show 5, 4, 3, 2, 1. And then the judge forgets what number they’re actually on because they’re trying to show the audience. The audience doesn’t match the competition. It’s what matters.

John Young (13:38):

There’s a bit of a discrepancy right now, so it shows Hatfield has 2 55 and he clearly did 2 65 on the stage.

Sevan Matossian (13:48):


John Young (13:49):

What it was on his scorecard the whole time.

Sevan Matossian (13:51):

Okay, Hiller, sum up what you were going to say before we go to that thing about Hatfield because we need to talk about Roman two. Tell me the, you’re saying the judges are having to keep track of too much shit

Dave Castro (14:03):

On top of the fact that there’s always new movements, there’s always new intricacies to the ways they’re supposed to be presenting themselves as judges, which I think is ridiculous.

Sevan Matossian (14:12):

Okay. Okay. Hey, let’s stand. What Dan

Dave Castro (14:15):

Stegel did was fine. She did the rep rate. If you pause it for extra a second, she’s standing up. Right? But she didn’t do the call ridiculous. And I’m just upset that I didn’t win shot caller.

Sevan Matossian (14:27):

Before we go to the leaderboard. I suspect I have not seen the leaderboard, but that Roman Koff did not make it in the top 10 of this event.

John Young (14:37):

Hey, wait, wait, you ready for this Vellner, Ricky and Roman, all of them did not make the top 10. Wow. So if you have Vellner, Ricky or Roman winning Gu Palooza.

Dave Castro (14:48):

We were talking about this yesterday.

Sevan Matossian (14:50):

Yeah, yeah, I know.

John Young (14:51):

And me and JR agreed on this and Taylor said we were on crack and it’s not, I don’t,

Sevan Matossian (14:56):

Oh, I don’t know. You and JR kind of pushed out a little bit. Taylor raised his voice and you guys backed it out. Well, we’re just

Dave Castro (15:02):

Win. Well that means if Couch’s got win,

Sevan Matossian (15:04):


Dave Castro (15:05):

If Feki got to win

Sevan Matossian (15:06):

Win to prove John’s point win, then

Dave Castro (15:08):

You’re all going to be wrong

John Young (15:10):

And we’ll see what those strict pull-ups do.

Sevan Matossian (15:12):

Okay? Let’s go ahead and take a look at the leaderboard. Did Roman choke? Is that what happened? He choked.

John Young (15:20):

No, he is not good at snatch.

Sevan Matossian (15:22):

He’s not good at snatch. I’m mad at the

Dave Castro (15:23):

Judge. I’m mad at the organization. Greg Glassman. I’m not mad at the judge.

Sevan Matossian (15:30):

What are the two things? Clutch and choke and Roman was not clutch

John Young (15:39):

In this event. He was not clutch. If you go back to the Vellner video, he misses 2 75 twice and then hits it. It’s pretty incredible. You just do that many tries and that many times still hit it.

Sevan Matossian (15:52):

Okay, we will get back to that. Julie Hannaford a one trick pony. Is that it? We won’t hear her name again. She will just plummet. Or is she in it to win it? She can be top 10 at the end of the weekend.

Dave Castro (16:05):

I know nothing about Julia Hannaford.

John Young (16:07):

No, I do not think she’ll be top 10 at the end of the weekend.

Sevan Matossian (16:12):

Julia, let’s peep her for a second. Hannaford. Thank you. Caleb, did you pull that up? The leaderboard? Damn, you’re good. She’s popping up out of nowhere. Julia Hannaford. She’s ever been to the games?

John Young (16:29):


Sevan Matossian (16:31):

What’s going on here? How come I can’t get her page? How come I can’t make this thing go away? On the side? That picture right

Dave Castro (16:37):

There. What is she wearing on her head in the bottom middle, right person in the middle. What does she have on her head? This? No, above it up one to the right.

Sevan Matossian (16:46):

Oh, this. Oh

Dave Castro (16:47):

Yeah. What is that? On that person’s head like a

Sevan Matossian (16:50):

Tree. Oh, Christmas tree. That’s a Christmas tree. Yeah. I thought maybe it was one of those neck things. Her bio says true protein athlete fueled by live fit nutrition team. Okay, so no games, accolades here.

Dave Castro (17:04):

One trick pony.

Sevan Matossian (17:06):

Okay, alright. We’ll call her one trick pony until we know different.

Dave Castro (17:10):

See lots of barbell semi

John Young (17:11):


Dave Castro (17:12):

Last year. 21st place at Tor Pro.

Sevan Matossian (17:15):


John Young (17:16):

Yeah. One trick pony.

Dave Castro (17:18):

The question is who finishes high or her Spiegel?

John Young (17:21):

Spiegel. Spiegel. Easy last.

Sevan Matossian (17:25):

Danny Spiegel. Olivia Stead or

John Young (17:28):

Gray finished for her.

Sevan Matossian (17:30):

Finished nine overhead squat. Did she play that wrong? Should she have gone? Danny Spiegel said, Hey, I don’t like doing overhead squats. I went for the 1 95. Should Olivia have done that? Gone for

John Young (17:38):

1 95? Well, she was before Danny Spiegel. There’s no way of knowing. I think this was going to be her last lift and then she was just going to overhead squat as many times as she wanted to. You’d have to hit 1 95 to her and only two people could

Sevan Matossian (17:51):

I hear you, but nine. Nine.

John Young (17:56):

But when you think Danny s Spiegel is going to do 200, that’s a lot more intimidating than 1 95.

Sevan Matossian (18:02):

Okay. I just think that if you can do nine that maybe you should have calculated that you should have gone for 1 95.

John Young (18:12):

I’m with you. It’s

Chase Ingraham (18:13):

Reward there, but yeah, I mean look, if she doesn’t hit one 90, look at where she would be.

Sevan Matossian (18:19):

Yeah. Okay. I wonder what her,

Chase Ingraham (18:22):

Is it worth the three points she might’ve added to get 1 95

John Young (18:27):


Sevan Matossian (18:29):

Point? You’re saying she would’ve dropped down to seventh or lower? Right. Okay. Fair enough. She’s at

Chase Ingraham (18:34):

24. She could have potentially below 180 5, like 79. That’s just not worth it.

Sevan Matossian (18:40):

Okay, I totally agree. Well said. I lose that argument. Gabriela Awa silently stain at the top of the leaderboard. Another chick from Iceland, CrossFit Revic. Is this an Annie Thor’s daughter protege? Does Annie have her hand on this girl’s shoulder?

Dave Castro (18:55):

No, dude, this is bk G’S sister.

Sevan Matossian (18:58):

Oh, no, no, no, no. Does Annie, Annie your word? I know. Is this Annie’s? I mean she works out at Annie’s gym. Anyone ever heard of her before?

Dave Castro (19:10):


John Young (19:10):

Haven’t. Nope.

Sevan Matossian (19:11):

Alright, we got another one. Rose Scott let us down or did good. She’s tiny, right? She’s tiny. She

John Young (19:17):

Smoked 180 5 and then just went up five pounds. But hey, what weight won the event killer?

Dave Castro (19:27):

It should have been two 15 by Spiegel,

John Young (19:29):

But she But what weight won the event? Some reason

Sevan Matossian (19:31):

1 95.

Dave Castro (19:32):

1 95.

John Young (19:33):

She’s on Instagram doing this complex at 200 pounds in a competition. It’s not out of pocket to say that she has a chance to win the event.

Sevan Matossian (19:41):

Who? Roe Scott?

John Young (19:42):


Dave Castro (19:42):

Johnny Young is never wrong.

John Young (19:45):

I’m wrong all the time. I’m wrong all

Sevan Matossian (19:47):

The time. Hey, so would you say that Roe fucked up?

John Young (19:50):

It was just an odd way to jump. She went from 180 5 to one 90. I don’t get the five pound jumps. Didn’t she miss her

Dave Castro (19:56):

First shot at one 90?

Sevan Matossian (19:58):


John Young (19:59):

First match

Chase Ingraham (20:01):

Yours daughter. She got third in the teen division. 16, 17. She’s a little baby out there.

Sevan Matossian (20:08):

Oh shit, okay. Pretty awesome. So she’s fully legit.

Chase Ingraham (20:12):

Yeah, she

Sevan Matossian (20:12):

Got, okay. Chase eight

Chase Ingraham (20:13):

At 14 and 15 in 2022.

Sevan Matossian (20:16):

Let me push back here a little bit. Scroll back to, let me see the top of the list so I understand Olivia Kerstetter, she has a chance to be top 10, so I understand your logic with why. Hey, play it safe. It’s just a couple of points. Rose Scott doesn’t have a big chance to be top 10. It’s the first event of the week. She might as well just fucking go big for three reasons. Make a name for herself, get as many points as she can, and while she’s fresh, tell me, did Rose Scott fuck up? Because John’s saying this girl can do this at 200.

Chase Ingraham (20:50):

She did not look comfortable on the platform.

John Young (20:52):

She did.

Chase Ingraham (20:53):

Both those lifts looked awful.

Sevan Matossian (20:57):

Let’s also all

Chase Ingraham (20:58):

That she had, I don’t think, it’s not like Spiegel or ett. It’s like, okay, Spiegel had more maybe too big of a jump curse hitter. Might’ve done five to 10 more pounds at best, but Scott did not look good from lift one.

John Young (21:12):

Do you think she’s just weaker before or she’s got something going on?

Chase Ingraham (21:16):

I don’t know. I mean, you heard Danny talking about the availability of warmup going into that. She just might’ve been cold. Wait

Dave Castro (21:22):

A minute. Can you go deeper on that? What do you mean? The availability

John Young (21:24):

Of PFAA clearly states that they’re supposed to have a warmup area. If we’re going to lower the box height, I demand enough bars to be warmed up.

Chase Ingraham (21:35):

I don’t know

Dave Castro (21:36):


Chase Ingraham (21:37):

Situation was, but Danny, in her interview with Tommy, and you guys can run it back if you can find it. She talked about the limited warmup she had going into this event. She said it on the interview. I don’t know if that’s just her personal, maybe she didn’t warm up herself appropriately or is if they had enough time. But that’s what Danny said in her interview, and maybe for these athletes that are lifting these weights, they need to warm up a lot to get to these levels, regardless of it being 90 to 95% of their maxes. Rose Scott did not look comfortable on the platform from get-go.

Dani Speegle (22:12):

Originally when the workout came out, I thought we’d have, yeah,

Dave Castro (22:17):

She was stood up after this lift for just about as long as she stood up for the other one.

Sevan Matossian (22:22):

She’s talking. She’s talking Jesus Christ. She’s talking, hold on. Can you guys hear her talking? Hold on. Here we go. Hold on.

Speaker 6 (22:29):

Let’s send it down to Tommy Marquez, who was with Danny Spiegel.

Tommy Marquez (22:34):

Thanks, John. I’m here with Danny Spiegel 1 95 on the board. Danny, talk me through the strategy of going for two lifts in that last round. Instead of going for the overhead squats,

Dani Speegle (22:43):

I hate overhead squats, so I just wanted to avoid those at all costs. I knew I could get both lifts in the amount of time I do lifts like this every 30 seconds. It was pretty standard in my training, so I knew I could get ’em both in, unfortunately, just I got no wrapped on that first one. I don’t really know what happened, but I’ll take 1 95.

Tommy Marquez (23:00):

You got a great lift on the first round. The only two attempts for this particular lifting complex, did that adjust your strategy based on how the first one felt?

Dani Speegle (23:07):

Yeah, a hundred percent. With a long corral, like 20 minutes to corral, you always kind of go a little conservative.

Sevan Matossian (23:11):

Oh, is that what you’re referencing? She said she was in the corral for 20 minutes, meaning that even that’s part A. Okay. Okay,

Chase Ingraham (23:16):

And then she’ll expand on it. Okay,

Dani Speegle (23:18):

So originally when the workout first came out, I thought we’d have a little bit more time. I thought we’d have time to lift in the back and I was going to open with 1 95, and so it definitely changes. You need to go a little conservative. You just never know what’s going to

Sevan Matossian (23:29):

Happen. Okay, so not only did she not have enough time to warm up, but she was in the corral for 20 minutes. Well,

Chase Ingraham (23:34):

I think this might be, and semifinals changed this the last two years and any lift is at the corral. Time is around 15 minutes on average for any major event to get people in the corrals get set up to go on the competition floor. What I’m hearing from her, and again, I’m not there, so I don’t know exactly what I’m hearing is the corral time was 20 minutes and there might not have been maybe one or two platforms there by the corral so that athletes could stay warm. They might’ve had plenty of space time and equipment in the warmup area, but maybe there was nothing by the corrals that some events have started implementing before heavy lifts to keep them fresh while they’re just sitting there for 20 minutes.

Sevan Matossian (24:12):

This isn’t directed at you. I’m speaking with the voice of Kakowski. I don’t give a fuck what the reason is as a representative of the PFAA. These motherfuckers need a chance to fucking warm up,

Chase Ingraham (24:22):

But I don’t know if they did.

Sevan Matossian (24:24):

Right? Okay. I

Chase Ingraham (24:25):

Know that I’m going off her words.

Sevan Matossian (24:29):


John Young (24:29):

That’s the case that makes geese snatch all the more impressive that it can do three 10 provide a

Dave Castro (24:33):

Smaller secondary warmup area for athletes to utilize at the stage during the corral to stay warm during the event of a one rep max.

Chase Ingraham (24:40):

Right? I don’t know. They talked about that, but based off what she’s saying,

Sevan Matossian (24:44):

God, they should have never teamed up with the PFAA. I need to consult with Dylan on that. This is the last year we allow the PFAA to have shit like

Dave Castro (24:51):

This. Look at that.

Sevan Matossian (24:54):

Now listen. Now listen. Gee doesn’t know the difference between 1 95 and three 10. He explained it. It’s just all the fives. He factors by fives. He’s a mathematician. Okay, back the, oops. Back to the, here we go. Danny Spigel. Livy Kerstetter. Rose Scott would’ve been great to see Rose Scott at the top. She’s awesome. Get more camera time for her. Jessica Andraza does great. Danielle Brandon does what she has to do to stay in the game. I don’t remember one closeup of Danielle Brandon, not one. And there was another girl that deserved a closeup. The Emily Chicken, the very first heat on the far left. Not one closeup of her either. I’m just saying. Nina, Vic, CrossFit, mayhem. Abigail Dome. Rebecca

Dave Castro (25:50):

Edison. Edison. Awesome.

Sevan Matossian (25:53):

Yeah. Great. Great showings for them. Now let’s talk about Emma Carey. Here we are. John Young, outside the top 10 for an event.

John Young (26:04):

Men and women. Crazy.

Sevan Matossian (26:05):

Hey, same weird thing here. Chase two seven reps. Should Emma have gone higher? 180 5? She would’ve been in that mess with all the 180 5 girls, right?

Chase Ingraham (26:16):


John Young (26:17):

And if she misses it, then she’s below all the one eighties.

Chase Ingraham (26:22):

There’s a lot of one eighties in there.

John Young (26:23):


Sevan Matossian (26:27):

Someone we have not seen in the list. Let’s keep scrolling right The inside of your cheek. Everyone keep

John Young (26:36):

Going. Ellie Miller. A lot of people thought Ellie Miller would be great.

Sevan Matossian (26:40):

Ariel Lowen 21.

Dave Castro (26:42):

It’s coach. She was at the Miami Heat Game. Told her not to go to that

Sevan Matossian (26:46):

Last night. She went,

Dave Castro (26:48):


Sevan Matossian (26:49):

Oh, that’s awesome. Good honor. It

Dave Castro (26:50):

Is awesome.

Sevan Matossian (26:52):

Sydney Wells, Rebecca Fufu. A Fifi. There are some fucking pipe hitters down here. Emily Rolf,

John Young (27:01):

And she barely got 1 65 dude, and they did 11 overhead squats. I want to know how her shoulder’s doing after that one.

Sevan Matossian (27:09):

Yeah, listen. Listen to all the people in the world. If Emily Rathwell is at your event, ISO camera on her, please. For fuck’s sake. Ashley Shoemaker. Keep going. Any other pipe hitters down here? Interesting. Right? Moist. Yeah. Andra. Andra. Moist.

Dave Castro (27:32):


Sevan Matossian (27:34):

Do we have a pullout here? Is Becca done or she just didn’t make any lifts?

John Young (27:39):

I think she just missed both lifts.

Sevan Matossian (27:42):

Hey, Becca. Maybe if you joined a CrossFit affiliate, you’d do better. Just saying, okay. All Savvy

Dave Castro (27:48):


John Young (27:49):

JY barbell.

Sevan Matossian (27:51):

Becca. Yeah. Join a fucking affiliate. Or some JY barbell for fuck sake. Come on, Becca. They gave you no reps because you don’t belong to an affiliate. That’s some home cooking.

John Young (28:02):

Do you think Danny doesn’t like over at squats? Because the word squat is in it.

Dave Castro (28:07):

I don’t know why she could possibly not over at squat. She’s built for it.

Sevan Matossian (28:11):

I think that’s a legitimate question.

John Young (28:13):

No, she can’t get low enough is what I’m saying.

Dave Castro (28:17):

Interesting. Probably relative to all of our other lifts, it’s lesser than you would think it would be. So it’s got,

John Young (28:23):

I think so.

Dave Castro (28:25):

I could snatch 2 25, but I can only overhead Squat 2 35. What gives,

Sevan Matossian (28:29):

Hey, did you guys see the picture of Puma selling shoes there at the tier Waap Palooza games?

Dave Castro (28:34):

I think that it’s, they’re letting people try them. They’re not selling them, but I could be wrong about that. That’s what I’ve heard.

Sevan Matossian (28:41):

If I’m tear, I ask them to take their shoes out. Please take your shoes out.

Dave Castro (28:45):

This is like red isn’t red outside of Yeah.

Sevan Matossian (28:49):

Tier’s paying the money. They’re paying the money to be the shoe. They’re the ones who built paid for the platform. Get your fuck out. How about

Dave Castro (28:55):

The broadcast team ditching Reebok.

Sevan Matossian (28:59):

Really? Where do you see that

Dave Castro (29:01):

On their story or they made a post about it? Talking Leaf Fitness

John Young (29:04):

With Gee. Right,

Dave Castro (29:06):


Sevan Matossian (29:09):

Oh, that’s not real.

Dave Castro (29:11):

Well, no, no, no, no, no. On talking Leaf Fitness’s Instagram. Yeah, they pitched Reebok.

Sevan Matossian (29:18):

That can’t be real.

Dave Castro (29:20):

It’s real.

Sevan Matossian (29:21):


Dave Castro (29:22):

I’ll go get it. Totally real.

Sevan Matossian (29:25):

No, that can’t be real. Hey, how big are fucking GIS arms?

John Young (29:31):

They’re not that big, aren’t they? They’re

Dave Castro (29:33):


Sevan Matossian (29:35):

Dude. Wow. Wow.

Dave Castro (29:39):

And then it’s not a story, it’s also a post. So there’s a post on it as well.

Sevan Matossian (29:43):

How does that work for sponsorship Chase? I guess it’s okay. Oh, they

Dave Castro (29:47):

Hid my comments. Well, my main comment, they hid.

Sevan Matossian (29:52):

How does that work? How does that work?

Chase Ingraham (29:57):

I don’t know what the rules are. That tier put.
