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

Dave Castro (00:00):

Yeah, I feel like Alexis and my wife would get along really well. I think that they would,

Sevan Matossian (00:06):

Bam. We’re live. Chase Ingram here from Get with the programming. Hiller from Hiller Fit John Young from the refrigerator and JY barbell. You’re not going to get strong unless you eat. We are covering the tier water palooza event. Tier water palooza games, tier water palooza, throw down tier Waap Palooza in Miami Fitness Fest, tier water palooza something or other. Yeah, if you want to wear what I’m wearing, you probably have to go the REI or something. It’s a smart wool vest or some cheese dick.

Dave Castro (00:41):

Somebody ask that or are you just saying

Sevan Matossian (00:43):

Old man, don’t ruin my bit. Please. Some old man. Some old man shit. But if you want to wear something cool like Chase Ingram is wearing, bam. You got to go OG Colt.

Dave Castro (00:58):

Yes sir.

Sevan Matossian (00:59):

I will put the, wow. John is loud. I will put the link down here. Bam. I don’t know if you guys can use that link. I just put it in the chat. I think links you put in the chat have to be YouTube links, but the website is the OG culture, the OG G culture, and they got a bunch of stuff on there. Puy stuff. Cool Shit. It’s all the shit. All the cool kids are wearing four pages of goodies. Now, if you want to look like John, you would’ve to go to JY barbell and get on his programming. And if you want to look like Hiller,

Dave Castro (01:33):

There’s a couple of things you’re going to have to do. California peppers,

Sevan Matossian (01:38):

You’re going to have to smoke cock, I mean workout,

Dave Castro (01:41):

Just a couple fruit, little fruit.

Sevan Matossian (01:49):

You can get to the 80 yard line, 90 yard line of looking like hill if you just follow his programming, which hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of people do and many, many affiliates do. And you can get to the a hundred yard line if you call ca peptides. But I mean, I’m telling you, just do his programming and eat right. This dude eats right. Sorry, Alex. Sorry. Okay, here we go. Have we sworn it all yet?

Dave Castro (02:15):

Well, you’re the one who’s spoken. I don’t know if I’ve caught any. I kind of just roll with it now.

Sevan Matossian (02:20):


Dave Castro (02:21):

I imagine. I’m running the kids camp. Fair

Sevan Matossian (02:24):


Dave Castro (02:24):

You said smoke mail genitalia. I think that’s the worst

Sevan Matossian (02:27):

Thing. Darn it. I think the way

Dave Castro (02:29):

You just said it was worse though. Alright.

Sevan Matossian (02:32):

Alright. No swear words and no. Oh, John Young yelling. That’s fair enough. Dollar. The thing is it’s going to cost him $10 because he’s going to have to remind us five times. No, Alex, it’s okay to ask. Not to swear is perfectly fine. We can do our best. You’re not making No,

Dave Castro (02:53):

It’s cool to ask that. Yeah, you’re

Sevan Matossian (02:55):

Not going to ask being honest for it. You can ask and

Dave Castro (02:57):

As long as nobody talks,

Chase Ingraham (02:58):

Nobody objectify anybody’s body on Seton’s watch. We’re good.

Sevan Matossian (03:02):

Yeah. Yeah.

Chase Ingraham (03:04):

Why do you say, I’m going to hate some massive

Dave Castro (03:07):


Sevan Matossian (03:10):

All we can do is try. I want to tell you something so you don’t think that

Dave Castro (03:17):

Tri Triack, I don’t care.

Sevan Matossian (03:19):

I’m pretty proud of myself for promising more than no, sorry. Delivering more than I promise. I don’t know what to show you, but I told you there was going to be some fun, innovative stuff that we’re going to do this week, and I’m going to show you a clip here, and this is the kind of stuff I hate to be a cheese dick, but you are not going to see the anywhere else.

Dave Castro (03:46):

Are you about to show it?

Chase Ingraham (03:47):


Sevan Matossian (03:48):

It is so darn good. This is the stuff that Patrick Rios is working on for the Waap Palooza tier. Waap Palooza. This shit hasn’t been, oh, this stuff hasn’t been done before. 4 99 to continue to swear. No.

Chase Ingraham (04:04):

49 99.

Sevan Matossian (04:06):

Hey guys, more misogyny today, please.

Chase Ingraham (04:09):

I like this battle. I like this battle.

Sevan Matossian (04:12):

Oh no. For a small price, I will do some massaging first before I play this, let me know. Can you guys hear this? Listen.

Dave Castro (04:23):


Sevan Matossian (04:24):

No, you can’t.

Dave Castro (04:25):

No, I can’t see all your tabs though.

Sevan Matossian (04:29):

That’s okay. That’s me just checking all the millions of dollars I’m making from YouTube memberships. Hold on. I go to where? How do I do this? I go to share screen, entire screen and then to share audio. Share a tab instead. I don’t know.

Chase Ingraham (04:46):


Sevan Matossian (04:49):

I don’t know how to share a tab. If it’s a video,

Chase Ingraham (04:55):

It should pull up in tabs.

Sevan Matossian (04:58):

Even if it’s this. The tab says Jason, clip two.

Chase Ingraham (05:02):

If it on your, is it on your computer screen?

Sevan Matossian (05:06):

It’s sitting on the desktop, but it’s not a tab from a browser.

Chase Ingraham (05:10):

Open it open.

Sevan Matossian (05:13):

Oh, it is open.

Chase Ingraham (05:15):

Then it should open in

Sevan Matossian (05:16):

Tabs. No, it’s just open in QuickTime. Oh, maybe if I do window

Chase Ingraham (05:19):

It open. Yeah, it’s a tab. QuickTime is

Sevan Matossian (05:20):

The tab to share audio. Share a tab instead, but it’s not a tab. Lemme see. Look at this. So you’re telling me if I play the audio on this? You can’t hear it? Listen.

Chase Ingraham (05:34):


Sevan Matossian (05:35):

You can’t hear that?

Chase Ingraham (05:36):


Sevan Matossian (05:37):

Oh, okay. Well, I’m going to do my best now listen to, this is the stuff we’re going to bring you after Waap. You’re not even going to believe this. Jason Hopper is a guy. You want me

Dave Castro (05:44):

To give it a shot?

Sevan Matossian (05:45):

He is a comedic. Oh yeah. You want to try it?

Dave Castro (05:49):

See if you can hear

Sevan Matossian (05:50):

This. Oh, no, not that one though. I don’t want to play that one. Let’s save that one. Oh,

Dave Castro (05:53):

That’s different shit.

Sevan Matossian (05:54):

Yeah. Do you have the other one?

Dave Castro (05:56):

I, no,

Sevan Matossian (06:01):

Hold on. I’ll give it to you.

Dave Castro (06:03):

It’s in the thread. Is this the one you wanted, Han?

Sevan Matossian (06:06):

Yes. That’s the one I wanted. This is

Dave Castro (06:07):

On your screen though. That’s your tab.

Sevan Matossian (06:09):

Oh. Oh, sorry. Yeah,

Dave Castro (06:11):

Try it out.

Sevan Matossian (06:12):

You’re saying I should try it out? Yeah. Oh,

Dave Castro (06:15):

Just to see if they didn’t try the audio on that, did you?

Sevan Matossian (06:18):

Yeah, I did. You guys didn’t. You guys couldn’t hear it here, but here I have an idea. It’s okay. I’m going to do this. I’m going to do window. I’m going to go here. I’m going to go to share. I’m just going to move my microphone down to the audio and hopefully you guys can hear it. Check this out. This is truly incredible stuff that Patrick Rios is getting. No, we won’t believe this. This is a Jason Hopper talking to Jack Farlow. Lemme see if I can get this. And this is at the run event where there’s no footage of this. There’s no footage of this. Don’t make fun of me Hiller. It’s my show. Don’t make fun.

Jay (07:00):

Yeah. Hey Jack. I got some sunscreen, bro. Bro, I got some on brother. Thank you. I just thought I’d ask because I like you. I like you, bro. He’s so pale. He’s so pale. The follow on IG after this,

Sevan Matossian (07:28):

Jay, ask for aback on IG offers after this event. You guys, there’s no cameras there except Patrick Rios broke into the place. Thank you. Tiwa Palooza. Thank you Dylan and Sasha for looking the other way. When Rios is filming, there’s more Wait, there’s more.

Jay (07:46):

Mute every guy I follow. Okay. Alright. Give it 45 minutes. You’ll have one pale.

Sevan Matossian (08:12):

That’s our boy hopper.

Dave Castro (08:15):

Hey, that’s great.

Sevan Matossian (08:16):

Oh, there’s so much of that. Hey,

Dave Castro (08:18):

Wanda, it’s going to be cool. He’s going to put on more follows from stuff like this than he is from going over to HWPO.

Sevan Matossian (08:27):

Hey, there’s only one person to thank for all of this. Not Patrick Rios.

Dave Castro (08:32):

Sarah Cox.

Sevan Matossian (08:33):

Yep. Sarah Cox. Patrick Rios is a close second, but Sarah Cox ca peptides. I can’t wait to see what Jack Farlow looks like when he’s like 25. Oh my goodness.

Dave Castro (08:45):

I can’t wait until he goes on some TRT

Sevan Matossian (08:49):

Gets on the ine

Dave Castro (08:50):

Looks like then I put on like 20 pounds. What’s he going to look like then?

Sevan Matossian (08:53):

This is the Tier Waap Palooza show, but we’re going to take a detour right now. You’ve already seen why you watch this show because now you can know where to get the OG culture closed about how to get all the bodies of the analysts on here. You know that John Young knows about something I said about genitalia, but here we have a problem here. This guy is saying dollar 99 don’t swear, and we’re all like, okay, that’s fair. We will try not to swear. And then Jody Lynn, who I’m extremely loyal to, I’ve been trying to get her phone number so I could send her, I don’t know, nudes or something for all her generous donations. There’s

Dave Castro (09:26):

The misogyny.

Sevan Matossian (09:28):

She wants more misogyny. You

Dave Castro (09:30):

Somehow did it in the message

Sevan Matossian (09:32):

I, that’s a typo

Dave Castro (09:33):

Asking You shall receive

Sevan Matossian (09:34):

For 49. Nine nine. I want to massage something. I want to do more than misogyny. I want to massage something. I think maybe that’s the typo. Then this guy Parker chimes in, continue to swear this is trouble. What a mess this is.

Dave Castro (09:49):

It doesn’t stop there. And then you got Ken Walters asking for Bible verses.

Sevan Matossian (09:54):

Okay. Okay. Then Melanie Hodge says, thank you for the coverage

John Young (10:00):

JY barbell athlete.

Sevan Matossian (10:02):

Yeah, that program’s working.

Dave Castro (10:06):

I think it’s Mey,

Sevan Matossian (10:07):

Whatever. I just see I’ve been

John Young (10:09):

Calling her Melanie. So if that’s true,

Sevan Matossian (10:12):

That’s working. That program’s working and then this. What is this for? Cece’s beautiful ass assault upon ignorant, pseudo intellectual woke fools in yesterday’s event. For recap, show the group discussion regarding bodies was honest, appropriate, and correct. The point is, thank you, by the way. That’s crazy generous donation. There are people who, because they don’t have all the discipline or they don’t want to take the road it takes to extract every last bit of fitness out of the body, they may pivot over to strongman, sorry, or they may pivot over to Olympic lifting, sorry. Or they may pivot over to maybe just endurance sports. This thing not only requires to you to be proficient, all the modal domains and movements and flexibilities and balances, but also at the bottom of that period, people is the diet. And if you’re the greatest CrossFitter ever, but you don’t got your diet right, no one’s ever going to know nobody does anyone? Would anyone like to refute that?

John Young (11:20):

Nope. It’s a base the pyramid for a reason.

Dave Castro (11:22):

Wait a minute, you’re the greatest CrossFitter ever. You don’t have a good diet. No one’s going to know because you’re so jacked.

Sevan Matossian (11:30):

Either way, let’s say you do too much testosterone, no one’s going to know because you’re not going to be able to do the long workouts. You eat a gallon of CODOs every night. It doesn’t matter if you have the greatest metabolic capacity, greatest balance, greatest strength, everything, but you eat four pints of Haagen-Dazs every night before you go to bed. No one’s ever going to know you’re not going to win the game. Problem.

Dave Castro (11:50):

Okay? Asked. Alright. I thought you were saying Rich Vernick can eat pizza at the CrossFit games and no one knows the difference. He

Sevan Matossian (11:56):

Still wins. No, no, no. Every single.

John Young (11:58):

No, no. It’s more like Fraser eats a pin of Ben and Jerry’s every single night and that’s what happens in 2014. And then whenever he doesn’t do that, it’s 2016. Matt Fraser.

Dave Castro (12:07):


Sevan Matossian (12:09):

That’s a true anecdotal story,

Dave Castro (12:10):

Right? Yeah.

Sevan Matossian (12:12):

Yeah. So that’s the thing, and hey guys, let’s just be honest. No one’s eating whatever they want in the CrossFit games. No one has those. Everyone goes to bed a little hungry. Who’s compete? No. Oh, okay. Go ahead. Tell me Hillary.

Dave Castro (12:27):

Everyone here knows who doesn’t abide by those rules.

Sevan Matossian (12:31):

Okay, fine. So we’re just talking. That’s all we’re talking about. And then of course there’s height and there’s height and there’s weight and there’s all the other anthropomorphics and all that stuff. That’s all we’re saying. Ken Walters $5 for more Bible verses for John to share with TDC tonight we got a conflict with the Miami Dolphins game with

Dave Castro (12:53):

TC in the beginning.

John Young (12:56):

Hey, you should tell him to read one Corinthians 1510. That’s my favorite Bible verse.

Dave Castro (13:02):

Remember that? It’s a great

John Young (13:03):

Fifteen ten one Corinthians 1510.

Sevan Matossian (13:06):

Dear Dave, okay, before we go to

Dave Castro (13:11):

Lot of palooza, I’m just curious if you’re still eating rib eyes.

Sevan Matossian (13:15):

Well, I’m still eating a lot of meat, but do you know what I just did? I don’t want to tell you.

John Young (13:19):

Can we talk about a competition eating real quick? I think people get this confused. When you’re in a competition, what people eat in a competition is not what they eat. It’s way different. You’re eating everything in sight at a competition than your regular diet when you’re just training. Would y’all agree with that? To a point like aero low and eat eight pizza and that’s why she lost. It’s

Dave Castro (13:45):

Different. That’s wrong.

John Young (13:47):

It’s way different.

Sevan Matossian (13:50):

Hey, and there’s nuances to it. It’s not like Jessica Valenzuela, the police is saying Kelly Baker had a burger and beer when she thought she was cut from the games and she did a heavy bar barbell complex the next day, Hey, you don’t die. You could drink a coke before every CrossFit event and still win the games. We’re just talking about there is a cumulative effect that you’re looking for in a diet. You want a diet, not a diet like in the 19 80 cents diet, but we’re just talking a regiment of eating that will optimize your performance, muscle growth and all that stuff. And if you don’t do that, no one will ever know how good you are. You’ll never know how good you are.

Dave Castro (14:31):

Yeah, Josh Hamama,

Sevan Matossian (14:35):

But I will tell you this, if you’re juiced to the gills, you can eat a little more pizza and coke.

Dave Castro (14:43):

I got to do it to the gills part. I’m just juiced. I’m not yet a fish, not on

Chase Ingraham (14:50):

The nutritional recommendation from CrossFit. I’ll just amen add out there. As a disclaimer,

Sevan Matossian (14:57):

We’re 39 minutes away from the second event of the Tier Waap Palooza team competition, a super duper high level competition, just like the individual competition was super high level. I do want to ask this been so nice to the tier guys. I apologize in advance, Dylan, why the fuck would an event like Waap Palooza do an offsite event with no cameras? This makes no sense to me because let’s, let’s be honest, you don’t need a well-balanced event. You’re waap palooza rogue. You don’t need a well-balanced event. Dubai, you don’t need a well-balanced event. It makes no sense to me. Wouldn’t you want to bring as many spectators and make as much money and get as many eyeballs at the venue? Why did they do this? I guess it’s a question for Dylan. Does anyone have any ideas? Do you guys agree with me? This doesn’t make any sense.

John Young (15:53):

I agree with you St.

Chase Ingraham (15:54):

Yeah, I agree.

Dave Castro (15:56):

I knew you were going to bring that

Sevan Matossian (15:57):

Up. Oh, you did. We haven’t even talked about this yet. Oh yeah. I’m just tripping on, oh, because this morning I was,

Dave Castro (16:03):

You always bring it up.

Chase Ingraham (16:05):

One reason is athlete experience doing something offsite, something fresh, something new versus running on the beach like they’ve done in the past.

Sevan Matossian (16:13):

I was going to say F the athletes, but I won’t say F the athletes, I’ll say the athletes F the athletes

Chase Ingraham (16:18):

Fair, but for

Sevan Matossian (16:19):

Us, athletes are performing for us. Let us see them bring ’em to the venue. Sorry, chase, I’m trying to

Chase Ingraham (16:25):

Go ahead. Go ahead. I’m sorry. B being, it does alleviate some of the schedule for teams. So you take one event offsite, you can do more while you’re onsite versus cram a couple of small things in. Those are two things I could see of why to do that.

Sevan Matossian (16:40):

Hey, someone said, someone said to make room for the other people. Hey, be creative. Make ’em run just right around the venue in circles and let people film it with their iPhones. Do something that keeps these, I mean, at the end of the day, these are the most famous people in the community.

Dave Castro (17:00):

Yeah. Do shuttle runs for a 5K.

Sevan Matossian (17:04):

Honestly. Yeah, something keep them in the venue. I don’t know why they did it. I hope whatever the reason is, is it benefited the bottom line for them. I don’t think Waap Palooza should be worried about the athletes. I do not. Because at the end of the day, the best way to be worried about the athletes is to bring them closer to the spectators because that at the end of the day, that’s really what the athletes need. They need more spectator interaction. What’s going to keep them flowing?

John Young (17:32):

And it was speculated, we didn’t know how they were going to show it, and I thought they would’ve drones out there watching everybody run and they just didn’t show it at all. But people want to see that they had a staggered start. People want to see people passing each other in a small sand run route corridor, like to pass people up in each corner and talk trash or whatever that people want

Sevan Matossian (17:58):

To, every event is guilty of this. They forget they’re a competition. If you are not racing against someone, it is not a competition. You’re absolutely right. It needs to be an all man start. But for safety, sorry, it’s a competition.

Dave Castro (18:12):

Is the CrossFit open a competition? Yes. Yeah. Score.

Sevan Matossian (18:18):

Yes. Yes. But it is a online competition and Waap Pza is not an online competition. The CrossFit games are not an online competition. Okay. You know what I’m saying? You feel me? I

Dave Castro (18:32):

Got you.

Sevan Matossian (18:34):

If the situation makes it so you have to do it, but Seon, it was a narrow trail

John Young (18:41):

That makes it more fun.

Sevan Matossian (18:43):

He’s just messing with me. I know. He knows. We know. Anyway. Anyway, that being said, Dylan and Sasha gave the team access there and we have great footage for you. And that’s just the tip of the spear, which you saw. We have so many good clips pouring in of amazing stuff. You guys are going to be stoked. Rios and Bella are killing it and Hopper and Down are giving us what they want. It’ll be interesting to see if Ricky talks Ricky’s on that team too.

John Young (19:10):

I was told that he had the fastest 5K time by over 60 seconds.

Sevan Matossian (19:14):

Wow. Crazy. Okay, I’m going to bring up the leaderboard and give the boys. We’ve had, they’ve had a day to process this information. Ricky Gerard won the $75,000 with four 40. Then Brent Falkowski, then Samwell Quant, then Patrick Vellner, Jack Farlow, Samwell, corny, and sixth James Sprague and seventh Roman Koff and eighth ninth Guiro, 10th. Spencer Panache. We will be talking about the interesting Panache thing that’s going on during the team event. Hiller, anything new pop into your head over the night? Any new thoughts regarding these top 10 guys or anyone in the competition?

Dave Castro (19:53):

I was informed that Sam Kant’s coach is not Harry Paley. I kept on saying that it was

Sevan Matossian (19:59):

Oh, okay.

Dave Castro (20:00):

Someone Stu Fa. I think it’s Stu Fa. I think it’s Callie. I thought it was Pally too, but apparently it’s not. Oh no, I just mean how you say it. Oh no, it’s Paley.

Sevan Matossian (20:15):

So this guy Paley was his coach at CompTrain. Then he went to work for HWPO. So you just assumed since Quant was at CompTrain, he would’ve gotten the same coach.

Dave Castro (20:25):


Sevan Matossian (20:26):

Do we know that? He for sure was Sam Quan’s coach when he was at CompTrain. Do we know that? Yes. Yes. Okay. Well that’s weird, isn’t it?

Dave Castro (20:32):

It is weird. Yeah,

John Young (20:33):

It is weird.

Sevan Matossian (20:34):

Why would he switch to Steve Faucet?

Dave Castro (20:36):

I dunno. Apparently it worked.

Sevan Matossian (20:38):

I think Steve Faucet used to be an athlete. I think I remember that name. He was close to being elite. Super elite.

Dave Castro (20:44):

When you say faucet, it reminds me of a sink. When I say facet, it reminds me of a French man.

Sevan Matossian (20:50):

Me too. I agree. When I say faucet though, it reminds me of Farrah Faucet, the super hot chick from the eighties.

Dave Castro (20:57):

Now I’m going to think of that too.

Sevan Matossian (20:59):

Oh, there you go.

Dave Castro (21:00):

Faucet was on C, p, D.

Sevan Matossian (21:03):

What else? What’s going on with Romanoff? Did you hear the interview this morning on shut up and scribble? When they asked Lockhart about Romans, excuse me, performance.

Dave Castro (21:13):

God, I did, but I don’t remember what he said

John Young (21:15):

About it. I didn’t hear it. What did he say?

Sevan Matossian (21:19):

He said he wasn’t Roman’s coach. He said he was Samuel’s coach. He said he didn’t get to talk to Roman much. He did say that Roman wasn’t maybe every, you can’t be on every single weekend and that maybe this wasn’t Roman’s best performance. He just kind of felt around in the dark with it. Do we know, is this his lowest?

John Young (21:40):

He got fifth at Rogue. What? Did he come in eighth? Yeah, I think so.

Dave Castro (21:46):

I watched the May it That’s what I watched, the Mayhem video. That’s what I was thinking of. And now whenever Rosa talks, I just don’t think what she’s telling us is the truth.

Sevan Matossian (21:55):

Mayhem Hass already put out a video from Waap Palooza.

Dave Castro (21:58):

Yeah, it was premiering at the same time and showed up and scribble. So I was bouncing and I know that Roman was there talking. He walks out after the row event and he goes, stupid rower. He said it straight up and then they panned over to Rosa and he goes, yeah, he just isn’t feeling his best self at the moment. And I’m like, come on.

Sevan Matossian (22:21):

Any surprises here in this placement? I think for me the big surprise and pleasant surprise is Farlow just the highest in Farlow kind of present at a big meet like this.

John Young (22:33):

Yeah. Farlow and Sprague both I think had amazing weekends and I’m very excited to see them in the CrossFit games in 2024. I think those two both are going to continue to improve and jump forward in their fitness

Sevan Matossian (22:51):

Chase. They have data points now, right? James Sprague has now a data point. I beat Roman Koff in a super high level event. I beat a guy who’s a podium. I beat a guy who probably people say should have won the CrossFit games in 2023. That means I can win the CrossFit games. I mean, there’s a little bit of algebra there.

Chase Ingraham (23:12):

Well, there’s confidence. And you take a young kid like Sprague, who’s rookie season last year as an elite individual at the CrossFit games after missing it the year before Heartbreakingly, and then to have success in the lift, right? Breaking through that glass ceiling of I always screw up a lift and I’ve done it for eight years now. I was successful and then I built upon that success and I beat Roman. Those little things add up. So if you’re talking about that kind of algebra as far as leaning towards a great off season into the new season, and I think this is huge for someone like Sprague, who you can tell feeds off of that positive energy in a massive way. So yeah, I think this is huge for James.

John Young (23:49):

I don’t think he thought, I always screw up the lift. I think he was like, I’ve always been weak and now I’m not weak.

Chase Ingraham (23:57):

I mean, he said he’d always screwed up the lift.

John Young (23:59):

Well, because you’re weak.

Chase Ingraham (24:01):

Well, it doesn’t matter. The reason that we give him, it’s the matter of the self-talk he’s giving himself. If he says, I always screw up the lift and I have been for eight years, and now he gets something positive, then yeah, it doesn’t matter what the level of screw up is, if he thinks he always screws

Sevan Matossian (24:15):

Up the lift.

John Young (24:16):

Well, James, I don’t think you’ve always screwed up the lift. I think you’re just stronger now. There’s a difference there. I

Sevan Matossian (24:21):

See what you’re saying, John. I think that they can mutually exist. Here’s who I think has had the worst takeaway of the week. You guys tell me what’s going on, Nick

John Young (24:30):


Sevan Matossian (24:31):

Yep. And listen, he’s got these fucking washed up people. He’s got these suckers like Austin Hatfield and Harry Lightfoot and who the fuck is cj? Gerald

John Young (24:44):

Had an amazing competition.

Sevan Matossian (24:45):

CJ Harald is fucking 11th. He just put it Nick Matthew’s. The real deal

Dave Castro (24:52):


Sevan Matossian (24:52):

Was dude, he’s the real deal. He commands the stage. He took fucking 19th. Dude. I

Dave Castro (24:59):

Love Nick Matthew, dude. But

Chase Ingraham (25:00):

Yeah, he’s my kind friend right now.

John Young (25:03):

I don’t think puffing up was the right call.

Sevan Matossian (25:07):

Oh, you guys are giving him the misogyny treatment. You guys are being misogynistic. Oh yeah.

Chase Ingraham (25:12):

Here we go. Let’s talk about bodies. Right Nick? Matthew does not need to gain any weight or lift anymore.

Sevan Matossian (25:19):

You think he looked thick in the core? You think he looked thick in the core guy? Heavy.

John Young (25:24):

Nate, I would just not touch another barbell your whole entire rest of the year.

Chase Ingraham (25:28):

Nick and I don’t mean that in terms of

Sevan Matossian (25:30):

Aesthetic. You’re saying he has too much fat on his stomach though. That’s what you’re saying. You’re saying he looks a little,

Chase Ingraham (25:35):

He is like he’s barreled up. He’s like the old Matt Chan. Like Matt Chan was a barrel, but he was just lean as all get out. But Matthew, the dude can back squat. What, 500 pounds for three to five reps? That guy doesn’t need to lift. Like John said, he shouldn’t touch a heavy bar for the rest of the year until there’s a max at semifinals or there’s a thick Matthew a max at the cross. The games. What he needs to do is he needs to go the Adler route, which is you should be running gymnastics, lose 10 to 15 pounds. If you want to be serious in this sport, then you need to switch things up a bit and start focusing on what’s going to make you a better overall CrossFitter. And it’s not lifting a barbell anymore until it demands you in competition.

Sevan Matossian (26:18):

What makes you say he has been doing that? Have you heard that? Or just by looking at it. We don’t get that.

Chase Ingraham (26:24):

You don’t get,

John Young (26:25):

He’s posted lips on Instagram recently of successful. This is the strongest I’ve ever been. That’s cool. This is the least bit you’ve ever been to. Got it. The

Chase Ingraham (26:34):

Last day. Just hosting videos of me swimming in a pool. Swimming pool doing five Ks. Look how fast. I was like, yep. But can you lift three 15 off the I

John Young (26:44):

Do. I think we look at this stuff a little differently.

Chase Ingraham (26:46):

This is insane. This is so strong.

Dave Castro (26:48):

Five Red Max at 500 pounds. October.

John Young (26:51):

Chase, chase. Think how ridiculous it would seem if in 2013 you posted just prd my 500 meter swim, getting it in like,

Sevan Matossian (27:02):

Oh, look what Hiller wrote. And Hiller wrote 14 weeks ago. What’s your mile time? Holy shit. Holy

Dave Castro (27:12):


Sevan Matossian (27:13):

Holy shit, dude. You see that? Well, everyone know. All his competitors are like, good job buddy. Keep it up. What’s Coach Hiller? Fitz, what’s your mile time? Did he

John Young (27:24):


Sevan Matossian (27:25):

No. Oh, did he?

Dave Castro (27:26):

He didn’t. Oh he did. He did. He did. Last time I tested it. Oh wait, 5 24. Yeah, last time. What was that last

John Young (27:33):

Time I tested it? It was six months ago.

Sevan Matossian (27:37):

That’s pretty good. Hey, look at how big his ass and quads are. He’s a

Dave Castro (27:41):

Hammer. He said he’s been doing Shaw aerobic capacity program for the last two months. So we got both hinshaw and proven. Two of my favorite people really help Nick out over here.

Sevan Matossian (27:53):


Chase Ingraham (27:55):

But he should just train to do the 500 squat and sub five minute mile on the same six days

John Young (27:59):

Ago, him and Olivia should be on the same program from here on out to 2024 Onpro.

Dave Castro (28:05):

Dude, this is wicked. And the squat man. It’s wild. That’s an easy 365. That’s about 365.

Chase Ingraham (28:15):

That’s probably what, 3 15, 3 30 or 3 0 5.

Dave Castro (28:19):

Is this proven?

Sevan Matossian (28:22):

Is that Maddie Stewart behind him? Hey, that may have been proven. I think Jay works out there so I wouldn’t be surprised if Maddie was there. Hey, let me ask you this real quick. Go back to the beginning of that clip. Is that safe to be doing a snatch? Like what if he goes back and drops it on that bike is, what do you think about that?

John Young (28:36):

No, you got confidence when it’s lightweight like that.

Sevan Matossian (28:39):


Dave Castro (28:40):

Yeah, it’s two 15. He’s cool.

Sevan Matossian (28:44):


John Young (28:46):

And you can,

Sevan Matossian (28:49):

So we have people like Jack Farlow who are walking away here with penis, grew two inches. And Nick Matthews probably shriveled up a little bit.

John Young (28:56):

I’ll say the difference. There was comments when Jack Barlow was snatching and he snatched two 80 and they’re like two 80 WTF Barlow. They thought he’d be way stronger and he got fifth in the whole freaking competition. And then you got, gee, who’s the strongest he’s ever been, Matthew, who’s the strongest he’s ever been. Those guys are going to continue to go down the leaderboard as the years progress and the furloughs of the world who are weaker now. And maybe he’s not weaker, but he’s not stronger. I know That will continue to get up the leaderboard.

Chase Ingraham (29:29):

Well then he gets what second place for time? Part of deja vu Farlow does. He wasn’t doing that last year. He was winning the clean and jerk and now it’s got what, two 80 And where did that put ’em? Fourth, third, fourth or third. Yeah. Yeah. Fourth in the lift at two 80. Oh, excuse me, I sorry. I didn’t beat Gee, but then I went and got second place in Deja Vu two or part B. That’s the whole point. You can lose 5% off your max list and you will.
