TYR Wodapalooza // Event 4 PREVIEW

Sevan Matossian (00:01):

Jay Harle. Bam. I’m fasting today. Not sure if I want to keep going or just do meat. Keep going. That’s just your brain making of bullshit. Aaron Rogers a man’s man. No, BSS can’t be bought. Hey, I did see, I haven’t watched it yet because I’ve been watching so much Waap Palooza stuff, but Aaron Rogers is on the toss podcast. Doing what? And Tosh Point. Oh, you know who Tosh Point oh is? Remember that show? Tosh Point? Oh, he’s my favorite comedian by far. I think he’s the best comedian alive. I think he’s better than Chappelle. I know he is. I don’t think

Dave Castro (00:37):

I just watched one that I thought you’d like, but then again, you don’t like recommendations?

Sevan Matossian (00:41):

No, no. I like recommendations. I want to see the new Chappelle, not Chap. Chap,

Dave Castro (00:45):

Not Chappelle. There’s some foreign dude. He’s Irish that just put it on Netflix. Crazy.

Sevan Matossian (00:52):

Oh shit. To was just talking about Aaron Rogers. Aaron wasn’t on it. Oh, that sucks. Click bait. That’s something Hiller would do to me.

Dave Castro (01:02):

Hiller, how dare you? Is Ricky dva? Did you see the new Ricky dva?

Sevan Matossian (01:06):

Oh, so good.

Dave Castro (01:08):

So good. So I figured you’d like it. I’m glad you did.

Sevan Matossian (01:11):

I like Ricky’s. Just Star Power Ricky. There’s people that I could just watch on stage no matter what or just shit, no matter what the shit they’re doing. You know who else I like? I’m embarrassed to say, who’s the guy who had the court case, the divorce. He makes so many big divorce. Johnny Deb. Yeah, Johnny Depp. He makes so many shitty movies, but I could just watch anything he does. Will Smith. Yeah, will Smith. Who’s the Denzel? Johnny Depp. There’s just dudes. I just like,

Dave Castro (01:38):

Did you just watch Equalizer three?

Sevan Matossian (01:40):

Yeah, I loved it. Even though a shitty movie. Yeah, I didn’t like that. Or Training Day. But I like it just because they’re in it. I like that one movie, the Denzel’s where he flies the plane upside down even though it’s so crazy.

Dave Castro (01:54):

It’s called Flight

Sevan Matossian (01:56):

Flight. I just like in the beginning, he’s banging one of the stewardess in the hotel room high on Coke. It just looks so fun. Okay, welcome to the Tier. Tier Guap. Pza 2024. Tier. Tier. Tier. Tier. I just bought the, I just bought Did you actually? Yeah, I just

Dave Castro (02:13):

Ordered. I thought you were kidding when you said that.

Sevan Matossian (02:15):

No, no. I just ordered the tier Men’s DZ one drop zero Barefoot Trainer. How can you not if this shoe really works? Let me show you this. Oh my God. Look at fucking Caleb’s Strutt his shit. Oh, look at me pushing Caleb’s dick out of the way. If you got these. Yeah, well, I don’t have ’em, but I ordered them. They’re cheap. How nice are those? How nice are you got

Dave Castro (02:45):

’em in this color? Red

Sevan Matossian (02:47):

And black. Yeah, this one? Yeah. Yeah. Black and red.

Dave Castro (02:50):

They look quite,

Sevan Matossian (02:51):

I hope I like them. God, I

Dave Castro (02:53):

Hope I like them look like the vivo ones and people really like vivo shoes.

Sevan Matossian (02:58):

Anyway, which brings me to the next thing. Andrew Hiller posted something on his Instagram and what’s interesting, so last night, late at night, I go through and I try to watch everything that everyone’s done on Waap Palooza and I did watch the Lone Ranger podcast with Tommy and Tonto and the Lone Ranger and the Ksi and what’s interesting is I did notice that they’re pushing this Reebok shit nano X seven J four and I’m just like, why are they doing that? This is a tier event and we all know Dylan. So for those of you we’re all a family, even though we got uncles we don’t like and aunts that are inappropriate and fucking, we got a woke sector. Sector woke

Dave Castro (03:50):

Big Jesse,

Sevan Matossian (03:52):

How can you be going to, could you be going to Waap Palooza be the voice of Waap Palooza when they know it’s Pivotal? Waap Palooza, the existence of Waap Palooza is pivotal on sponsors and how could you

Dave Castro (04:09):

Know if you had to guess how much do they get paid to be the broadcasters there?

Sevan Matossian (04:15):

Yeah, 5,000 bucks. 2,500 bucks. Yeah,

Dave Castro (04:18):

You receive money and then you go and promote it for a competitor.

Sevan Matossian (04:22):

Yeah, for no apparent reason. It’s not like what did Tier do that’s upsetting you so much? What did they do? Were they on Epstein Island? I’m like, why the fuck can’t you just tuck your tail between your legs for a couple days, help Dylan get this fucking thing off the ground so it’s successful. We can move this shit over to Southern California and Party hard in Del Mar for the September event that Waterloo is doing there. Anyway, this is so disappointing. Anyway, let’s play this video that Andrew posted on Instagram a few minutes ago. Here we go.

Dave Castro (04:54):


Dave Castro (04:54):

Palooza. They deserve to get a bone thrown because they’ve done two things right? They fixed deja vu and they also fixed Arturo getting kicked out of the last second. They’ve done what they need to do to get a bone throw, so everyone should go and melt talking Elite Fitness because talking Elite Fitness will not stop promoting Reebok and everyone’s probably thinking, Andrew, what’s the big deal? Well, they’re the broadcast team, Tommy, Sean, Lauren and Brian that you hear that on the fricking YouTube channel left, right and center in every chain.

Sevan Matossian (05:20):

So hold on, pause that. Lemme say something. So they’re leveraging what Tier is paying for because tier’s paying for the broadcast, they’re leveraging the fucking broadcast that tier is paying for and that Dylan has hired them to do. I wonder what Dylan thinks about this. I wonder if he’s cool with it. I can’t imagine if he is, he needs to grow a set, slap him around.

Dave Castro (05:40):

I’ll come down there. I’ll start broadcasting. It might be a little different, but I’ll bring a little bit more animation than the PGA tour. I’ll tell you that much. I think

John Young (05:47):

Me and Hillary need to be the broadcast team next year.

Dave Castro (05:50):

Be Wicked.

John Young (05:52):

I think that’s what needs to

Sevan Matossian (05:52):

Happen. You should get Gruer or Taylor too. It would be

Dave Castro (05:57):

Great. I think it’d be cool to have seven on the broadcast team.

Sevan Matossian (06:00):

No, no, I’m good. I’m good right here. Thank you though. I’m good.

Dave Castro (06:04):

K for a hundred.

Sevan Matossian (06:07):

It is unacceptable that they’re leveraging what Tier is paying for. It’s the same thing with people who are like, why isn’t Rad allowed there? Dude tier is paying for this tear Waterloo, they’re paying for it.

Dave Castro (06:19):

Did you see what I made the analogy about having a bunch of ribs. Hey guys are making ribs, come on over and they walk in with filet mignon and crab legs and then all of a sudden your ribs are useless. It’s like you’ve got your house, you invited everybody over, you’re having ribs. It’s like, fuck off. Get your fucking shit out of here. I told you to bring a side like corn or broccoli or potatoes. Cut

Sevan Matossian (06:40):

It off. Hey, what’s worse is though is if you bring cake, they know you’re a fucking a carnivore house and they bring cake to you. It’s like, what are you doing? Seriously? I wonder why they’re doing it. There must be something going on that we don’t know, but it’s almost like they hate water palooza and they want it to fail. Or they hate Dylan. They hate someone. They hate something. There’s no excuse.

Dave Castro (07:01):

There’s no

Sevan Matossian (07:01):

Excuse for doing that. And hey, how many pairs of Reeboks do you think that they’re selling?

Dave Castro (07:06):

Not many

Sevan Matossian (07:07):

Goose egg.

Dave Castro (07:07):

They’re selling more now because we’re talking about it.

Sevan Matossian (07:10):

Goose egg.

Dave Castro (07:11):

That’s the issue.

Sevan Matossian (07:13):

Yeah, it’s disappointing. Tier needs to give you a live feed and compete against the Lone Ranger podcast with you all sitting in the basement. Dude, you want to see an amazing show. You got to see the show that Will and JR and Taylor put together that morning show. Dude, they’re onto something. That show is wild.

Dave Castro (07:34):

Dude. I like the section where they’d go, will is like the guy or they had Brooke Wells is the girl at the party. It was pretty funny. That’s what bad. And she says she’s got a boyfriend. I think that was it. It was funny.

Sevan Matossian (07:49):

Let’s pull that up. I think that’s at the 27 minute mark in this morning’s. Shut up and scribble on the Savon podcast. It is a great it bit. The whole show is good though. Will’s just awesome. Will’s on it.

Dave Castro (08:07):

He’s animated. He is on it.

Sevan Matossian (08:09):

And I like the couch. You got the two athletes and experts on one side. Then you got Will in the middle and then you got Pedro who looks like, what was that white rap group from the eighties?

John Young (08:18):

Marky Mark and the Pucky

Sevan Matossian (08:19):

Bunch? No, no. They had the four guys, the four Jews, the four Jews, four Jewish dudes from oh,

Dave Castro (08:25):

The Beastie Boys.

Sevan Matossian (08:26):

Beastie Boys Beast. Yeah. Yeah. Pedro is like the new Beastie Boys he’s got with his hat on and shit. Are you

John Young (08:32):

Impressed with my musical recollection

Sevan Matossian (08:34):

There, dude? Crazy. I’ve been trying to think of that all morning Beastie Boys. Fuck.

Dave Castro (08:38):

Oh, cave Astro.

Sevan Matossian (08:41):

I wonders. Did you watch Al Chama Al Chama on Coffee Pods and Watts today? No, not yet. Is it good? Hold on, let’s play this and then we’ll go

Dave Castro (08:50):

Toma. It’s

Sevan Matossian (08:52):

Alright. Okay, here we go. Here we go.

Will Branstetter (08:55):

Means we’re going to move to Cap or no cap.

Sevan Matossian (08:58):

Echo. And of course I gave the wrong time code to fucking Caleb. Here we go. Maybe 10 seconds ahead. Do

Will Branstetter (09:05):

We have caps? What? I have no cap words and she says I have a boyfriend party. Just kidding. I can read it for you.

Dave Castro (09:14):

Okay, we’ll bring it up. We’ll bring

Will Branstetter (09:15):

It up. Brooke Wells looks like the girl at a party that you asked where the bathroom is and she says, I have a boyfriend.

Sevan Matossian (09:22):


Dave Castro (09:22):


Sevan Matossian (09:23):

Oh. Oh

Dave Castro (09:25):

Shit. He’s got to turn that into a, he’s got to record that and just post it onto Instagram just like that. Yeah, yeah. He needs,

Sevan Matossian (09:34):

Oh shit.

Dave Castro (09:34):

Will. That’s 20,000 views on an Instagram reel.

Sevan Matossian (09:37):

Hey, isn’t that funny When you say something, I had something happen like that a couple days yesterday. I said something to someone to try to help them out and they responded with this totally off the wall comment. What? I’m like, I don’t want to say exactly what it is, but I said someone like, Hey, your shoe’s untied. And then the person looked at me and goes, oh, now you want my attention. You

Dave Castro (09:56):

Got Austin Hatfield.

Sevan Matossian (09:59):

No, your shoe’s untied.

Dave Castro (10:01):

No, I don’t want you. Keep it up

Will Branstetter (10:02):

For Brian Spin.

Sevan Matossian (10:03):

Give you guys a humble manipulation of my, okay, now we’re totally off. I

Will Branstetter (10:08):

Finish higher than Colton Burton’s,

Sevan Matossian (10:11):

Kayla, we can hear all that.

Caleb Beaver (10:12):

Oh shit,

Dave Castro (10:13):


Sevan Matossian (10:16):

Look at Kayla. Put the CEO beanie on and it just goes to shit. Okay, we’re off script now. We got a lot to go through, but let’s go off script. What happened this morning on Coffee Pods and Wads with El Chama?

Dave Castro (10:27):

Yeah, I haven’t seen this either.

Sevan Matossian (10:30):

Oh, look at this. Whitney Davis. He’s alchemy’s off his rocker. What happened?

Dave Castro (10:34):

Oh, I’m not the one who noticed it.

Sevan Matossian (10:36):

Oh yeah. Look it Pedro was reeling when Al Chaney said some shit was Pedro around. Let’s get him on. What the fuck happened?

Dave Castro (10:43):

Can we play it?

Sevan Matossian (10:45):

We don’t know what the,

Dave Castro (10:46):

I’m going to slam in Bryce Smith style

Sevan Matossian (10:49):

Time code trauma. Oh really? He shit the bed like that I like,

Dave Castro (10:54):

But he a got wacky when he had a kid apparently. What did he say?

Sevan Matossian (11:00):

What happened?

Caleb Beaver (11:01):

He said we should bring Coke into the space. He drinks coke all the time and he says it’s in moderation. It’s cool. I love Coke. It’s cool.

Dave Castro (11:12):

He sha on Pedro for his lifestyle of eating. There’s no way you can have all sugar. You need to do things in moderation. You’re screwed, dude. It’s like dude

Sevan Matossian (11:21):

As pounding gumming. Alright, good. All that’s fun. El Chama. Hey, you know what I think he

Dave Castro (11:26):

Take, how did Pedro respond?

Sevan Matossian (11:27):

I’ve seen that guy almost naked. He can handle a fucking fabulous as

Dave Castro (11:31):

Pound I he. Yeah. Pedro was good to getting as pounded.

Sevan Matossian (11:35):

No, no, not Pedro El Jammy.

Dave Castro (11:39):

We’ll see how he is to getting as pounded.

Sevan Matossian (11:43):

You guys, the behind the scenes, episode four is coming out Monday. Get your membership now if you want to see it early. If not, just hang tight. Sign up for the CrossFit Open. It is going to be a huge open this year. This is the year you want to be. Make sure you want to be a part of this open. It is going to be a massive, massive event. This is going to be the biggest open in CrossFit games history. And I’m also excited to tell you that on Saturday evening, Dave Castro will be in the studio. He’s actually going to be sitting over there, but it looks better if I point over here and I will open the phone lines and we can ask him whatever the fuck we want about the CrossFit games. So that’s going to be exciting. And then of course then we’ll finish the last day Sunday of Waap Waza also. Oh, there it is.

Dave Castro (12:35):

The Coke scene.

Sevan Matossian (12:36):

Geez, you got it all queued up already, Caleb. Yeah, this is when it starts. All right, here we go.

Speaker 7 (12:43):

Well, think of it like this. How do we grow the sport of CrossFit? What we don’t grow it by just constantly working with those same brands that are in the business. We need to bring new people in. I agree. I’m also someone, I know CrossFit might hate me for saying this. There’s this whole war on soda. Let’s bring in Coca-Cola. Let’s bring in these brands because at the end of the day, I think there’s a difference between competition and getting athletes paid health and fitness, right? When you look at other elite sports, no one that plays flag football is like, I’m going to make it to the NFL. They go out and play with their buddies and have some fun. It can be the same in CrossFit. We can all have fun in the communities, but there is an elite side to it and we need those elite fans. Okay,

Sevan Matossian (13:23):

Pause. So what’s he saying? He’s saying it’s okay to sell out and sell poison to little kids in order to grow the sport. He’s saying it’s okay. What LeBron is doing, selling Sprite to little black kids across the country who have the highest and most likely chance of behavioral issues already because of their socioeconomic conditions and getting diabetes. He’s saying it’s okay. He hates black people. Oh, that was algebra I just said right there.

Dave Castro (13:51):


Sevan Matossian (13:52):

Listen, I love taking their money. I have no issue taking their money. But to say that it’s good for you.

Dave Castro (13:57):

Look at Peter’s

Sevan Matossian (13:58):

Face. Basically what they’re doing is they’re buying these people. They’re buying these people to shut the fuck up. LeBron is not free. LeBron’s on the plantation he’s owned. He can’t say Sprite is horrible for you. Don’t drink it. He can’t. It’s in the contract. He can’t. But I say they’re fucking money, but be honest.

Dave Castro (14:18):

So they’re like talking of the fitness. They’re on the plantation.

Sevan Matossian (14:22):

Yeah. I don’t know

Dave Castro (14:24):


Sevan Matossian (14:25):

Yeah, well I saw a whoop commercial the other day with the lady from God Whoop is so ghetto. God, ghet is whoop circling the bowl.

Dave Castro (14:35):

No, I wouldn’t say it’s anywhere near as bad as Noble. Why do you ask

Sevan Matossian (14:46):

Black John Young? LeBron built a school though he can do no wrong. Yeah. I don’t know if you know, but the school’s been open for three years now and not a single child there can pass the state math exam. Did you know that? Not a single child

John Young (15:01):


Sevan Matossian (15:02):

Yet. Sorry. Yet that’s not

John Young (15:03):

Fair. I’m great at math.

Sevan Matossian (15:06):

You’re not going to the LeBron School. Okay, keep going. Well, let’s see what else El Chami says. I like El Chami. Let’s go.

Dave Castro (15:12):

I do too. Did

Speaker 7 (15:14):

That’s a whole nother conversation. I’m not sure. Coca-Cola is the answer. That’s a whole nother conversation. I only say that because I love Diet Coke,

Speaker 8 (15:20):

But I think as well, I’ve heard a lot of people say that I love

Sevan Matossian (15:22):

Diet Coke too.

Speaker 8 (15:23):

If you’re talking about health and fitness, that athletes aren’t healthy. They have to eat different things. They have to because of the amount of calories they have to consume because of the way they

Speaker 7 (15:31):

Have to live their life. But why isn’t a can of Coke healthy?

Speaker 8 (15:35):


Sevan Matossian (15:36):

Moderation, right? Oh, fight.

Speaker 7 (15:38):

You’re constantly drinking Coca-Cola over and over again. Maybe not, but what’s to say? I mean, do you go and grab a donut sometimes or we all do these things? I think we just try and pretend we don’t, but we do.

Sevan Matossian (15:52):

He’s gone off fan. I think it’s

Speaker 7 (15:53):

Okay to say, I think where we’re having a big problem right now in health and fitness in general, not just CrossFit, is there’s this whole play on, you can only do this. Well, there’s no such thing as good or bad foods. It’s just moderation. It’s how you handle it. And I think you should be educated.

Sevan Matossian (16:08):

Oh shit.

Dave Castro (16:10):

Anyone supporting this is an idiot, including whatever this says. There’s no consideration deserved in this maybe to 1 million foot degree where you’re looking down, it’s like, yeah, brands outside of the space look good. Coke absolutely not sugar. He said again, a Coke is good. Are you kidding me?

Sevan Matossian (16:31):

A little bit? No, dude. Listen.

Dave Castro (16:34):

How is it bad for you? Pedro, tell

Sevan Matossian (16:37):

Me. Hey, I’m

Dave Castro (16:39):

Fuck you.

Sevan Matossian (16:40):

I’m okay if you drink Coke. I’m okay if you drink Diet Coke. I’d fucking okay with whatever you do. Yes. But to come on here and say that it’s good for you, you’re a fucking idiot.

Dave Castro (16:48):

Straight upset. It’s good for you.

Sevan Matossian (16:50):

Yeah, you’re retarded.

John Young (16:52):

Yeah. That’s pretty rough.

Dave Castro (16:53):

You should,

Sevan Matossian (16:54):

Speaking of retarded Chase, welcome to the show. Oh,

Dave Castro (16:57):


John Young (16:58):

Listen, I’ve been known to have a Dr. B every now and again and Chase will be the only one who knows where that is. But this is pretty rough

Dave Castro (17:08):

From the boys. Isn’t that the formula that makes ’em superheroes compound.

John Young (17:13):

That’s B, that’s compound B.

Sevan Matossian (17:15):

Let’s focus on the positive. Coca-Cola is good for washing bloodstains off the concrete. If you cap someone in your fucking front yard, El CHAM’s audio is fucking amazing. And you two can watch this entire video at coffee pods and wads. Now that Chase is here, let’s get down to business. All of the work. There’s it’s on Pedro. I’m sorry, what?

John Young (17:37):

There’s a part where he shits on Pedro.

Sevan Matossian (17:39):

Okay, keep going. Look at C Beaver hating on, for people who don’t know, beaver and Pedro have a beef, huge beef. They hate each other. So any chance Beaver can get, he wants to shit on Pedro,

Dave Castro (17:51):

Kind of like a mongoose and a snake in the same room. It’s wild.

Sevan Matossian (17:54):

We can’t even let them alone in the chat together. Someone has to be watching the chat 24 hours, the locker room, beaver and Pedro will get in a fight.

Speaker 7 (18:02):

It’s okay to have that, but what else are you doing to combat it?

Sevan Matossian (18:08):

Stop. Look, he doesn’t call Pedro fat boy, does he?

Caleb Beaver (18:11):


Sevan Matossian (18:12):

Okay, just checking. That wouldn’t be cool.

Caleb Beaver (18:15):


John Young (18:15):

No. Damn.

Speaker 7 (18:16):

Oh man. An athlete. I love competing at the highest level. If you said to me you can’t eat chocolate almonds ever again, I’d probably say, but then I can’t be an athlete. I love it that much.

Speaker 8 (18:25):


Speaker 7 (18:27):

I can’t do a per,

Speaker 8 (18:28):

I just really disagree. But yeah, no, I take your point. It’s just different. I suppose my thing is, especially since recently, as close as I can, sticking to the a hundred words of do you know no sugar? No. You know what I mean? And

Speaker 7 (18:42):

How long are you going to be able to do that for the rest of your life? You’re going to fall off.

Speaker 8 (18:47):

I dunno. I’m doing pretty well at the minute, but yeah, I think, I dunno.

John Young (18:53):

He’s got Peter, man. Peter doesn’t know what to say.

Sevan Matossian (18:57):

Hey. Hey, listen. Oh, look at this. Look at the Mason Mitchell. Pedro isn’t fat. Oh, Pedro is semi fat. Jesus criming you guys. Wow. Uncalled for gentlemen to be talking about his shirt size. Hey, just because you’re going to fall off doesn’t mean you don’t try anything. Elra has no chance of going individual to the games. It doesn’t mean he shouldn’t try.

Caleb Beaver (19:19):

He’d rather do college.

Dave Castro (19:20):

No, no. He straight up says he doesn’t want to try. He knows his lane. He says it in that podcast. I know. He’d

Caleb Beaver (19:25):

Rather do Calvin Klein photo shoots than go

Sevan Matossian (19:26):

Individual. Listen that team, they’ll never win a team competition again without Jorge Fernandez. But doesn’t mean they shouldn’t try.

Caleb Beaver (19:35):

They definitely would’ve won if they let him kick off Devin Kim, the week before the games.

Sevan Matossian (19:39):

Yeah, there you go. No, don’t

Dave Castro (19:39):

Worry. They roped her back in. They said that in the podcast too. He realized that he needs her.

Sevan Matossian (19:46):

My wife’s cleaning company uses Coca-Cola as Ken Walters owner of more than 1000, sorry, 1 million baseball trading cards. They use Coca-Cola to clean toilets. It’s better than anything. Now imagine what that’s eating away when it’s in your body. Excuse me. Oh my goodness. The comments are getting crazy. Okay, let’s move on. Hey, Noah Olson’s dad has a gym near the facility. It’s called Wynwood, I believe. And Taylor Self has been going there in the morning and running classes in these classes are packed in their dope. And I’ve been getting so much great feedback on them. If you want to check out that gym, I heard Noah’s dad’s the shit too. I heard he’s as cool as shit. Just an older version of Noah. And you can go over. You got blocked by Al Chami talking. Oh, the Lone Ranger podcast blocked you. Yeah,

John Young (20:36):

Just now.

Dave Castro (20:37):


John Young (20:39):

Are they listening?

Sevan Matossian (20:40):

They blocked Joe Cock. Everyone listens to Hiller.

John Young (20:44):

My parents went to one of those classes that Taylor’s gym or Noah dads.

Dave Castro (20:49):

Yeah. I didn’t mean to cut off Noah’s Taylor’s

Sevan Matossian (20:51):

Building. Yeah, how was that? How was that? No, no. We’re an a DD show. We’re good. Oh, here it is. Okay. Shit. Your dad sent this.

John Young (21:00):

No, this is on the video. It’s on my mom’s story though. Her time at the gym.

Sevan Matossian (21:06):

You don’t want your mom’s IG up here. Lemme tell you. The other day I saw my mom in the chat and I thought it was my mom until my mom commented. I love reverse cowgirl. I’m like, oh fuck, Rosemary.

John Young (21:16):

But they loved it.

Sevan Matossian (21:17):

Your mom loves reverse cowgirl too. No,

John Young (21:19):

Stop. Savon.

Sevan Matossian (21:20):

Sorry. Sorry. Oh, it was weird. Our wires got

John Young (21:22):

Crossed. Come on. Now our wires.

Sevan Matossian (21:25):

Okay, so if you want to work out with Taylor self there you go over there and meet Noah’s dad and probably run into some famous people. I want to just go through some things really quick here. Women’s dumbbell weight and men’s dumbbell weight was lowered yesterday. Was that necessary? Chase?

Chase Ingraham (21:45):

I’ll be honest, when I first saw it, I thought, oh, that sucks. It’s taking away a part of it. But then when I looked at people afterwards, I was like, oh, maybe it wasn’t that bad of an idea. I mean, that dumbbell didn’t look light or a waste of time. At the end of that event last night,

Sevan Matossian (22:00):

Andrew Hiller at the tier Tiwa Palooza, they reduced the dumbbell weight for the men from 100 to the women’s weight of 70. And they reduced the women’s weight of 70 to the sev matian weight of Fitty. Smart mover, not smart move. Why do that? Because of the rain. I understand the other things, but why the rain? What’s the dumbbell in the rain? Have anything to do with anything.

Dave Castro (22:22):

When you use a heavier dumbbell and you are trying to receive it overhead, sometimes your feet will get out of control. You’ll do that split clean deal where your feet start to go wide and with all the rain out there and it was actually pouring, it was probably actually the best idea. Like Chase said, they were pretty gassed out. Anyway,

John Young (22:39):

You notice. Wow.

Sevan Matossian (22:40):

Look at how nice you guys are being Bunch of pussies. Go ahead

John Young (22:43):


Dave Castro (22:44):

You might as well change the whole thing. So whatever.

Sevan Matossian (22:48):

Go ahead, get ’em. Get ’em. Tell me how Dylan fucked Don. Tell me how Dylan fucked up the tier Waterloo by changing the way it’s Tell me

Chase Ingraham (22:55):


Sevan Matossian (22:58):

I got the tear water blues in there. I’m good. I’m good.

John Young (23:02):

You noticed that they were all muscle snatching it too. Nobody was doing the drop underneath. None of them, even if it might’ve been, they all looked like they were very strictly snatching. Like the hinge looked very, very big. I wish they would’ve kept it heavier, but that might just be my own bias. I don’t think people were able to make a bunch of moves in the dumbbell snatch because it was lighter and I think they would’ve been able to make moves if they kept it the same. But again, I understand the changes. It rains. Everybody goes with the same stuff. I don’t have a problem with it, but I’m not against it either.

Sevan Matossian (23:35):

Okay. Tier Waap palooza skirts by with an approval from the podcast. Gabby moved into first place during the event. Okay, we talked about that already. Matilda Gars pulled out. We talked about that. We don’t know if she’s going back in for team yet. Corona is out. Did we ever find out what James Briggs was talking to his judge about?

John Young (23:56):

His rower wouldn’t come on. So he said this, his rower

Chase Ingraham (24:00):

Was being erratic. I think

John Young (24:02):

He said this on the podcast. When you left Savon to me and Hiller, his rower would not start for 12 seconds, rounds two and three. So he was 12 seconds behind everybody.

Caleb Beaver (24:14):

And then after it started, it was miscounting his stroke rate too or his pace

John Young (24:20):

Going. He’d go 1 42 to 1 52 to 2 0 7 and then back to one 50 to 1 42.

Sevan Matossian (24:26):

Have scores been changed because of that?

Dave Castro (24:29):

Not because of that.

Caleb Beaver (24:31):

He couldn’t appeal it. He didn’t go up to the athlete brief.

Sevan Matossian (24:35):

Is that why?

John Young (24:36):

Yeah, that’s what he said

Caleb Beaver (24:37):

From the athlete brief. So he went to go to appeal it. They’re like, oh, you weren’t there, so you can’t appeal it.

Sevan Matossian (24:43):

I get that. I think they have that same rule at the games. Yeah,

Chase Ingraham (24:46):


John Young (24:46):

Standard. Yeah, I understand that. We had a

Dave Castro (24:48):


Sevan Matossian (24:50):

Okaya, not our math Susa, but one of some South American version, buff giant, south American version of Susa blew out his hamstring. We actually got to see that on the live feed as he was doing the dumbbell snatches. Has he recovered? We saw him drop to his butt, do a snatch, looked like he pulled a hammy.

Dave Castro (25:09):

Blowing your hamstring on a 70 pound dumbbell snatch is some weak stuff.

Sevan Matossian (25:15):

You think it’s just cramping then you think it’s just cramping.

Dave Castro (25:17):

It’s got to be cramping if it’s blown out and the dude is as juiced as I thought he was.

Sevan Matossian (25:23):

Wow. Wow, wow, wow. And is that because, I don’t know what the word is, you’re not that you’re racist, but you’re continent. Well, I just think that a lot of us think that if you’re south of the border, you’re on the juice.

John Young (25:38):

You clearly said Brazilians have weak hamstrings.

Dave Castro (25:40):

You went from snatching 2 0 5 is like two years ago to doing two 80 on the complex yesterday.

Sevan Matossian (25:47):


Chase Ingraham (25:48):

I feel like Hiller is an equal opportunity steroid. It’s not regionally specific.

John Young (25:55):

Oh, I didn’t know what you meant by that, but I got it. Yeah.

Sevan Matossian (25:59):

Alright, fair enough. And

Dave Castro (26:00):

Women, white, black, they’re all on steroids.

Sevan Matossian (26:04):

Emma, that’s very kind of you. Hiller, you’re a good dude. Emma Carey, who’s having a tremendous performance so far. What place is she in? Second? She’s in second. Second behind Gabby mc and then just above Danielle, Brandon. Very, very close race. 2 72 64 and 2 56 0.5. Anyone can still win it? Emma Carey got an extra six seconds or was it eight seconds in one of her heats yesterday in the workout. Has that been fixed? I know that if you go to Hiller fitt, you can see an entire video on it. Andrew, you want to tell us what happened

Dave Castro (26:40):

On the entire debacle with the three minute AM rep?

Sevan Matossian (26:44):

Yes. See if you can do it in one 10th the time you did in your video with five times the conciseness, please.

Dave Castro (26:50):

Sure, I can totally do that. On the floor there of an announcer, and it seems like everybody was listening to the announcer say 3, 2, 1, go, 3, 2, 1 time. But there was no 3, 2, 1 time at the end of the second women’s elite heat. There was just a time, that time just so happened to be five seconds after the three minute window was closed. I made an entire video on it. I proved to the fact that the timer was elongated and the broadcaster on the floor of the mc on the floor. It stated that at the wrong time, Waterloos actually went in and adjusted everyone’s scores retroactively. And they emailed all the competitors. So in the people in the second heat, they said, Hey, just so you know, you worked for five extra seconds. That’s our fault. However, we’ve deducted two one rep, however many we determined you didn’t that allotted time. And they also went to the first heat and said that they had done that as well. We’re aware of this issue. We have adjusted the scores in the second heat.

Sevan Matossian (27:46):


John Young (27:46):

Think they handled it really well.

Chase Ingraham (27:48):

Yeah, that’s pretty awesome.

Dave Castro (27:49):

That’s awesome. It’s crazy cool.

John Young (27:51):

You don’t competitions very often.

Sevan Matossian (27:55):

Go ahead John. Go ahead John.

John Young (27:56):

You don’t see that from very many competitions where they’re very upfront. We went by over five seconds. We’re adjusting these heats total. And then for them to email the athletes immediately that night, listen, we’re doing this. We’re doing it to everybody. And then to do it that relatively quickly too, we all know where the standings are before that today’s event starts. It’s just they handled that. I think about as well as anybody could have

Dave Castro (28:24):


Chase Ingraham (28:28):

Too. Right? So it wasn’t just like, oh, we take away five seconds from your time. They had to go back and look and

John Young (28:33):

Count everybody’s

Chase Ingraham (28:34):

Reps in that heat and count reps. That’s impressive.

Dave Castro (28:37):

Yep. Pain of the, but

Sevan Matossian (28:38):

How do we know they did that? Chase? I would just assume they would just give everyone two reps

Chase Ingraham (28:43):

Because there’s people on box jump overs and there’s people on strict pull-ups all at the same time when that was going down. So they would’ve had to look at every single person and look at the three minute mark and did you move afterwards? One rep, did you move three reps? Did you move no reps to do it the right way? That’s a lot of work to sift through.

John Young (29:03):

And you can do it. They have a wide,

Sevan Matossian (29:06):

Give me one second, John. When we come back from this quick product placement, we will talk to John Young Gabe at the Paper Street coffee booth. Live at the venue. How’s it going buddy?

John Young Gabe (29:17):

Good. What’s going on? Can you guys hear me all right?

Sevan Matossian (29:19):

Yeah, we can hear you great. Is that the ATE booth next to you?

John Young Gabe (29:23):

We have ate right next to me. Travis, who’s talking to someone right there. And then we have my booth right here, right next to his.

Sevan Matossian (29:33):

And how is that? I know last year in the mornings you guys were getting crushed with people getting coffee. That was just tough,

John Young Gabe (29:39):

Dude. It’s crazy. We’re doing coffee for all the vendors. We have another area where there’s our espresso machines at the VIP area where all the VIPs get free lattes, whatever they want. And then here just a regular drip coffee where we’re running awesome promotions. If you want to get free coffee throughout the whole weekend, we.
