Sevan Matossian (00:00):

For the people. Whoa. Something weird’s going on here. Bam. We’re live. What

Andrew Hiller (00:04):

Do you mean

Sevan Matossian (00:05):

Save on Matian? God, I’m so excited about my

Andrew Hiller (00:09):

Save on

Sevan Matossian (00:09):

Toothpaste. Welcome to the Best and Most Humble podcast. What’s this in the space? Shit. Fuck you on the space. Just in outer space. Maybe subscribe please.

Andrew Hiller (00:26):


Sevan Matossian (00:27):

Please subscribe. Please just go. Fuck you. I ain’t doing the show unless you subscribe.

Andrew Hiller (00:33):

Turn the show off. They’re not subscribing. Shut it down.

Sevan Matossian (00:36):

Yeah, if you’re not a subscriber, I was told that I need to ask to subscribe. Wow, what is going on here in the comments? What is that hoodie? I was wondering the exact same thing. What is going on? Is that new? I’ve never seen you wear that one.

Andrew Hiller (00:48):

I have four of these.

Sevan Matossian (00:50):

I’ve seen the red one.

Andrew Hiller (00:51):

I got one in blue, green, yellow and red. And the Kirkland one, they were like 30% of the retail value.

Sevan Matossian (01:02):

Well, well done. It’s always nice to know using You’re using your money wisely. How was the workout? So this is what I ended up doing. Oh boy, you’re not going to like this. Hiller

Andrew Hiller (01:13):

Hit it,

Sevan Matossian (01:14):

Rode these salt bike for 10 minutes, got my obligatory 100 calories in, and then I set the interval timer one minute on, one minute off for 10 minutes. So five rounds and I took five pound. Just five pound weights. Just five? No, no, no. I did five pound weights. I did 10 like this. Just straight arms slow and then 10 like this, standing right standing 10 like this straight arm slow. That took me a minute and then I did as fast as I could, step backs with no weight.

Andrew Hiller (01:46):

Were you trying to mimic the event?

Sevan Matossian (01:48):

Yeah, and I was trying to mimic the event a little bit, but I know I’m going to work out again later on today, so I just wanted to get in a little 20 minute something in between the break, but you want to know what happened in the round? I went about 85. No, not my back. My back felt great at about 85%. I was getting 40 reps per round step backs, which is more a little less than one a second and my hamstring cramped. I can’t ever remember my hamstring cramping ever, but it cramped. I just worked through it. I’m a big boy.

Andrew Hiller (02:16):

How is it now?

Sevan Matossian (02:17):

Great. Awesome. Yeah, I’m a beast. You do? Did you work out?

Andrew Hiller (02:21):

Hey, there are people in the world who when they feel something go on and they’re just done.

Sevan Matossian (02:26):

No, I just worked through it. Worked through it.

Andrew Hiller (02:28):

I did not work out. No.

Sevan Matossian (02:30):

Oh, you didn’t? That’s my first workout day. Hey, I want to share something with you Here. You ready for this? There’s all these fucking people out there who are like,

Sevan Matossian (02:37):

I get up every morning at 4:00 AM The first thing I do is I work out. I never have any fucking excuses. Excuses are for pussies. Work out. I get up early, I get up before everyone else. That’s how I get ahead.

Sevan Matossian (02:52):

There’s that whole genre. Let’s

Andrew Hiller (02:54):

Hear it.

Sevan Matossian (02:55):

But I want to tell you the real truth. The next above that, and I really think you’re going to respect this. I’m a workout minimum once a day guy, but I’d say more than 50% of the time, two times a day. If you count that first thing, I did a workout, right? It’s a workout, yeah. Change my clothes, put on clean underwear, get back to whatever I was doing, and then I’m moving all day. I have kids and then I’ll do something probably else in the garage tonight. 10 burpees, 10 deadlift with 1 35, 10 rounds, something like that. A little harder. Now


It’s not once you’ve accomplished that, I always work out. I get up early before everyone, once you’ve conquered that like me. Just insane discipline, crazy structure, supreme humility and confidence blended into one. The next level is self-compassion to always be compassionate with yourself and to accept yourself. So the day, the other day, it was nine o’clock at night and I was like, oh, I didn’t work out and that’s very rare for me, but instead of harshing my gig, I don’t trip at all. I’m compassionate with myself. I respect the fact that I’m not going to do one today. I’m going to rest. I’m going to accept it, and that’s the next level. When you accept, accept those situations,

Andrew Hiller (04:26):

The situations that you aren’t going to work out at 4:00 AM like some moron.

Sevan Matossian (04:29):

Yeah, don’t. Beyond proving that I have to get up early every morning to work out. I’m beyond proving that I have to be disciplined, that I have to have structure, that I have to for me now, I’m at the next level. I’m crazy compassionate for giving and accepting myself and I’m endlessly happy. I have just endless happiness and positivity because of that.

Andrew Hiller (04:48):

What you’re saying I do agree with, but I think that everyone just needs to figure out what they are. There are people who work out at that time and they’re just ready to do it and it’s what they do. It’s the life they live,

Sevan Matossian (05:00):


Andrew Hiller (05:01):

There are people who are trying to convince themselves that it makes them more of a badass and they’re the worst type of people. Mark Wahlberg.

Sevan Matossian (05:09):

Oh, I like, Hey, he’s a good Christian. He’s a good Christian. John. He’s one of your people

Andrew Hiller (05:14):


Sevan Matossian (05:17):

Anyway, John looks like a homeless man in a public bathroom.

Andrew Hiller (05:20):

Here we go again.

Sevan Matossian (05:21):


Andrew Hiller (05:22):

Looks like

Sevan Matossian (05:25):

That’s not true, by the way. But the only reason why you look like that is because I got a haircut. This camera

Andrew Hiller (05:29):

Angle makes me look crazy though. You look big,

Sevan Matossian (05:33):

So I’m not saying that it’s okay to eat cake dessert after dinner, but if you go to your kid’s some birthday party and you end up doing a shot of whiskey and you have a piece of cake that twice a year that that accidentally happens, enjoy it, love it. Have compassion for yourself. The days that John skips reading the Bible and accidentally ends up on you porn. Just be compassionate with yourself. Start over again the next day. Work hard. Be compassionate.

John Young (06:06):


Andrew Hiller (06:07):

You ever hear the saying from, maybe it’s not a saying, but it’s more of a meme. If you were a billionaire and you wanted to keep yourself being one of the few billionaires, you know what you do Convince everybody else. It’s a good idea to wake up on four hours of sleep and kill yourself first thing in the morning.

Sevan Matossian (06:24):

Wow, I slept

Andrew Hiller (06:31):

Wahlberg. These people, they don’t do that.

Sevan Matossian (06:34):

I slept until eight 30 the other day because the shut up and scribble guys have taken over the morning. I slept until

Andrew Hiller (06:43):

Eight 30.

Sevan Matossian (06:43):

8 30, 8 30. Yeah. It was amazing. But my son’s like, wow, I’ve never seen you sleep in this late. I was like, yeah, it was great. Thank you. Thank you.

Andrew Hiller (06:55):

They wake up like an hour after you typically, right?

Sevan Matossian (06:58):

Yeah, I’m a 6:00 AM Waker. They’re a 7:00 AM Waker. I would be disgusted if my kids woke up at 10 or 11. I would not tolerate that.

John Young (07:07):

I wouldn’t tolerate it either.

Sevan Matossian (07:09):

I wonder what’s going to happen.

John Young (07:10):

I wake up early, but not because I want to. It’s just out of habit.

Sevan Matossian (07:17):

Hey, Jake Chapman. Don’t get used to thats, Hey, I’d like to wake up at five. I’d love to do a show, a 5:00 AM show instead of a 7:00 AM show. I’d love to get up at four and do a 5:00 AM show. I’m just not ready for it yet.

Andrew Hiller (07:29):

Can you tell me more about that? Because it sounds like the workout people all of a sudden

Sevan Matossian (07:32):

And because I want to do east coast shows, you know what I really want to do? Hiller. I want to do a show. I want to do three of my shows a week at 7:00 AM and three of my shows a week at midnight so that people in Europe can enjoy. Be blessed with the seven on podcast.

Andrew Hiller (07:48):

That’d be interesting. That’d be cool.

John Young (07:49):

I found that The Spin has a decent amount of Australian fans because we always go live in the morning, their 7:00 AM time, so people will watch it in the morning even though we’re on at seven at night. For us, it’s weird. Australia, you

Andrew Hiller (08:08):

Know what? Screw it. Just go on at 2:00 AM your time. What is a clock? But nothing made up by the human being.

Sevan Matossian (08:16):

The highlight of my last four days has just occurred. The boys, the Tear Boys, Attwater Palooza, they didn’t just win. They put the smack down on. By the way, did I mention subscribe? Please subscribe. Just subscribe. Get the numbers up. Let’s get the numbers up. I don’t bug you guys. I don’t ask you guys for a lot. How about 20 bucks a month and subscribe, get a membership and a subscription?

Andrew Hiller (08:34):


Sevan Matossian (08:35):

Yeah. Let’s do we have the leaderboard. Am I doing the leaderboard? I’ll do the leaderboard. Sorry. You spoiled me, Hillary. I got

Andrew Hiller (08:43):

It. I got it. Okay.

John Young (08:45):

Plus Ultra. Do

Andrew Hiller (08:47):

You want the men or the women first?

Sevan Matossian (08:48):

Master? I guess we might as well do the women. I bet the men aren’t even ready yet.

Andrew Hiller (08:53):

It’s always better to do the women.

Sevan Matossian (08:55):

Okay, the women is uneventful, except we did have a little bit of a shakeup here. Finally, the best individual athletes at the event have finally pulled off a victory, right?

John Young (09:07):


Sevan Matossian (09:08):

They are The Ice barrel chicks. That was Brook Wells Page Powers and

John Young (09:16):

Bailey Rail.

Sevan Matossian (09:16):

Bailey Rail, thank you. That

Andrew Hiller (09:17):

Was a John Young Pick. We should all acknowledge that really quick and he also beat me on this one who were a huge disappointment.

Sevan Matossian (09:25):

Hey, let me go here, disapp, let me go here really quick. First, would’ve never, I respect the fact that those are amazing athletes. Bailey Rail, Paige Powers, Brooke Wells. I just did not think that they would win this, but the way John explained it, he’s like, Hey, they’re individual athletes and this is an individual event. This isn’t a team event and this is where these ladies are going to shine.

Andrew Hiller (09:47):

That was a good way to put it.

Sevan Matossian (09:48):

Yeah. John nailed it.

Andrew Hiller (09:50):

John nailed it.

John Young (09:52):

Thank you guys. I’ve been redeeming myself.

Sevan Matossian (09:54):

Not a compliment. Thank me. It’s just an observation. I hate it when I’m right about you.

John Young (10:00):


Sevan Matossian (10:01):

Okay. Go ahead. Redeem yourself. What?

John Young (10:04):

No, you’re good. Go ahead.

Sevan Matossian (10:06):

Tell us why didn’t our stronger than nineties girls win it? They took second.

John Young (10:11):

Yeah, they did really, really good.

Sevan Matossian (10:13):

They were 30 seconds behind Brook Wells page Powers and Bailey Rail.

John Young (10:17):

They’re just not as fit as those girls. And this was the most individualized event other than the sandbag event. But I mean, I think you could take me Hiller and Chase and we wouldn’t look at a place because the work is so doable.

Andrew Hiller (10:32):

It’s very

John Young (10:34):

On that event.

Andrew Hiller (10:35):

Seven did in his garage. He just did lateral raises instead.

Sevan Matossian (10:41):

And I didn’t use weight in the step backs. God, how much weight were the ladies using in the step backs?

Andrew Hiller (10:45):


John Young (10:45):

It looked like 30 some 50 threes.

Sevan Matossian (10:48):

Hey, there were some awkward people.

Andrew Hiller (10:51):

What do you mean?

Sevan Matossian (10:52):

There were just some goofballs people stepping back and it was some goofy shit. We were seeing

Andrew Hiller (10:55):

What’s goofy about some of the people stepping back?

Sevan Matossian (10:58):

Just they would step back wide and then their knee would bow in and it just looked goofy. And the way the kettlebells, the way the kettlebells were hanging, some people had the kettlebells. They didn’t even look like they were resting on their shoulders.

Andrew Hiller (11:12):

Do you feel as if we should speak on the movements they did instead of the prescribed way? I’m

John Young (11:17):

So tired of events changing.

Sevan Matossian (11:20):

Talk to me, talk to me first. Tell me what happened with the changes were Hiller and then well, John gathers himself from this bipolar depression. He’s in.

Andrew Hiller (11:28):

Lemme yank it up real quick.

Sevan Matossian (11:30):

Yank it up, please don’t yank it up.

Andrew Hiller (11:32):

I’m going to yank it up. I’m going to yank it out and up.

Sevan Matossian (11:37):

There was a downpour of rain prior to the event starting. This is the fourth event at the Tier Waza team Competition, a super high level competition in terms of there’s a ton of amazing competitors. Some of the fittest humans. Oh,

Andrew Hiller (11:47):

You got the homies.

Sevan Matossian (11:48):

A lot of the fittest human beings in the world were there and at the last minute they had to change, which is not uncommon. I thought we had accepted the fact that they changed stuff at Waap Palooza, but John doesn’t seem to like it. Here we go. The team that won Team Tier.

Team Tyr (12:03):

That’s how you get it done.

Sevan Matossian (12:04):

Down Pepper Fresh out of his shower

Team Tyr (12:06):


Sevan Matossian (12:07):

Is he forcing you to carry his backpack too? You have yours on the back and Jason’s on the front.

Team Tyr (12:11):

I just brought too much stuff. I’m bringing all Jason’s food though. He started,

Sevan Matossian (12:18):

My goodness. Hey, how close are you to you in your career where someone’s going to carry your shit for you?

Team Tyr (12:24):

When I’m not competing team, I make people carry my shit.

Sevan Matossian (12:27):

Okay, nice. You take that one.

Team Tyr (12:28):

That’s what Mask for Nice. Carrying my shit. Hey, how’d it look? How’d it look?

Sevan Matossian (12:34):

Oh my God, you got Dom studs. Complete domination as John Young says,

Team Tyr (12:41):

It’s just too easy. Everyone’s just kind of slow. I suggest that we go one more round. If you’re not over 85 on that bike, you’re just slow.

John Young (12:51):

I saw you peeping Roman’s bike hard on the first round where you’re just trying to keep,

Team Tyr (12:57):

If I’m just resting, I’m going to see what he’s doing. Okay. I think everyone was playing that game. I saw Saxon looked over. I was looking at him the whole time.

John Young (13:06):

Well, Saxon looked over with the biggest of eyes. He knows he can’t take it.

Sevan Matossian (13:10):

Hey, I hope you guys, you are getting along so well. I hope you’re not making Ricky feel left out. You guys being nice to him, making him feel like he’s one of you guys.

Team Tyr (13:18):

Oh, of course. He is one of us. He’s a dog.

Sevan Matossian (13:21):

He’s a sensitive man. I don’t want you guys leaving him out. I don’t see him in the shot right now. Where

Team Tyr (13:25):

Is he? He’s alright. He is going to a different hotel.

Sevan Matossian (13:29):

Is that what you guys are doing? You guys are going to rest for the next event?

Team Tyr (13:32):

Yeah, we’re going to go up to Mascot. A place at the Intercontinental. Bro, look at that. You can’t even see anything out there. Yeah, I’m going to go take a big nap. We got like three hours. Hey, we got to kick it. Watch this Cowboys pack your game. Piece of food. Chill. Come do it again.

Sevan Matossian (13:48):

Hey, there was no one even close to you guys. You guys just destroyed.

Team Tyr (13:53):

Well, I guess someone from the HEPA four was only 10 seconds, so they’re dogs. Go, go, go.

Sevan Matossian (14:00):

Hey, does that mean that you three are probably the best three individual athletes there too? That’s what John Young’s saying. He’s saying you guys won because you’re the best three individual athletes. 1, 2, 3 on the podium next year at the games.

Team Tyr (14:10):

We seem to do all right as individuals out here, but I guess we’ll know at the end of the season.

Sevan Matossian (14:18):

Hey, when you said you’re going to rest in Matt’s room at the Intercontinental, that’s Matt Torres?

Team Tyr (14:23):

Yeah. Yeah.

Sevan Matossian (14:25):


Team Tyr (14:25):

What’s next?

Sevan Matossian (14:26):

Don’t roll into the wet spot.

Team Tyr (14:29):

Don’t the wet spot. It’s a monsoon out here. Yeah, it’s bad.

Sevan Matossian (14:38):

Were you guys micd up for that event?

Team Tyr (14:40):

Yeah, I think I gave you some decent stuff I was talking.

Sevan Matossian (14:45):

I love it. Okay. Do you guys know where you’re placed right now? Hiller’s going to see if he can refresh the leaderboard and see where you guys are placed. Do you guys know what? Hey, Hiller.

Team Tyr (14:53):

Hiller. What’s up? How many double owners did we do yesterday?

Andrew Hiller (14:58):

You did an extra 48 if my memory serves me correct.

Team Tyr (15:01):

Has to go 30 seconds slot points. I know. Hey, somebody said you counted three 50.

Andrew Hiller (15:08):

I have it written down somewhere over here. I got to figure it out. But you did do extra. Did they not adjust your score? What happened there?

Team Tyr (15:15):

They did not get our appeal.

Sevan Matossian (15:17):

They didn’t get it or they just threw it back in your face?

Team Tyr (15:20):

They didn’t give it to us. No.

Sevan Matossian (15:22):

Hiller said that they moved you up one place from ninth to eighth.

Andrew Hiller (15:25):

You were moved up one spot. Oh

Team Tyr (15:26):

Really? Yeah. Yeah. Oh, that’s good. They told me they didn’t do anything.

John Young (15:31):

Currently they’re fourth. They’re 16 points at a third, 20 points at a second. 32 at a first.

Team Tyr (15:39):

Sorry. I need some things to be all right.

Andrew Hiller (15:40):

Not updated.

Sevan Matossian (15:42):

They’re not. No,

Team Tyr (15:43):

I think it is.

Andrew Hiller (15:44):

Is updated. Four is not. No, not,

Sevan Matossian (15:51):

Oh, it does look updated. Hiller.

Team Tyr (15:54):

Dang. I was hoping it’s closer than that.

Andrew Hiller (15:57):

A hundred, 200. No, it’s not.

Sevan Matossian (16:01):

Oh, okay. There’s There’s

John Young (16:02):

Been five events, right?

Team Tyr (16:04):

There’s six events.

John Young (16:06):

Yeah, I know, but you’ve done five.

Team Tyr (16:07):

Oh yeah, yeah. Sorry, I didn’t

John Young (16:08):

Hear you then. It’s updated hill.

Team Tyr (16:11):

Oh man.

Andrew Hiller (16:14):

No, it’s not.

John Young (16:16):

What did say

Andrew Hiller (16:17):

Yes it it’s it. It is, it is. Sorry. Sorry, sorry.

Sevan Matossian (16:23):

D. When you put in the appeal and they know that you did 38 too many, right? They can just go back and look at the video. What’s their reason for not giving you the reps?

Team Tyr (16:33):

They said they went and rewatched it and the judge called all of those no reps and you can’t appeal a judge’s call or something.

Sevan Matossian (16:42):

Oh, no rep because they weren’t sync road.

Team Tyr (16:45):

Yeah, but I don’t know. That’s synchro double unders. That’s tough. So I imagine all the other teams looked pretty similar

Sevan Matossian (16:53):

And do you remember what the qualification for being synced was? What the standard was? You had to be feet on the ground at the same time or I

Team Tyr (17:01):

Think you had to leave the ground at the same time.

Sevan Matossian (17:03):

Alright. Have you ever seen those in the games? Do they have those in the games? I guess you don’t go team in the games.

Team Tyr (17:08):

No, I’ve never seen Synchro. I’ve seen, well actually, maybe they did.

Andrew Hiller (17:12):

They’ve done it before, but it wasn’t synchro in the air the way they were supposed to be here. From what I understand.

Team Tyr (17:19):

Yeah, it was weird. It’s all right though.

John Young (17:21):

Hey, just so you guys know, you got to beat the OMB braids by four spots.

Team Tyr (17:25):

Oh, that’s good. How many? Four. Four. That’s not good. How far ahead were they? They were ahead by like 40. Oh, nevermind. That’s not good.

Sevan Matossian (17:37):

Hey, what place did they take in that workout hill or the Obras?

Andrew Hiller (17:40):

They took fifth. They took

John Young (17:42):


Sevan Matossian (17:42):

Okay, so it’s doable. You beat ’em by four spots in that one. You can beat ’em in four spots again.

Team Tyr (17:47):

Let’s do it. Let’s see what this one turns. We got the worm coming up. It’s more chemistry.

Andrew Hiller (17:53):

I remember earlier in the weekend you said the worm would be no big deal. What happened to that?

Team Tyr (17:57):

I never said that, bro.

Andrew Hiller (17:58):

Sure. You did

Team Tyr (18:00):

Show me the clip

John Young (18:01):

Or pixel. Or pixel by five spots. You can beat pixel by five or obras by four.

Team Tyr (18:07):

Is that really going to have to fall apart? No. We got strict pull-ups coming up, man, we got this.

Sevan Matossian (18:12):

Hey, hopper

Andrew Hiller (18:12):

Vault are strict.

Team Tyr (18:14):

Maybe if it’s raining

John Young (18:17):


Sevan Matossian (18:18):

When you were entering the water and then you started sliding on the ramp, you put your hands back, you gently caressed your butt and then it looked like you did a head fake, like you were actually thinking about then coming up from the seated position to a dive. Did you think about that for a second?

Team Tyr (18:33):

I don’t know what I was thinking. They just had to be careful, so I was being careful.

Sevan Matossian (18:36):

Hey, is it the sticker that’s slippery or the wood?

Team Tyr (18:41):

It was covered in a black mat or something, but the sticker’s definitely more slick.

Sevan Matossian (18:45):

More slick. Okay. Alright. You guys going to talk to the PFAA about

Team Tyr (18:50):

That? I got no shame. I’m a secure man. All is well.

Sevan Matossian (18:56):

Alright. Hey, you guys are the best. Thank you so much. I’m so excited to see the footage. You guys rock

Team Tyr (19:00):

Later, guys. Later guys, see us on the podium

Sevan Matossian (19:04):

Tier water palooza Team Pepper. Jason Hooper. Man, that’s so cool that they’re letting us ride their jock like that. This is fucking

Andrew Hiller (19:15):

Crazy. They’re soaking wet.

John Young (19:18):

Yeah, they are

Sevan Matossian (19:20):

Not bothering him though. They don’t. They could give two shits, right?

Andrew Hiller (19:23):

No, they don’t care.

Sevan Matossian (19:24):

Yeah, there you go. I think they

Andrew Hiller (19:26):

Like it. They like

Sevan Matossian (19:27):

It. Fondle. Jason Hopper is strong in the force. I mean in the Lord.

Andrew Hiller (19:31):

Look at that profile picture. Don Fall

Sevan Matossian (19:35):


Andrew Hiller (19:37):

Stefon podcast logo in the background.

Sevan Matossian (19:40):

He’s good, dude. He’s a good dude. Hey, you with, would you go out there? If you were to go out there and do a team, would you double down on your TRT from Ca Hormones?

Andrew Hiller (19:54):

You mean do a cycle?

Sevan Matossian (19:56):

Yeah, just, well, I don’t

Andrew Hiller (19:57):

Knows what It’s, if you double down, it’d be taking 400 milligrams a week and yeah, I’d be huge. Oh, that’d be awesome. But that can’t also, I wouldn’t be able to say that on the internet, nor would I be able to do it legally through the company.

John Young (20:12):

You’re only allowed to take a certain amount.

Andrew Hiller (20:16):

I would need to have reason to be given that prescription and I don’t think that I have reason you want

John Young (20:20):

To get big.

Andrew Hiller (20:23):

That’s not bad reason. That’s a reason. I guess

Sevan Matossian (20:26):

Dan TI know it hurts you guys, but the tier team ain’t going to be on the podium. Dude, what are you talking about? What the fuck are you talking about Dan? They’re in fourth. They’re guaranteed to be on the podium.

Andrew Hiller (20:41):

The podium’s three homie. They’re

Sevan Matossian (20:43):

Not guaranteed. I know, but they’re guaranteed. Four is three. When you have dLAN and Hopper and Ricky Mack on your team

Andrew Hiller (20:54):

Team, California hormones, that’d be cool.

Sevan Matossian (20:58):

Justin h. The highest mountain TRTA doctor can give is faux hgi.

Andrew Hiller (21:02):

I got no reason to not believe that, but that’s something I’ve never heard. I know plenty of people on 200, which by all means is

Sevan Matossian (21:14):

What was the fake name you used for the open last year? Bruce Lee,

Andrew Hiller (21:17):

Oliver Queen,

Sevan Matossian (21:18):

Oliver Queen. You’d get a subscription for Oliver Queen,

Andrew Hiller (21:21):

The Green

Sevan Matossian (21:21):

Arrow and then take his shit.

Andrew Hiller (21:24):

It’s kind of like opening an LLC.

Sevan Matossian (21:26):

Ken Walter Stephan’s. DEI Council says four equals three.

Andrew Hiller (21:31):

I think that they’re kind of in a tough spot when it comes to podium contention because

Sevan Matossian (21:36):

Of the workout we’re going to see next. Yeah,

Andrew Hiller (21:38):

Someone ombre home, I mean it. It’s to who’s the team master Noah, who does team every year here and Chandler, who’s shown competency on the worm. On a worm friend and then Pixel. Yeah,

John Young (21:53):

Which they’ve just been killing the whole weekend. We haven’t talked about them at all and they have done great this entire weekend.

Sevan Matossian (21:59):

Who’s on that team? Is that Angelo? Did she know?

John Young (22:01):

It’s Roman Saxon and Jorge Fernandez.

Andrew Hiller (22:05):

Wow. Yeah, so I think they’re probably solidified fourth. One of those teams. I brought that piece up with Hopper and the worm he did earlier. Just like, oh yeah, no problem. The worm and then they got slapped around by it on the fleet and jerks a little bit. So

John Young (22:20):

They did.

Andrew Hiller (22:21):

So they’re in fourth, which is

Sevan Matossian (22:23):

Great. They have two hours of rest by the way, two hours and four minutes

John Young (22:29):

Than is it thrusters for this workout? We thrusters

Sevan Matossian (22:35):


John Young (22:35):

More than now. To be fair. You can get in a rhythm with that though. You get synced up. You can get into a good rhythm with that. It’s not as hard as clean and jerks, at least I don’t think so.

Sevan Matossian (22:46):

The workout is at 21 Worm Thrusters, eight pull-ups, seven chest bar, six bar muscle-ups,

Andrew Hiller (22:57):

And then Hoppers speculating that there’s going to be strict pull-ups because of the rain.

John Young (23:01):

What if they did strict pullups and then Pullovers and then one other movement?

Andrew Hiller (23:09):

They’re not doing pullovers.

Sevan Matossian (23:10):

They’re not doing pullovers.

Andrew Hiller (23:11):

Howard the water. You out of joking?

Sevan Matossian (23:13):

I like it though. No, I like it though.

Andrew Hiller (23:15):

Hey, before we got the stars of the show on, we were talking about this workout and how they changed it.

Sevan Matossian (23:22):

Oh yes. Okay. Okay. Let’s talk. Yeah, let’s go back. So we just finished event number five of the team competition at Tier Water Palooza 2024. There was Downpour of Rain. They changed the workout it was supposed to be Is that the new workout?

Andrew Hiller (23:38):

This is the old workout. John was about to get all hot and bother about

Sevan Matossian (23:41):

It. Yeah. What did they change, John, that you didn’t like?

John Young (23:45):

They changed eight kettlebell box step overs to 24 kettlebell lunges and then instead of 12 double kettlebell hang snatches, it was eight kettlebell over shoulder to overhead. So 24 and eight instead of eight and 12

Andrew Hiller (24:01):

Should probably still because I do think the people who won won either way.

John Young (24:06):

I agree. I agree. I don’t think it affected the placements. I’m just annoyed that we have to change every single event. It’s just annoying. I’m not bothered by who won or won because of this. I don’t think that at all. I think most of the way it would’ve shook out the similar, but it’s just why do we even have events if we’re just going to change every single one of them? I dunno, you should expect rain somewhat at water palooza. It’s just, just annoyed that it’s raining nonstop and every single event is different.

Andrew Hiller (24:43):

Talk to your God, dude. This

Sevan Matossian (24:44):

Is what I was talking about. People you have to accept how

John Young (24:47):

Much does it cost for a big canopy?

Sevan Matossian (24:49):

John is arguing with reality. This is what I’m talking about next level. John is still in the, I’m disciplined. I work out every day at two in the morning stop. I go to sleep hanging upside down like a bat. He’s in that phase, but you have to graduate from that phase and accept the fact that we are at Waap Palooza. It’s going to rain. There’s going to be tons of changes. We have to be excited about the changes. We have to change our reality, our perspective, our awareness.

Andrew Hiller (25:14):

Subscribe, please.

Sevan Matossian (25:15):

Yeah, thank you. That’s what I meant.

John Young (25:20):

You don’t get annoyed with the changes.

Andrew Hiller (25:22):

I do. I do, but on this one less so than the ones from earlier.

John Young (25:26):

Sure. No, I’m not saying that anything’s wrong with the workout.

Andrew Hiller (25:30):

It’s precedence. Dude, I am annoyed that the event after event so rogue, I do think the leader or the winner of the event is altered.

Sevan Matossian (25:37):

I didn’t spell it wrong. I ran out of space for the E. I ran out of space.

Andrew Hiller (25:42):


Sevan Matossian (25:43):

Yeah. This wasn’t supposed to be real signage, like protest signage. This was just supposed to be a reminder. But

Andrew Hiller (25:53):

At the end of this episode, I’m going to see how many you picked up. I hope it’s over a hundred. Just from asking,

Sevan Matossian (25:59):

Hey, I don’t think a canopy matters. It’s just the nature of waza. Hey, why can’t we like it? Why can’t we be like, Hey, this is really the only true place where the unknown and unknowable actually occurs. This is actually the only event where there’s actually CrossFit.

Andrew Hiller (26:14):

This is more CrossFit games than the CrossFit games.

Sevan Matossian (26:16):

Yeah. How about that?

John Young (26:18):

I guess. I think if you guys looked at it as far as making predictions based on the events, you’d be more annoyed.

Sevan Matossian (26:25):

God’s hopper. John. It’s God’s hopper. That’s what we’re rebranding. Why Palooza to God’s hopper?

Andrew Hiller (26:31):

A palooza.

John Young (26:32):

That’s funny. That’s funny. Thank

Sevan Matossian (26:34):

You. Thank you.

Andrew Hiller (26:34):

Here. God,

John Young (26:36):

I look at every event, I’m like, okay, I think this person can win this. And I try to make my predictions based on the events, given who’s good at what, blah, blah, blah. And I mean, I would argue, Hillary, you probably look into it a little bit, but a lot of your stuff is like, I think this guy’s good at this done. There’s not, I do hard looking into it or research thrown at it, and I’m not trying to sound like a certain somebody, but you do put in, we’re a friendly guy. You do put in work to make your predictions and then when four out of the six events get changed, it’s frustrating. That’s all I’m saying.

Andrew Hiller (27:13):

Frustrating for heat one. The competitors of heat one

John Young (27:17):

Makes them impossible.

Andrew Hiller (27:19):

Well how about this? How about this? You talked about the car

Sevan Matossian (27:22):

Races. What kind of cup is that? What do you live in the seventies. Did your mom give that to you?

John Young (27:28):

My mom did. She made this for me.

Sevan Matossian (27:30):

She made that.

John Young (27:31):


Sevan Matossian (27:32):

Okay. Sorry. Go ahead, Hillary.

Andrew Hiller (27:34):

Every year you go.

John Young (27:35):

She didn’t make it. I just want to, I was going to

Sevan Matossian (27:36):

Say all A like, Hey, look at that angle on John’s shoulder. He looks like he uses, he’s starting to get those weird angles.

Andrew Hiller (27:44):

I know those look good. Which

John Young (27:45):

One? Most

Sevan Matossian (27:47):

Of ’em. You’re getting those weird angles. You can’t measure with the protractor. Okay, sorry, go ahead. What were you going to say? Hiller,

Andrew Hiller (27:52):

You go to the Indy 500, what are you going to see?

John Young (27:57):


Sevan Matossian (27:58):

Crash. A crash

Andrew Hiller (27:59):

500 miles. They do, right?

Sevan Matossian (28:01):

Fast forward. Yeah. I want to see a crash round turn seven, a tire fly off and hit someone in the stands and kill ’em.

Andrew Hiller (28:06):

The seats are more expensive there because you’re expecting to see a crash there, right? Yep. Everyone came to see some stuff and the thing about the Josh El Chama video that he said correctly on the podcast with Pedro Coffee pods and wads was his grandma’s never going to be able to sit down and watch it. She’s never going to be able to sit down and know what the hell is going on because up till the last second you can just switch it around and it’s making it tough to follow. From what I understand, it’s not been followed well, does it even matter? No. Who wins? It doesn’t matter. Who cares? No one cares. The people who care are getting boned.

Sevan Matossian (28:48):

I love it when the people who care are getting boned. That’s the way the world should work.

Andrew Hiller (28:52):

I Alright.

Sevan Matossian (28:53):

I told someone today, this is off subject a little bit. I said, Hey, I’ve been doing Waap Palooza for four days. I’m finishing up right now. I got another probably like five hours of concentration. They go, oh my God, I’m so sorry. I’m like, dude, I love this shit. What are you talking about? It was

Andrew Hiller (29:10):

Probably Dave Whatcha

Sevan Matossian (29:11):

No, it wasn’t Dave.

Andrew Hiller (29:13):

Oh my God. I’m so sorry

Sevan Matossian (29:15):

It wasn’t Dave. I love this shit. This is a community event, the Tiwa Palooza event. It’s always been known as a community event. It’s also a serious event. And the two come blended with some interesting exceptions that you wouldn’t see at other events and that’s people entering at the last minute to the point where I’m wondering, and I want to ask you guys if there’s actually a mockery being made out of the competition. Why is Mayhem allowed to have people like Lockhart on the floor competing? I respect the fuck out of Lockert. I think it says a ton about him that he did it. This isn’t a criticism towards mayhem, but they’re on the floor competing, but their placement doesn’t matter.

John Young (29:57):

The same thing can be said for the pans, but I mean.
