Meathead History Lesson

Today's workout in the small, but good enough gym at Mandalay Bay included pulldowns, cable rear delts, db rows, cable lateral raises, db triceps, and shrugs. This is the last easy workout before moving back to heavy lifting.

It was also the last workout before I move on to "beautiful Golden, Colorado in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains" (bonus points for knowing where that reference came from).

Here's the answer:
The old "EAS" Muscle Media audio tapes that used to feature Bill Phillips or Anthony Almeida being interviewed about supplements. The narrator would always start, "From beautiful Golden, Colorado in the the foothills of the Rocky Mountains...". And that's today's Meathead History lesson.
