I love Fridays! Not just because they are the end of my work week, but also because Friday night is one of my favorite workouts: delts & traps. I love how my delts and traps look when they are all pumped up. My goal is to make them look that good without a pump! Also, working delts and traps really brings out the vascularity in my arms and shoulders. I’ve noticed increasingly pronounced vascularity on delts day with each successive week of my cutting phase, so I really look forward to this particular workout.

In addition to all that, PWO meal #2 on training days is by far my favorite meal: grilled eye of round steak, a sweet potato and a big salad with olive oil. I’m not eating cheat meals on this cut, but PWO #2 feels like a cheat meal!

Speaking of grilling, I use my outdoor grill nearly every day, sometimes twice per day. I use it far more than I use my oven. I’m out there grilling in the rain, the heat, the cold, when it’s sunny, when it’s dark – it doesn’t matter to me. My neighbors must think I’m crazy, especially on the days that I grill 12 chicken breasts, and then immediately after those are done I’ll cook up a couple of steaks!

Actually, I can’t believe that I’ve never added my grill to my Favorite Things thread! I’m going to rectify that now. My grill is the Weber Genesis Gold C. I’ve had this grill for almost two years now, and despite VERY heavy use, it has never let me down. The build quality is magnificent. Also, initial assembly is very fast and easy, and requires no tools. The main grilling area is huge (611 square inches) and it has a total of 36,000 BTU-per-hour. There is also a 12,000 BTU side burner. The main cooking area is divided into three individually controllable sections, so if you want part of the grill at a lower temperature it’s no problem. The “flavorizer bars” do a great job of preventing flare-ups. There is an electronic crossover ignition, so you never need matches to fire the grill up – just press a button and you are grilling! The Genesis is so reliable and easy to use that I cook with it far more than I do with my indoor oven. The grill heats up quickly, and can easily reach temperatures of over 700 degrees (F), which is very important for getting that perfect restaurant-style crust on your steaks. There is a built-in temperature gauge on the front of the attractive and durable stainless steel housing. The grill also has a very large storage area with doors, and a handy side rack which holds up to four grilling tools. There are two handy flip-up work shelves that quickly lock into place when you need them, and can be tucked away when you don’t. The grill is backed by a limited lifetime warranty, but you’ll probably never need it. It’s not an inexpensive grill, but it’s one that will last forever and the quality puts every other grill I’ve owned to shame. Highly recommended!
