Joel Kerr – @Graybeard7229
If you are reading this and you are following Zachary then there is a good chance you might have heard my name before. My name is Joel Kerr but, for some reason, sometimes I get called Graybeard. I don’t really know why but I’m thinking it has something to do with an ape because I get silver back too. A few weeks ago Zach asked me if I would be interested in putting some knowledge down on paper. Naturally, about training and mindset, was well as a few other things. So, of course I tried to fight it but he can talk me into doing damn near anything. Hell, he talked me into letting him train with me when I was probably the meanest and nastiest I’ve been in my life.
Well, I thought maybe I could give just a little touch of background before I waste any more of your time. I have been training since I was 15 years old and I’m a stone’s throw away from 50 now. I have done some bodybuilding and powerlifting in my time. I have trained all over America because I am lucky enough to be an ironworker and the company I worked for out of town treated me fairly well. I dont have a lot of pictures and I haven’t ever put alot of stuff down on paper to prove that I know a damn thing about training. What I do have is a lot of sweat, blood, puke, torn hands, torn muscles and tendons and upwards of over 40,000 hours in the gym. I’ve trained in some pretty nice facilities and I’ve trained in some dumps. There isn’t much difference in them usually though, because no matter if there was cotton towels on the ends of each bench or someone’s puke in the corner of the squat rack, I was there to do one mother fucking thing! That was to take my mind and my body to another place and another level. Maybe you have heard this before but, we are what we think. So for 35 plus years I have never been strong enough and I have never been big enough. You get it huh? You’re saying this dude is a fucking lunatic but I can relate with him. Now let’s not get the cart in front of the jag-off just yet. Lol! What I’m saying is training is who I am! It runs like wild fire in my veins and I can’t get enough of this shit! No matter how bad this old body fights me- I am FORVER PUSHIN!!
