(Natural News) Six-time Superbowl champion Tom Brady is one of the most revered athletes in the world. He will turn 42 years young just before the start of his 20th NFL season. At age 41, he led an underdog New England Patriots team to a wild overtime AFC Championship title win, before heading to Superbowl LIII, where he led a successful 4th quarter drive that capped his record-breaking, sixth Superbowl crown. Along the way, he remained poised under pressure, outwitted entire defenses, and outperformed a young MVP quarterback half his age.
Because Tom Brady has shown remarkable durability, discipline, and vitality on and off the field over several years, trainers around the National Football league should take notice and adopt his methods. What sets Tom Brady apart from other athletes is not luck; the secret to his success is found in the unique way he prepares his body and his mind. Tom Brady has been able to perform at such a high level for many years because he focuses on muscle pliability in his workout routines, instead of bulking up his body and shortening his muscles. He also focuses on maximizing cellular energy using a whole food, plant-based diet while mitigating foods that cause inflammation. What we allow into our body and mind has a huge impact on our performance over time, and Tom Brady is a shining example.

Tom Brady’s eyes were opened after experiencing a season-ending knee injury in 2008. During his rehabilitation process, he began to learn about nutrition, muscle pliability, and Eastern healing wisdom. Today he focuses on making his muscles long and soft, instead of short, tight, and dense. He regularly uses resistance bands during his training practice. Notwithstanding, the practice of Yoga has given Brady a template to become more flexible and durable over time. His personal trainer and friend, Alex Guerrero also uses massage therapy to keep Brady’s body and his throwing arm in top condition.
Brady is diligent about the details and takes recuperation seriously. He is known to shut off all lights and devices long before his bed time, and he keeps WIFI signals away from his bedroom. This allows his brain to naturally produce enough melatonin to promote deep, restful sleep. Brady regularly meets with a neuropsychologist to improve his memory and his peripheral vision, to ultimately increase the speed at which he can process information between plays.
