Want to age like Tom Brady? Try these suggestions

As the Tampa Bay Buccaneers prepare themselves for this weekend’s Super Bowl, quarterback Tom Brady is getting a lot of attention for leading the Bucs to the big game in his first season with the team and for also being 43 years old.

Ignoring the three second half interceptions in the NFC Championship game, how does the Greatest Of All Time (GOAT) maintain such a high level of performance that will allow him to become the oldest quarterback to start a Super Bowl?

Tom Brady lives a disciplined life of practicing holistic, wellness habits which he shares in his 2017 book, “The TB12 Method.”

The TB12 philosophies include maintaining a positive outlook along with a focus on recovery, and a strict diet of avoiding such things as refined sugar and alcohol.

Much of the book suggests basic healthy habits like proper hydration, stretching and getting plenty of sleep. The book is definitely worth checking out, especially if you’re inspired by the “old” quarterback.

Most of us cannot afford a personal chef or a personal trainer to follow us around all day like Tom can, but here are some basic suggestions for us aging athletes to focus in on.

Stretching

A daily stretching routine is important because we lose flexibility as we age.

Combine that with the repetitive motion of playing our sport and it is easy to create muscular imbalances that can lead to injuries and keep us on the sideline.
