Patriots' Tom Brady discusses new book with CBS This Morning
NEW YORK (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - New England Patriots star quarterback Tom Brady never thought he'd be writing a book, but the 40 year-old is happy to explain the training methods and diet that he credits with maximizing his performance and keeping him on the field for an 18th season.
Brady sat down with the CBS This Morning team to talk about his new book, The TB-12 Method.
The five-time Super Bowl champion explains pliability in his new book. It's a technique for lengthening and softening the muscles to create more balance.
"When you're an athlete, your coach looks at you and says, 'is he an improving player or is he the--a declining player?' And if you're ever at the point where you're a declining player, well then they are looking for someone to replace you," Brady said.
Brady--the oldest non-kicker in the league--says his strategy helps prevent injury and improve his game, but it's not magic.
He also focuses heavily on hydration and a healthy diet.
Brady says his goal is to make it to age 45 as a professional quarterback.
