While watching the game/Tom Brady love fest last night (I don’t even mind the attention Brady gets anymore the dude is 45 and still going), they talked about his training and diet.  How he focuses more on things like stretching rather than weight lifting.  If I owned an NFL team I would have a training staff that made this stuff important.  The NFL has turned into a bunch of weight lifting blockheads that can run a sub 4.5 at insane weights but can’t make it out of games without hamstring, knee or other soft tissue injuries.  Makes me wonder how important these measurables are for guys that can’t stay on the field?  Then again most players don’t have Brady’s drive to maintain the strict diet and workout routines he has.  Maybe all of the injured guys around the league should take note.  Maybe Deebo can skip the milkshakes too, he isn’t hurt (yet).

Flexibility training is important to avoid becoming musclebound and prevent injury. Every hour of weights should have an hour of stretch and flex with it. But too many meatheads don't know it or are never taught it, because at least half the people who are "strength coaches" and "trainers" and whatever are complete hacks.

@nortyfiner makes sense.  It just blows my mind how mismanaged the bodies and health of the best athletes in the world are, especially with how many millions are dependent on it. Or like you said taking advice from hacks.

Let's take Kittle for instance.

He's a professional athlete......why in God's green earth is he not on the line to Alex Guerrero? I'd be beating down his door and asking him for all the help he can give to deal with my issues and allow me to perform at my peak for as long as possible. 

I in all honesty think it's all about the will and desire to be great. 95% of players in teh NFL are all about getting their bag and laying out til they retire. 

TB, Jerry Rice, the Bosa's, TJ Watt, guys like this are all about legacy and leaving it all on the field.

Speaking of Brady, rumor has it that he and Gisele are now living separately and she wants him to retire or else.

I heard that she left him with the kids and hightailed it for Costa Rica during that last week or so of training camp….that was the “man shit” he was having to do. Imagine what a shit show of a divorce that will be.

Yeah, two people who were both already rich and full of themselves when they got married, and now years later there's kids involved too. I'd rather have to knife fight a horny wolverine in a closet than be involved with something like that.
