Tom Brady Drew Inspiration From a Proverb In A Work Out Post
July 11, 2019
When it comes to professional athletes who serve as a daily inspiration, there is no way to pass on Tom Brady. Playing in the NFL at the age of 41, Brady is truly an inspiration to many out there. But what is Brady’s inspiration? We finally found that out today.
The New England Patriots quarterback went on social media to share a picture of himself from a throwing workout and wrote an inspirational caption that reads: “In the long battle between stone and water, in time, the water always wins.”
Only a couple of months after the Patriots finished their 2018 season with a Super Bowl win, Brady was back working out with his trainer Alex Guerrero. Aside from his private workouts, he also had workouts with Julian Edelman, 2019 first-round pick N’Keal Harry, suspended receiver Josh Gordon, and recently retired tight end Rob Gronkowski.
Brady will play his 20th season in the league this year, shortly after he turns 42. Even though most players are retired at this age, Brady hopes to play for at least a few more years. He is in very good shape and works to keep it by physical fitness and training, not to mention a near-maniacal commitment to an incredibly restrictive diet. When talking about when he will be ready to retire from the league, Brady explained:
“I don’t know when the exact time’s going to be. I said earlier that it’ll just feel right but like I said, I set a goal that I want to play to my mid-40s, and I have long term goals, short term goals, but you just have to treat your body right. You have one body, and if you decide to bury and drive it into the ground, that’s what’s going to happen. I committed a long time ago. Everything that Alex and I talk about, treating your body the right way, giving it the right food to eat, make sure it’s drinking the right things, and make sure he and I are staying up on all our treatments, the right amount of strength. In the end, it comes down to discipline.”
