Bill Belichick (coach), Tom Brady (quarterback) and Robert Kraft (owner) differ on Brady’s trainer, body coach, business partner Alex Guerrero. According to Seth Wickersham at ESPN:
THE CRACKS FIRST revealed themselves in early September. The season had just started, and Guerrero was once again becoming an issue in the Patriots’ building, just weeks before the release of Brady’s first real book, “The TB12 Method.” It was more than a fitness and diet guide. For Brady, a self-described “loner” who always seemed most comfortable surrounded by family or on a football field, the book represented a move to extend his brand beyond the game — and beyond the Patriots. Until a few years ago, he seemed uninterested in ever doing so, content to be a father and husband and son and brother and transcendent quarterback, knowing there wasn’t time for much else.
Guerrero persuaded Brady to find time. Guerrero has a history of controversial methods — in 2005, he paid a judgment to the Federal Trade Commission to settle allegations that he had claimed dietary supplements could help cure cancer — and he believed he had discovered a way to revolutionize how athletes train.
Few in the building had a problem with Brady’s method — mostly based on stretching with bands, eating lots of vegetables, drinking lots of water, getting lots of sleep and, most of all, achieving peak “pliability.
My independent research shows significant benefits in dietary supplements in the battle against cancer. I have been researching in the field for well over two decades and have posted on the supplements subject regularly at richardcyoung.com. To get going on track for the benefit your own family, start with some of our posts on Turmeric. (for a sample read here, here, and here.)
I have no specific intelligence on the Guerrero/Brady supplements program. But I have conducted suitable research to review the G/B program and comment professionally. What I know about the Guerrero/Brady method outlined above (featuring stretching, bands, vegetables, water, sleep and pliability) is 100% the program Debbie and I, based on our own research, have been practicing for years. As an aside, I gave up weights long ago in favor of stretching bands. Moreover, two of our most trusted and regularly consulted health professional are practitioners of Chinese medicine and acupuncture.
I strongly support the Guerrero/Brady method as outlined above. Were I a member of the Patriots football family, I would take Tom Brady’s advice on training methods with eternal thanks to Brady who, in my view, nailed the subject. And by the way here, how old is Mr. Brady? There is little likelihood that coach Belichick has any idea what he is talking about in terms of a fitness program for the best quarterback who has ever lived.
