The first book by New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady—the five-time Super Bowl champion who is still reaching unimaginable heights of excellence at forty years old—a gorgeously illustrated and deeply practical “athlete’s bible” that reveals Brady’s revolutionary approach to sustained peak performance for athletes of all kinds and all ages.

In modern sports, some athletes have managed to transcend their competition in a way that no one will ever forget: Jordan. Jeter. Ali. Williams. These elite legends have changed the game, achieved the unthinkable, and pushed their bodies to unbelievable limits. Joining their exclusive ranks is Tom Brady.

“Brady is the healthiest great champion the NFL has ever had, both physically and mentally” (Sally Jenkins, The Washington Post). The longtime New England Patriots quarterback, who in 2017 achieved his fifth Super Bowl win and fourth Super Bowl MVP award, is widely regarded as an athlete whose training and determination pushed him from a mediocre draft position to the most-revered and respected professional football player of his generation.

In The TB12 Method, Tom Brady explains how he developed his groundbreaking approach to long-term fitness, presenting a comprehensive, step-by-step guide to his personal practice. Brady offers the principles behind pliability, which is at the heart of a new paradigm shift and movement toward a more natural, healthier way of exercising, training, and living—and one that challenges some commonly held assumptions around health and wellness. Filled with lessons learned from Brady’s own peak performance training, and step-by-step action steps to help readers develop and maintain their own peak performance, The TB12 Method also advocates for more effective approaches to strength training, hydration, nutrition, supplementation, cognitive fitness, recovery, and other lifestyle choices that dramatically decrease the risk of injury while amplifying and extending performance, as well as quality of life.

After using his methods for over a decade, Brady believes that the TB12 approach has made him—and can make any athlete, male or female, in any sport and at any level—achieve their own peak performance. With instructions, drills, photos, in-depth case studies that Brady himself has used, as well as personal anecdotes and experiences from on and off the field, The TB12 Method is the only book an athlete will ever need, a playbook from Brady himself that will change the game.

In boyhood, Louis Zamperini was an incorrigible delinquent. As a teenager, he channeled his defiance into running, discovering a prodigious talent that had carried him to the Berlin Olympics. But when World War II began, the athlete became an airman, embarking on a journey that led to a doomed flight on a May afternoon in 1943. When his Army Air Forces bomber crashed into the Pacific Ocean, against all odds, Zamperini survived, adrift on a foundering life raft. Ahead of Zamperini lay thousands of miles of open ocean, leaping sharks, thirst and starvation, enemy aircraft, and, beyond, a trial even greater. Driven to the limits of endurance, Zamperini would answer desperation with ingenuity; suffering with hope, resolve, and humor; brutality with rebellion. His fate, whether triumph or tragedy, would be suspended on the fraying wire of his will.

Tom Brady
 Com método inovador que alia diferentes técnicas de treinamento, nutrição e o conceito de maleabilidade muscular, o astro da NFL Tom Brady cria um programa que ajuda atletas profissionais e amadores a atingirem seus potenciais máximos dentro e fora do ambiente esportivo.

 

Tom Brady é um dos atletas mais importantes dos Estados Unidos e já levou o New England Patriots a mais títulos do que qualquer outro quarterback na história da NFL (National Football League). Aos 40 anos, segue colecionando vitórias e exibindo um condicionamento físico que o mantém em destaque entre atletas de elite de todas as idades. Neste livro, ele compartilha o segredo de sua bem-sucedida e longa carreira como jogador de futebol americano profissional e apresenta o método capaz de evitar lesões e impulsionar o atleta ao seu potencial máximo.

Seu Método TB12 é tanto um programa de treino quanto um estilo de vida que permitiu que Brady permanecesse no auge de sua carreira por tantos anos. Uma bíblia atlética — que inclui regras de hidratação, nutrição, exercícios de maleabilidade muscular e orientações para o repouso pleno do corpo — para aqueles  comprometidos com uma vida saudável, sejam profissionais ou amadores, homens ou mulheres de qualquer idade que desejem permanecer vitalizados.

Com a proposta de revolucionar o antigo modelo esportivo e de condicionamento que as estatísticas vivem nos provando ser incompleto, Brady assume, com este livro, a missão de mostrar a técnicos, pais, treinadores, atletas e pessoas em busca de um um estilo mais saudável que o treinamento de maleabilidade permitirá que atinjam qualquer objetivo que estabeleçam para si mesmos.
