Tom Brady released his first book this week. It's ... interesting. Sports Illustrated reports The TB12 Method: How to Achieve a Lifetime of Sustained Peak Performance contains "some extremely questionable scientific claims and some excellent photos of Tom Brady." That questionable science starts with "pliable" muscles, which the Patriots quarterback credits for his longevity in football, according to the New York Times.
Brady claims running and weight-lifting lead to dense, easily injured muscles. Pliable muscles—a non-scientific term that one expert calls "balderdash"—apparently absorb stress to decrease the likelihood of injury. Brady says you can get pliable muscles through "targeted, deep-force muscle work" and "the daily acts of living that complement my off-field life."
