Tom Brady is known for constantly seeking new offseason training methods and this week he looked in an unusual place: A sumo stable.
Brady, who is on a promotional tour in Asia, worked out with the 355-pound sumo wrestler Goeido and asked the trainers questions about their sport, which requires a great deal of balance and power.
“For them to welcome me means very much to me. It’s hard to describe in words how special that was,” Brady told the Kyodo News.
When it comes to offseason workouts, a lineman could probably benefit more from sumo training than a quarterback could, but Brady will leave no stone unturned in his quest to keep playing at a high level into his mid-40s.
