The former athlete

What makes former high school athletes or college athletes let themselves go after their careers are over? They used to be chilsed, mobile, and in great health. You look at them now and you cannot even tell they played sports. I understand that life has a way of changing things... kids, work, and a flat out busy schedule. I think that mostly these former athletes have lost their focus on health. There is no longer a reason to stay in shape. In their younger days they had to stay in shape to perform well in their sport.

The older these former athletes get the more the excuse about time arises. It is a bunch of crock because many people waste time watching hours of TV, hanging out with friends, and various activities. I am not saying that you should not have a life outside of staying in shape. How hard is it to get a 30 minute workout three times a week? Some of you all might say I spend more time than that and still look terrible. Maybe you need to pick your exercises more wisely or you still have your hands in the cookie jar. Until these former athletes get sick of their pot belly roast they will forever complain about how great they used to look. Make up your mind, get a good workout plan, and work hard. You can look better than you used to look in your former days if you want it bad enough. Get back to Vernon Davis shape!
