The National Football League lost a legend today as former Oakland Raiders cornerback Jack Tatum died today.
It goes to show that no matter what your age you need to take care of your health.
According to 10TV.com, via Pro Football Talk, Tatum died of an apparent heart attack.
The tragic thing is that when athletes retire a lot of them just stop working out and let themselves go.
Now, if they continued working out, even at an old age, a lot of their current health problems would be gone, or would never happen.
I also fell victim to that as after I retired due to concussion I stopped working out, also not having money didn’t help either, and I ballooned up to 265 pounds after being 150 in college.
However, I have learned my lesson and I am down to 212, which would be lower, but I focused on getting my bench press sets to 225 pounds and squatting sets to 315.
Even children need to watch their health as eating unheathly and going over the amount of calories that one needs daily leads to obesity.
In the end, Tatum is just another example of the amount of time lost when a loved one doesn’t take care of themself.
