What is on Fortismag.com?

Weight Training: in the weight training section we have categorized individual workouts as high resistance, low resistance, and a combination of high and low resistance.  High resistance training is performed with an emphasis on creating muscle mass, strength, and power.  These workouts have high weights and low repetitions.  Low resistance training is performed with an emphasis on creating endurance and toning of the muscles.  These workouts have low weights and high repetitions.  The high and low resistance training workouts are simply a combination of high weight/low repetition exercises and low weight/high repetition exercises.  These workouts are performed, generally, with no emphasis on one particular element of training.  Rather, they attempt to build strength, power, endurance, and toning all at the same time. 

Non-weight Training: in the non-weight training section we have plenty of categorized individual workouts in several different ways.  You can search under sprints, martial arts, stretching, calisthenics, and core training.  These workouts and programs usually can be done outside the gym.  They also can be the most effective and safe.  For younger teens and those who are over forty these workouts will minimize stress on the joints.

Sports-Specific Training: in the sports specific training section we have workouts and programs for hockey, basketball, football, and track.  Many of the workouts and programs in these categories can be found elsewhere on fortismag.  There are, however, some training workouts that are specifically designed for one of the sports, and can only be found in the sports specific training section.

Exercises: the exercise section is a database of every exercise that you may find on fortismag.com.  We are constantly trying to find new exercises and techniques to put in the exercise section. 

Nutritional information: in the nutritional information section you will find helpful advice on how to eat right while training.  It is just as important as the workout information that you will find on this website.  Without proper nutrition an athlete will not be able to properly and effectively achieve results from training.  Read this section carefully.

Train Hard. Eat Well. Live.
