Is Fortitude Training (FT) For You?
The name is not an accident: Fortitude Training is not easy, but few things worth having are. Fortitude Training (FT) is for the advanced, “hungry” bodybuilder. It’s for the motivated trainee who not only wants to realize his/her ultimate muscular potential, but also has, by nature or years of nurturing, the fortitude to regularly test and surpass previous limits in the gym. However, the FT trainee also should be intimately attuned to when those limits are being approached, both physically and mentally, both in the moment of an intense set, during a workout, over the course of weeks and months of training. A key feature of FT is applying your own common sense, experience and intuition so you can customize and optimize FT for you.

What is Fortitude Training?
Fortitude Training is a training system, including a dietary and nutritional supplementation approach, a template so to speak, strategically coupled to the rigorous resistance training program. Each aspect can be tailored to focus on gaining muscle mass or losing fat, in the context of biochemical inter-individuality (“we’re all a bit different”). The stress of training (frequency, volume, periodization scheme) and dietary and supplementation approach can be modified as needed. This book gives my suggestions, which, again, should be integrated with your own training experiences and know-how.

What about the Training Itself?
To match the stimulus with your recovery abilities, FT offers two Versions of this high-frequency resistance training program that target major muscle groups either three times (Basic Version) or four times per week (Turbo Version). Each Version has three Volume Tiers (Tiers I, II and III) which vary the number of sets (and sometime type of sets) for each muscle group. FT is structured to ensured progressive overload (heavy “Loading Sets,” a mainstay of getting bigger and stronger) within a system that varies the growth stimulus by including high repetition (“Pump Set”) and discontinuous sets (“Muscle Rounds”), as well as intensive stretching. These training variations keep the workouts fresh, injury-free, and customizable. Perhaps most importantly, the different Set Types of FT are intended to synergize, all within in one bodybuilding training regime, several different aspects of the resistance exercise stimulus that can foster muscle growth.

Is there a Fortitude Diet or Supplement Regimen?
Training-induced adaptations require recovery: Rest, diet, supplementation and a plethora of other life-style related factors. This e-book isn’t focused on tailoring a specific diet and supplement regimen to fit the your situation (pre-contest or off-season, personal history with or preferred diets, supplementation practices, or other specific goals). I do however, address the basic scenarios common to all bodybuilders: Muscle gain and fat loss. In my opinion, biochemical inter-individuality really calls for personalized attention when it comes to diet and supplementation. [This is a fancy way of saying we’re all different, from the way in which we process foods(2) or handle caloric excess(3) or deficiency(4), to the metabolism of foreign chemicals such as toxins and drugs(5).] However, I would be remiss if I didn’t outline some core nutritional strategies I think are tremendously effective in optimizing FT effectiveness. Must everyone using FT employ the tactics I outline here? Certainly not: If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Keep using the dietary and supplementation approaches that work for you. However, if some (or all) of what I outline makes sense and perhaps furthers your bodybuilding progress, then my mission has been accomplished.
