How do I insert an Unload or Off Week?

Insert Unload and Off Weeks

You can edit the Volt training calendar to accommodate for vacation, illness, or other events that might “interrupt” the training plan. By inserting an Unload or Off Week, Cortex™ will adjust the training calendar to optimize training moving forward.

First, you will need to log into your Volt account via the web. You can log in at Once logged in navigate to Training, then Calendar. The 52-week periodized training calendar will be displayed in week-long units, organized by block. (Each block is usually 3 weeks long.) Simply click on any week to insert either an Unload or Off Week. An Unload Week will consist of workouts with reduced volume, while an Off Week results in a week with no workouts at all. 

The training calendar will automatically adjust to any changes you make, rearranging the block structure to accommodate your changes and optimizing toward performance goals.

Important Note:

When making changes to a program calendar, it is worth noting that applied changes to the current week, will only appear for athletes that have not yet started a workout. If you change root programs or make calendar adjustment, you will override and erase your training and training editor adjustments for all future training weeks.
