Importance of Warming Up
We encourage everyone to perform an adequate warm-up before starting a workout. Warming up increases your core body temperature by pumping blood to working muscles, which can help mitigate injuries and improve your ability to perform while completing your workout.
When you start your session, you will be asked to complete a warm-up and you will be given a list of our different warm-up options. Choose one and tap Start Warm-Up. If you do your own warm-up outside of Volt, feel free to hit Skip in the upper right corner to jump straight into your workout.
You can also add a warm-up to your session by selecting "Add Activity." Select the Warm-up you would like to add, and then select "Add to Start." This will then add a Warm-up routine to the start of your workout session.
Warm-ups are based on our circuit workouts so Volt will automatically progress you through each movement with timers and audible guidance.
As a coach, you can assign Warm-up Routines to your athletes by using the Training Editor.
