How does the Volt training calendar work?

For Sport Performance Programs


The purpose of this article is to outline the training calendar for athletes training on Volt’s Sport Performance programs and to provide insights on how you can best navigate the training calendar to get the most out of your Volt Sport Performance training program.

How it works:

The Sport Performance training calendar is a self-paced training schedule similar to the General Fitness and Tactical training calendar, but your training will be organized based on your sport season. Your sport season is determined by specific dates you set on your calendar: Training Start date, Season Start date, and Season End date. The Training Start is the date you wish to begin preparing for your sports season. The Season Start is that date you have finished preparing and are now ready for game/match/race season. Your Season End date is the date that your game/match/race season has concluded. Each start date you set will default to the Sunday of that week, and each end date you set will default to the Saturday for that week. 

How to set training dates:

If your current training calendar has come to an end and you want to reset your training calendar, follow these steps.

  • Step 1: Navigate to the menu icon in the top left
  • Step 2: Tap on Settings
  • Step 3: Tap on Edit Training Calendar
  • Step 4: Tap on the Edit button in the top right corner
  • Step 5: You can select to have changes apply to the current week or apply to next week*

*Note: Any changes applied to your current week will override your current week’s progress and delete any completed workouts you have for the current week.


Training Start 

This is the date you wish to start your Preparatory (off-season) Phase. Most programs have 3 workouts/week during this phase. This date will indicate the start date (or new start date) of your Volt Preparatory (off-season) Phase.

Season Start

This is the date when your training will transition into your Competitive (in-season) Phase, when training volume is reduced to 2 workouts/week. This date should be the date of your event or the start of your season.

*Note: If you do not have a season, just push this date out as far as possible (you can push it out up to 365 days from your training start date). You can always adjust these dates for the next year. 

Season End 

This is the date that your in-season comes to an end. Your training will transition into your Transitional (post-season) Phase, with 3 workouts/week.

Pro tip:

You have to have all 3 of these dates and these dates need to fall within 365 days of each other. We will automatically set your start date to be the Sunday of the week of your training, so don't be surprised when the dates default to the Sunday of your training week that you'd like to get started.
