Frequently Asked Questions
FAQ


STRENGTH & CONDITIONING:

First-year student-athletes will be receiving an email shortly from Volt Athletics. Volt is the online strength & conditioning platform that we use. Every first-year student-athlete will begin with a 3-week foundation block. You might find that some of the exercises are easier than what you are used to, since I am not there to coach you I use this block as a way to prepare your body for the more challenging blocks ahead. You will find everything that you need on the Volt website once you activate your account (https://app.voltathletics.com/). I recommend that you download the Volt: #1 Al Work out app from the app store. Returners should continue with their lifts on Volt and use the "Movement Replacement" function to accommodate the equipment they have available.

Conditioning programs will be delivered via email.

Wheaton College Athletics provides strength and conditioning programming to support students in their individual fitness efforts. Since there will be no in-person supervision by Wheaton staff available to you while you perform the strength and conditioning activities, it is your responsibility to limit your participation in any activities to the extent that it is safe and reasonable for you to do so at your own discretion. If you are unsure of or have concerns about how to best practice any activity, you should contact Laura Murphy (murphy_laura@wheatoncollege.edu) for more information. It is also important that you identify a safe space in which to perform any activities.

As with any activity, there may be risks. Risks include bodily injury which may be severe or not, including death, or property damage caused by contact with personal property while participating in the activity. This is not a complete list of all risks, many of which may be unique to an individual or location. By participating in any activity offered or presented by Wheaton Athletics you understand and agree that neither Wheaton College nor its employees are responsible for any bodily or personal injury or other damage that you or any person may sustain or cause as a result of practicing or participating in such activities.
