The Scrum Truk is an indoor Sport Specific training tool to help develop horizontal strength with direct carry over to sports such as rugby, bobsleigh and sprinting.
Proudly manufactured here in the UK to order. Lead time is 4-6 weeks, however during busy period this may extend to 8 weeks.
Once ordered one of the team will make contact to discuss your frame and upholstery colours, any custom branding and delivery details.
Benefits of using the machine:
realistically simulates the compressive forces of the live scrum and generates effective counter-resistance.
is ideal for observing and teaching correct body position and delivery of pushing force.
facilitates individual testing of lower body strength in a familiar and comfortable body position (Unlike the Barbell Squat, the results do not depend on mastery of a complicated movement).
enhances the capacity to effectively lift and support the lineout jumper.
does not replace the scrum machine, rather the two machines complement one another.*
Whilst exercising with ScrumTruk, the lower spine adopts moderate curvature necessary for effective pushing and avoidance of lower back strain. This position also triggers isometric contraction of the stabilising muscles of the pelvic and abdominal regions.
As the body position is the “low drive” position, it can and should be used by other positions in rugby as the it closely resembles the tackle and also clearing a ruck. As the users feet can be used staggered or parallel, this really does make it a multi sport training tool.
