The newly released GruntSled is a revolutionary type of push sled developed by MyoQuip. It has been tested by the strength and conditioning coaches at Sydney Uni Sport & Fitness and is now regularly used by elite athletes at the University across a wide range of sports.
The GruntSled is designed to be used as an on-field power developer with a number of alternative pushing positions. It has an optional shoulder pad attachment facilitating the athlete adopting an optimal pushing position with the back horizontal and the spine in normal alignment.
A major problem with conventional power sleds is that the static friction which the athlete has to overcome in order to start the sled moving is much greater than the sliding friction necessary to keep it moving forward. The GruntSled is equipped with chain attachment points so that the load can be progressively increased the further the sled is pushed.
