London Rowing Club Head Coach Phil Bourguignon talks about his use of Gen3 Kinematic's MyoTruk in the training of his athletes.
The athlete in the video is Olympian James Clarke who has competed for Great Britain at the Beijing Olympics as well as at the World Championships for the last two years. After getting injured last year, James is training hard to earn his place in the heavyweight Men's eight for the Olympics at London 2012. The MyoThrusta and MyoTruk have been key components in his training as he has progressed to full fitness
Phil talks about how the MyoTruk has enabled him to achieve his success in rowing so far, and the way in which the MyoTruk is able to train his rowers specifically to replicate the rowing movements.
Phil highlights the fact that the MyoTruk enables him to train his athletes with a highly reduced risk of injury due to the body position in which the athlete does the exercise. There is no adverse loading through the spine, hips and knees and the spine stays flat throughout the movement.
