MyoThrusta used with elastic bands

The video below shows a MyoThrusta being used in single-legged mode at the Sydney Uni gymnasium. Note the use of additional elastic bands connecting the weight bar to the machine frame. These are designed to increase tension as the exerciser moves to full leg extension.

The MyoThrusta is being operated by Tom Shaw, a member of Sydney University Rugby Club's Colts squad. Players in the EDS (Elite Development Squad) program such as Tom maintain a heavy weight training program year round, making extensive use of the MyoQuip MyoThrusta and MyoTruk for the development of lower body strength and muscle mass.
