Chicago Women’s RFC secured a nutrition sponsor for 2016/17

Ruck Science Logo

Rugby season is right around the corner! In preparation for the physically demanding season it with our pleasure to announce that we have secured a nutrition sponsor in Ruck Science for the upcoming season! We are grateful of our partnership with a supplement company started by rugby players, designed for rugby players!


About Ruck Science

This company differs from any other supplement company out there. The team at Ruck Science has designed supplements specifically for the fellow rugger. They do not try and appeal to football, wrestling, baseball etc… Ruck Science is based down in Austin Texas and was started by a group of ruggers that grew tired of all the supplements on the market geared towards bodybuilders as we all know, rugby players don’t necessarily need more muscle to perform better. But we all want to perform better and recover faster which is what Ruck Science promises.


About their products

They feature a variety of products to cater towards your strength and fitness needs. Their pre-workout ‘Twitch Faster’ and BCAA stack ‘No2 Max’ are highly reviewed and part of their bundle pack ‘Ruck Everything’. You can view more of the products on their online store. Ruck Science only uses premium ingredients in every container!


100% W.A.D.A Compliant

Like most supplement companies, Ruck Science says that their supplements contain only the best ingredients. But these guys seem to really mean it. Independent tests have shown that their products have zero ingredients that are on the World Anti Doping Authority banned substances list which makes them 100% W.A.D.A compliant. You can use the W.A.D.A. iphone app to confirm this claim. They also provide batch testing results upon request.


Sponsorship Agreement

Ruck Science is on board for the 2016/17 season! And perhaps even longer than that. Since it’s not a typical sponsorship agreement, there’s every chance that they’ll continue to send us donations for a long time as long as we’re happy to tell people about them.


How to get started with Ruck Science

Two things to keep in mind if you want to try out Ruck Science and compare them to other supplement manufacturers:

  1. Sign up for Rucks (their rewards program) and you’ll get $5 to spend before your first purchase.

  2. Check out the rugby sample stack which has all 4 of their custom rugby supplement blends in a handy carrying stack for just $20.

  3. Enter “Chicago Womens” as your rugby club during the checkout process so they know where to send the donations!

There’s a bunch of free stuff on their site including rugby-specific nutrition and training protocols on their rugby training blog.
