VIDEO: Leigh Wood – World Level Physiological Assessment

Boxer Leigh Wood is training hard at the Ingle gym in Sheffield and on their warm-weather training camps in Feutra Ventura. The featherweight prospect visited Sheffield Hallam University to be complete our World Level Physiological Assessment. The Nottingham born switch-hitter was put through a battery of tests that outline his physiological profile so he knows what type of training he should be focussing on.

This will help him in his preparation for his next fight, where he faces Barnsley’s Josh Wale in a ‘British Title Eliminator’ on the undercard of Kell Brook vs Diego Chaves.

Boxing Science would like to wish Leigh best wishes in his preparations and on fight night.

Kell Brook v Chaves

Danny Wilson co-founded Boxing Science in 2014 following building the successful Boxing program at Sheffield Hallam University where he has coached over 100 amateur and professional boxers as a strength and conditioning coach. He has also helped prepare Kell Brook for his mega-fight with Gennady Golovkin, and his Ingle Gym stablemates including Kid Galahad, Jordan Gill and Kyle Yousaf.

Away from Boxing, Danny is currently the Yorkshire regional strength and conditioning coach for England Golf and has experiences in youth and professional standards across a range of sports.

Danny is a United Kingdom Strength and Conditioning Association accredited strength and conditioning coach and has a Master of Science degree in Sport Science at Sheffield Hallam University, UK. For his final research project Danny profiled the physiological characteristics of amateur boxers and will share some of the novel findings on Boxing Science. Danny will be contributing to the Strength and Conditioning section by writing about the science behind the punch, training methods, working with junior athletes and case studies.
