Today was the first day of training camp for Mr Woodhouse. We started with a weigh in and a full body composition test with my body stat machine. This would mean that we could track both his lean tissue and fat weight during the camp. Curtis was going to be fighting at light welterweight (140lbs or 10st). It was important to build strength without adding unnecessary muscle weight.
I wanted to ensure that Curtis made the weight safely, didn’t have to crash the last few pounds off for the weigh in in order to maintain his strength, speed and power for the fight.
Ex professional Footballer and current professional boxer Curtis Woodhouse has just recruited ex house and team mate Owen James as his new Strength and Conditioning Coach.
Curtis and I go back a long way. We used to be apprentices and young professionals together at Sheffield United F.C……He continued in the world of football whilst I did a degree at Loughborough University, and also trained as a sports massage therapist and strength and conditioning coach.
After having chatted with Curtis whilst massaging him before his English title fight, I thought that there were a few things we could work on in order to improve his fitness, strength and punching power.
Our 12 week training plan starts in November….bring it on!
