“My aim is to produce power players of the future, real game changers!”

Julian Wood, Power Hitting Specialist

Having spent plenty of time in the USA observing the training methods and biomechanics associated with baseball, Julian has devised his own patented, cricket-specific training programme that is proven to improve a batsman’s hitting power via the use of personally designed training aids and drills.
Since implementing his ‘Power Hitting’ programme in 2011, Julian has built an impressive CV, working as a consultant coach for Gloucestershire CCC, Hampshire CCC, Middlesex CCC and the ECB, with particular focus on their T20 campaigns and improving key batter’s hitting for the game’s shortest format. Other counties have seen Julian’s work up close and intend to get him involved for the 2015 NatWest T20 Blast onwards. Julian has also worked closely with some of England’s premier T20 performers on an individual basis – in fact he worked closely with Alex Hales and Michael Lumb ahead of the recent Big Bash League in Australia.
With T20 cricket being a truly global phenomenon, Julian is looking to take his Power Hitting programme worldwide and would relish working with some of the best players in franchise T20 cricket.

What Andy Flower says:
Andy Flower on Julian Wood
Andy Flower (Former England Head Coach)
“The game has changed significantly in a very short period of time. Right at the front of that change, and embodying the change itself is Julian Wood. With a vision for the future, and a passion and expertise for his subject that ensures he is himself a leader in this field, Julian is opening batsmen's and coaches' eyes to another way of doing things. From the biomechanics to the principles of baseball and on to the sheer joy of hitting the ball clean and hard and far, Julian is at the forefront of a fast-evolving game for batsmen and coaches alike.”
BBC News - Cricket Power Hitting Feature,
June 2017
Watch the recent BBC news feature showing Julian Wood explaining to BBC’s Ben Croucher, the importance of hitting the ball as hard as you can – “there’s no fielders in the air!”

Ben Stokes, Joe Root and Sam Billings have all benefitted from Julian’s expertise.

“A revolution of the T20 variety”.
Julian with Scott Coolbaugh
Julian Wood has spent the last 4 years working with former Texas Rangers Hitting coach, Scott Coolbaugh, in the Major League Baseball (MLB), and has combined the brutality of baseball hitting using the mechanics designed to maximise the body's ability to generate, then transfer force through the ball with the skills of cricket and come up with a power hitting programme guaranteed to enable you to hit the ball harder and further!!
