The National Strength and Conditioning Association places a premium on research and peer-reviewed publications. We seek to ask the probing questions concerning conditioning, sport and exercise, ranging from the effects of training programs on physical performance and function to the underlying biological basis for exercise performance. Still, as a coach you need more than theory. These publications proudly bridge the gap, giving exercise, health and fitness professionals practical, real-world application.
