This Special Issue will provide knowledge related to strength and conditioning for fitness and sport performance. It is designed for those interested in the many topics that concern strength and conditioning, in relation to advanced scientific inquiries of program design, the periodization of training and anaerobic strength, and power testing. Topics will focus on postactivation potentiation, neuromuscular adaptations to resistance training, motor unit recruitment, and muscle fiber types. Emphases will be placed on investigations leading to increased human performance through manipulation of bioenergetics, biomechanics, and the endocrine system. Additionally, practical applications to training and performance will be stressed, so as to influence daily exercise protocols.
