    Error Correction: Five Tips to Help “Fix It”
    Five evidence-based motor learning practices can bridge the gap between knowing what correction needs to be made and developing effective strategies to facilitate skill acquisition.
    Power Clean
    The power clean is similar to the power snatch but with two major differences. Firstly, the final bar position is at the shoulders, not over the head, and secondly, the grip is approximately shoulder-width apart, whereas the snatch has a considerably wider grip.
    Sprint Interval Training
    This study assessed the performance effects of a novel short-term and highly accessible training protocol based on maximal shuttle runs in the field.
    The Development of Strength and Conditioning within Domestic Cricket in Pakistan—A Personal Perspective
    This is my story of how a strength and conditioning coach influenced not only one of Pakistan’s up and coming cricket team’s approach to fitness and lifestyle, but also that of the wider community.
    Functional and Nonfunctional Overreaching and Overtraining
    If manipulation of the training variables is not tailored correctly to the desired adaptations and specific training goals, an athlete can experience symptoms of nonfunctional overreach. If this process continues, the athlete can develop overtraining syndrome.
    Effects of Exercise on Osteoporosis: Part 4
    Exercise and physical activity are necessary for the development of optimal bone health, as well as the preservation of bone mass density (BMD) throughout life. It is imperative, as health and fitness professionals, to understand the impact of exercise on skeletal health and overall wellness and to serve as an educational resource for clients.
    Practical Methods for the Strength and Conditioning Coach to Develop Student-Athlete Leadership—Part II
    This article is the second part of a two-part series that considers the potential role strength and conditioning coaches have in developing student-athlete leadership.
    The Perception and Progression of the Female Athlete
    Female athletes in the United States have made great progress in sports since Title IX was enacted in 1972. Despite the progress they have made, female athletes have yet to gain full recognition for their athleticism and their achievements. The purpose of this article is to break down the stigma female athletes have received over the years and shine light on the differences that make female athletes a reward to train.
    Anatomical Core – Neural Integration
    Isolated muscle training methods do not necessarily transfer to better sports performance, because technique as well as strength contributes to successful performance. Resistance training for dynamic sports must involve ground-based movements that incorporate the coordinated stabilizing and dynamic functions of multiple muscles.
    The Role of Kettlebells in Strength and Conditioning
    Studies support the use of kettlebells for improving power, although evidence for using them to improve strength and aerobic fitness is still equivocal. Studies investigating the biomechanical properties of kettlebell training have been fruitful, and it may be useful for developing sprint running performance and for injury prevention.
