Welcome to Volume 42, the 2020 edition of the Strength and Conditioning Journal!
I would like to recognize many groups of people who help make the SCJ a top-quality journal. We have a first-class senior editorial team composed of a Managing Editor/Assistant and Associate Editors in Chief, along with an outstanding group of Associate Editors and Column Editors. The authors who submit to the SCJ are some of the top authorities in the world on strength and conditioning. The "unsung heroes" of the review process are the reviewers who get very little recognition. And it is always a pleasure to work with our publisher, LWW, as well as our NSCA national office staff. I would like to offer my sincere gratitude to all these individuals for a job well done!
We hope you enjoy this issue of the SCJ! If you need assistance in preparing a submission to the SCJ, please contact the Managing Editor; SCJManagingEditor@gmail.com.
