The Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research is the primary publication of the NSCA. “It is only with extraordinary efforts of the JSCR Editorial Board that this journal is possible,” said Dr. Nicholas Ratamess, JSCR Editor-in-Chief. “Dr. Anderson and Dr. Lloyd have demonstrated a commitment to editorial excellence and their exceptional hard work and dedication have greatly contributed to the journal’s success.”

“It is an honor to be recognized by the Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research for my service as one of the Senior Associate Editors,” Anderson said. “The Journal is the premier publication for our field and the work has been both challenging and rewarding. It is a blessing to serve with some of the best minds in our field and to share their insight with my colleagues at Taylor.”
