Precision Powerlifting Systems is based out of Boston, Mass. Head Coach Kevin Cann leads the team through individualized programming leading up to local, regional, and national level powerlifting meets.
Kevin is dedicated to his work. He is a trustworthy and reliable coach with a sharp sense of humor. His coaching style is very straightforward; no frills. His attention to technique was evident from day one — and that is really important to me!

Working with Kevin and his Sheiko programming has brought consistency to my lifts and confidence to me as a person. I’ve traveled to nationals for the first time and competed with and against some of the best lifters in the country, and am planning my first trip to the Arnold. With the way we train, I know every time I step under the bar I am prepared and ready.
And while I love having Kevin as my coach, the best part of training with him is being a part of the PPS team. Powerlifting is inherently an individual sport – but PPS has developed into a tight-knit group of lifters who constantly support each other, go to meets together, and are just honestly good friends. We are working professionals who are also competitive lifters, and working together to be strong on the platform and in life.

The training usually consists of specific periods where certain physiological components are stressed more than others. The idea of periodization came about … Continue reading Is Periodization Necessary for Strength Sports?
Written by: Kevin Cann Everyone is their own little unique snowflake. American culture, especially embraces the individual much more than the group. We see this play out in powerlifting quite frequently in the way that technique is taught, or better yet, ignored. I have honestly struggled with this. In the past I was … Continue reading How Important/Individualized Should Technique Be?
Written by: Kevin Cann I will admit that that title is quite a bit of clickbait. I just did not know what to title it and wanted to get started. To be honest, I read a lot of the research. However, I am selective on what I read. I really do not give … Continue reading “Evidence Based” is the New “Functional Fitness”: IDGAF About Your Science
