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!
I’ve been working with Kevin for about 16 months now and just have to say thank you for everything that he has done for me as a lifter. 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.

When we are stressed, … Continue reading Sports are Not a Stress Outlet and Being Elite is on You, Not Your Program
Written by: Kevin Cann I am going to combine two article topics here as there is some carryover. Just a warning that this could get very long, but reading is good for you. I follow this IG account “Flowrestling.” They show mostly wrestling highlights, and some of those kids are fast, strong, and extremely … Continue reading You Get What You Earn and Is Weightlifting that Different from Powerlifting?
Written by: Kevin Cann In a conversation with John Flagg (might have been on the Clinical Athlete podcast) he had pointed out that my training style is very similar to the training style of many weightlifters. To be honest I have never thought about that before. Weightlifting is the yacht club of the … Continue reading F#*$ Your Accessory Work
Written by Kevin Cann USAPL Northeast Regionals just wrapped up this past weekend. We had 18 lifters compete. This meet was run very well with some very strict judging. I loved this. This was a great opportunity for some of the newer lifters to get a taste of what it is like to be … Continue reading The Importance of Skill Acquisition in Powerlifting
