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.

Science tends to reduce complex systems into its parts and make some giant assumptions that the sum of those parts equals the whole. This reductionist … Continue reading Is the Body 650 Muscles or 1 Muscle?
Written by: Kevin Cann I have been around elite athletes my whole life. Whether I was playing on teams, or coaching them, I have been surrounded by high level athletes. When I was shoved into the world of powerlifting this changed a bit. I was fortunate enough to be coached by an elite, … Continue reading My Rant on Athlete Attitude in Powerlifting
Written by: Kevin Cann Over my 5 years of coaching powerlifting, I have tried everything. Extend that to the 10 years that I was coaching prior, and I have literally tried everything. As a coach it is easy to get caught up in looking for the next best thing. When this happens, … Continue reading Every Program Works: Why You Should Use Pieces of All of Them
