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.

Written by: Kevin Cann I am fortunate enough to coach quite a few other coaches. We always have some good conversations and I enjoy watching their improvements as a coach just as much as watching their totals grow. This last week I felt as if I had the same conversation a handful … Continue reading Coaching a Dynamic Systems Approach: This is a Guide not a Solution
Written by: Kevin Cann PPS just had 17 lifters compete this past weekend. 5 weeks out from this meet I made the decision to go with my gut and completely change how we were doing things. Some of these changes were made by me in person on the fly as I directed the team … Continue reading Dynamic Systems Theory: In with the New and Out with the Old
Written by: Kevin Cann I put up a very quick post about this yesterday and it garnished a bit of attention. Due to that attention, I want to write it all out for a better understanding since we should not just be quoting Instagram. I have always struggled to understand overtraining in … Continue reading You Are Not Overtraining: Unless You Believe You Are
