Precision Powerlifting Systems is based out of Boston, Mass. Head Coach Kevin Cann leads the team through individualized Sheiko-style 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 When I first started getting involved in powerlifting one major piece of information that was drilled into me was that you should not miss reps in training. This belief is still carried on strong within the powerlifting world and for good reasons. For one, making reps builds confidence through … Continue reading I would Rather Overshoot than Undershoot: Why I am not Concerned with Missed Reps
Written by: Kevin Cann I know in my last article I said I would answer some questions that I posed. I decided to answer them in a podcast that should be out this week instead. Instead I am going to show an example of a constraints led coaching approach in the sport of powerlifting. … Continue reading A Constraints Led Approach to Powerlifting: Knees Caving In
Written by; Kevin Cann I have not been coaching the sport of powerlifting for too long. This past Nationals was my 3rdone overall. It is pretty crazy to look back and see how I was doing things from then to now. In the beginning I told my lifters to just follow the program. … Continue reading Embracing the Uncertainty of Strength Training: What Do We Really Know About Volume?
