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.

Written by: Kevin Cann Higher frequency training seems to be all the craze within the powerlifting world. I was curious when and why it had started so I did some digging around. Seems that Mike Zourdos. Dissertation on DUP was published in 2012 and coincides with the explosion in raw powerlifting. I remember … Continue reading Importance of Speed Work and Why I am Moving Further Away from High Frequency
Written by: Kevin Cann The force-velocity curve is a major piece of the curriculum in both undergrad and grad school in this field. I have been coaching for about 15 years now. The majority of that time was spent coaching high school athletes.
