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.

An example of a shared ontology is religion. … Continue reading Hierarchies and Hypertrophy
Written by: Kevin Cann The documentary “Westside vs the World” was released last week. I thought this was a very well-done documentary and I would highly recommend it. The culture of Westside is absolutely fascinating. The last few weeks I have gone back and listened to some of the Westside podcasts and read … Continue reading Westside May Have Been Right, but for the Wrong Reasons
Written by Kevin Cann Every coach and personal trainer out there wants to tell every lifter that their methods can increase performance while decreasing injury risk. They may believe this, but I am going to tell you that it is absolute bullshit. I know, because I used to say and believe those things. … Continue reading Building Resiliency: It is Sometimes Sucking it Up
Written by: Kevin Cann I had posted a research article on Instagram yesterday that seemed to ruffle a lot of feathers. This actually came as a surprise to me. When I was writing it, I didn’t think many people would even notice. I typically do not get a lot of comments on … Continue reading Why Coaches Need a Theoretical Framework
