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 know many programs are heavy volume based. This is not to say that they do not work. They definitely can. I was on one for 3 years working with Boris Sheiko. My number of lifts stayed very close to the same over that time period, but my maxes were … Continue reading Why More Volume is not the Answer
Written by: Kevin Cann I have discussed self-organization a lot with the dynamical systems theory of skill acquisition. I firmly believe that the coach should be a guide in the background, allowing the athlete to explore what works best for them. I still believe this. This was not where I went wrong. The … Continue reading Where I Went Wrong with Self-Organization
Written by: Kevin Cann I have been doing quite a bit of reflecting lately. It is pretty crazy to think of where PPS started, and where we are now. Not even just the growth of the totals of the lifters, but in the culture that we have cultivated. The training environment … Continue reading The Birth of Constraints-Led Conjugate
