Precision Powerlifting Systems is based out of Boston, Mass. Head Coach Kevin Cann leads the team through individualized programming leading up to local, regional, national, and international 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!

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 A popular lifter/coach made an arbitrary list of exercises and gave each exercise a rating. I understand what he was trying to do, and it is really not a bad idea. Every coach has their own lists of exercises that they prefer. I could not disagree more with the ratings of a lot of … Continue reading Understanding Dynamic Correspondence
Kevin Cann At the end of every year I like to look back and see what I learned along the way. We need to rewind back to 2019 to see the true effects of 2020. 2019 was the year that I felt I really began to come into my own. My roster was the largest it has … Continue reading 2020 in Perspective
Written by: Kevin Cann People have a giant misunderstanding about what we do at Precision Powerlifting Systems. I was mentioned on a podcast where the host said that “Kevin is just going through his Westside phase.” He said it saying that every coach has gone through that phase. Ironically, he was having this conversation with a 24 … Continue reading Periodization of Max Effort Work
