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!
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 coaching, this was the area of programming that interested me the most. I think that it interested me the most, because the biggest question that I think every coach has is “Where do I start?” I was always confused as where to start for volumes and intensities. We have … Continue reading The Dichotomies of Training Intensities
Written by: Kevin Cann I had a conversation with Vince Anello and Jeremy Hartman last week. This conversation will be up on Boston’s Strongcast, probably next week. It was a really great episode, with a lot of good information, especially on the mental pieces of training. When we were signing off, Vince said “We are all brothers … Continue reading Few Thoughts About the Powerlifting Community
Written by: Kevin Cann I was having a conversation with a couple of people online that sparked the idea for this article. There is this current theme in the lifting world that everyone needs to find the best technique for them as an individual. This gives many lifters the ok to keep lifting how they are currently … Continue reading Heuristics with Technique
