In this VIDEO, I go over a user-submitted question about the wrists rolling in the bench press. Since the person didn’t give any details about their specific situation, I go over and breakdown the general topic. First off, I go over how you should diagnose the problem so you know when it’s occurring. Is it only happening with max weights or with any weight?

Who Are You?

Written By: Kevin Cann This is the most important question that anyone could ask you.  When I ask this question, I am not asking your name, but instead asking who you are at the deepest of levels.  You can’t be great, unless you truly know who you are.

In this VIDEO, I do an overview of cutting weight the week of a Powerlifting meet. In many weight class sports, including Powerlifting, athletes manipulate their bodyweight the week of a competition in order to compete in a lower weight class.

My Personal and Coaching Philosophy

Written by: Kevin Cann The last year has been pretty rough for a lot of us.  I had a team of over 50 strong, 10 of which were qualified for USAPL Nationals.  We were cruising right along as a team.  Then the pandemic hit and I saw a large portion of my roster quit the sport of powerlifting all together.

High Performance Cannot Be Found in a Spreadsheet

Written by: Kevin Cann Powerlifting seems to be in this fad of “evidence based” coaching and tracking every piece of data, to “individualize” the program for each lifter.  The internet eats this shit up too.  Why wouldn’t they?  It is much easier to just pay someone for a fancy program than it is to actually develop the skills required for high performance.
