Why I Love Lifting Heavy

Written by: Kevin Cann Sports are a way for us to explore our inner makeup.  To see what drives us and understand ourselves better.  Sports then affords us the opportunity to work towards becoming the person that we want to become.  Everyone should participate in competitive sports in my opinion, but of course I am biased. These last few months of training have been as brutal of a stretch as I have experienced in any sport that I Read More

Creating Stable Adaptations

Written by: Kevin Cann It gets easy to get caught up in the idea that pushing harder is always the right thing to do.  Even at times knowing better I will push things harder than I should.  Problem is, I am not 24 years old anymore. Our program uses submaximal reps to help stabilize adaptations.  I have found that these reps do not need to be very hard in order to accomplish that job.  Higher intensity lifting builds the Read More

How Covid Changed Me as a Coach

Written by: Kevin Cann Before the pandemic of 2020 hit, I was doing most of my coaching in person.  I love the atmosphere of being in person.  The intensity of the environment, people yelling, and weights banging.  These sounds become my beating heart in a training environment.  I love sports, and even more, I love to fucking compete. As a coach your programming and coaching needs to be an extension of who you are as a person.  I am more Read More

Results Driven vs Future Success

Written by: Kevin Cann This has been a topic that haunted me for most of my coaching career up to this point.  At the end of the day, I am in a results driven business.  Lifters seem to come in with an expectation that progress should happen very quickly and be unlimited.  As a coach do you just throw everything at them and get them really strong really quickly, or do you take a more patient approach? I Read More

This VIDEO is a meet recap for Amber Lopez at the 2021 USA Powerlifting Teen National Championships in Aurora, Colorado. Amber competed in the Teen 2 69 kg class where she broke the American record squat on her 2nd attempt and broke the American record total on her final deadlift. This was good enough to win the National Title for the class. In addition, her total was higher than the other raw 69 kg competitors Read More

Memory and Skill Acquisition

Written by: Kevin Cann When we are in the gym hitting repetitions, we are learning.  Since we are learning, our memory systems are involved in this process.  I believe we have 4 different memory systems, but today I am going to spend time discussing 2 of them. Coaches give lifters feedback on their lifts.  However, do lifters understand how to take this feedback and apply it underneath the barbell for the best results?  I feel many do not know Read More

How to Program Skill Learning

Written by: Kevin Cann Powerlifting is a skilled sport.  To be able to squat, bench press, and deadlift with maximal weights is a developed skill.  I think there is a major misconception on how we go about developing these skills. Malcom Gladwell made the “10,000 hour” rule a known concept.  Many coaches and athletes take this and think that they just need to put in the repetitions and eventually they will display high level performance. Of course, time Read More
