Understanding Dynamic Correspondence

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 the exercises, but that is not what this article is about. Dynamic Correspondence (DC) was defined by Yuri Verkoshansky in Read More

This video goes over my favorite lower body accessory exercises for the sport of Powerlifting. These are exercises that I use most often with my Squats & Science athletes, and that I have in my various free programs.

2020 in Perspective

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 ever been and also the strongest it had ever been.  We had more women that squatted 300lbs than didn’t squat 300lbs Read More

Periodization of Max Effort Work

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.

This video goes over how to use leg drive in the bench press. Many lifters have trouble figuring out how to use leg drive or have their butt come up when they use leg drive. So in this video, I breakdown a couple of key points when it comes to leg drive. I go over why you should be driving the feet horizontally, not vertically. And I also go over why you should be using Read More

Knees Caving in is Weak ADDuctors, It is Not Using Them More, or Weak Abductors, Knees Forward Also Makes No Sense

Written by: Kevin Cann I have this conversation a few times now in the last couple of weeks.  There seems to be some misunderstanding in regard to the execution of the squat and how to involve the most muscle mass. There seems to be this trend to drive the knees forward and not out to initiate the squat.  One person told me that the argument was that it allows us to use our hip adductors more.  That thought Read More
