Understanding Individualism in Movement

Written by: Kevin Cann If you are a coach, I am sure that you have heard this line before, “This is the technique that works for me.”  I have participated in high level athletics my entire life and never have I seen “athletes” so keen on telling the coach what to do.  In all of my other sporting experiences it was the other way around, but that is a story for another day.

Building Technique as an Emergent Property

Written by: Kevin Cann For some reason technique in the powerlifting world seems to be quite controversial.  I have never participated in a sport that technique was not emphasized.  Seems quite a few coaches believe that as long as you can lift by the rules that your technique is fine.  I could not disagree with this statement more. Over the years I have gone back and forth with this.  Sheiko really hammered into me the importance of technique, but Read More

Can you gain strength in Powerlifting without gaining bodyweight? In this VIDEO, I break down three different ways I think you can gain strength without gaining weight.

You can improve things Read More

Executive Attention Network, Focus, and Triggers

Written by: Kevin Cann I have posted YouTube videos of the emotions of fear and frustration.  Experts are still trying to figure out what emotions actually are and there is quite a bit of disagreement here.  Emotions, for the purpose of our discussion, are nothing more than a certain release of neurochemistry.  How we act when this neurochemistry hits us is an entirely different story. Let us look at fear really quickly.  There are people that seek out that Read More
