I am Kenney D. Phillips. I have lifted in many Federations over the last forty years but prefer to lift in the 100% Raw Federation.
I would like to answer any questions You may have
concerning lifting or routines Chris has listed on this site.Chris Lift has all the info You need to get into shape, gain strength, gain or lose weight.
The information is free, questions will be answered by email, click icon at the bottom of this page. We ask people who visit this site to purchase products through one of our affiliates, we would greatly appreciate your business.
We provide simple factual information and quality routines to help those who really
want to make positive gains. If you will follow the routines exactly as written you will make the
gains you seek. The topics below are questions many lifters ask about. Chris has many advanced routines availble depending on what You are trying to accomplish.
Type Of GYM
The GYM is not the place for people who think going to the GYM is a social event. We
mean business and so should you. Real Powerlifters, Bodybuilders or anyone who really wants
to improve belongs in a black steel GYM (if possible) where the membership pushes each other
to obtain success. If you want to succeed and not just go to some
Chromed Up Social Club, be very careful where you workout. The environment is very important. You need to be around people who are
driven to succeed. If You are only looking for a place to do light dumb bell work, walk on a treadmill and pretend to be lifting on some machine, go to Planet Fitness, Balley's or some other GYM of that sort
and You will probably fit right in as
they cater to this type of a lifter. I am glad those GYM'S are doing well as they keep those type of lifters out of our GYM and out of our way. If You are serious about being big time, find a old school hard nosed black steel GYM with real agressive lifters that mean business, and learn from them.
Gain Muscle Mass...Strength
If you want to increase your muscle mass you should not train more than four times a week.
You need to work as heavy as possible with the majority of your sets in the five to eight
and not spend your time on high rep or isolation sets. When successful at a
workout weight you increase the weight next workout by five pounds. Strength athletes and
champion powerlifters generally use a two day bench routine with rep sets in the one to five range and one to three range for the majority of their routines
and lift very heavy. Legs and back are worked on separate days. We prefer a three day bench and fitness routine
with the routine varied to combine both powerlifting and bodybuilding. At some
point you may want to concentrate only on one sport but for the majority of all
people our basic workout routine is better. You must incorporate into your workout cardio of
some type at the end of your lifting. Sometimes walking a mile in about fifteen minutes before
working out helps you
Type of Lifter
The primary difference in powerlifting and bodybuilding is that bodybuilders want to isolate
and some will also high rep each muscle group. Bodybuilders are more interested in their appearance than how much they can lift for a single rep thus they watch their diet and do many sets and reps which does not always lead to great strength for a single rep.
Powerlifters want to get the whole body to work
as one unit to move more weight for one rep. Powerlifters work generally in the one to five rep range during most worouts with lower reps and heavier weights within sixty days of a meet.
We want to combine the two types of workouts in order to be as strong as you look and look as
strong as you are. This approach seems to work well for the average person not going to either extreme. After a period of time a few may advance or show potential that
leans towards bodybuilding or powerlifting and they are the ones who need to then make a decision as to which road they want to explore and concentrate on that type of lifting.
We like the Matt Kroc approach of being at the top of his game in both arenas but that does not seem to work for many lifters. You need to remember, just because some so called
Big Lifter does things one way and achieves success does not mean his way is the only way to achieve your goals. Everyone is
different, there are many roads to get where you want to go. I used to body-build for six months then switch to a powerlifter workout for six months which seemed to help me achieve though
most say this approach does not work. If You are serious about being a powerlifter or bodybuilder then You need to forget about the combination type lifter and concentrate on being a bodybuilder
or powerlifter and do what is necessary to advance in those areas, they are not the same thing, not even close. If You want to be a raw powerlifter then forget the equipment, if You
want to be an equiped powerlifter or bench shirt artist then concentrate only on those types of lifts. Some may be able to do both well but not many.
Yes, I know that most are just a waste of money but our people make positive gains.
We have people tell us that they have been working with a personal trainer for a period of
time and made little progress. This is common. Personal Trainers are after your money.
Many personal trainers think that if you make too much progress, get the knowledge you need,
along with being self motivated that you won't keep paying them. There is enough information on this site to make anyone successful if they will put forth the
effort. Many times you will find more information from someone in a GYM who is actually doing things and not trying to make a buck
off of you. Ask these people for help and do not be intimidated to talk to the guy benching 400+ pounds or looking the way you want to
look. They will help you and some will provide a lot of information and motivation without costing you a dime. Remember when you are asked
for help, Do Unto Others As You Would Have Them Do Unto You.
A fat diet seems to cause a decrease in the immune system and shortens life in lab animals. A
rule of thumb is to have (good carbs) 2/3-3/4 plate of fruit, orange, red and green vegetables
with the balance being cold water fish. You should drink water and herbal tea. This type of
diet is best for most people to be lean and healthy. Powerlifters and competition bodybuilders
may eat and supplement considerably more in the protein department though that is not always
the best diet for your health.
You Must WORK hard!!
Many people want to go to the GYM and expect being in shape to just happen, it does not. You
have to be determined to push yourself, not quit or whine over every little ache or pain. You have to
work hard at whatever you decide to do and not quit, ever. The main thing is for your body to
work in motion/oxygen with increasing intensity. You can have the body and strength you want if you
will decide you are going to be as Strong As You Look and Look As Strong As You Are.
You have to be determined to do what is necessary, and then do it.
Don't Procrastinate Set Goals
You cannot put off getting into shape until some future magical date. This is why the GYM
business thrives in January, February and then declines. When you start something you don't quit.
When you plan to do something positive, don't put it off. How many young people are
going to sit out a semester of college, wind up in the work force and never go back to
finish their degree? How many of you are going to go see a parent or grandparent next week and
just never get around to going, until its too late. Don't do this.
Why not get what you can when you can and work to make the future what You want? This applies to
school, work, accepting Jesus or whatever. You take advantage of whatever is available today, prepare for
the future and hope your still around to reap the rewards. Don't put off what you can do now for what
you could do in the future. You don't know what may happen.
This same theory applies to contest lifting. We know several lifters who kept getting hurt or putting off
things for the big kill so to speak. You cannot only think of long term goals as You do not know what may happen to prevent or delay them, do it now!! Set short
term and long term goals, plan your work and work your plan, do not put important things off, do them now.

Please listen to the above tape. I had this on a cassette tape back in 1978 and played it so much it is hard to understand but now its on the Internet.
All kids need to listen to this tape.
You become what You think about. You can apply this info to all sorts of business and sports. Think big and do big things.
I have had some negative feed back about my telling my email lifting list to set goals. If You don't set first short term goals then long term goals You are much less likely to ever achieve your goals. You must write them down and make a plan to meet these goals and then work your plans. You get back exactly what You put out.
This goal setting is for bodybuilding, personal, business, school and powerlifting. You want to get to a place in life professionally or in a sport You must have a goal of what You want to achieve and then a plan to get there. You must then work your plan. Set short term achievable goals and then WRITE your plan as a road map to success and then go after that goal
hold it before You each day and eventually You can make it happen. You cannot get anywhere if You have no plan to get there.
Remember there are a lot of people who are more than willing to tell You that You cannot do something, so don't listen to these people. They are not motivated and don't want You to be either.
Anyone who wants to increase their physical strength and really sets their mind to do so can,
regardless of their age. There is chronological and physical age. You can't stop chronological age but you can make your physical age younger by exerting yourself into a weight program. It does not matter how fat, weak, thin, young or old you are, you can increase your strength. We know some individuals who have trained consistantly and are now on the back side of 50, some past 60 who are extremely strong. Several can still
beat 99.99% of all the twenty five year olds in the weight room or GYM. When these lifters were twenty five they were considered stong but after age 50-60 doing the same
weights they were doing twenty five years ago are now considered World Class Lifters by age class. Start young if possible and keep lifting, never slow down or allow yourself to become old. Lifters with this approach
will appear and act younger. You need to follow a proven system, watch what you eat and drink
and refuse to get old just because people think you have reached a particular age.
I have heard lifters (roid freaks) say who wants to be live to be 50 anyway? You should if you
have any common sense. A lifter who is sixty plus said that fifty does not seem so bad now.

This EMAIL goes out to many people. Most are motivated or I would not have them on my email list. Do You want to be one of the few or one of the many? If You are happy being one of many
and just want to act like You want to be BIG TIME but are not willing to work to attain a goal and my email bothers You making You feel guilty deep inside that You are not a doer, just email me back the following;
State that You are not really motivated but just a talker, not a doer and I will gladly remove You from my email list. You can the wallow in mediocrity if that is what You really want.
In the long run it would be better if You just get the guts to make what You want happen next year. Lets all win our STATE- REGIONAL- WORLD Championships or at least get better than we were
last year at the very least. You might get further than You expect if You will try. Gain or lose that weight, accept Jesus, make that money and reach whatever lifting goal You think of in your
mind. It would not be possible for You to dream of a goal if it was not possible for You to attain.
Set your 2014 goals today. The progressive realization of a worthy idea is success.
Set short term and long term goals, plan your work and work your plan.
Remember this, nobody can make you feel inferior without your consent.
Successful people do the things other people are unwilling to do to be successful. You put the work necessary
into the GYM and you will get results.
Some say Lifters are OBSESSED?
Obsessed is a word the LAZY use to describe the motivated and dedicated!
