My upper two abs are becoming more noticeable, and although I am trying to maintain weight while losing bodyfat (recomp style diet) I was 2 pounds lighter last night on the scale! Not a big deal to me, some of it may be just diet related and water loss, but there is definitely some fat loss going on here.
I am finally feeling more focused as well. The stim break is becoming easier now that the benefits of Focus are showing! My mood is more positive and upbeat and my willingness to accomplish daily work tasks is increasing. Getting through a 12 hour shift at work with only 5-6 hours of sleep is almost a breeze now. I feel more awake in the morning and well rested and my mid afternoon lethargy does not come on quite as strong.
-Noticeable increase in metabolism/ease of digestion
-Vascularity in the shoulders
-Sweating bullets (mainly at night)
-Increase in confidence

Lol...ok you guys asked for it
Still keeping the Focus at 1 cap and Lean-Cut at 2 caps, here is what I've noticed...
Increased sense of well being and a slight stimulant feeling. The stim feeling is noticeable for about an hour, but still even after a couple hours if I actually stop to observe, I find myself clenching my jaw and my eyes are more open, which is how I get on stimulants lol.
I am more social, and I notice in certain situations at work I am more inclined to speak out and not worry about hurting anyone's feelings over certain issues.
I started the Lean-Cut at just around 9% body fat and I am currently sitting at 8%. Most of my fat loss seems to be coming from my upper abdominal area. I am hoping by the time I finish the second bottle I will tighten up around my lower back a bit more too.
Still drenching pillows in sweat every night too lol.
Jake if you haven't done so already I highly recommend jumping to 2 caps.
Hell...if I can handle it I may even close this cycle out at 3 caps. Also considering grabbing another bottle of Focus to run at 2 caps a day.

My weight has gone down only a could pounds but the change in body fat with the only slight decrease in weight suggests there is some strong recomp effect going on here.
Have you been keeping track of your body fat percentage? If not you should start. Just because you're not losing weight doesn't mean you aren't burning fat!

yeah I need to track it. what are you using to do so? I can tell that I have lost some fat though and I am only about 1-2 lbs lighter. I think it is finally kicking in! Should I continue with 2 pills and stop at 4 weeks or go back to 1 and go for 5 weeks. Not sure if since it is in my system it will still work better now? If I did decide to buy another bottle are there any discounts right now?

love hearing about a recomp affect and that most of the fat is coming from the midsection, it's always the toughest area to burn fat from

So it looks like leancut is finally kicking in for me! been doing 2 pills since week three and have 4 more days left of week 4. That coupon code worked so I just ordered another bottle! Definitely starting to lose weight... was 165.8 this morning! (started all this at about 170-172). And I am starting to break out more on my face (unfortunate but letting me know it is working). Upper stomach is losing fat and starting to go to lower but very slowly. I think I might have to start eating at maintenance to see if I can keep burning fat and maybe gain muscle

All of a sudden week 3-4 you really start noticing that recomp effect.
If you get that other bottle, it'll continue to the end is my bet.
I am considering running mine with lean xtreme (always works well for me) and dcp since I am getting off a 4 month bulk. Maybe toss vanillean in there just cuz I have it too. Hitting fat loss from all angles.... and who knows maybe some ECA haha. Depends on how bold I want to get.

I'm starting not to sweat as much now at night, so we'll keep an eye on that now that I'm into my second bottle of Lean-Cut and see if anything changes. I'm assuming my body is just becoming used to the higher body temps.
I had a very evident observation from my Focus dose today, and I made sure to watch again today to make sure it was real.
I popped one gel cap of Focus, then half an hour later I was sitting down to drink a coffee, and noticed I had been bouncing my knees for the past few minutes and basically acting the way I would from taking a preworkout, and this was before my coffee lol.
I tried it again today for the gym and boom, same thing! I think the stimulant effects are starting to show more and more now.
My workout routine is a 4 day split that looks like this:
Flat bench 5x5 (only heavy on 5th set, to failure)
Incline DB or bar press 4x8-10
Hammer strength press, with stops set for a deep stretch 2x20, rest pause a couple times after failure
Cable cross or incline flyes 2x20
Seated dumbell extensions 4x10
Body weight dips til failure
Close grip tricep press downs 4x12
Reverse grip press downs 2 sets of drop sets
Bent over barbell rows 4x8
Wide grip pullups 2xfailure
Neutral grip pullups 2xfailure
Seated reverse grip pulldowns 3x12
Seated cable rows 2x20-30
Cable preacher curls 4x8
Incline DB curls 3x12
Rack run with hammer curls, 2 sets dropping for 5 progressions, til failure every time
Leg press 5x5
Leg extensions 3x12
Leg curls 3x8
Seated military press 5x12, 10, 8, 6, 6
Or clean and press 4x10
Rear delt machine 4x8
Standing side laterals 4x12-16
Standing neutral grip raises (DB's pressed together) 2x20 (do drop sets after 20th rep)
Then if I'm still standing I will get on the shoulder press machine and knock out a set of 30 reps
I am using body fat calipers to determine my %, I saw that question asked earlier....

Hey Flex any update?
I started mine on Saturday. One thing I was a lil concerned with, is the caps look like they are home-made (cap m quick maybe?) and half filled. A bit not what I am used to. So a bit skeptical off the bat. However will roll on.
So far my stack is simple, 2 caps lean-cut morning, and 6 caps (will move to 9) of dcp per day. Caffeine 2-3x a day, running intermittent fasting + low carb (ive been keto for 2yrs now with great success). So the biggest adjustments here will be calories, the addition of lean-cut and dcp, having used androlean v2 prior with dcp, I know this combo worked before.
As mentioned I may add some ephedrine to my caffeine eventually, and I have vanillean to also help burn. Think I am going to hold off on cortisol control (lean xtreme or erase) til PCT.
