Forced to Focus with IBE X-Force (sponsored)
First I just wanted to say thanks to LMD and IBE for letting me run a log of x-force. I received my bottle on Saturday and was excited to try it. I have tried similar products (i.e. Amp O/V2, Adrenaline, tight xtreme, etc.) and so I'm interested to see how this measures up. I actually took my first dose yesterday. I took two in the AM and didn't feel much of anything to be honest so I think I am going to try dosing it 3 caps/AM and 1-2 Caps at about 3pm.
I have a really difficult schedule this semester. I am a Pre-med student and an Exercise Science Major. I am taking a 17 credit hours of pure science, (o-chem, anatomy, orthopedic impairments, etc.) and I really need to do well. On top of that I am working 20 hours a week, volunteering at the hospital, doing 8 hours/week of undergrad research in a Microbiology lab and taking care of my 8 month old little girl while my wife teaches 1st grade during the day. I usually get up around 4:30 am and study for a little bit and then hit the gym before starting my day. I end up hitting the sack around 11pm if I'm lucky.
- Mon-Chest/tri's, Tue-Back/Bi's, Wed-Legs, Thur-Chest/tri's, Fri-Shoulders, Sat-Arms. (I also work abs/core everyday.)
- I run 4-6 miles about 4 times a week (training for a 10K)
- Current Supps: Whey Protein, Xtend, Fish/Flax oil, BA, CM, Cordygen-5, Multi, Neovar.
- Diet- I eat about 3500 cals/day (clean)
My main goal for this log is to mainly utilize the x-force to help as a study aid. I need something that will give me energy throughout the day and that won't let me crash hard. I will be dosing it pre-workout in the AM, so I am also looking for a good boost of motivation and energy in the gym.
So here I go. Just took my dose of Three caps.

Can't wait to see how you guys like it. As I said it is best for focus in my opinion. Higher dosages will completely inhibit appetite.PharmD

So I took my three caps this morning before I hit the gym at about 5am. I didn't really have a greater than normal boost during the workout, but it was decent. After finishing at the gym I went home and ate breakfast and got ready for class. I really didn't feel the extra energy until about 10min before my first class of the day. I was really focused during the lecture and could really tell that it was easier to concentrate. I think 3 caps is the sweet spot for me. I took another 2 caps aroun 3pm, went for a run and then headed back to campus to my last class and then to the library to study. I'm quite pleased with the added focus and concentration that I experienced today.
Side Note: I actually had increased appetite today.

I had a really long day today but the x-force helped me get through it. I dosed 3 caps in the AM and 2 caps in the PM just like yesterday. The focus effect was a little weaker today but it was still pretty much there throughout my morning classes. I did notice some appetite suppression in the afternoon after my second dose. I was able to get a good leg workout in yesterday while studying some anatomy terms in between sets. I've got a pretty big exam tomorrow and so I needed to study quite a bit today. I took my second dose just before going into the Chem lab for 3 hours. I had some pretty good energy. The only downside Today was that I started to crash around 9pm.

Today was a pretty good day. I'm pleased to say that I did very well on my anatomy practical exam despite it being held at 5pm. Usually I am pretty tired by then and it is hard to focus. Today I took 2 x-force in the morning and then I took 3 at 3:30pm. The energy was clean and I didn't seem to crash to bad today. Appetite was up again, which I still think is a little strange. I'm not really trying to lose weight right now so it doesn't really bother me either way. Looking forward to more good results.

I had another good day today. I actually dosed 2-1-2 today. I took my first dose pre-workout, then the second around noon and the third at about 3:30pm. I was able to get a lot of studying done this afternoon in my research lab. Good clean energy with no crash.

You taking it with or without food? Crazy you have increased appetite, I feel like I don't eat for a really long time after taking it.
09-19-2008, 11:31 PM
I'm taking it on an empty stomach. I start feeling hypoglycemic about 30-45 min after dosing and then I just get really hungry. I was starving today. I just couldn't seem to get enough food.

As busy as my schedule is, it just seems to keep getting busier. These pas two days were pretty good. Same story as the previous day. I can really tell that I have enhanced focus if I dose my x-force about 45min before I hit the books. I went to a few reviews this weekend for an O-chem exam and an functional anatomy exam that I have to take this next week. I'm hoping that I can continue to study hard through next week. Energy is clean too and I haven't been crashing at night. Appetite is still up, but again I am not complaining because I'm not on a restricted calorie diet atm.

Good stuff... X-Force was a god send for me in my english classes.... and soon my upcoming literature class. That stuff blows, so I really need something to keep me up and focused.

Yesterday was a rest day, so I took a break from the x-force to save it for the days when I really have to hit the books hard. Today was a pretty busy day and I didn't have a lot of time to study and I also a pretty big quiz in func. anatomy. I dosed my 3 x-force in the morning and I can definitely tell that taking a day off helped. I felt the same good clean energy and intense focus that I felt the first time I dosed 3 caps. I was able to really prioritize my time today and by the time I had to take my quiz i was really focused. I ended up acing it and got some other assignments finished too. Looking forward to another good day tomorrow.

I know it has been a few days since I have posted. My inernet has been down for a couple of days and I have been crazy busy with classes. The good news is that I can't say enough good things about x-force. I'm loving the fact that after a long day of classes and what not I am still able to get another 2-3 hours of studying in before I hit the sack. I've still been dosing 3 in the AM and 2 in the PM. I've only got 7 caps left which I'll split up between tomorrow and Monday. Monday I have a pretty big mid-term, so I'm gonna be studying like a mad man. Other good things to note are that my mood is significantly improved while on x-force and I am overall more positive. I like the fact that it does not make me jittery because then I feel like I can't focus and I get a little antsy and have a difficult time studying. Appetite is about the same and sometimes even increased. I will report back again after my exam on Monday with a final write-up that sums up my thoughts about x-force. The only thing I'm a little dissapointed with is that there is only 60 caps in a bottle. I know that I have been dosing it rather high but I am just not that sensitive to stims anymore.

Well I finished up my bottle of x-force today. I would like to again thank LMD and IBE for letting me try out x-force. It is, in my opinion, a very solid focus supp which has helped me get through a rough couple of weeks of school. I ended up doing well though on my exam today and a few other quizzes that were pretty important as well.
I went through the bottle kind of fast but I had to dose it pretty high to get the desired effect. I've already ordered a couple more bottles of this stuff to get me through the next month or so. This is and will be a very tough semester for me.
These are my main thoughts about x-force:
-Increased Mood and sense of well-being
-Increased ability to focus
-Long lasting clean energy
-Only 60caps in the bottle
-I needed to dose it 3-AM/2-PM to get the desired effects
Overall I really like this supp and will definitely continue to use this or other products like this to get me through the rest of my schooling. I don't think that it is a great choice as a pre-workout supp if you're looking for a big energy boost. I didn't use this as a typical fat burner and for me it actually increased my appetite, so this wouldn't be my personal choice for use on a cut. I do like it as a focus supp though and I hope to continue to get the same results out of my next few bottles.

Nice review. I have really enjoyed the XF so far, but I only use it on days that I have class. I don't use it on Thursday or Saturday, but I use it on Sunday before I train. It lasts longer this way and I don't become too attenuated to the geranium.
