  1. Day 21:

    Have been super busy with school lately -- thus the lack of updates.

    Haven't been dosing Focus XT pre-WO but have used it here and there to study. Popped a scoop last night around 9pm in order to get a couple things completed. Focus was definitely there although it killed my sleep. However, I knew this would happen -- was worth it to me to get my work done.

    Endurance is awesome in the gym with the creatine. I am not seeing any gains persay -- actually had a really disappointing chest workout today. This can probably be contributed to my less than healthy college weekend -- actually I know it can. I am going to try to calm it down. On Friday (Day 18) I worked out with my buddy I haven't worked out with in awhile. Usually we are on par as far as endurance goes but he was getting absolutely exhausted and I was fine. Once again, the endurance is amazing.

    Welp, off to study some more!

    Also, I may bump it off Focus a bit then continue and see if I notice any changes.
    Not a huge difference but standing is more functional. Also, the standing BB Military Press will hit your core more. Personally, I alternate between the two, reaping the benefits of both.

    I will give it a try for sure. Alternating sounds like a good idea.

    make sure when u do standing not to turn it into a standing chest press. or if you want to isolate your shoulders dont accadentally do push presses

  5. Day 22:

    Focus XT:

    Energy: 9/10
    I am really starting to discover how this product works -- and it took until day 21 to really get it. Although the reps told me its purpose and the expectations, I didn't seem to fully understand. I have been using it for studying purposes all this week. Before I rated it pretty low on the energy scale merely because I expected a "boost" pre-WO. However, take for instance last night, I hadn't gotten any sleep the night before and took a scoop at 10pm to study for an exam I had this morning I hadn't even started for. Usually I would pass out, but I was up reading books and doing problems until 3AM. THIS is the energy this product gives. Actually, I should say this product doesn't GIVE you extra energy, it returns you to a fully awake, fully aware state. Does this work for me pre-WO? Not necessarily. I like a rush of energy and a "boost", if you will. This product just isn't the type of stim to give me that rush.

    Focus: 10/10
    Most of the reasons listed above. When I study my mind wanders and I end up doing anything but studying. Take for instance right now, I am suppose to memorize every country, capital, and landmark in Latin America but am posting my review of Focus XT on AM. LOL You can guess what scoop of what supplement I will be taking the second I get off of here so I can get this done.

    Magnesium Creatine Chelate:

    No new news on Magnesium Creatine Chelate as I did not work out today. I should be back in the gym tomorrow. Although the bottle should last for 40 days (240/6) you will probably notice my log going a little over as I have missed 1 or 2 doses. Also, I may pick up another bottle depending on my cash flow situation to continue this since they took all my PHs away. Just kiddin' -- I would like to see what the effects of Magnesium Creatine Chelate an extra month.

  6. Day 23:

    Magnesium Creatine Chelate:

    Endurance: 10/10
    I have said it before so I will say it again -- the endurance in the gym is excellent. It seems I can go all day. Awesome.

    Strength: 8/10
    Nothing out of the ball park here but seeing some minimal gains. Going up a rep here or 5 pounds there. Any strength increase on creatine for me is a bonus -- but probably a reflection of the endurance/extra sets/etc.

    Todays workout: Back and shoulders

    Not everything....

    Hammer Lat Pulldowns: 135x8 warm up/stretch, 225x8, 255x6, 275x2f
    BB Rows: 135x8, 155x8, 165x6, 155x6
    One Arm DB Rows: 75x8, 80x6, 85x5
    BB shrugs: 225x8, 255x8x2
    Seated Military Press: 95x8, 115x7, 135x2f end of WO, shoulders dead

  7. Glad your liking the energy aspect, it should be a 10/10!

    I like the new colored format! :P

  9. I apologize to SNS and anyone following for the lack of updates. Sometimes life gets in the way I guess. :/

    I will have some updates when I get back from the gym today.

  10. Just started using Focus XT and I am enjoying the results. The stim effects are very subtle but you are more alert and have a slight mood elevation. Good stuff guys!!

    Glad you are liking it. Are you doing a review or anything? Or at least a thought summary on it? (hint, hint lol)

  12. Day 29:

    Focus XT:

    Took a break for about a week from Focus XT in hopes of getting some of the effects back. Dosed one scroop pre-WO today.

    Energy: 8/10
    I did not get much sleep last night as I was up late studying for midterms but I had really good energy in the gym. Really felt like I could keep going and no yawns.

    Focus: 10/10
    Had that good old feeling back that I loved so much upon first dosing. Went to the gym with a reason today and was focused all the way through -- once again not giving two ****s about the other 30 people in there. Had a really good back/shoulder workout. It is funny because I can feel the results taper off and I pay attention more to random **** going on in the gym then when I first take XT. Thumbs up. Going to continue to try and space out my dosages to continue the effects.

    Magnesium Creatine Chelate:

    Endurance: 10/10
    Once again, as I have said before, I am having great endurance in the gym. I am able to finish sets feeling like I could do 10 more even though I am lifting heavier weight. Loving it.

    Strength: 10/10
    This gets such a great rating from me because I really don't expect strength gains on creatine -- merely endurance. I am moving up in weight and reps across the board. You cannot beat that.


    Glad to be back in the gym. Just wish I could get through all this studying, job searching, interviewing, etc.

    Excellent. I appreciate it. Please either post a link here or pm me one.

    Thanks

  16. Day 30:

    Focus XT:

    Energy: 9/10
    Seemed to have a lot more energy today in the gym. Also, great focus once again. Taking a break from the product really does a lot as far as bringing the effects I loved so much at the beginning back.

    Focus: 10/10
    Awesome focus today. Felt like I had tunnel vision when I was deadlifting. Throwing weights off the bar and putting more on.

    Magnesium Creatine Chelate:

    Endurance: 10/10
    Same as all the other days. Amazing.

    Strength: 10/10
    Did legs today which I haven't done in about 3 weeks unfortunately. I had the same strength as I did 3 weeks ago.

    Funny story at the gym today. I was so in the zone today I must have looked it. Was taking some 25's off the BB when dead lifting to put more weight on and some kid was standing by the other side and took the other 25 off for me. Kind of caught me off guard. I looked at him funny and he said he was tryin' to help so I thanked him awkwardly, lol.

    That was me, the weight looked to heavy for you. Joke.

  18. Lookin good Kevin. Glad the focus XT is still having great effects.

    Looking forwards to your final review, how many more days do you have left?

    I probably have about 5 scoops of Focus XT left. As far as the creatine goes, I will probably go a little over 40 days due to a couple missed doses. Also, I think I am going to order another bottle of the Magnesium Creatine Chelate and continue the log, as it is recommended to use it longer than 4 weeks correct?

    Was going to run something stronger than creatine but with all this hoopla and the great results I am getting why not right?

    I think that is enough final review right there if I am going to buy more. J/K

    Anything else, possibly from SNS, you would recommend stacking with it for optimal results (besides Focus XT of course)?

    well i would recommend pretty much everything since we make a lot of simple/staple supps.

    cant go wrong with reduce xt for some nice fat loss effect.

    Have you ever tried BA?

    Also if you are thinking about using PH/DS in the future, pick up a couple bottles now

    It really depends on your goals. Beta Alanine caps make a great addition with it, or Reduce XT for lean muscle and leaning out.

    Probably a good idea. SNS did my PCT well after H-drol.

  25. Day 34:

    Focus XT:

    Pretty much used all my Focus XT I had left pulling an all-nighter and studying for my midterms. I am exhausted. I will post a final review here very soon (after I get some sleep).

    Magnesium Creatine Chelate:

    Endurance: 10/10
    It is getting kind of ridiculous the amount of workouts I can do in the gym without tiring. I HAVE to tell myself to stop now or I will definitely overtrain. I feel like I can just keep going.

    Strength: 7/10
    Nothing spectacular as far as gains go this week.
