  1. Trying To Get Some Work Done with Focus XT (Sponsored)


    Whats up everyone,

    This is my first sponsored log...big thanks to the SNS team for letting me log
    Focus XT. I usually just stick with what is tried and true for me...so this is a
    great opportunity to try something new.

    Current Stats:
    5'10"
    219lbs
    Around 14%

    Training;
    4x a week...Powerlifting/Compound for size

    I recently just cut down a bit from 228ish...sort of just for something new
    since I had been bulking for so long. I did get leaner, but don't care too much and
    wish I would have stayed up in weight. I'm more into the strongman body style
    than the bodybuilder style, so bf isn't too much of a concern to me. My general
    gauge to stay happy is if my chest is out further than my stomach, I'm happy haha.
    Not sure what it is but I typically stay pretty lean anyway because I only buy
    clean foods, and I've never been into junk/desserts. I keep my cals around 4000-4500
    right now, protein at around 350, and don't count carbs.

    Current Supplements:
    Kre Alkalyn
    Multi
    Fish oil
    ON Whey
    SNS Reduce XT - Just finished PCT and still wanna keep my cort. levels good...especially while reviewing a stim

    Previous stims:
    Caffeine
    Blue Up w/ stim
    MAN Swagger
    A few different PreWO's

    Goals with Focus XT:
    See how it affects my work at school, work, and training

    What I will talk about throughout this log:
    General feeling
    Performance at work, school, and the gym
    Taste
    Duration of effects
    Tolerance throughout the weeks
    Positive/Negative sides

    Towards the end of the log, when I have a good understanding of how Focus XT affects
    me, I will address the claims on a scale of 1-10 so everyone can kind of get a
    feeling for it.

    What can it do for you?
    -Improved Mental Focus
    -Mental Alertness and Concentration
    -Mental Clarity
    -Anti-Stress Properties
    -Maximizing Energy Levels
    -Optimal Mental Performance
    -Concentration
    -Memory
    -Improved Endurance
    -Pre-Athletic Activity Energy and Focus
    -Increased Fat Burning During Exercise
    -Improved Mind-Muscle Connection
    -Combating Overtraining
    -Pre-Workout Energy and Focus

    Post up any suggestions or questions throughout.

    Just got my package and wanted to start off my log while I had a little time. I'm gonna use FXT pre wo today so I'll update in a bit.

    Pmag run at 100mgs for 4 weeks, just got done PCT and need a good pre wo to keep my workouts intense

  8. Ok so I took one scoop pre wo today for some heavy deads and squats...WOW

    I did not want to stop lifting at all. This stuff is awesome for pwo. Some pwo's make me sick to my stomach...not the case at all with Focus XT. The focus factor was definitely insane, it was a totally different feeling. Not like I was all stimmed out, just concentrated. It really made my workout great. The feeling continued for quite some time after the workout...just felt in a great mood which was a result of FXT and having an awesome workout.

    Also, I wanted to comment on the taste. I don't think it is possible for this stuff to taste any better. It is by far the best tasting supplement I've ever used. I chose the pink lemonade flavor...ended up sipping on it like it was a regular glass of lemonade. Even though I don't really care what stuff taste like, when it actually taste good it makes it a million times better.

    Really loving it after my first day

    It is an awesome product, not just for focus when you need it for studying, driving for miles, night jobs, etc. IT is also a great pre workout

  13. So I took a scoop this morning before breakfast...got some good food in me...then started my day. I had to do a lot of running around as two clients had be running all over the place. I had to build a computer for one client, which went so easy. I was just in like a tunnel...me and the computer. It isn't hard to begin with but I was just so concentrated on the task that it was done before I even thought about it. Made some extra money too I took the FXT at around 9ish and I am still feeling the effects. It seems to last a while and I don't crash at all which is nice. I think it is because it doesn't get me all jittery so you slowly feel it and then it slowly goes away.

    Today was supposed to be an off day but I'm gonna do max effort bench today because I have the energy and got done all of my work early.

    Dude its much better than other preworkouts I've tried. It isn't jittery energy. It actually helps you like concentrate on what you are doing instead of just giving you the energy to blast through. I had some bad experiences with preworkouts, but this is awesome. Also, it makes you feel awesome after the workout. You should definitely pick some up and try it out...guaranteed you will like it.

    I have yet to workout on it other than 30 minutes of cardio... but I agree afterward I felt great...

    Ah, Pmag...that go well for ya?
    Awesome to see you've torn into this already...and going well, I see!

    Yea pmag is my favorite always good gains that are easy to maintain.
    My next test with FXT is school. I happened to get my package right after finals week so I didn't get to test it out as far as school work. I start up again this Monday so I'll be able to put it to the test. This is what I'm most excited for actually. I already know it will, but I'm really hoping the FXT can take my school work to the next level.

  18. Kind of a weird question but maybe someone has had a similar experience. This does not happen with FXT, but with other preworkouts I have tried I notice that when I drink it...the back outer parts of my tongue get this weird bitter taste on them. It is really strange and gross. Like I said, I don't get it with FXT, but curious if anyone has ever had this happen. Maybe from a certain ingredient?

  19. Looks like you've found good use for it so far, inside and out of the gym. I us it for my cardio sessions and school as well.

    Might be creatine or aminos from the other preworkouts giving you that bitter taste on the back of your tongue?
    Did they contain any of those two ingredients?

    Yea I know they all contained creatine...maybe that is the reason. I always dose creatine in pill form so that could be it. I'm gonna compare the ingredients of a few in-depth one day when I have spare time. It's not the worst thing in the world, but it definitely prevents me from just chugging. Like even when you arent breathing out of your nose to avoid the taste, its still overwhelming bitter haha. Kinda weird but who knows.

  23. Today is probably gonna be the biggest test for FXT. I start new classes today, so I gotta run and get new books, then go the opposite direction to drop my brother off somewhere, then run to work with some random IT guy, then get my workout in, then go to class. Should be a crazy day. I just dosed FXT so I will update at the end of my day to see how it goes.

    Awesome! Looking forward to the feedback. I just got home from the gym and still feel like I have gas in the tank. Although the painful pumps from Agmatinemade me stop

  25. Alright so I have a second to update so far...did all my running around and got some work done. By the time I got to my workout, I still had enough energy to get through it but I much prefer dosing the FXT a few minutes before my workout instead of a few hours before. The energy was still there but that crazy focus feeling wasn't. I was expecting this because the energy from this stuff last a longg time, but the focus peak sizzles out after about two-three hours for me. I also started a new training program which had me go light to start, so I made it through pretty easy. Hoping it isn't a waste of time.

    Anyone have any experience with the stronglifts 5x5? I'm not trying to do this based on the before and after pics hahaha...just wanted a new 5x5 to try and someone linked to this in another thread. It is between stronglifts and wendlers 5/3/1. I was thinking maybe both, with 5/3/1 being after.

    I am really glad you are enjoying Focus XT. It really does have a very wide variety of uses and is an excellent option for those that want more concentration in the gym, and dont like the stimmed out jittery feeling.

    Thanks man...I would never want to mask the taste its so good ahahaa

  30. Just wanted to update on the tolerance. I haven't dosed the FXT every single day since the start, but I have been using it fairly often. I do not seem to be building a tolerance to it really. Everytime I take it, basically the same feeling, same durations etc. That is nice but I will still take a day or two off every now and then.

    I was also thinking about trying either an extra serving, or adding 200mg of caffeine with it. My comfort zone with caffeine is 400, so I will see how this goes probably tomorrow pre-wo...should be fun.
