    FOCUS Baby!


    AndroFactory Focus Sponsored Log

    Time for Kenpo to let AndroFactory Focus me! Thanks to the reps at AF for the opportunity to run their product called FOCUS.

    From reading the background literature, FOCUS can promote:
    Focus, Drive, Energy, Motivation, anti-stress and electrochemical / neurological growth enhancement. Here is the write up on it:

    http://www.androfactoryblog.com/focus-the-writeup/

    FOCUS is pretty mild, for my run I'm going to see if I can bulk a little (tiny bit!) and plan to run it:

    AF FOCUS: 1/1/2/2 Dosed AM

    Supporting supplements:
    PWO: As needed, Finaflex Creatrona, iForce Compete, iForce Joint Help, Modern BCAA, Glucosamine, Multivitamin and Fish Oil.

    Post Cycle Therapy:
    Purus Recycle: 4/4/4/4

    As of now here are my stats..

    Height 5'6". Weight 160 lbs

    Measurements Starting
    Arms: 14
    Legs: 23
    Chest: 38
    Shoulders: 46
    Calves: 13
    Waist: 33

    Max Lifts Starting (1RM off cycle)
    Machine Bench: 235 lbs
    Machine Squat: 235
    BB Deadlift: 325
    Machine Shoulder Press: 125

    Target Macros: 200 /250 /65 g p/c/f 800+1000+585 about 2500 cals

    Workouts:
    All my workouts are on a daily basis in my garage gym. They are generally 1 to 1.5 hours long and utilize combinations of an Ironmaster machine and free-weights:

    I train with a HR monitor to time when my HR returns to a point that I can begin the next set. I'm a nerd engineer, what can I say! Really switching up my routine here. Will tweak it as I go:

    Monday: Shoulders
    Tuesday: Upper Chest/Lats
    Wednesday: Boxer Cardio
    Thursday: Back/Biceps
    Friday: Legs
    Saturday: Chest
    Sunday: Upper Back/Triceps

    Notes
    1) This is my third cycle and I'm no expert. If there is anything missing or if you have recommendations please feel free to post.
    2) Feel free to post anything you'd like to motivate or make me do my best.
    3) If my weights for any lift seem "off" it might be due to incorrect form. Don't flame me (PM me instead) as I'm still learning. Thanks.

    Thank you to AndroFactory and it's reps for allowing me the opportunity to log FOCUS for six weeks.

    For my run I wanted to see if I could bulk a little and dosed it 1/2/2/2/2/2. Didn't notice any effect from 1 cap but moving to 2 caps daily I definitely felt the improved workouts, strength increases and energy levels.

    With this 6.5 week bulk cycle I added about 6 lbs and experienced a nice amount of leaning out all while noticing an improved mental and mood state. For example, weeks ago I was hosting my company's event. I maintained mental focus even though my sleep was constantly poor. I was energetic and in a good mood the entire week of 16 hour days.

    This compound has lived up to the good mood and mental improvement claim.

    After two bottles of use here are my thoughts:

    - A little aggression during the first few days but then enhanced energy and mood.
    - Improved workout attitude and strength increases (set several new PRs).
    - Minor sides and no lethargy.
    - need two bottles of Focus to really see results.

    Measurements Starting/Ending:
    Arms: 14/14
    Legs: 23/23
    Chest: 38/39
    Shoulders: 46/47
    Calves: 13/14
    Waist: 33/34

    Max Lifts Starting/Ending:
    Machine Bench: 235/255
    Machine Squat: 235/255
    BB Deadlift: 325/345
    Machine Shoulder Press: 125/125

    So I added about an inch to my chest, shoulders, calves and waist. Surprising to say the least.

    I would definitely run AndroFactory Focus again. Can't wait to try their other PHs!

    Good lifting to you all!!

    Thanks and welcome Hyde, RJ, GodStrength and Pyro. It's good to have you guys in my log. Thanks GodStrength for the kind words about my home gym. It took years of saving and building to make my Man Cave. I'm extremely fortunate to have this. If anyone lives near Mentor, Ohio (East of Cleveland), look me up for a workout session.

    The fun begins. Took 1 cap Focus last night and 1 this morning. These are gel caps and easy to swallow.

    Took the incline bench on a little up/down spin:

    Smith Machine Incline Bench Press 234.33
    Set 1 : 185x8 1 notch up
    Set 2 : 165x8 2 notches up
    Set 3 : 165x7
    Set 4 : 145x7
    Set 5 : 125x7 up to 45 degrees here
    Set 6 : 145x6 down 1 notch
    Set 7 : 165x5 down 2 notches
    Set 8 : 185x5
    Set 9 : 185x7 1 notch above flat here
    |
    Chin Up 240
    Set 1 : 160x15
    Set 2 : 160x13
    |
    Notes
    I'm loving this incline bench routine and the chest is responding finally!

    Thanks for following and good lifting all.

    Thanks for joining in and the kind words about my gym. I'm kind of tough on cleanliness and insist on a clean and organized gym. I have a teenage football playing stepson that uses it as well. He's 6'2" and 240 lbs at 16.

    Have you considered upping your calories some? I see the way you kill it, is 2500 enough for you on a bulk?

    This is a tough one to answer. My calculated Tdee is about 2500 calories. The problem is I have a desk job so my activity is low for the day (after the initial morning workout). I find I put weight on the belly quickly if I up calories too much higher. I know this is needed for a bulk but at my age it's hard to lose. Advice?

    Everyone is different. I go through periods during the summer, when I'm doing yard work all weekend, that I cut at 35-3700/day. But that's clean eating. If I stayed at 2500 clean, and riding in a car the majority of the day for my job (what I do), then I'd probably cut. And that's with cheating most weekends.

    I dunno, maybe something to play around with.

    Where do you do the machine squat at? At a gym, or do you have something at your place?

    It's hard to be humble on the internet. Thanks brother. About Focus, I promised myself that I would wait a full week before commenting. Wanted to be sure it's in my system. Please stay tuned!

    Day 5 Weight 162.8 +2.8 lbs

    Just finished my workout and I feel fantastic but spent. This was a strength test day for my bench.

    PWO: Acute FX and Uncut. Intra: BCAA and Compete. I felt like I smoked the chest! I'm taking RJ's advice and upping cals to 2750.

    Holy volume! Looks like a killer pump and workout! I need to work harder on my chest like that...

    RE: Calories
    Worst case you can always up cardio, but you're more likely to take advantage of the gains with the added calories.
