    Its Time to Buckle down and get FOCUSED with FOCUS XT, Big test May 1st


    I really want to thank the guys at SNS for the donation . Here is the scoop, In the airforce to make rank ( e-5 and above) You test, its called WAPS testing, Weighted Airmen Promotion System. It basically Pits you up against your peers In a test in 2 areas, SKT ( job knowledge) and PFE ( Basic military and Airforce knowledge) Each year the AF determines its manning needs and sets a cutoff of how many e-5s they want. Everyone who scores above certain cut off is in those who dont better luck next yr. There are many other factors int eh WAPS system, But the 2 big deal are the tests. Those are May 1st for me, its a big deal in the fact that It will bring me a large increase in Money monthly, that coupled with the fact I enlisted 5-7 yrs after my typical peers did means Im behind in rank so to speak, Most guys that outrank me are younger then me and those who are my age are really up in rank.


    The reason for Focus XT is ive been studying for several months. There is a **** ton of info to study, its not a basic book to study I have 5 volumes of Job knowledge books to study and 1 gone with the wind novel of PFE to study, it get very very very very very dry and boring. I have a computer program called PFE gold that gives me the major points of the book so I can use that to study. But after 30 min My mind wanders, I get bored and I really want to just come back and surf bb.com lol. This is where Focus XT comes into play.......... So what is FOCUS XT????

    This isnt a typical "log" so to speak, as i wont be using it for workouts. ill be using at 0300 in the morning when im working 3rd shift studying My books

    Im blessed with good supervision that allow me to study a few hrs a night in my work area. Working 3rd shift is tough enough but studying too.

    So im gonna exercise and train My brain.

    Log my thoughts, taste, mixing, feelings and the ability to focus ont eh task at hand and ignore outside distractions



    Stay tuned......................... ............

    Ok so I took the first dose at 12 midnight. My initial dosings I like to juudge mixing, taste, and if anything settles or not


    Mixing 10-10 this stuff u could have stired up with a spoon, it blended so nicely no settlement even after letting it sit for a few minutes. The color was light pink just like pink lemonade ( duh)

    Taste 11-10 haha This is prob the first or second time ive ever given something a perfect score in the taste department. With the given ingredients I was waiting on a chemical taste or a nasty after taste. But I **** you night when I say this tasted like Country time Pink lemonade. Add some Ice to this and i want to chill on my deck by the pool with it


    Effects I cant say much just yet it was only one serving. I will say I reviewed 406 review notes and answered 225 questions from the hrs of 0100-0245 Which was very good for me seeing as the section i reviewd Ive been putting off because I seem to always skip around it due to the length of the after questions.

    Im drinking another dose now before I study in the evening. It recomends 2 doses a day split over 8 hrs which is what ill begin to follow over ht next 2 weeks

    right now there is a practice final exam of 100 questions I try to take this exam every 3rd day ( its not the same questions over and over) right now im at 67% ( i started at 51% ) My goal is to achieve a minimum of 80% of the pracitce final to even be comfortable with testing

    Appreciate seeing you review this.

    Many people find that they dont need two servings per day. You can pretty much use it as needed.

    Thank you


    Its Crunch time now. less then a week away. Im starting to pysch myself out a bit. Ive never taken a test that actually really means anything. I mean all thru college i did fine on test and if i jacked up I could rebound. None of those tests meant a pay increase, and none of those tests only come one time a yr. SO my nerves are kickin in. Im a good tester and all but ugh

    I find taking 1.5 scoops really really does the trick for me. I dunno if its weight dependent. But I think that is my sweet spot. I love the plifting feeling I get mentally right about 20 minutes after I start drinking it

    I think its honestly more individual tolerance dependant rather than weight dependant.

    Glad you are enjoying it. Alot of people have varying feelings about using it pre-workout, but it works well for me because I need more of the focused motivated feeling before I go train rather than just an all out energy buzz.

    You can do it either way honestly. I probably sip on mine for less than 5 minutes. Some people chug theirs.

    In the mornings, I'll chug it because I want to get it down 15 minutes before I eat breakfast and I'm in a hurry.

    Other times, I'll drink it over a 5-10 minute period while I'm getting ready for whatever task I'm about to tackle.

    I drink mine over a period of about 10 minutes,

    after that Id say within 10-15 min after first sip I begin to feel minor effects. within 20 mins of completion im full blown.

    2 days left. My shop gave me monday off to study and what not so since yesterday for 6 hrs a day its been

    45 min study 15 min break
    45 min study 15 min break

    Im averaging about mid 80's on my practice tests now.

    Im mentally just about had it with studying lol. Ill be glad when it is done. I just finished my frist session this morning. without focus xt and i found myself switching back and forth to espn.com and reading lol

    so Im mixing up a serving right now

    I chug mine first thing in the AM.

    I did try taking it during a long-azz meeting with management (over 2.5 hours - I can't fall asleep or drift off....) over 30 mins or so.
    (I added piracetam to Focus for that meeting - good combo!!!)

    Not sure I really notice a difference, honestly. But try both and see what you think.

    thank you thank you

    all those months studying and Focuz XT getting me thru the long nights im sure paid off.

    i woulda never been able to study for 4 hrs at a clip like i was

    its very rare to make it your first time competing against others who have tested 2-3 even 4 times

    and 2 be number 3 out of the whole career field was great
