    Pre-workout Product


    I'm looking for a pre-workout that's heavy on focus and light on stims. Any suggestions? I hate the wired feeling I get with most stims and I hate the all to often crash that ensues.

    I'm currently using PNI Prodigy. It's OK but I have to take 2-3 scoops to notice anything. I've heard that Focus XT and Craze are heavy on the stims.

    My personal suggestion from experience would be jacked micro at two scoops. For me the focus is crazy, no cracked out feeling, very smooth is what I mean.
    I've dosed at 1 scoop, 1.5 scoops, all with solid results, but 2 two is my sweet spot. I've used prodigy, condense, mm, c4, and some others. So far this is my fav for focus.

    Oh yes, I tried one serving sample of Enhanced. Focus was pretty good but that's all I really noticed. Its all I had so I really can't comment much on it as I am pretty stim tolerant. The reviews on it are great thus far.

    JP8 is hands down the best pre-workout product I've ever tried. If you handle the taste of desiccated puke.

    I had a similar experience with prodigy. My favs are micro and condense at the moment. Caffeine free xt provides some solid focus actually as well.

    Focus XT is 200mg of caffeine per scoop. It is definitely not stimulant heavy.

    I will also say that if you are using that much Prodigy,its probably time for a stim break.So in that case,I would recommend stim-free Focus XT.

    I'd consider Jack3d micro a good focus/light stim product. The energy is definitely there, but it's smooth and not overbearing. Focus XT or Enhanced (low dosed) could give you what you're looking for as well. Another option would be using ALCAR with a low stim product; I often add 1g-2g for increased focus.

    I'm not sure if you've tried Versa-1, but combining it with any amount of stims gives me great focus/mental clarity.

    Indeed.

    I wont use over .5 scoop, partly because I don't want more than 3 grams creatine as well.

    I just dislike creatine in a prop blend. I like to know how much I'm getting.

    Focus XT would be a great choice. Or just plain focus without caffeine

    I'm currently using Versa-1. I can't say that its doing much for me. I may try Focus XT. I like SNS, good products at down to earth prices. I'm not a heavy stim user. Occasionally on workout days.

    V-1 usually kicks in around week 3. For me, this is when I started to get the full effects from it.

    I get great focus off the V-1 from the get go but I like it with at least 100mg caffeine to get me going. Energy will last all day though with even that small amount.

    I'm on week 5. I did seem to notice a little extra focus the first week (maybe placebo) but not much since.

    Are you using it with stimulants at all? I can send you a couple Jack3d micro samples (Blue Razz) if you're interested. The combo gives me solid focus and isn't heavy on stims.

    I've used Hemavol in the past. I'm currently trying Max Pump. It's OK but I think I like Hemavol a little better as far as the pump is concerned. It's difficult to quantify my results. For me the pump comes and goes. I think carbs and proper hydration are a big factor.

    focus XT was nice too, got a sample a while back and it was nice.

    Its hard to get high focus...like real focus from CNS, without being a decent amount of stimulant. Even the best of the best compounds for focus outside of supplements will give stimulation.

    I would try 1 scoop of Enhanced, and maybe add in 1-2g of ALCAR

    Indeed. The sensation of "focus" is ultimately derived from the reticular activating system, which stimulants can influence.

    With Stims: Enhanced, Focus XT, Craze
    Without Stims: Caffeine Free Focus XT, Ultima

    The above is my own opinion and does not reflect the opinion of PES
