best preworkout mental focus wise

  1. Definitely Focus XT is very good.

    I really enjoyed the focus I got from Purus Labs Condense, it really surprised me how focused I was in the gym.

    My vote over all would be, Volatile (low-medium stim pre workout, great pumps, and great product) mixed with Focus XT. you will get best of both worlds. Caffeine in moderate amounts also help with focus.

  2. Since there seems to be a few Focus XT experts in here, I was wondering if someone could answer a question I have with regard to its use. Most recommend that it be taken on an empty stomach. However, wouldn't that make the vinpocetine in it worthless since its absorption is very low on an empty stomach? If Focus XT is taken with food, then wouldn't that reduce the benefits of L-Tyrosine since it would be competing against other amino acids in your meal? I'm sure there's probably something I'm overlooking (or not familliar with), so any information would be appreciated.

  3. since this just got revived, thank everyone for the recommendations on focus xt im loving it! and to the post above, ive been taking it about 15-20 minutes after my preworkout meal (breakfast) right before i head to the gym. its been working for me

  4. For those who havent tried Metabolic Bioshock yet, its not Craze like in focus but the energy is super clean and dialed in. Just finished my first tub and am absolutely going back for a second. All of those close to me Ive recommended it to have been pleased as well, which is rare with pres, people often have different experiences with them, feel they dont live up to the hype, etc.

  5. Things that got me "locked in" the most during my workouts were the late Enhanced and SpeedX3. Crazzzzzy laser focus with both of those.

    I take it with food as its the alcar,choline and hup a that I really use it for.

    Just out of curiosity, would taking it with something like almond milk allow you to get the benefits of each ingredient since it provides calories and fat (to help with absorbing the vinpocetine) but very little protein (which reduces the potential for the L-tyrosine competing against other amino acids)?

  9. Focus xt. Focus without feeling stimmed out

  10. +1 to Enhanced, and Prodigy.

  11. Focus XT has always been my favorite. Nice energy of course from the 200mg of caffeine, but the acute (and more importantly, prolonged) effects on focus and mind-muscle connection are superb.

    That option is viable for sure dose with b6 (p5p) or folic acid to enhance absorption.

    I know there are multiple amino acid transporters but I am not versed enough on them to tell whether or not there is competition.

    Curious though, if consuming something as a whole protein (i.e. a meal then consuming FXT) would impact L-Tyrosine absorption considering that is already in amino form whereas the protein would have to be cleaved before releasing amino acids into the blood stream and competing for absorption.

    I.e. L-tyrosine would already be absorbed before the protein from the meal impacted absorption; or is my guess off base?

    You make a very good point. Maybe that's the key to taking it such that all the ingrediants are utilized. As you mentioned, if it's taken immediately after a meal then that might be too soon to affect l-tyosine absorption but would also provide food to optimize vinpocetine absorption. That sounds like a good plan to me but my knowledge on the matter is insufficient to say whether that would really work or not.

  25. For Focus, Gameday or Volatile. I am not recommending Gameday just because I am a rep either, I was hooked on it long before. These 2 are definitely worth trying.
    For non-stim, I would just use bulk Citrulline, creatine, and agmatine. Possibly throw in some Betaine.
