    Loosing focus


    I have gotten to a point where I am loosing focus in the gym. My form has gotten sloppy and the workouts seem flat. I know things in my personal life are probably the biggest contributing factor. Trying to sort out all the bull***t with my wife(we are separated) is really taking a toll.

    What I am curious about is if you guys would recommend taking some time off or continue to plow thru and hope for the best? Any thoughts on supps that might help me get out of this funk would be appreciated. I have tried changing my routine, sets, reps...you name it. Normally, I take a few days off every 6 to 8 weeks to recharge the batteries. Don't know if it would help or hurt at this point. Any Thoughts.

    Ya i do sorta the same thing, especially w/ school work. If Im studying for a test or got something im stressing, Ill go workout earlier that day. Seems to help my mood.

    i generally also go in the morning... it puts you in a little bit of a better mood for the rest of the day.... plus if you wait til the end of the day, you have had all the "BS" on your mind all day and cant concentrate, if you did it in the morning your brain would be clear of "BS"

    Lol one of the reasons I started going to the gym. The last few girlfriends I've had started off dating someone else. Of course the dude gets sour and wants to fight me. Whatever, no worries heh

    Just giving yourself a break from lifting so that you can focus on other things could be good and beneficial for you at this point. Some kind of mood enhancer and energy booster may really help you out during this time. I like to use X-Force. When I'm feeling tired and down popping a couple of caps helps perk me up a little. It is subtle, but very noticeable. I also dose this product pre workout because of the stamina and focus it provides while I'm lifting.

    take a full week to 2 weeks off, stay active as possible but dont intentionally do a hardcore lifting session from the sounds of it ur CNS is burnt out, your burnt out, and really sounds like an injury is likely if u keep this up.

    As far as pre-workout supps to help with intensity, personally if i have a problem with an aspect of my life i generally blow it out of proportion then get angry then lift and using lifts to get my aggression out, this doesnt help the problem but helps with intensity in the weight room.
    OTC supps- Any NO (idealy somethign like nano vapor that stuff gets me wired), really thats about it.

    Honestly if your feeling depressed though take the time off and get your head straight first, if you where angry i would tell u to keep lifting but thats not the case.

    Hey man goodluck with everything sorry to hear the bad news,
