Like Ripper said I'm no stim junkie. I think the pharmaceutical grade caffeine and I simply didn't agree. Most people who use it get great energy but don't have the energy OD feeling I did.

Thanks guys, now I have even more to think about. I appreciate the responses. I have used MP Assault and it did not make me feel good. Massive growth looks like a pretty mild product, actually to me looks very similar to quake or novem.

I used k-otic a few times and it is a good product. I have not used it since it first came out and the flavor really messed up my stomach. I am definitely a stim junkie but I think that needs to change. I do not think being all jacked up on caffeine is helping my lifts. And razor 8 blast powder is an awesome product for crazy energy, but it really makes me crash hard.

I have some more thinking to do about a plan.

This J, and it's not a stupid idea.

I used to listen to music and have it loud, and then one day I forgot to turn the boom box on, and I just zoned into the sound of the fan blowing.

The quiet, and focus I get from being calmer in no way limits my work energy. I think it helps it. The couple of times I've lifted right after taking a cellucor tab have not been a good experience for me. I find I like to have the calm that not being all buzzed provides.

I have been Using Novem for a month or so. will be finishing the tub soon. I take 3 scoops which is 1.5 servings and its not anything crazy about what it does. I am also feeling that when I concentrate just before a lift and zone out anything else , i lift better.
I play the music but when it comes down to it, I zone out for my best lifts. WHen i try to get all pumped and into it i tend to lose my mind muscle connection and I strain to lift something that should not feel so heavy. then all of a sudden i realize whats going on and boom the weight goes up.

however, NOvem is pretty good stuff with out being to potent.

Jeremy...found this product:

Enyotics Focus Fast - Improve Working Memory & Enhance Attention!

30 days for $24.99. Not sure how it stacks up. I would probably trust Biotest more.

Thanks steve, biotest is a little cheaper and free shipping. This product seems to be focused more on focus at work, and has a lot of ingredients. Whereas the biotest product is "designed" for working out and only has a few ingredients.

I will check this out further later, thanks for the heads up

Don't be sorry, I appreciate you looking out for me, and I have been looking for other options. Other than biotest.

Found another product that is very similar to Power Drive called focus XT and it is only 15 dollars a container. Does anyone know anything about this company? Serious Nutrition Solutions
