This is a full QSN Supplements Focus Q Pre Workout review. This is a nice looking product with good packaging and a fair price.
We are a little concerned at the small ingredients profile though, to see if it’s something that’s going to deliver an awesome pre workout experience or just be an overpriced flop.
The product feels great and feels premium. But it’s what is inside that counts.
QSN Supplements Focus Q Pre Workout Ingredients
This is a very basic set of ingredients for a pre workout. And also has some weird doses of certain ingredients. We are all for products keeping it simple, like our current number #1 pre workout, but this just doesn’t add up.
You will also most like experience some heavy side effects from the doses of certain ingredients in this product.
Used as a stimulant in pre workouts, and over long periods of supplementation can improve athletic performance.
However there are very annoying tingling and itching side effects from this ingredient. It can get pretty bothersome and distracting when you are lifting weights so isn’t always the best.
Alpha Keto Glutarate
This helps raise the amount of nitric oxide production in blood vessels, in a similar way to L-arginine.
This means you will get some good muscle pumps from a dose of 2000mg-3000mg. This ingredient is slightly under dosed, meaning you’ll need to be double scooping with Focus Q to get the full benefit.
A small dose of creatine can aid with topping up levels if you are already supplementing it.
However effective doses are generally at 4-5000mg. Like our current number#1, this is just a little sweetener to the pre workout.
Buy your own creatine and mix it in perhaps?
One of the most studied ingredients that goes into supplements. Caffeine will increase energy and endurance as you are training.
It’s been proven time and time again to do so. The dose in Focus Q is MASSIVE. So we’d be a little cautious when double scooping.
A form of vitamin B3. B vitamins are responsible for allowing your body to convert food to energy.
They also work by helping the body to metabolize fats and protein.
A good and fairly standard addition to a pre workout, but no means very impressive.
QSN Supplements Focus Q Pre Workout Dose
1.5 scoops. So 750mg of caffeine? Do you know how that’d make you feel? Pretty awful, especially when the crash comes around.
Even with 2 full scoops there’s going to be an under dosed amount of creatine in this product too.
4500mg of beta alanine won’t be fun for itching and side effects.
QSN Supplements Focus Q Pre Workout Side Effects
This product is fairly safe when it comes to adverse negative side effects, but there are a couple of things you should be aware of.
Beta alanine will cause some itching and discomfort through your gym session. Especially if you are double scooping.
The amount of caffeine in this could lead to stomach upset, headaches and crashes, again especially if you are double scooping.
QSN Supplements Focus Q Pre Workout Taste
Another pre workout that uses overly sweet and dry artificial sweeteners. You’d think at £30 a tub they’d use natural sources.
You can get great pre workout taste from coconut water and red beet, as 4 Gauge does.
QSN Supplements Focus Q Pre Workout Cost
£29.99 for roughly 1 month. Around the same as our number #1, which is dosed a lot better.
For the ingredients profile you can get so much more, for better brands too.
QSN Supplements Focus Q Pre Workout Review Conclusion
This pre workout isn’t too bad. It’s got a solid set of basic ingredients in it, but there are some minor issues with the dosing of some of them.
It will be fairly effective at giving you a solid workout, however you may need to double scoop, which could be a problem if you don’t want 1 full gram of caffeine.
