Better than the Extreme review by Allen on 2/13/2017
I think this is the newest version of the pre-workout. They have so many. Either way, it's my new fav. Energy is on point. Pumps are awesome. no sides. What else can I ask for?
Good pre workout review by Ron on 9/9/2016
I have tried many pre workouts but i always find myself going back to C4. There are those days that you dont feel like going to the gym and you just take 2 scoops of this and about half and hour later you are energized and ready to go. As long as i am working out im pretty sure i will take C4 to get me pumped and ready for the gym.
Really good for a beginner/medium level athlete review by Jordan on 8/9/2016
I have had this product in many different flavors and it always tastes good. I believe this is the first pre workout that I ever tried that the beta alenine actually made me "tingle." It was an odd sensation at first, but I grew to love it and now beta alenine is the number one ingredient I look for in a pre workout. Maybe it is a mental thing, maybe not, but every time I get the tingles I have an amazing workout.
Decent preworkout review by Tuan on 6/15/2016
I have used the original C4 with DMAA and it still remains one of my favorite preworkouts ever. This C4 doesn't have DMAA anymore, but it still provides good energy, and the nitrate gives a good pump still. Hopefully one day, Cellucor brings back DMAA. Still a decent preworkout without it though.
Great product and amazing flavours review by Brandon on 11/5/2015
So c4 has to be my all time favourite pre workout supplement, the taste of this stuff is amazing i enjoyed drinking it every day hah ! blue razz was my fav flavour along with the pink lemonade is it i used blue razz my girl had pink one i used mine up haha i was dipping into her pre workout and damn the taste so good. as for in the gym what a great product nothing has givin me energy like this in the gym you walk in ready to attack those weights id always complete more reps than my previous workouts using c4. my dosages would be usually 2 scoops with my highest dose being 2.5 scoops.
give c4 a try keep the calorie intake up and you will see some nice gains
All aboard the gain train
Great review by dav on 10/7/2015
this is my go to pre workout, good price and works great. highly recommend
I Love this product will continue to use it. Little bit on the pricey side. review by Alphonso on 6/13/2015
I actually Love the product.
horrible! review by Hannah on 2/5/2015
Don't understand the hype that surrounds this C4 product. the pink lemonade flavor was awesome, but that is the only awesome part about this pre workout. I felt bloated and crampy within the first 15 minutes of taking this product. the crash was so bad that I barely made it through the day! Would not recommend!
New Version Rocks review by BigHurtMU on 1/30/2015
0 of 0 people found this review helpful.
I've been using the new C4 G4 for two weeks and my workouts have been nothing but amazing. I started at 1.5 scoops and worked up to 2 scoops taking on an empty stomach (2 hours after my last meal). I literally felt it kick in within minutes. The tingles are pretty intense from the hefty dose of Beta Alanine at two scoops, but I like my tingles. I would then wait 15-20 minutes, have a 30g whey shake + fruit, wait 30 minutes and then crush my workout. I was previously using a PWO that also had 300mg caffeine(this is my personal max caffeine level) at 2 scoops and I can definitely tell that C4 is stronger with better effects. I also think C4 has been improved tremendously from the previous version. The addition of TeaCor is awesome. Along with amazing energy, I get a great sense of well being, drive, and euphoria that I didn't get with the previous version and most other PWOs. Performance was also great. I was starting to plateau on bench and with C4 the strength gains kept coming. Endurance was awesome. One workout, I even did a 30 minute run after an intense 1 hr lift with no problem, crazy energy. I did not notice any increased vascularity, but my muscles definitely felt fuller with a better pump. The only reason I gave it a 4 is because of price. At 2 scoops a workout, it gets a little expensive. I'm guessing most people will be satisfied with the effects at just 1-1.5 scoops. And btw, watermelon couldn't taste anymore like a watermelon jolly ranch - delicious! If you are thinking about trying the new C4, go for it!
Above Average review by Peyton on 12/18/2014
Overall, this is an above average pre-workout. It worked pretty well, but it's not my favorite. My favorite pre-workout is Amino Energy from Optimum, because it doesn't give you that unwanted buzz. This wasn't as bad as others out there, so it wouldn't be a bad idea giving it a try. It's a pretty good price, but I'm just not the biggest pre-workout fan.
Excellent review by Brett on 12/13/2014
Perfect formula for younger lifters and athletes. Just make sure you dont over use C4 due to having a cause of headaches and crashes. For older lifters id recomend GameDay or Arnold Iron Pump. otherwise great supplement
I basically said how I used the product. review by xcrunner on 11/21/2014
I got C4 the fruit punch flavor it tastes exactly like Kool-Aid. The only thing I did't like about this product was that it made my face really tingly and it felt like bugs were crawling on me but this preworkout gives me a good pump for lifting and for running. It doesn't exactly gives you better endurance but makes you feel stronger. Overall I really like it because the taste isn't that bad and it's easy to get down.
Average review by Peyton on 11/15/2014
Overall, this is an average product. It's actually one of the better pre-workouts that I have had, but I am just not a big fan of pre-workout supplements. I needed to drink a lot of water before and after taking this, and I don't like that. If you are looking for a pre-workout, this one isn't bad. The price is also good. However, I would suggest amino energy. It gives you energy without that bad feel.
C4 has good taste not great energy review by EJ on 11/5/2014
Taste of this product was very good, sweet but not overly so
Mixes well in a shaker bottle, doesnt leave any chunks and doesnt foam up too much like some other pre workouts
I was disappointed by the energy I got from this product. Got a little boost initially but it wore off pretty quickly. Energy is one of the main reasons to take a preworkout so that was disappointing.
Whlle the taste and mixability is good, the lack of energy brings the score down. Also the ingredients dont seem to be dosed at a high enough level.
Good choice for PWO review by Michael on 11/5/2014
This is a great pre workout. It isn't quite as potent as some I have used in the past (like the original Jack3d was), but you don't seem to adapt to it quite as easily (like I did with the original Jack3d). Make sure you cycle it though, as otherwise your tolerance goes up, and start with one scoop before slowly increasing dosage. You don't want to have too much of this stuff. There is a fine line between taking enough to improve your performance and taking so much that you almost black out under the barbell. Assess your tolerance and don't be an idiot.
Pineapple flavour is my favourite, and it does help. Just don't get to a point where you cannot workout without it.
Pretty good review by Peyton on 10/13/2014
Overall, C4 product is pretty good. I'm not a big fan of pre-workouts, but this one was pretty good. The price is decent, and it seems to work well. However, you have to take quite a few scoops to notice a difference.
Amazing review by Ashey on 9/2/2014
Love Love Love C4!
Amazing review by Tim on 8/21/2014
Just started taking this with a friend and its been a long time since I have had a pre workout product. Aside from getting heated up/sweaty a bit quicker this stuff is amazing. When we get finish with our sets definitely able to get 1 more push out of the set then when we were not taking the product. I am hoping the results continue.
Not all that great review by Michael on 7/13/2014
This is one of the first preworkouts I ever took when I started working out. I remember that it taste bad and gave me bad jitters. After the initial niacin flush, I did have a boost of energy but it wasn't sustained through the whole workout.
Great Price, Effectiveness review by Christopher on 7/8/2014
C4 is an old fall back option for me. I always have a tub of it around becauss it is super reliable. All around solid formulation for an unbeatable price. You will feel C4 hit your system and then take your for a plateau busting ride. Then you crash a bit, not too bad, but enough to mention. All in all though, I believe it is the best priced and formulated stand alone preworkout.
Love ths Product! review by Meghan on 3/4/2014
I first started using C4 when I was looking for a little extra energy to help me through early morning fasted cardio. It definitely gave me the extra boost I was looking for without making me jittery. The pineapple, strawberry margarita and pink lemonade are my favorite flavors.
IMO not as good as people made it out to be review by B on 1/25/2013
For me, C4 just didn't get me in the "zone" like products I have taken in the past. IMHO I believe this product is a good beginer pre-workout supplement due to its lack of significant pumps as well as its reluctance to provide extreme energy increases prior to a workout (I took it at 5 am). I probably will not buy this product again and will shop around for a different pre-workout supplement.
Love this product review by James Hamilton on 1/21/2013
This is the best pre workout I have used and I try to stick to it whenever possible. I have tried all flavours and none disappoint but Pink Lemonade is my favorite. This is the smoothest, best quality pre out there in my opinion. No crash or anything. Get this stuff if you havent already.
Cellucor C4 Icy blue razz. review by Michaelxfc5 on 1/21/2013
First off, I wanted to say, wow! This is my favorite pre workout of all time. I have taken many pre workouts and this is by far the best in my opinion. I will rate this product on things that I got from it. Pump, strength, endurance, focus, and taste.
Dosing was 2 scoops with about 8 to 10 oz of water about 15 minutes before heading to the gym.
I always get great pumps from c4. I love seeing my veins popping out all over my arms, makes me feel like a bad a**, haha. I even get good pumps on chest and back day, which for me has never happend before with any other pw.
I feel a lot stronger when I take C4. I seriously feel stronger as soon as I drink it, makes me just want to get in the gym and go hard,
I tied these two together because with the energy that I get from C4 it helps me keep going, and going in the gym. I never want to leave because I feel so energized. I usually wait about 2-3 minutes between sets, with c4 I can go with 45 seconds to a minute and I will be set to hit my next set with full power.
Focus isn't too bad. I still get distracted at times while in the gym, but maybe its just me. I have had more focus on other products like craze for example so I know that the focus could be better, but its not bad. I still get great workouts.
Cellucor really knows how to make their products taste great. I have tried many flavors of C4. Pineapple, watermelon, fruit punch, and blue razz(my favorite). You will not be disappointed with any flavor that you choose.
Overall ratting 9/10:
I love this pre workout and I will for sure always keep in my stack. I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a solid pw that works, and taste great as well. ;)
Great for Anyone! review by jr on 12/29/2012
Cellucor C4 was a good product won't use nothing else.
awesome product review by tj neuman on 8/14/2012
this stuff is it! Used it once and my workout was insane. The intensity..the focus..the drive..its all ten fold with this stuff. If you have had your reservations about trying it, do yourself a favor and give it a shot, you won't be sorry.
Taste great n works really well. review by Armando on 6/4/2012
Taste great n works really well.
Great Product! review by coolaidml on 4/27/2012
The Blue Raspberry flavor is very delightful to drink. It is not very strong or overly sweet. I have found that using less water is the key if you like it to be abit stronger tasting otherwise it will just be a nice subtle blue raspberry flavor. I have tried some other Blue Raspberry flavors and this one unfortunately isn't the best but is still a very solid option!
Product Profile/Ingredients: 8.5/10
I really like the product profile of C-4. First off it is low calorie/carb which is great for those dieting. It also has no fillers such as Maltodextrin or other carbs. Another thing I like about the profile is that it shows how much Caffeine your getting at 135mg. This is a greatstarting base for most people and will not overstimulate you.
I would give a higher rating if the product still contained 1 3 Dimeth and didn't hide some of the ingredients in a proprietary blend. I understand why companies do it but for myself I always like to know how much I'm getting of each ingredient. The good part however is that alot of the main ingredients like the Creatine & Beta Alanine are listed which makes it easy to supplement more throughout the day to meet daily requirements.
I have been cutting for many months now and have been making some good progress of late. Usually because I am eating very little in the way of carbs my pumps have sort of been non existent at times. However I have certainly noticed an increase in this area while taking C-4. It has been most noticeable when training areas such as the Biceps/Triceps.
C-4 has been delivering a consistent boost to my workouts. I have found that the perfect dose for me is 1.5 scoops. This delivers the right amount of energy without overstimulating me and leading to a crash after my workout. This product will certainly help you push through those grueling days when you don't feel like being at the gym.
Since the removal of 1 3 Dimeth from previous C-4 version I have found that some of the mental focus is missing from this product. While I still do notice more mental focus it is just not in the same league anymore like it was before.
This is perhaps the weakest link of C-4. I find it does certainly give you a solid boost to begin your workout but sometimes towards the end I feel that it wears off abit.
I have not had any issues while taking this product.
Overall Rating: 8.5/10
C-4 is a very good all around pre-workout which I highly recommend. If your looking for a product to give you an edge in the gym certainly give C-4 a try and I'm sure you won't be disappointed. You will find that your workouts will be more intense and you'll certainly be feeling more pumped up and determined to crunch out that extra rep which you couldn't before!
