With C4 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 9 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!
Better than the Extreme
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
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
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.
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
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 **** 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
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.
I actually Love the product.
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!

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.
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.
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.
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
Taste 9/10 Taste of this product was very good, sweet but not overly so Mixability 8/10 Mixes well in a shaker bottle, doesnt leave any chunks and doesnt foam up too much like some other pre workouts Energy 5/10 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. Overall 6/10 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
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. Recommended.
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.
Love Love Love C4!
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
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.
