Cellucor C4 Original Reviews

  • First time user
    I was looking for supplement that will help me working out as I couldn't stay longer when lifting a weights. This is the first time I've tried this product and I was expecting that this will help me to boost when it comes to lifting weights but unfortunately, it seems nothing happens. It just kept me awake but I couldn't feel any pump as what I'm looking for. But I'll still give it a try for a week. I hope this is not a waste of money.  
    PS when buying a supplement better see the reviews first through online before going to the shop. It will help you to decide.

  • Subtle but powerful!
    The dreamsicle flavor is a nice change to the typical tropical punch flavor that most products like this have.I don't experience the jitters, even bumping up the serving size a bit to get the effect I want. Confident with this one.

  • Effective until....
    I have been using C4 for a while now. I have used other pre-workouts and i always end up switching back to C4. If you have the jitters when you take it, then I would recommend this. I like it and it doesn't bother me.  
    Because I have been using it for some time now, i have been needing extra dosage and the effect has been wearing off sooner than later.  
    None of the less its still a great product

  • 1st Time with C4
    Product mixed well, took about 30 mins to kick in with me. I only use one scoop but for me that's enough. Definitely tastes like Pink Lemonade after I thinned it out some. I liked it but will probably try a different flavor next time.

  • Ladies it helps to build that muscle fast!
    This is an excellent pre-workout! I used it to shed baby weight and build muscle. Doesn't give me a gigantic energy boost but it definitely makes me lift heavier and for longer periods of time. With being able to get in such a great workout from being sleep deprived from baby, it makes me feel less tired and in a better mood from all those endorphins being released. So if you are needing that extra boost to get to the gym I highly recommend. The creatine nitrate in it is a must for me, as I noticed muscle being build much quicker.  
    Blue raz, pink lemonade is what I have tried and they both taste pretty damn good compared to others on the market. I just put in 6-8oz. Of water and chug though. It will make you a little bloated (because of creatine) especially at first but it gets less with time.  
    I say this is one to try for sure! I think it will be your go to pre-workout from here on out

    When i received this it was sealed and packaged like it should. The only problem i had was upon opening it was all clumped up into one hive clump like it had gotten moisture in it. I used a fork and got it back to powder form but it was just an inconvenience. Other than that it's not too bad

    I haven't used C4 for a long time, and bought this off-line because it was easier than driving 60 miles. Also much cheaper for the amount. The taste is great and it does mix well. You feel the kick pretty quick, and I think it works great.

  • Fruit Punch Flavor
    First I would like to thank Cellucor for sending me a tub of the New Cellucor C4 4th Generation to try out and review. I took the Cellucor C4 4th Generation Fruit Punch flavor for approximately 2 weeks before giving a review.  
    I have to say that I was very impressed with the new formula.I took 1 scoop with 8oz of water since I wanted to access tolerance for the product before trying to increase the dosage. I liked that it mixes very easily like the previous Generation formula did however this 4th Generation version seemed to be more fine and powdery than the previous Generation product with little to no residue left on the bottom of the shaker cup.I like the fact that Cellucor chose to continue to add the same quality ingredients like Creatine Nitrate, Arginine AkG, NAT, Vitamin C, Nicain , Vitamin B6, Folic Acid , Vitamin B12, Beta Alanine, and Caffeine but also replaced Synephrine with a new ingredient called Teacor. I like the benefits of this ingredient as it is similar to caffeine in but last longer and also users don't develop a tolerance as quickly like the do with caffeine. During my workout the new Cellucor C4 4th Generation I felt a clean steady boost of energy that also gave me focus during my workout and didn't give me the 'jitters' or 'crash' normally associated with some other brands of pre-workout formulas. I also experienced some good pumps during my workout allowing me to push past my sets without fatigue of losing energy during my reps.I would recommend this product to anyone seeking a cost effective pre-workout supplement that works!

    This stuff really works! I only use about 1/2 a scoop to 3/4 of a scoop because I am smaller. It kicks in in about 10 minutes and I am ready to go! The Blue Razz flavor is great. Not too sweet or tart at all.

    Easily the best preworkout I have taken. I have used NO Xplod, 1MR, PumpHD, and a couple others and this still hits me harder, lasts longer, gives me a better pump, and 0 crash after my workouts. I will still try out others but C4 remains to be my go to.

  • Icy Blue Razz
    I don't write a lot of reviews do to the fact what works for me may or may not work for others. This product gives me a good pump, focus and intensity. Im going to continue taking cellucor products because they work for me. Ive tried several different flavors and for me they taste like jolly ranchers hard candy which I like a lot. I stack c4 with cellucor NO3 Chrome for a more explosive workout.

  • C4 Pre-workout
    I'd rate it 3/5. I'm very tolerant to caffeine and 135 mg a scoop is not enough. The beta alanine gives a nice boost, and personally I like the dose a lot. In my opinion people would benefit from this product more if it was stronger.

    The worst pre workout i think i tried in a while for me, I didn't feel any pump at all, only thing I can say is it does taste good and you can go to sleep easily right after working out. I wouldn't recommend it at all waste of money better to just drink energy drink then this thing.

  • First Pre workout
    Im new to serious weight training and i was falling short at the end of my workouts. My friends suggested c4 so i picked up a tub of pink lemonade flavored. Tried it for the first time today and it was insane. C4 meets the expectations of what a PWO should be. I had endless energy even though i had worked all day. Im a big guy (6'3' 230lbs) and 1 rounded scoop had me throwing the weights through the roof. Good job cellucor! You made another devoted customer.

    great product I have tried about 7-10 pwo's over the last 5 years, and c4 remains the champ for me. Back when jack3d came out i swore by it loved how it gave me the post euphoria for the day after workouts. made me look forward to taking it but once the tolerance built up it was dissapointing. where the c4 is still going strong after taking it on/off for almost 3 years. ive actually gone down to just one or one and half scoops now, where ive always had to max out the recommended dosages for every other pwo. and the skin tingling i get with it (same with jack3d) is what gets me going its a mental thing, once i feel it i zone in. and of course the trip to the toilet within 15 minutes of taking it everytime where i visualize the workout to come while on the throne lol.  
    OVERALL I would recommend this product to anyone looking for that boost in the gym. doesnt apply to all people but i usually wait to do my run about 4-6 hours when i take it just to be safe but thats just me. but i do HIT and dropset routines on it all time which raise your heart rate alot and im never worried with it. GET THE ICY BLUE! AND GOODLUCK EVERYONE!

  • EXtreme workouts
    I was new to the fitness community and to developing my body and I was sluggish and tired a single mother of two and I just couldn't muster the energy needed at 6 am to work out and then I was pointed in C4's direction. It was just the thing I needed for the get up and go to really put in a quality workout. The taste was great I am very picky to the point that I wont eat or drink things if I think they taste like medicine it was wonderful... and it worked so Win Win in my book I use it every few days if I am extra beat. Along with a lot of other Cellcor products! I am a fan for sure!!!

    When looking for a pre-workout the things you look for are 1.Pump..C4 kills that 2. Focus.. C4 yeah got that too 3. Fillers? C4 DOES NOT have that so you don't worry about having mud butt after every workout! Bottom line C4 is the real deal the the folks at Cellucor know what they are doing.

    Cellucor was as much over priced as it was a huge disappointment. This product was highly recommended to me and I was actually looking forward to this pre-workout supplement. It worked okay for a couple of days but after that I had a whole bottle of Cellu-fail in my cubbard collecting dust. Plus I mean most pre-workout drinks don't taste that great, but this one was really tough to drink as well. I'll stick to my Gaspari and Gamma pre-workout supplements.

    After trying several pre-workout supplements, I tried Cellucor C4 (Fruit Punch), and I have to say this product is carrying the right name, C4! I workout very early in the morning due to my business hours, usually around 3:00AM and not only does Cellucor C4 help to wake me up, but it I excited about working out. No jitters, no headache, no upset stomach, just a get to it attitude! I highly recommend this product, and yes Fruit Punch taste awesome!

  • C4 - Extreme PreWorkout
    Hey there,  
    I've used numerous sample packets of the various flavors of C4. Loved each packet,definately gave me the boost I needed before lifting. I dig the intense itchy and tingly feeling on my face and forearms,lol.  
    I ended up buying 2 tubs of the Raspberry flavor,still working on the 2nd one,flew through the first. Its a great pick me up,even if the day is an off day I still supplement it in the morning like I would coffee. Puts me an in awesome mood ready to tackle whatever comes along.  
    Love all the flavors,convenient mixability,tastes out of this world. Not too sugary,just right.

  • Works Great and Tastes Amazing.
    I've tried everything from Jack3d to Amino Energy and I have to say that this preworkout is pretty tasty. I personally take orange and it tastes pretty damn good, not to mention, it gives me a solid amount of energy. I like that the serving size is small, unlike Assault. For somebody doing high intensity, long workouts, this is a great product. Another bonus is that this doesn't contain 1,3 dimethylamylamine or an exorbitant amount of caffein. I've also had no crash with this product, as I've experienced many times in the past with other preworkouts. All in all, I highly recommend C4!

    I have tried about 5 different prework outs and this one barely working in comparison to a Jackd 3d, super pump, or NO explode.  
    Yes you can feel it a little bit and it makes your skin crawl like all prework outs do, but doesnt provide any extra energy.  
    It is just like drinking fruit punch, although I will admit it tastes pretty good.

    C4 is incredible! unlike most preworkouts you only need 1 scoop. The included shaker bottle came in handy as well. I'd recommend this to anyone who wants to try a preworkout for the first time. it comes with everything you need to get started, all you need to do is add the effort. it takes 1 scoop and you can literally feel this stuff working in your body, insane pumps, extreme cardio, unlimited energy, and raw power. DRINK A HELL OF A LOT OF WATER!! you get dehydrated quick with this stuff
