I have used this product on and off for years, but it's my number one go-to! Great energy spike, amazing focus, and determination to complete a work-out. I go harder, longer, and faster. The Berry Brainiacs is absolutely amazing. I hope that flavor never gets discontinued. I started intermittent fasting, so it's hard for me to tell if the 'Ripped' version helped with my fat loss. I've only been using this specific variation of C4 for 4-6 months now, but overall, I'm thoroughly pleased. A+++

I recently started working out with my cousin and he suggested this pre-workout for its weight loss claims. I've only used it in one workout so far but it was by far the hardest I've ever worked out in the gym. You take it 20-30 minutes before you start to work out, once you feel a tingling sensation, an itch, it's all money from there. It helps you push through. The pumps are real with this and I'll definitely continue to use it.

The Candy Shoppe flavor is awesome because it gives you this nostalgic, sweet taste of Runts candy, gummy bears, cotton candy... all the sugar-overload stuff we used to have as kids. The Ultra Frost flavor is really unique because you have this initial rush of something lemony & sweet with a light sour finish. Really odd to pinpoint, but pretty good. Overall, I like the Ripped series because it is a little extra boost of energy. After working out half your life you become a little desensitized to standard pre-workouts so this is a good boost to get me going while not making my heart feel like it is going to explode.

Excellent preworkout, the hint of spice after drinking it is definitely a nice change of pace, clean energy boost without much of a crash.

I had the opportunity to try out the Berry Braniacs and Ultra Frost flavors of C4 Ripped. I was pleased with the results. 4 of my 5 training sessions a week I train off 5-5.5 hours at 330 in morning while my saturday sessions at 630 in the morning. For training sessions I did 1.5 scoops for most days with the exception of leg day and deadlift day (2 scoops those days). Energy was more than sufficient for the early morning training sessions (along with 25 mins of HIIT cardio on the stairclimber or treadmill afterwards). Even on Saturday when I did a 1.5 hour training session followed by an hour of cycle, the energy help pushed through both sessions sufficiently. The Berry Braniacs flavor tasted just like just like a berry flavored candy, nice and sweet but not overly sweet. The Ultra Frost flavor, the only way I can really describe it is it tasted like the light blue flavor of gatorade. It tasted a bit like a snow cone but really hard to describe the flavor (I did enjoy it though). Overall, Id would recommend for anyone to get this preworkout.

I love the ripped formula for this C4. The energy blend is what I expect for the C4 brand. Not too overly stimulated but not so weak you can’t tell that you got some energy going on. Like the green coffee bean extract that is in this to help with the metabolism. My fav ingredient in this C4 is the Capsimax Cayenne Fruit Extract! The flavors I have had with this is awesome! Def something to try if you have not already!

Ever since this preworkout came to the market, it has been one of my favorite ones. I love that it has a thermogenic in it to help burn more calories during and after your workout. It makes me sweat a ton more and provides good, clean energy along with no crash. The new flavors are amazing, I am a big fan of the candy shop edition flavors. Mixes and tastes great

C4 Ripped is designed and advertised as a creatine free Pre that not only provides the energy you need for a great workout but also a "Ripped" blend that enhances your body’s ability to burn fat. this blend includes L-Carnitine Tartrate, Green Coffee bean extract, , Capsimax® Cayenne (Capsicum annuum) fruit extract and Coleus forskohlii root extract, all of which accelerate the fat burning process. this was very much appreciated by me since it is the beach season and i want to stay as lean as possible. this version of C4 is moderately stimmed with 150 mg of caffiene per serving. this is a bit lower than i normally prefer so i eventually upped the dosage to 1.5 servings and found this much more to my liking. like most C4's, this mixed up easily and with no problems. the Berry Braniacs flavoring really did remind me of some of the candies of my youth. tart and sweet at the same time but more on the sweet side. im normally not a huge fan of sweet flavorings but this is an exception. mixed up in 8-10 ounces of ice cold water, this stuff is really tasty and refreshing. Berry Braniacs is a solid flavor addition to the already fabulously successful C4 line. nicely done!

I was fortunate enough to be able to try both of these new flavors and they did not disappoint! The flavors were spot on! My wife typically doesn't like a lot of preworkouts because they make her jittery and she didnt like the way they tasted but she tried some of my Berry Brainiacs and absolutely loves it! The energy boost is good, it has just the right amount of caffeine for me and it mixes really well. Overall, this is a great product and I would definitely recommend it!

If you are looking for that skin crawling, face itching, and big pumps feeling, yea this is not for you there is no extra set or I feel like I'm going to max out today feeling. There will be a pump but for like 10 min with 2 over full scoops. This product does make me sweat more but does not keep me motivated

Started off with 1 scoop 30 minutes prior to morning workout 6am, and i felt it does improve my performance at the start of the session (core exercises) but it does feel like a short term spike. Flavours are both great but i do prefer the Raspberry Lemonade. After a months use of single scoops, I've now increased my amount to 2 scoops.. and again seeing the benefits.

C4 flavor testing was superb!!! Flavors are amazing, I used a serving scoop in about 8oz of water mixed with crushed ice. I am a huge fan of Cellucors C4 line and this doesn't fail me too the least. C4 mixes well with products from Cellucor but be careful to read the ingredients because too much isn't good. Mixability: 10/10 - No issues at all, no extra flakes give it a good shake or vortex spin and you're good to go. Overall: First off thank you Cellucor for making another excellent product, C4 products work tremendously. Not even that the flavor is a great starting point as well as it tastes amazing. But we are all here for the gainz and getting the boost necessary and routines in, I give this product a thumbs up!!! More Extras: ATP is a source of energy our body created, the more ATP the more our body can do. I won't be going into complete detail as I have learned all about ATP, energy systems, etc in College however one thing I found great about the C4 is that you won't feel any crash after training/workout. I felt the boost and noticed my training/workout lasted longer than normal. I could've gone even more, and it's hard to find a naturally perfect balance of ingredients in an energy booster, not only does it boost ATP/Energy within the body, the ingredients are a perfect mixture, plus no crash which is what we all need
