Not a bad one Cellucor, not a bad one. Used the gold standard pre, no xplode and my proteins one, that's definitely the best o them.


Works great with the muscle program from madbody.net

It works like it should except when I tried the watermelon flavor. Might just be my internal system, but when i used the watermelon no matter how small a scoop it sent me running for the restroom 30 minutes later without fail. I highly recommend blue razz or cherry limeade where flavor is concerned and neither gave me "the runs." Flavor aside c4 gives me a good boost and focus and a slow noticeable crash.

It works really well, gives that extra boost of energy for more than 1 hour and 30 minutes which is more than enough and gives that good pump.
