**UPDATE ON 2017 FORMULA** It gives me heartburn after trying it again. Not the same when compared to some of the better quality and pricier pre's but its great for its value. **2014** C4 does exactly what it says, gives you that pre-workout pump and lasting endurance 'till the end. I have not had any problems sleeping with this product as I normally use it around 6 hours before bed. Upon first taking this product as it was my first pre-workout I definitely noticed the "jitters and skin tingling" but after daily use I have grown accustomed to it and feel no upsetting side effects. I take this product on an empty stomach for maximum effectiveness and it definitely gets me in the zone. Also, I like to pour the powder straight into my mouth then chase with some water, gets it all in there at once.

I recently ordered some Whey Protein and received a sample pack of C4 Pre-Workout. Well I wasn't sure how it would work with me...however! I tried it today a half hour before getting off of work. I went to our workout facility and started my weight lifting workout. All I can say is WOW!!! I got the boost I needed to power through my workout and pushed a bit harder than I normally would. I went to the store afterwards to pick up a few things, and the energy level was still rising! This stuff is great! So I ordered a month supply to try mid day at work and for my workouts as by the end of the day I am tired and find many excuses to skip my workouts. Now I'm curious to how long this will last! I'll post back with more results!

I'm pretty picky when it comes to adding something new to my supplement regimen but after several years of testing multiple pre-workout drinks, Cellucor's C4 has successfully made it into my personal arsenal for good. Although I've tried more potent formulas out there, Cellucor's seems to be the "cleanest" in regards to not caffeine-spiking and the ingredients they use. I can take two shots of this 20-30 minutes before my workout and get a good pump without the headaches or the jitters. Overall, excellent product and I stand by this!

The flavor is OK. I thought I'd give this a try but didn't do anything I expected, I felt no effect from it before or during my workout. I would not buy again or recommend this product to anyone.
