Well, previously I used to make my own pre-work out shake with banana and coffee. When I first bought C4 original, I was really excited. Unfortunately, it gave me much lessrt pump than the much cheaper banana with coffee formula.

  • 8 Tart Candy Explosion - Candy Shoppe Series

Starting with the flavor - tart candy tasted like to me like slightly tart fruit punch. I'm not a big fan of fruit punch TBH, but flavor was okay. Mixed very well, shaker is not required. Energy & Focus were surprisingly good. Energy lasted throughout my workout (1.5h) and kicked in quickly (15-20min). Pumps were not much improved (used 1.5 scoops).

Works great as a pre workout for me. I get no tingles from this product. My wife has occasionally if she drinks too much. I never go over 1 scoop and rotate 8 weeks on 1 week off. Again, good on Bodybuilding.com for free shipping over 50 bucks so they can compete with Amazon. I'd much rather give you guys my money!

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

I don not why, But the only flavor that made me fell something GOOD is Icy Blue Razz! the other ones! makes me stomach ache, BUT C4 is a good preworkout, that makes you give the punch!! I highly recomend this, and yes! you feel stronger, pumped, and high!

BEWARE: This product may bring on anxiety attacks! This product gave me anxiety attacks and night sweats - racing thoughts, uncontrollable shaking, sense of fear/dread and panic. I had to stop using it. If you're a person such as myself with any kind of history of panic/anxiety attacks there is a great chance this will bring them on. After much research I narrowed it down to 2 ingredients in this version of C4 that gave me the exact symptoms of my attacks. L-Dopa, or Velvet Bean extract, and the very common artificial sweetener Sucralose (Splenda). So please take my experienced advice and avoid this C4 blend! (and any others with these 2 ingredients for that matter) I assure you I'm not just someone looking to bash a product, but an honest former user with a very bad experience. Thanks for taking the time to read this, and all the best on your fitness journey. -Andy

  • 5 Fruit Punch

This stuff does not really provide me with energy or focus. I would much rather recommend Dr Jekyll or even GoTime based off of their profiles. The only thing that this stuff did for me was give me a headache.

  • 6 Fruit Punch

Had a sample of this took the 2 serving prior to workout and wan not impressed

  • 8 Icy Blue Razz

Got 0 energy or pump out of this product, despite being highly recommended. Taste was good tho.

Given the comments I have read here, sounds like I'm not the only one who thinks Cellucor modified this product! It's not as strong as before, u gotta take one & half scoop to feel the energy but not the rush as I used to get from C4! Cherry Limeade sucks! I'm sorry but I can't find another word! Now, I still have 25 servings of Cherry Limeade to swallow,

I used to love this brand and this flavor! I have gotten Icy Blue Razz multiple times but this last time I purchased it (I took advantage of one of the many deals they have going on) the containers were SO much smaller than when I first purchased them, and for the same price. Also, this time my mouth and tongue and lips are ALWAYS stained blue after I drink it and it never did that before. Like I said, I used to love this product and have been buying it for years but now I think it’s time to switch.

  • 10 Icy Blue Razz

  • 9 Icy Blue Razz
