Product Overview

C4 Extreme
C4 Extreme Container

Performance Energy Evolved

Over two years in the making, spanning multiple formula tweaks and hundreds of flavor tests, C4® Extreme has been re-engineered and re-imagined from the ground up to help support explosive energy, extreme performance, powerful pumps, and mental alertness.* This is the product that defined a category, now evolved and updated.

We ran C4® Extreme through several hundred rounds of flavor sampling to make sure it exceeds every expectation, and we didn't settle for anything less than the best. If a flavor didn't measure up, we moved on. We're proud to say that C4® Extreme's flavor array wins in every way — including our new, naturally sweetened flavors.


Nitramax (NO3-C)™

Unlike Citrulline or Citrulline Malate, which work through a single mechanism, Nitramax™ supports two mechanisms of NO creation, the arginine pathway (eNOS) and the nitrate-nitrite conversion system, to help promote the ultimate pump.* Created by bonding citrulline with patented nitrates, Nitramax (NO3-C)™ is an advanced compound that delivers dual-pathway nitric oxide (NO) support.*

  • No Artificial Dyes.
  • No Artificial Flavors.
  • Fully Transparent Label.
  • No Proprietary Blends.
  • Innovative Ingredients.
  • Enhanced Formulas.

Introducing Project Clear Evolution: our mission to set a higher standard in sports nutrition. To elevate the entire C4® family—and beyond—by pioneering the next generation of premium, better-for-you performance supplements.

We're swapping artificial colors and flavors in favor of natural options, peeling back prop blends to showcase all the performance ingredients that make our products tick, and boosting our formulas with enhanced inputs for extreme performance.* This is the future of sports nutrition, and it starts with the all-new C4® Extreme.

Patented And Clinically Studied Ingredients

Caffeine Explosive Energy*

Caffeine anhydrous supports energy, mental alertness, and mental and physical performance.*

Carnosyn® Beta-Alanine Muscular Endurance*

This patented form of beta-alanine has been clinically shown to fight fatigue and improve muscular endurance.*

Nitramax (NO3-C)™ Citrulline Nitrate Nitric Oxide Booster*

Our exclusive dual pathway nitric oxide (NO) amplifier is formulated with patented nitrates to support better pumps and arc like lightning in your veins.*

NO3-T® Creatine Nitrate 2 in 1 Creatine & N.O. Booster*

This 2-in-1 performance and pump amplifier, both a creatine and NO booster, is formed when creatine is bonded with nitrates. Creatine Nitrate may help support strength, size, and pumps.*

As a fan of all C4 products, I was and am really excited to see a naturally sweetened line of this product, finally! This is a really good, rather lower stim dose of preworkout which allows me to have some coffee during the day without getting weired out by too much caffeine. 200mg is perfect for a pre in my opinion, I am not a huge fan of really stimulant products. This performs very well for what is in it, but I would like to see more Beta Alanine and Citrulline in it as the pumps could be a little better. That aside, I love this product. The flavor for being stevia flavored is the absolute best I've had, period in this catagory. Cherry Limeade is outstanding. The mixability is perfect, no clumping and complete dissolution in 8-10 oz of water. Highly recommend this product and flavor!!

The blueberry lemonade is awful, tastes like straight chemicals. Tried dif amounts of water, dry shot, it is unusable. I hate to waste it but even mixed with others I can't even do it. Other flavors have been really good, decent energy, not bad for the price.

Ignoring the fact that it was the worst pre workout I've ever tasted which I don't really care about anyway, the energy levels are very high for the start of my workouts but doesn't seem to sustain for as long as, evgn or pre kaged ect.

You can tell Cellucor put a lot of time and effort into C4 Extreme. This Pre-workout is totally well-rounded, with a big aspect of being clean as well. As far as being clean, there's no dyes or artificial flavors, which you cannot say for a lot of products. It's also totally transparent on the label, so you know what you're actually consuming. As to the ingredients, the 200mg of caffeine is a nice dose, not too much so as to be too much caffeine in one scoop. There's also Carnosyn for endurance and Nitramax which gives some good pumps. Also, there's a dose of creatine for those looking for convenience giving creatine and a pre-workout as one. My experiences is that this product is very well-rounded in the 3 areas of pre's, being energy, focus and pumps. I had a good amount of all 3, and you could feel all 3 of those areas with one scoop. Finally, the flavor was great. Icy blue razz, with no dyes or artificial colors was perfect. I love Cellucor's blue razz flavors, and the mixing of one scoop with water in a shaker was as great as expected. Overall, a well-balanced pre-workout, with transparent label, makes for a great pre-workout!

C4 Extreme Blue Raspberry Taste: Taste is awesome, they managed to get the same blue raz flavor in a product without all the additives Mix ability: No surprise here, no particles or anything after mixing. Also, sometimes I just toss a scoop in my mouth and no issue with that dissolving either. Price: Pretty much same price point as other Cellucor products which in my opinion are highly competitive. Effect: I like the 200mg of caffeine considering I've got a high tolerance for caffeine, you also get a good pump and go longer from the Beta Alanine and NO, and I always welcome creatine in my pre's. Overall: Another awesome product from cellucor, but without all the additives makes this my new go to for sure. Not a big fan of dyes and stuff being added to my pre's so this definitely puts this at the top

This preworkout didn’t disappoint! Nice steady release of energy, not too crazy tingling and no crash during or after the workout. Flavor was okay, not the best or worst. I usually supplement my preworkout with a pump product but with this one, it’s not needed

Where do I start?? I’ve been a longtime fan and user of Cellucor’s C4 preworkout and I was lucky enough to try their new C4 extreme and I’m very impressed! I noticed the flavor is a more light flavor and the coloring is lighter due to using natural ingredients. I took one scoop before the gym and I had one of my best workouts that have me some insane energy throughout. Even a few hours after I felt the energy. They got this product out of the park!!!

Cellucor back with another great product. I love the C4 line and Extreme is no exception. The kick you get is fantastic, smooth and no real crash (at least for me). The icy blue razz doesnt taste chemically at all and provides a great workout.

Really liked the added boost this gives to my workouts. Flavor is on point and no residue left once mixed. Again C4 does not disappoint.

I received a 30 serving tub in the mail from Nutrabolt to try out and review and this is my honest feedback after using it a few times. I will be basing my review off a 10gm serving NOT the recommended 6.4 gm on the label. The reason for this is that I only use caffeine before I weight train and no other time of the day and honestly 200mg of caffeine is slightly on the low side when you train at 5 or 6 a.m. My big gripe about this PW is the word EXTREME plastered on the front label and let me tell you I have a lot of experience with pre's and supplements in general and there is NOTHING extreme about this ingredient profile. The big deal Nutrabolt is making about this version of C4 is the fact that they didn't use any artificial flavors or coloring and it's not a prop blend so the ingredients are disclosed but it's a weak profile so why the EXTREME ? The powder mixes very well with no foam and just a bit of sediment but really no mixing issues at all. The flavor which is a light refreshing blue raspberry with a hint of lemon at the end with no heavy overly sweet after taste is definitely enjoyable for anyone who likes blue raspberry. The energy at a 10gm dose hit's smoothly but there really isn't anything extreme about it and it just feels like a smooth kick of caffeine. There really isn't any crazy focus, mood boost, and pumps were definitely nothing to yell about so again where does the EXTREME come in. This PW in my opinion at 6.4gm delivering 200mg of caffeine is perfect for caffeine and stimulant sensitive people and that's how it should have been marketed because there are many people out there who are sensitive to caffeine and 200mg is perfect for them but the pump and performance on this is weak. This needs at least 3gm of L-Citrulline or 6gm of Citrulline Malate to work with the nitrates that are in this formula to deliver a better pump. In my opinion there are better options on the market for someone who is sensitive to caffeine where they won't have to add anything to the pre-workout for it to be more effective,

I used this after a 4 week steam break. I am very happy with it and would highly recommend it. The profile is clean and straight forward, the taste is awesome, and the energy is great and lasting. You will not be disappointed.
