Love C4 Extreme. Gives me the extra umph I need to get through my workouts. I do two workout programs a day and this works great. The taste is better than a lot of other pre-workout I have has. I am impressed with every flavor of C4 that I have tried. Great products. *

This is review on the New formula of C4 (Generation 4). I had never had the opportunity to try C4 before and when I received the 30 servings I could not wait to give it a try. The first day I took it I found that it mixed easily with just a few shakes of the shaker. It was not clumpy and the entire product was dissolved. When I took my first sip I found the flavor to be good. (I had the fruit punch) There was no medicine after taste as is found with other pre-workouts. When I arrived at the gym I felt ready to go. The focus and energy it provided was fantastic. The pump was incredible and C4 did not give me any intestinal issues as other pre-workouts have. I have used it everyday for the past 20 days and I still get the same results as I did on day one. *

This is the first time that I am using the new formula of C4. Thanks to the Cellucor team and Cory Magrys in particular I received a promotional sample of the new fruit punch. I have used the old formula few times on and off and I can say that the new one is definitely better. The new ingredients add some extra punch to the overall formula making it stronger and more sustained. I like the smaller amount of caffeine compared to other brands which makes this product very useful even for people with lower caffeine tolerance. The powder mixes completely and it is so pleasant to drink. I work out very early in the morning so a glass of cold and refreshing drink is very helpful in waking up all the senses. By the time I get to the gym it is already kicking in and I am ready to go. I am just back from my off cycle and the first few doses have been amazing - greater concentration, less fatigue (I use two scoops of Alpha Amino intra workout) and overall stronger performance. The new generation C4 is definitely a huge booster to my performance in the gym and I would highly recommend it to anyone who is serious about fitness! *

Has been my go to pre workout for years... I never really "get used to it" as others have reported. I use it 3-4 times per week. It;'s not the most powerful product out there but those products I have tried generally give me a massive crash and I end up on the couch half asleep after my workout. Taste wise, berry is my favorite by far with is good enough to sip on if you had to do it. I'd definitely recommend. Thanks. *

I've also tried pineapple and green apple, and just got strawberry margarita. This Pre workout is amazing and flavours are great. I found the pineapple to be a little tooo sweet for me unless I add more water but besides that, all of them taste good. I've had good pumps, energy, focus. *

I took advantage of the Buy 2 Get 1 Free sale a while back and I picked out Pineapple, Strawberry Margarita and Green Apple. All three flavors are absolutely delicious. Hands down, the best tasting pre-workout supplement I've ever had (so far). I even mixed the flavors with each other to create new ones and they've all been badass. You just can't go wrong. They really taste like liquid Jolly Ranchers candy, especially Green Apple.

As for the product being more than just flavor, I don't know if it's just me but I really didn't feel any difference during the workouts, no "rush of energy" and no more "pump" than normal but that won't deter me from continuing to use it. Taking this has got to be better than taking nothing at all, even if I don't exactly feel anything, it may still be working. I haven't finished any of the containers yet but if I notice any solid results, I might update this review.

Totally recommend this. You won't get tired of it. The flavor alone destroys anything else out there. *

C4 is overall my favorite pre workout. It gives you great energy and an amazing pump which both last through the whole workout. I also have not had a bad flavor of C4. I just recently tried the Mystery flavor and it is amazing. What I love most about C4 is the dosing. One scoop does the trick and is great for beginners. Then when you get more advanced you can use two. You will not be disappointed. *

Talk about great taste, i loved it. C4 doesnt just taste delicious but gives great energy through your workouts. It gives good pumps, and also when taking it before gym gives you that tingly sensation that really gets me going and pumped to crush the weights. It also mixes very well. highly recommend to anyone trying to get good energy for your workout but not to much that you get jittery from it. great prouduct *

C4 is the best preworkout on the market. Nothing comes close for me personally. All my close friends use this product and will continue to use this product. It is a consistent pump and always gets me ready to go the gym. Recommend this product looking for great pumps and looking to get the best possible lift everytime. *

The thing I like about the C4 workout is the consistency. Just like other pre workouts you will build a tolerance, but I have only had to increase to two servings max to receive the same feeling as when I first started using this product. All flavors are great, pineapple is my least favorite, and it blends rather well with water. I have yet to have a workout where the energy from C4 hasn't lasted all the way through. After a month use I like to cycle off with theN.O. extreme, which is the creative free version of C4. Soon I plan to stack Cellucor's M5 Reloaded with C4 to see how well the combo works for a bulking phase. *

I have tried a few pre workouts before. Starting with Jack3d, no explode & c4.

They all had a good effect to start with but I found after taking c4 twice, it made me quite sick.

I would take it just before I left for the gym, by the time I was around the corner from the gym I felt ill in my stomach, extremely depressed and my mood dropped incredibly.

I am now taking 1.mr and I would not recommend c4 to women. I don't know what effect it has on men but It has had the same effect on myself and my best friend. *

Flavor: Watermelon

Have to agree with Rok's review. I also had the watermelon, and it tastes great. Mixes very well, and is one of the best flavors I've ever tasted in a pre-workout supplement.

I also personally experienced a strong resistance to this product. It gave me a good boost the first week I tried it. But, then it began to lose it's effectiveness rather quickly. Started with one scoop, then had to go with 2 scoops to get the same results at the third week... another few weeks, and I was taking 3-4 scoops... and has lost all its effectiveness.

Something I never experienced in a pre-workout supplement is how much this product makes you sweat. I've seen it mentioned elsewhere, but not here... this supp makes you sweat profusely. On particular hard workout days, this made me sweat as much, if not more as an hour of my muy thai training.

Overall: Meh. Tastes great, one of the best. Personally, not so effective. And I didn't like all the sweating. *

Honestly, the greatest pre-workout I've had BY FAR! I've tried all the flavors, but orange (not a fan of orange) and they all taste great! I take this stuff when I wake up at 4am for a quick gym session before I work and once I drink it, I'm focused and ready to lift! I've been taking it for around 5 or more months now and the stuff still does the job with 2 scoops perfectly for me! And I definitely can see the difference lifting with and without this in my system! Is a great buy definitely not a waste of your money! *

Mixability: 10/10--Mixed perfectly regardless the amount of water I used, no residue or foaminess.

Strawberry Margarita Taste: 9/10--Solid flavor when mixed 2 scoops in about 16oz H2O (maybe a bit watered down). Taste very similar to the Crystal Light margarita flavor, which is a good thing IMO.

Ingredient Profile: 8.5/10-- Contains Creatine, caffeine, arginine AKG, beta alanine, electrolytes and a few other cognitive boosters and vitamin. Pretty straightforward and efficacious ingredient blend, nothing fancy (and thats not a bad thing).

Energy: 8.5/10--A noticeable increase in energy, no crash either. 2 scoops is about 270mg of caffeine so its a solid bit of "pep".

Focus/Alertness: 9/10--Helps with focus and alertness more so than blood flow in my opinion; felt notably more "zoned in" leading up to my workouts.

Pumps/Blood Flow: 7.5/10--I don't train to get a "pump" really so its hard for me to gauge this, but I will say I believe agmatine is superior to arginine in terms of enhancing blood flow. Not to say arginine doesn't help, but thats just my anecdotal opinion.

Value: 9/10--Retails for $29.99 on the most sites for 30 servings (5g each) so this is about the average price point for a concentrated preWO these days.

Overall: 8.5/10 Strawberry Margarita is an awesome flavor. I was pleased with the results and had pretty good workouts after trying C4. I don't train for "pump" but still noticed decently enhanced blood flow, but the psychostimulatory effects and energy were fairly pronounced. If you're after a nice mid-afternoon "kick" and something to help you concentrate better during your workout I would definitely recommend you look into Cellucor's C4 as an option in your preworkout regimen. *

First let me tell you the flavor of Strawberry Margarita is f****** amazing. I find just dipping my finger in it tastes amazing.

Workout pump lasts for 45 minutes and have never been a fan of Jacked, just did not work for me. Used Bullnox worked decent, and switched to this and won't be turning back again (unless my body gets used to it then try something else for a phase).

Awesome taste, and pump! *

Like every other c4 strawberry margarita has great energy and pumps... Now on to the flavor, When you first open c4 strawberry margarita you just get hit with this wonderful strawberry smell which reminded me of strawberry bubbalicious from when I was a kid. Now my past experience with c4 is I found the flavors to actually be a little bit to sweet and strong so I always used extra water. So my first serving of strawberry margarita I used extra water, to my surprise it tasted watered down. so with strawberry margarita the flavor was not overwhelming but very enjoyable. The mixability is the same as all other c4 mixes instantly with no clumping. Want to kick it up a notch try mixing strawberry margarita with pineapple. *

I am in love with Cellucor's new C4 flavor Strawberry Margarita, as if they didn't already have some awesome flavors out there they go and kick it up another notch Emeril style- BAMMM!! I already love strawberry marg's but to be able to have some before my workout and still function properly with insane pumps, energy and focus; there is nothing better. C4 has become a staple and a go to PWO for me because of its effectiveness and how it delivers every time no matter the flavor, plus you can not beat the price per serving that C4 offers! If you are looking for a new twist on your PWO and are ready to usher in spring/summer go pick yourself up a tub of this awesome sauce and move some weight!!

Ok, so I purchased the buy 2 get 1 free deal on M&S. I'm on my 2nd can and I believe I can firmly provide an objective view based on performance and flavor(s). When I ordered, I received the Watermelon, Fruit Punch and Icy Blue Razz flavors. I have been working out for about 2.5 years, I'm mid 30's, 6' and 205lbs. I've used Black Cats, XPand, Jack3d, 1MR and Assault... including several samples of whatever by whoever, so I'm no stranger to Pre-Workout supps.

Flavor: The Watermelon flavor tastes great. Very sweet and as close you can get to a Watermelon Jolly Rancher candy. The Fruit Punch isn't my favorite, but it sure does taste like some Fruit Punch drink mix. The Blue Razz is excellent as well. For flavor, there's none I've tasted that beat this.

Effectiveness: I always heard a bunch of hype about this product, from guys at Nutrition Stores and I even asked M&S to stock this so I could try it and my takeaway is... it's ok. Meh. Before I try a Pre Workout Supp, I normally take a week off from workouts and supps to recover. I did that with C4 and it was potent with 1.5 scoops. After a week, it took 2 scoops (1 serving)... after a month, it took over 3 scoops. I personally developed a strong resistance to this, even working out first thing in the morning on an empty stomach.

In my opinion, 1MR is the best, followed by Jack3d, C4 and Assault in second place. This is good... and you may have better results. Great flavors and just as good as the rest.
