C4

The Edge...

The greatest competitors in the world all have one thing in common—they’re driven by the ability to push limits. They don’t back down from a challenge, and they know that the only way to reach higher is to keep moving forward. 

For those of you who continue to set goals and crush them, we've created the next level of C4.

What's in C4?

C4 was the blast heard around the world when it launched in 2011. It’s helped gym junkies, weekend warriors, and competitive athletes everywhere rise to become their own versions of legendary.

The Fourth Generation C4 is the next level of innovation and refinement. Its formula is now more dialed in, more potent, and includes the breakthrough ingredient, TeaCor™ for improved energy that comes on quickly and lasts longer.*

The C4 formula includes ingredients that help promote energy, pumps and performance.*

Beta Alanine: An amino acid that supports muscular endurance. Beta Alanine produces a tingly sensation throughout the body that lets you know it's working.

Creatine Nitrate: Creatine bound to Nitrate. Creatine Nitrate produces two desirable effects on performance: Creatine for strength and Nitrate for pumps.*

N-Acetyl L-Tyrosine: It is a core part of the essential energy blend. It helps support peak mental and physical performance.*

Caffeine: A popular and proven source for energy.*

We Know Flavors

Fruit Punch, Icy Blue Razz, Watermelon and many more… We appreciate the art of creating flavors that people love. You should enjoy every sip of your pre-workout. C4 will make your workout that much sweeter. 

Experience Explosive Workouts*

The taste of C4 when you take a sip. The tingly sensation you feel as it travels through your body. The surge of motivation that hits you at the perfect moment-- right before you’re about to hit your workout...the only word to describe it is explosive.

Everything you love about your favorite pre-workout lives on, and the next chapter of your most epic workouts has just begun. 

How do I take C4?

It is recommended to take one serving of C4, mixed with 4-6 oz of water, 20-30 minutes prior to training. Once your tolerance has been assessed, you may take an additional scoop, with an additional 4-6 oz of water, 20-30 minutes prior to training.

Why doesn’t C4 have specific cycling instructions?

When the reformulation of the Generation 4 C4 products took place, it was determined that the product did not required a specific cycle time for the product to be the most effective. However, in regards to products that contain stimulatory ingredients, we recommend to use the product for up to 8 weeks, then discontinue use for 2-4 weeks. Over time, your body could build up a tolerance for ingredients that support energy. By discontinuing use, you allow your body to reset those tolerances.

How many servings of C4 can I take per day?

We recommend to not exceed 2 servings per day. If your workout schedule requires two workouts, we recommend to only use one serving of C4 per workout. To not exceed 2 servings in a 24 hour period.

Why does my skin have an itchy/tingling feeling after taking C4?

The C4 family of products are formulated with the amino acid Beta Alanine, which supports muscular endurance, and often has a tingling/itching effect experienced by users about 10-20 minutes after consuming the product.

Are there any flavors that are naturally colored?

Yes, the Pink Lemonade flavor is naturally colored by the ingredient Beet Root. Beet Root is the root of the purple colored garden beet, and because of its vibrant color, beets are often used for natural coloring or dyes.

How much caffeine does C4 have per serving?

C4 contains 150mg of caffeine per serving.

I am currently taking a PDE-5 medication for ED, why is there a warning on the label not to take this?

Because of the nitrate's ability to relax the walls of the blood vessels to promote increased blood flow, nitrates are frequently included in men’s sexual health products. Taking nitrate ingredients and PDE-5 inhibitors at a similar time could cause an unsafe drop in blood pressure. Because some dietary ingredients also act as PDE inhibitors, please consult a licensed qualified health care professional before taking this product with any dietary supplement, product, or medication.

Why was Synephrine (Advantra Z) removed from the Generation 4 C4 formulation?

Based on valuable feedback from our customers, we made the decision to remove that particular ingredient and modify the formulation to be even more effective than before.

Can I stack other Cellucor products with C4?

You certainly can, however you want to make sure to not take in an excess of nitrate ingredients, nor stack stimulant based products such as pre-workout and weight loss products. One stimulant based product to be used at a time (C4 Family of products, SuperHD, D4 Thermal Shock) Products with higher concentration of nitrate based ingredients such as the C4 family, NO3, and CN3 are recommended to not be used together.

so i recently got into fitness & being healthy & for a while i was just going to the gym and doing my workouts, but i found that i didn't have much energy to do more than around 30-40 minutes of exercise, then i went into aussie supps & they showed me C4, i tasted the pink lemonade one & just loved the flavour, so i brought it and tried it the next day and ended up doing a 2 hour workout because i just had so much energy to keep going! I would definitely recommend this product to anyone looking for something that is going to give you energy & tastes great! Can't wait to try the other flavours!

I got a tub of C4 from Cellucor for free in return for an honest review so here it goes. To start off, the powder was easy to mix with water and the taste was great too. I sort of expected to get pumped or something but I didn't, even after waiting the recommended time which I used to stretch. As far as getting pumped goes I never out of all of the times I tried it felt pumped. I did notice however that I wasn't as tired as usual after a workout. Usually after a workout I don't feel like doing much but since I've been taking C4 I tend to stay up to do some homework or study or something. I am still waiting on a product that legitimately gets me pumped. C4 will do for now.

II got a tub of the New C4 G4 to try out thanks to Cellucor and it is quite the improvement over the last formula. The new formula isnt drastically different but the right changes were made and the addition of Teacor apparently was another good choice. The effects of the new formula is much great than the last. More endurance, mental focus and the delay of lactic acid build up. The flavoring is still awesome. So for people that liked the last formula and or stim sensitive this is definitely worth a try.

Love the natural feeling to the boost I get from this product! Prior to starting this product, I was mostly caffeine-free (the occasional glass of tea in the morning was the extent of my caffeine). I first tried it with 1 "light" scoop and full glass of water and was quite surprised at the energy I felt! Absolutely no jitters, no rapid heartbeat and no nausea like I anticipated - just a nice boost to help me push harder through my workout! I absolutely recommend for someone who has a hard time staying focused (oh, look, a squirrel!) to help push through and maximize your workout without crashing afterwards!

I "took a break" from using C4 and was primarily incorporating the BCAAs into my training routine. When I found out Cellucor came out with an upgraded version, I tried the Pink Lemonade flavor. It tastes great, mixes well and I LOVE using it before spin class and other HIIT workouts. Highly recommended!

I have used many different brands/types of preworkouts over the years, and I cannot and will not steer away from C4. I recently got the opportunity to try Cellucor's newest version of C4, the 4th Generation, and I believe I have fallen in love all over again. I tried the Orange Dreamsicle flavor, which I had never had before, so I was pretty pumped to try it. So, I always take C4 on my drive to the gym which is about a 15-20 minute drive. I always use 1 scoop C4 and mix with about 8oz of water in a water bottle using a funnel. That's right, a water bottle. It mixes completely in seconds without a shaker cup. No grits and the true-to flavor means I am one happy girl. Any other preworkout I had tried before C4, I was having to choke down because of the flavor, grits, or both. Orange Dreamsicle C4 is delicious. The second I walk into the gym I can feel the pump C4 gives me and I don't want to do anything but workout. On the first day I tried the new formula of C4, I was getting reps in that I wasn't able to get in before, I was lifting heavier, and lasting longer. I finished the workout I had written down for myself, and was trying to find MORE exercises to do because I still had the energy. This must have been from the new ingredient in this C4, TeaCor, that gives you faster on-set and longer lasting energy. The focus I get when I take C4 is a big deal to me as well. Usually, I dilly dally on my phone in between sets when I don't take my C4, but I don't have time for that when I do take it. It's awesome and gets better and better every time. I am, without a doubt, a Cellucor fan for life!

I tried the original version of c4 in watermelon flavor and I liked it. It was refreshing and a little tangy but I found myself having to chug this one. The only reason I kept using it was because the pump was AMAZING and the energy was clean. I'm a full time nursing student along with a full time job so I need something to wake me up in the morning and this definitely did the trick. I would definitely recommend this new version of c4 just pick a different flavor lol

I just finished my first 30 serving container of Fruit ?Punch Generation Four C4. I’ll start out by saying I noticed a significant difference between the Gen 3 Chrome Series! The new ingredient TeaCor makes a noticeable difference in how long the energy lasts. TeaCor works like caffeine, but without the negative side effects. It is meant to come on faster and last longer! I have been a C4 user for over two years now and I have yet to find a better preworkout out there! I usually take my C4 on my drive to the gym in the afternoon (about a 25 minute drive) and start to feel the effects by the time I pull into the parking lot. The bet alanine gives you a slight tingly feeling, but definitely no jitters or heart racing effect. That is very important to me because I highly dislike feeling jittery during my workouts. My husband and I both tested the Gen 4 C4 together for the first time. Once our workout was over we had the same reaction. The energy was so long lasting! We both agreed that during our workout we felt a constant, longer lasting energy. No crashing afterwards or towards the end of our workout. The taste was delicious as well! I had the fruit punch flavor and its tastes just like Kool-Aid! So yummy! It also mixes very well with no clumps. Some people are concerned with bloating due to the creatine. I have never experienced any issues with feeling bloated or full. Overall, I am beyond impressed with the new Gen 4 C4! I just ordered Orange Dreamicle and cant wait to try it! I also want to thank the Cellucor team for providing me with this product to review!

Taste-10/10 Spot on! I could drink this all day to be honest. I have tried "LeCheek Hottie's pink lemonade" and this flavor stomps on that flavor. Couldn't have made it better. Effectiveness-10/10 I have had great workouts everyday from this product. Just the right amount of caffeine to help wake me up at 5am but not enough to over stim me. Mixability-10/10 No problems at all here. I don't have to swirl my cup before each drink. Mixes easily with a spoon. Overall-10/10 I wouldn't change anything about this product. Flavor is great, works great, and mixes great. Solid product !

I was given the opportunity to try the new C4 and review the product, and I must say the new formula delivers on giving you what you need when you need it. Retaining all the micro-nutrients from the 3rd generation (Vitamins C and B's, Calcium, Creatine, etc.) in addition to 100mg more Beta Alanine per serving. Cellucor also scrapped the old energy blend for a new, more concise one. At this time, I've taken C4 for 2 weeks and I can say with confidence that I have not felt any adverse long-term or short-term effects. C4 gives a clean, noticeable increase in focus and endurance that many other "pre's" fall short on in delivering. I would highly recommend C4 for anyone looking to get serious about their workouts and maximising their workout potential. Cellucor has not disappointed me before and the new C4 reaffirms my belief in Cellucor providing nothing but the best.

I finally tried the new C4 from the G4 line, and I must say, I was not surprised at the quality at all, since Cellucor has yet to fail to amaze me! The Fruit Punch flavor was on point, as I consumed two scoops in 12oz water and ice!! The pumps, as usual, were INSANE, and the new form of caffeine used was quite a nice addition to the C4 product as energy seemed to be more clean and constant throughout my greuling two hour workouts! I used the entire bottle in a little less than a month and I get the dame mental focus EVERY time, so yes, the new form of caffeine, I would say, is LEGIT!!! As aforementioned, taste was on point, energy was amazing and consistent, and pumps were always there when I consumed the G4 C4 30 minutes prior to my lifts!

Cellucor always have quality in their products. The first time taking this product, I used a half scoop to try it out. It mixed with water extremely well and it tasted like watermelon of course, but also leaving a cotton candy-ish aftertaste (which I enjoy). I drank it before leaving the house and was on my way to the gym which is about 10 minutes from my house. About halfway there, I already felt the energy kicking in and was gracefully singing along loudly to one of Pink Floyd's songs. I was so anxious to lift and although I'm not the type to want tingles, they were minor and not distracting as with other PWs. Ended up hitting a bench PR and did not crash at all. Currently at just 1 scoop per workout and I'm satisfied with this product.

The mixability was great too no leftover chunks at the bottom or any really hard dying left in the cup I would have to say this product is in my top 5 pre workouts that I've had and tried all in all this will be a staple in my workout regimen thank you again Cory for the free product from cellucor and the opportunity to review it.

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 without the kitters. 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.

I've tried many preworkouts, in an attempt to find a favorite based on both effects and price. I can honestly say the old C4 has been my goto, because there are usually amazing deals. That being said, I was excited when Cellucor allowed me to sample their new G4 C4. In my opinion, C4 is a standard preworkout. It contains the necessities at a fair dosage. 1.6g of beta alanine, and 150 mg of caffeine. It's not going to make you feel cracked out of your mind at the standard dosage and is already effective. When I take it, I always take 1-2 scoops and anywhere in-between. I've experimented it on an empty stomach and an hour after eating, both work just fine, about 20 minutes before working out. The powder mixed almost immediately. There weren't any gritty remains. I enjoyed the previous generations pink lemonade and I can say G4 didn't disappoint. In fact, I'd even say it was better, because it's not as sweet, if I remember correctly. With the minor changes from the old C4 to the new G4 C4, I thought I was going to be experiencing the same thing just with a different design on the container. I was wrong. Although most of the ingredients are the same, I felt a prolonged duration in energy. Looking into it further, I saw that there was a new ingredient. I don't know much about TeaCor Tetramethyluric Acid, but this might be why, considering the other increases in ingredients were minor. I'm usually in the gym for an hour to an hour and thirty minutes and so is the C4 effects. I felt a heightened level of energy throughout the entire duration. The new G4 C4 is impressive.

Nice improvement on an already great product. I've used the last generation of C4 and as everyone says it is an awesome Pre-workout and lives up to the hype. You can definitely notice the improvements made. Flavor is a lot more natural and smooth. Dissolves in the water almost instantly now. New stims feel smooth and clean. Great pumps and energy in the gym. Cellucor always comes thru with quality. Looking forward to trying the rest of Gen 4
