C4 Original Pre Workout, Product Overview

If you have been to a vitamin or health food store in the last couple of years, you probably would have seen this heavily advertised product on the shelves.  C4 is currently the number one pre workout supplement in the world.  I wanted to test this popular product out on myself to see if it was just a bunch of advertising smoke or if it is truly the bomb.

I’m exited to try this #1 pre workout supplement out as I know several people that use it, and I’m always looking for something new to add to my supplement collection.  I haven’t seen many C4 pre workout reviews, so I’m going to mix it up and give it a go for you by putting it to a vigorous workout test.  I’m anticipating the best on this one.

I’ll let you know about my performance on C4, the amount of vascularity and pump, how much increased energy, and if I can go longer and stronger.  Don’t forget the motivation and focus factor is important to.  I’ll review how it tastes, and even let you know if it allows me to sleep that night.

The Performance Factor

I was able to give the C4 Original a try today.  My strategy is always to mix my pre workout at home right before I leave for the gym, that way it is starting to kick in when I get there.  I started feeling the tingling(from the Beta Alanine) after about 15 minutes.  Then I could feel the rest of the C4 coming on at about 25-30 minutes, right on time.

At this point, I had a short warm up and then started hitting the weights.  I was definitely satisfied with the energy that C4 gave me with its 150mg of Caffeine per serving.  I could feel my blood flowing harder as it pumped more oxygen into my muscles.  Another great thing is that I felt that I could not only go a little harder, but get a couple of extra reps out of each set.  This is what pre workout is all about.

I went a little over an hour on this workout, but I could have gone longer.  Sometimes I like to go for a run on the treadmill right after weight training but not enough time today.  Pre workouts work great for running also, and since they can last 2 or 3 hours many times I can fit both my cardio and my weight training.

I felt that that C4 did everything that it should have done, and I was not disappointed.  The pump, the strength, ability able to go longer and of course the energy.  I will definitely finish off the other 29 servings of my C4 Original.

I ended up buying the Fruit Punch flavor without paying attention to what flavor I was purchasing, but ended up being happily surprised.  Per the directions, I mixed one scoop with 6 oz of water(20 to 30 minutes before exercise).  I may have added a little more water than that, but I always throw in a couple of ice cubes before I shake it.

You can see my shaker in the picture to the left with the C4 being pretty dark red color.   I was very happy with the Fruity flavor.  However, It also came with that typical pre workout aftertaste, probably from all of the amino acids and caffeine.  I don’t mind this aftertaste, it makes me feel like I’m taking something strong… and I was.

The C4 Original ingredients let me get to sleep that night.  Sleeplessness can be a very uncomfortable side effect if you take your pre workout to late in the day or if you take to much.  On my next round with C4, I’m going to inch up the serving size a notch.  Reason being is that the effects of a pre workout vary from person to person depending on body mass, metabolism and tolerance.

So increasing my serving size makes sense because my weight is a little more that average, and I feel that I have a bit of a tolerance from taking pre workouts so often.  If you increase your serving, make sure you do it a little bit at a time.  If you increase it too much, there is a point to where you do not benefit from it anymore.  This is probably not good for your health either.

Here’s another option If you are looking for pre workout energy on the go, I recommend trying the C4 Energy Drink.c4-energy-drink

Price:      $29.97 retail
Cheapest place to buy:  Amazon.com
Container size:  Pack of 12-16oz cans

Pros and Cons:    Zero sugar, zero calories.  Comes in 8 different flavors.  Convenient for when you’re on the go.  May have to much caffeine for some.


I had a good all around experience with C4 Original Pre Workout.  The amount of energy and performance that it gave me was impressive.  No C4 pre workout side effect, and the price is right.  The final conclusion is that I would recommend C4 Original.  It will intensify your workouts and help you go stronger and longer.  Go ahead and add it to your supplement collection.

I’m not sure that C4 was the best I’ve ever had, but it was up there.  Keep your eye out for even more products from Cellucor.  I’ll bet that they will even have a C4 All Natural coming out before long.  Companies change and update their recipe from time to time to keep up with the market.   I know C4 made a big change a couple years ago that was even in the news because of the controversy.

C4 Original has several other pre workout combinations that are labeled differently such as C4 Ultimate, C4 Ripped, etc.  It would be impossible to talk about all of them, let alone try them all.  So I picked the C4 Original which started it all.  It is still the best rated and the best value, so it is worth sticking with.  Keep your eye open for a C4 energy drink review in the near future.

  1. Great review! You’ve really covered C4 Pre Workout from all angles and gave all the necessary information.
    This seems like a great energy booster before workout.

  2. I have used this product before and LOVED it. I love that they have an energy drink to pair with it for those times when you just want to grab something and GO! Convenience is so important for me on occasion. Thank you for sharing!

    1. Hi Kay,

      That is very cool that you have used C4, though it is probably the best selling pre workout in the world.

      I haven’t tried the energy drink yet, not sure if there is enough to write a review on.

      Since you enjoy the C4, I also did a post on C4 Pre Workout Ingredients, that goes into more detail on the product.

      Thank you,
