Alright I'm gonna try to summarize every paragraph to make it as short and simple as possible, because I personally don't like to read that much when looking at reviews lol. Im 21, been working out for approximately 7 years, these past few months have been very rough for my diet and my lifting, and I've been coming back consecutively for a little over 2 months, and saw that probably my favorite pre workout right now has only one review! I lift around 5-12 reps depending on the exercise. I am 5'7 154lbs So here it is

Ingredient Profile

carnosyn beta alanine - basically patented version of beta alanine, a lot of us love/hate the crazy tingly feeling we get from it lol, it is proven to aid in muscle fatigue and helps with lactic acid at the recommended dosage of 2-5g. This has 3.2 which i think is perfect

creatine nitrate - supposed to be more available to your body than mono, but i don't believe 1g is a sufficient dose

aakg - helps give u a great pump, but i did find that sufficient dose is 1.5g so it seems to be slightly underdosed here, but no complaints in the pump department.

last thing on ingredient list is a proprietary blend only telling us how much caffeine it has which is 300mg which for me is perfect.


taste in a pre workout is unimportant to me, but this one does taste very good not a strong or weak taste I've had all flavors except lemon drop, my favorite is probably the blue raz/ mixability with pre workouts is usually really good, it mixes fine with a spoon, dosing is also perfect


now to the most important part of the review. I've taken plenty of pre workouts throughout the years, and when i don't know which new one i want to try, i go back to this one, its awesome, energy is great there are some days I'm feeling tired or lazy and take this and I'm ready to go and feeling itchy in 15 minutes. I do have improved mood, energy, and pumps, even after the gym I'm still energized and ready to go for another few hours. I love the original c4, but i find myself needing to take around 2 scoops every time, which ends up having an equal amount of beta alanine and caffeine as this product which i only need 1 scoop. Great pumps, i've never really had any issue getting a good pump, but this gives me a little extra bump in hardness and vascularity. Endurance is fantastic, i noticed i do feel a little bit less of a burn when I'm getting to the end of the set which i think is good? I haven't tried cardio with this because i don't do cardio, but in the higher rep ranges or last few sets I am able to lift closer to the same amount of reps as first set more than without pre.


i rated value at around 9.4 because it is $40 but i only need one scoop, sometimes i don't even take a full one i take like 5/6 depending on how I'm feeling, but for some of you who are bigger or more stim tolerant this might not be the product for you.

Side Effects

no side effects other than the itchy, tingly feeling of beta alanine which like i said, some of us like it and some hate it.


Like i said i tried to keep this short and simple, i love this product because i only have to take 1 scoop, as opposed to the two scoops of c4 original, but you also get twice as much creatine nitrate and aakg, you can mix this with a pump product which i don't think is really necessary but everyones different. For me 300mg of caffeine and 3.2g of beta alanine is excellent, i still get a great pump and i do take creatine hcl post workout, so the 1g of creatine nitrate in here is just a good plus. I highly recommend this product whether youre just starting or if you've been lifting for a while. I don't think there's anything I've missed, but if i did or you guys have any questions, leave a comment and ill get back to you asap

    i do not intend to try the ultimate version because i think its supposed to be similar to pre kaged and pre jym

    Ok, thank you. So this is the best C4 that you have tried, not necessarily the best C4 on the market?

    well its the best one in my opinion, i personally did not like pre kaged or pre jym that much and i know c4 ultimate has a couple of different ingredients but the price is a little too much for me.
