C4, Cellucor’s most popular pre workout, is Cellucor's tried and trued legacy product in the C4 iD Series. This product has been, and will always be a product designed to give you energy and focus to push you through your workout. It contains CarnoSyn® Beta Alanine to promote muscular endurance and Arginine AKG to support nitric oxide production to help give you a great pump.
C4 Ripped is a creatine-free pre-workout supplement that combines the explosive energy of our legacy, flagship C4 Original with supporting ingredients to promote fat loss. This formula helps you train harder while supporting your body’s ability to burn fat. The C4 Ripped is formulated with many original C4 ingredients to support energy and endurance, however is designed to support fatloss by harnessing the power of l-Carnitine, Green Coffee Bean Extract, Cayenne Fruit Extract, and Coleus Forskohlii Root Extract; all without the Creatine.
C4 Ripped products contain Capsimax® Cayenne, which is a derivative of red chili peppers that promotes weight loss - specifically fat loss. This ingredient contains concentrated capsaicinoids which are responsible for the sensation of heat when eating spicy peppers. Capsimax is unique because it is manufactured as a controlled-release powder intended to break down during digestion to reduce the likelihood of unpleasant spicy taste or stomach discomfort. However, this encapsulation can break down very quickly when mixed with water. When this happens, you may notice a pepper taste upon consumption.
For this reason, we suggest drinking this product soon after mixing the product with water. This reduces the likelihood of the capsaicinoid encapsulation dissolving before the beverage is consumed.
C4 Extreme is the launch product of our PCE (Project Clear Evolution) product line. This product boasts a fully transparent label, made without artificial flavors or dyes, and contains an innovative formula with 25% more energy (200mg caffeine) and endurance than C4 Original, plus 2x the nitrates, to deliver enhanced energy, pumps, focus, and performance.
