Cellucor C4 Extreme Pre-Workout Review

Have you ever arrived at the gym after a long day at work and just didn’t feel like being there? That’s when it’s time to reach for your pre-workout. A good pre-workout supplement should provide your body with adequate energy and focus throughout your workout. Many pre-workout formulas also promote fat loss, increased muscle volume and the “PUMP” feeling (how they do this is beyond me).

Have health concerns about taking a pre-workout? My personal recommendation, I’m no doctor, but if you have health concerns you may want to consult with your doctor before taking a pre-workout.  Pre-workouts generally have large amounts of caffeine and depending on your body, you may react differentl.

Ok, lets get into the supplement review now.

Cellucor C4 Extreme Pre-Workout

What To Look For When Buying A Supplement

  1. Main ingredient
  2. Effectiveness
  3. Taste
  4. Side effects
  5. Cost

The main ingredient of this product is Creatine Nitrate (1 g per serving).

Creatine Nitrate Benefits

  • Increase lean muscle mass
  • Improved high intensity output
  • Improved strength
  • Improved power
  • Improved recovery time

Cellucor C4 also packs 1.6 grams of Beta Alanine and 1 gram of Arginine AKG. Beta Alanine has been shown to increase muscular strength, mass, endurance and reduce muscle fatigue. Arginine AKG has been shown to increase nitric oxide production thus increasing the bodies ability to build mass. Please know the studies to prove the benefits of Arginine AKG are lacking. C4 also contains an “Explosive Energy Blend”. You will find these “Blends” in many pre-workouts, the main ingredient I look for though is caffeine. This product contains 135 mg of caffeine. Moving on to the taste, my favorite would have to be Icy Blue Razz. Basically tastes like a pixie stick, that’s the best comparison I can give you. As for side effects, I haven’t experienced any negative side effects from taking this product. I have heard people complain about a “tingling” feeling after taking C4. Lastly, this pre-workout costs $39.65 for 30 servings. Depending on where you buy it the price may vary slightly.

Fitness Transformation

Fitness Transformation

Hey everyone, Jeff here with Water Jug Fitness! What better way to start things off than with a little fitness transformation! Over the past 4 years I’ve become very dedicated to living a healthier lifestyle. Leading a healthy lifestyle isn’t always easy, whether it’s not finding time to get to the gym or choosing a quick meal over the healthy one. I’ve been there, I work 50 plus hours a week (my choice) and have other obligations but I always find time to get my workouts in. Along the way I learned many lessons about proper dieting, supplementation, and training to help transform my body from a scrawny 135lbs to a solid 173lbs in 4 years.

How Can I Help You?

Let me start by telling you, I’m not a professional certified trainer nor did I get any kind of fitness/nutritional degree.  My knowledge comes from hours upon hours of training in the gym.  Along with countless hours watching fitness videos and reading articles to learn more about proper technique, supplements, and dieting.  The way I train, diet, and supplement may not be considered by some to be scientifically correct but I’m producing results and it shows. People will often ask me, what do you do? What supplements are you taking? How much do you train? If you would have told me 4 years ago people would ask for my advice I would have laughed in your face.  If you’re tired of not seeing results or liking what you see you can change, it will just take a little hard-work and commitment. Good news, I’m here to help anyone looking for a little guidance or motivation. Please feel free to email me at waterjugfitness@gmail.com for any fitness questions you have.
