I must admit, over the last 5 years, I have been in search of the perfect pre-workout, or at least the perfect pre-workout for me. I have tried all different types, from stimulant-free to stimulant-heavy. I have tried brands such as Cardio Cuts, Bucked Up, Pre-Kaged, Woke, and so many more. At some point, I found that the brand that I have had the most success with is Cellucor C4. The problem with C4 is that they have like 8 or 9 different types ranging in price from $19.99 all the way up to well over $75, so it is really confusing. I have tried all of the C4 types at some point, with the exception of C4 Dynasty MMXX, because I can’t bring myself to spend over $70 on a pre-workout.
Now I could spend an hour going on and on about which one is the best, rating them by potency, etc., but I won’t. The simple fact is that I have found (for me) that the best bang for the buck is C4 Ultimate (not to be confused with Ultimate Shred). Now you could grab it on Cellucor’s site for around $45 at the time of publishing, but I typically buy it when I can find it on sale at GNC or at Amazon where they typically have the best daily price.
What is it that I like about C4 Ultimate? The tingles, the stimulation I get, and the overall success of my workouts when I take it. While the C4 Ultimate Orange Mango is the best flavor I have found, I have found the flavors don’t vary much from tier to tier. It is the effectiveness of the Ultimate tier that I like.
If you have a favorite pre-workout that you like. Let us know and tell us why. As much as I love C4, my journey to find a better pre-workout is never-ending.
