Conclusion of C4 Pre-workout
I have heard that this is a popular pre-workout, however I like Performixx a little better. You may have heard that only guys should take C4 pre-workout, but I recommend it for men and women. C4 pre-workout did not give as much of a punch, compared to the Performixx pre-workout I reviewed earlier. Not delivering as big of a punch as one would expect can be a good or bad issue depending on what you are going for in your workout. You can purchase it from cellular, vitamin shoppe, Amazon, and GNC.
