C4 Ripped includes a fat melting formula crafted to enhance weight loss with a multitude of supplements while providing users with a substantial amount of energy.
This product is unlike others in the 4th generation product line because it has a dual function. C4 Ripped is offered in 4 different flavors including: Raspberry Lemonade, Cherry Limeade, Fruit Punch, and Blue Raspberry.
C4 Ripped formula is closely related to another member of Cellucor’s 4th generation product line, C4 Mass. The main difference between the two being C4 Mass contains creatine monohydrate and 27.5g of sugar, while C4 Ripped contains less sugar, and no creatine monohydrate.
Ingredients in C4 Ripped
C4’s Ripped ingredients include 1g of Ripped Blend and 371mg of Explosive Energy Blend per serving. The serving size of one scoop is 6g, of that 6g roughly 1g of the product is the listed fat burning and energy boosting formula. The original C4 Explosive Energy Blend remains relatively unchanged within the formula (excluding the creatine) and the Ripped Blend contains the following fat burning supplements:
- Beta Alanine at 1.6g per serving, roughly one fourth of the daily recommended intake used to help combat muscle fatigue.
- Arginine AKG Assists in building muscle

Artificial ingredients include artificial sweeteners (Acesulfame potassium and sucralose), artificial coloring, and artificial flavoring.
Serving Information for C4 Ripped
Cellucor suggests to USE ONLY AS DIRECTED. Take one serving (1 scoop) of C4 Ripped, mixed with 6 fl. oz. of water 2030 minutes before training. Once tolerance has been assessed and you are looking for an additional boost of energy, take one additional serving (1 scoop) before training. DO NOT EXCEED 2 SCOOPS PER DAY. When mixing you will notice C4 Ripped mixes fairly easily into the 6fl. Oz. of water just like the other C4 products and the consistency does not have chunks or sediment on the last sip.
Overall Performance With This Pre Workout
Each of the flavors offered in the C4 Ripped line taste delicious, some might even forget they are drinking a pre workout. The effects of the supplement should start kicking in roughly 30 minutes after consuming the product. One might start to feel a tingling in the arms and/or the face.
This pre workout does not have the typical crash and burn effect like many other products on the market, rather it gives a sense of motivation and energy preparing users for a successful workout. C4 Ripped will certainly make you sweat, but because it is a thermogenic weight loss supplement it may cause dry mouth, therefore staying hydrated while working out is crucial.
Keep in mind C4 Ripped comes from a long line of C4 products all designed for a specific purpose. If you are looking for a great tasting creatine free pre workout with ingredients designed to increase fat loss then C4 Ripped is the pre workout for you.
The Explosive Energy Blend will get you going and keep you going. The Ripped Blend will help you get rid of that unwanted fat, but for some it may not be enough as compared to the other C4 products in Cellucor’s 4th generation product line.
The original C4 or C4 50x has double the potency as the original C4 currently offered and may be more suitable for some. If you are looking for a pre workout that will help gain weight then take a look at C4 Mass which is designed to help gain muscle mass. Are you having trouble finding that mental strength to get you to the gym and cranking out sets? C4 Neuro is designed for mental energy and worth taking a look at.
The 4th generation product line has supplements for many different types of people looking for multiple results. C4 Ripped has proven to help with both weight loss and provides users with more energy during the workout. This product will run you about $39.99 for 30 servings.
