Matt's C4 Dynasty Review

Matt's C4 Dynasty Review

@stad0203 sent me a bottle of this gargantuan sized tub of Cellucor’s latest innovation.

I was astonished at the size of this bottle. The only preworkout I have used with a tub as large, would probably be NutraBio Extreme PRE. This label is no joke and anyone who enjoys solid focus and stims will have a blast running this as their pre-workout.

Label:

Right off the bat - this label grabs your attention with the amount of actives.

Triple Citrulline Complex:

If you’re a Citrulline responder, then you will love the 6g dose of Citrulline Malate, combined with the 3g of L-Citruline. Throw in 1g of Citruline Nitrate and you’re are rocking 10 total grams. I would love to see a bit more nitrates in here, to take the pumps to the next level, but this is still a great pump enhancer for 90% of people. I am just one of those poor responders to citruline, which is why I prefer more nitrates.

You may notice the 6.4g of CarnoSyn and get worried, but the amount of actives in Dynasty dilutes the beta-alanine tingles. Try it and you’ll believe me.

Creatine Complex:

I would be happy with 5g of any creatine, but here we get another “tri” blend. 3g of mono, 2g of HCl, and 1g of Creatine Nitrate. Now the formula is peaking my interest with the 2g total of added nitrates.

The rest of the profile is where Dynasty will make you a believer. The ingredients are a cocktail for premium energy, mood enhancement, and tunnel vision focus. 350mg of caffeine is a tad much for me, so I will opt for 3/4 of a scoop moving forward - but I ran the full scoop serving for the purpose of this review. I was really in the zone when using this. Every set got full attention and every rep got optimal mind=muscle connection,

Effect:

Between the PeakATP, Tyrosine, Alphasize, elevATP and VasoDrive-AP - this formula is off the wall. I promise you can benefit from this across several categories of product - you won’t be limited to “just” energy. The best part of this formula, is that the caffeine didn’t overpower me.

Normally I get jittery with more than 275mg of caffeine in a single serving… to my surprise, that didn’t happen with Dynasty. The energy was powerful yet smooth at the same time. The alphaGPC really helps hone in the energy and focus it into the task at hand (weight lifting). I was very impressed with the synergy of all the actives.

Taste:

Do we truly care? Probably a bit - but the taste is great. C4 always delivers on taste, whether it’s a powder or a carbonated C4. Fruit Punch is my go-to flavor for all fruit-based flavored supps, so this works incredible as a stand alone (for taste) but also compliments other fruit flavors (Watermelon Vasoblitz) very well.

Takeaway:

C4 Dynasty is a homerun and will likely be a new favorite pre for any of you who try it. I love it and will utilize it once or twice a week for those days where I really need the pick me up (a tub is only 20 servings - so don’t rush it!). For the pump chasers, I might recommend adding some pump enhancers (Glycerpump, is you like waterpumps, nitrates or agamatine if you like roadmaps). The heavy stim base makes it a product I wouldn’t want to use daily - but it has a place in my arsenal.

I believe this is a limited edition product (@stad0203 - correct me if I am mistaken). If that is the case, I would encourage people who are eager to try it, to grab one before it is gone.

Great product, great label, great effects, which all lead (in theory) to a great workout.

Now that is a killer review!
Glad to see you enjoyed it Matt

And yes as of right now, this is a limited run product

Do you think the VasoDrive added anything specific that you noticed or did it just blend into the citrulline pump aspect?

I’m curious about this too. My only experience with vasodrive is very much memorable… But Idk if it was the product’s formula overall or vasodrive itself.

with 18 raw actives you will hardly notice one of them when in conjunction with 17 others. especially at 150mg

Point made… The dose I had was ~250mg… Also with 6g citrulline and 750mg Nitrosigine

Try the lemonade first it’s amazing!

I think this product is very cool and needed as a shock in the industry, but there is definitely a ton of mechanistic overlap between ingredients. I might be holding off until after my stim break to try this, but we will see

I didn’t get an amazing pump, so I can’t give good feedback on this one. I’m adding 1 Vaso-6 serving by SNS today. Let’s see how that affects it.

how is it a shock to the industry?

Cellucor came out with a 30g preworkout.

Someone in the actual mainstream did something actually different from their norm.

If you don’t think that turned heads and changed tides than I’m not sure what industry you’re looking at, lol

Not to mention full disclosure, which we are now seeing from them

Yeah I made a big deal over that in Project Clear Evolution and got a lot of hate for it. Never thought I’d see so many people resistant to being happy about some shifting in the industry.

Do I think Dynasty is the best pre? absolutely not. I said up there it’s got a lot of overlap and over-engineering. but I’m glad Cellucor has broken their mold

6.4 of BA
5 of Creatine
so 11.5 of 28.4 is kind of a throw away to me in a pre…

i do like the open label and respect the direction Cellucor is taking, is this a shock to the industry, no it is not.

With respect to all opinions, I would agree this is not quite a shock. NutraBio is fairly mainstream in my opinion and they have already done this with a 44g scoop. Ghost Legend CGV3 was a 31g scoop. Kaged Muscle Pre Kaged is 31.9g per scoop.

Maybe I am misinterpreting the “shock” you’re referring to Ben. Apologies if so.

There are definitely some out there.

I’ve seen the numbers,NutraBio and Kaged are still far from mainstream, household names.
Ghosts CG V3 was D2C…and Ghost has a history of effective products.

We’re seeing a company with the highest selling pre in the world bring out something completely uncharacteristic to that tier of company, and do it transparently. It’s just a different tier here.

What’s very cool is we’ll be seeing more legacy brands jumping on this with certain incentives being offered to brands bringing out these limited edition heavy pre’s.

Yeah outside of this little bubble we’re in here, it’s a shock. Plenty of better pre-workouts imo, but for a company that I’m guessing has over 50% of the market, it’s shocking to see them try something else.
