Cellucor C4 Extreme for Fat Loss

Jul 20, 2016 | by: Team A8

Let's talk about Cellucor C4 Extreme and how this is a great pre-workout formula to burn fat and keep your muscle on. I’ve taken Cellucor C4 in the past and it has been a great pre-workout formula, you get a great kick of energy, lots of endurance, and you are really focused.

Now I’m taking this product again, but this time I’m taking it because I know it helps lean you up, and now that the summer weather is almost here, why not get a little bit leaner? Let me explain how C4 Extreme helps get you lean by aiding with fat loss.

cellucor c4 preworkoutFirst off the main thing in most pre-workouts is caffeine, which is great for energy, but too much leads to increased stress, which causes decreased natural fat loss. When your adrenals are burnt out from too much caffeine and too much stress your body has a really hard time metabolizing fat. The amount of caffeine in C4 is extremely low compared to a lot of other pre-workout formulas. In Cellucor C4 you're getting about a cup and a half of coffee worth of caffeine. This means you don’t have to worry about getting jittery, burnt out, or crashing when you take C4 Extreme.

Another reason that Cellucor C4 helps with fat loss is because of an ingredient called bitter orange. This ingredient has great fat burning effects because it can stimulate fat loss through thermogenesis and lipolysis. This is really important if you want to keep muscle mass and burn fat because if your body has increased thermogenesis and lipolysis, there will be increased fatty acid utilization for energy, which means your body won’t eat it’s own muscle for energy, you’ll just be burning fat!

There are a few other reasons I like taking Cellucor C4 for fat loss and that's because I can still keep my strength up and perform great even when I'm cutting. This is because of 4 ingredients:

  • Beta-Alanine
  • Creatine MagnaPower
  • L-Arginine AKG
  • Tyrosine

These ingredients work together to increase mental focus and alertness while also decreasing perceived stress, increase muscular endurance and work capacity, increase strength and ATP production, and increase Nitric Oxide which increases blood flow and nutrient delivery, which also leads to muscle gain! I’ve been using this pre-workout for cutting and it’s been working great, so if you want to burn fat and keep your muscle on, this formula seems like its for you!

If you have tried taking Cellucor C4 Extreme for cutting, or are going to try it, let me know what you think!
