Great reviews (9.3 out of 10.0) over at bodybuilding.com [wrong product page removed, sorry!]
Let’s learn all about cellucor
Get pumped with this review from GNC
really wanted to link to this video from TwinMuscleWorkout but wanted to make sure you knew there are a few salty words. Pretty darn funny though.
I tried buying this on the wootoff two days ago when it was $19.99 but it sold out arghhh
While I haven’t tried this, I am currently using c4 and love it!
Why WOOT Sells this junk is beyond me… this crap is POISON!
“New data suggests that his is not an isolated case. Dietary supplements account for nearly 20 percent of drug-related liver injuries that turn up in hospitals, up from 7 percent a decade ago, according to an analysis by a national network of liver specialists.”
Oh c’mon…that article is talking edge cases and not so smart consumers. You have people sucking down things they haven’t researched, or bought from the local supplement shop staffed by high schoolers - looking for miracles and not following directions (or common sense a lot of times).
In the case of this product, I like it. Reputable company, and products that work for me. Everyone is different, but I give 2 thumbs up on effectiveness!
You’re right, people need to do their research.
I’m sure this isn’t the only known poison in this product, but NO3 (Nitrate, proudly proclaimed as an ingredient in this product) is a known to be toxic.
That’s… not even… Forget it.
Ended up buying this in hoping it’ll give me a little more boost in my workouts. Lifting after work is a bit of a struggle when you walk in the snow to the gym (no car) but not enough excuse not to go.
I’ll see if I can make some notes after I used it.
Essentially Cellucor went and redid M5, for reasons unknown.
This is the original product. With it, you have 1 scoop on the bottom that is the drink “base” with things like your basics like flavor, creatine, some beta alanine and some caffeine.
The top mini-scoop which you can customize is essentially beta alanine and caffeine.
Creatine allows muscle to better hold water/nutrients so it’s a no-brainer if you want size or the appearance of size. Stop taking it and you almost immediately look a little smaller. It’s essentially a cosmetic in vitamin form, but it’s also relatively harmless (as far as anything i’ve ever read.)
The other BCAA’s in the base are pointed toward muscle recovery (this is not a post workout drink though) and workout endurance.
It’s the booster scoop(s) that make the product different than others. The extra shot of caffeine and beta alanine will make you “feel” the workout. The caffeine will obviously give you an energy boost and the alanine gives you the skin prickly and flushed “pumped” feelings.
If you take it and don’t workout you’ll be hyper and have itchy skin. If you do a concentrated work on a particular muscle group you’ll get the tingling feeling in those muscles, not all over - though some people are sensitive to beta alanine and will itch all over regardless.
I’ve found the best solution to avoid being itchy is to workout at a fairly high level… otherwise you will be itchy. It’s kind of like a phoning-it-in litmus test.
The new formula of M5 eliminates the ability to increase the alanine and caffeine separate from the other supplements because it’s all a single mixture.
If you buy it, then you’ll probably end up with more boost than base unless you always take the max multi-scoop of the boost. Days when you’re like? OMG i can’t move? 2 scoops. Days when you’re like “Let’s do this!” then it’s a half or full boost scoop.
Flavor varies in taste from type to type - some are awful, some are ok. The base has the parts that taste medicine-like. The boost has nearly no flavor, so you can just drop it into other drinks if you feel so compelled.
Just double checked… woot is selling cherry limeade which is… different in terms of taste.
You know that bitter orange skin flavor? It’s that with some cherry flavor.
It’s not awful, but it’s a chug and go quickly thing. It mixes “ok” - you’re better off with a blender or magic bullet or something, but you can do ok with a shaker bottle. It’s not nearly as bad as the average protein shake.
While I enjoyed reading that bodybuilders are ingesting poison and getting bigger, I wanted to inform you that “Despite being a simple molecule, NO is an important biological regulator and is a fundamental component in the fields of neuroscience, physiology, and immunology, with discovery of its key roles leading to Nobel Prize-winning research in these areas. It was proclaimed “Molecule of the Year” in 1992”
Also, Arginine Nitrate helps drive nitric oxide into your muscles and bloodstream, promoting nutrient delivery. In other words, you can work out better and longer.
Interesting paper on nitrates/nitrites in the human diet:
Conclusion: Nitrates have great health benefits and are not poisonous/carcinogenic in adults with the exception of diets extremely low in vegetables/high in processed cured meats
It’s the Creatine stupid!
“I feel it would be better for no one to use creatine even though it’s shown to increase some strength and muscle mass,” says Jim King, M.D., president of the American Academy of Family Physicians.
“I wouldn’t recommend doing anything that would show minimal improvement and possible risk. Weigh the negatives and the benefits before you try it.”
Kids under age 18 should avoid creatine, King says, because few studies have been done on children using creatine as an exercise enhancement.
There have been reports of overexertion causing torn muscles. That can mean permanent damage. “Children are still in a growing phase, and we’re not sure what impact creatine may have on muscles and bones as they grow,” he says. “I feel very strongly that middle and even high schoolers shouldn’t use it.”
