Axe & Sledge Hydraulic

Stimulant Free Pre-Pump

Some call Hydraulic the “master of pumps”, while we call it our stimulant-free pre-workout. Not only does Hydraulic significantly increase muscular pumps, but it also enhances focus, energy, and performance, all without the use of any stimulants.

By using five patented ingredients including Nitrosigine®, CarnoSyn® Beta-Alanine, Creatine MagnaPower®, AgmaMax™, and GlycerSize™, we were able to make a stimulant-free pre-workout that you can actually feel!

Hydraulic expresses its effects by increasing the diameter of your blood vessels, which allows for greater blood flow, nutrients, and oxygen to be delivered to your muscles. Hydraulic also helps shuttle metabolic waste products, such as lactic acid, away from the muscles. This enables the body to regenerate energy more efficiently and for a longer period of time. Not to mention, Hydraulic contains several ingredients that give you laser focus.

Hydraulic was specifically designed by Seth Feroce himself to:

  • Increase muscular pumps and performance
  • Improve work capacity
  • Enhance the mind-to-muscle connection
  • Elevate focus and energy levels
  • Promote recovery

Whether you're training late at night and don’t want to interrupt your sleep or already had enough stimulants throughout the day, Hydraulic is the perfect solution to a phenomenal workout. Hydraulic is truly one of a kind and the only stimulant-free pre-workout made for the hardest workers in the gym. Hydraulic is our number one selling product because there’s nothing else that comes close.


Prior to training, take a big pump serving (1 scoop) or extreme pump serving (2 scoops) by mixing thoroughly with 8-10 ounces of cold water or beverage of choice.

Stacking Options

Hydraulic is phenomenal on its own, but you can also stack it with the following products for even greater results:

  • Mix 1-2 scoops of Hydraulic with 1-2 scoops of Demo Day in 8 to 10 ounces of cold water
  • Consume 20-30 minutes prior to training

Ignition Switch: stimulant-based pre-workout

  • Mix 1.5 scoops of Hydraulic with 1 scoop of Ignition Switch in 8 to 10 ounces of cold water
  • Consume 20-30 minutes prior to training

Seth’s 1-1-1 Stack

  • Mix 1 scoop of Hydraulic with 1 scoop of Ignition Switch and 1 scoop of Demo Day in 8 to 10 ounces of cold water
  • Consume 20-30 minutes prior to training

Flavor Profiles

It’s important to note that every flavor Axe & Sledge creates is designed to be stacked together, so you never have to worry about weird flavor combinations.

Shark Bite

Get ready to take your taste buds to a tropical paradise with Shark Bite! This flavor is the perfect combination of orange and mango that will leave you feeling refreshed and ready to crush the weights.

Scorpion Venom

According to Seth Feroce, Scorpion Venom tastes like a sweet mixture of berries. This flavor won’t sting your tongue, but it will satisfy your sweet tooth.

Swamp Beast

What do you get when you mix apples and berries together? You get the notorious Swamp Beast! Also known as Seth Feroce’s favorite flavor…


If you’ve ever had one of those red, white, and blue popsicle sticks on a hot summer day, then you know exactly what HWMF tastes like. We’ve combined lime, blue raspberry, and cherry to create a flavor that takes you back to the good ol’ days.

Unicorn Blood

Rest assured that no unicorns were harmed in the making of this flavor. Unicorn Blood is our take on the delicious frozen dessert that is rainbow sherbet. Unicorns are known for their vibrant colors and Unicorn Blood is known for its unique flavor.

Deadlifts & Gummy Bears

If there’s one thing that Seth Feroce likes more than heavy deadlifts, it’s a giant bag of sweet gummy bears. Instead of ruining his physique, he decided to make a flavor that would crush his cravings for those delicious gummy snacks. Deadlifts & Gummy Bears are sweet, fruity, and just right for a heavy training session.

Strawberry Lemonade

When life gives Seth Feroce lemons, he takes them and makes Strawberry Lemonade Hydraulic. Lemonade is great on its own, but when you combine it with a sweet mixture of strawberries, it takes things to another level.

Ingredient Breakdown

AgmaMax™ (Agmatine Sulfate)

Agmatine sulfate (as AgmaMax™) improves muscular pumps through the inhibition of arginase, an enzyme that breaks down nitric oxide, and the activation of nitric oxide synthase. AgmaMax also boosts focus by acting as a neurotransmitter and neuromodulator. AgmaMax was developed by Vitajoy USA.

AgmaMax™ may:

  • Increase energy and focus
  • Improve stress management and mental health
  • Promote healthy insulin sensitivity
  • Enhance body composition

Creatine MagnaPower® (Magnesium Creatine Chelate)

Creatine MagnaPower® consists of creatine bound to magnesium, which allows for superior absorption and bioavailability. Creatine MagnaPower was developed by Albion Human Nutrition.

Creatine MagnaPower® may:

  • Improve the body's capacity to make ATP (the energy currency of the cell)
  • Enhance carb digestion
  • Replenish creatine stores
  • Enable the body to keep up higher energy production, resulting in increased performance, endurance, and anabolism

GlycerSize™ (65% Glycerol Powder)

GlycerSize™ is a stable form of glycerol that helps draw water into muscle cells without clumping up the powder. GlycerSize™ is a great addition to Hydraulic to round out the formula and create a more stable pump that lasts throughout your training sessions. GlycerSize™ was developed by Pinnacle Ingredients.

GlycerSize™ assists with:

  • Hydration
  • Muscular pumps
  • Performance

Nitrosigine® (Inositol Stabilized Arginine Silicate)

Nitrosigine®, also known as inositol-stabilized arginine silicate (ASI), is a patented complex of bonded arginine, silicate, and inositol. Simply put, Nitrosigine® is a more bioavailable form of arginine that significantly raises nitric oxide production. Nitrosigine® was developed by Nutrition21.

Nitrosigine® may:

  • Increase muscular pumps and performance
  • Enhance focus and cognitive flexibility
  • Promote recovery by reducing inflammation and muscular damage

CarnoSyn® Beta Alanine

CarnoSyn® beta-alanine is a naturally occurring amino acid that supports the synthesis of carnosine in skeletal muscle. Carnosine is a dipeptide molecule that acts as a buffer against lactic acid and delays the onset of muscle fatigue. CarnoSyn® was developed by Natural Alternatives International.

CarnoSyn® beta-alanine may:

  • Extend endurance
  • Boost recovery
  • Increase strength
  • Sharpen mental focus
  • Enhance peak performance


L-citrulline is an amino acid that increases plasma arginine levels, resulting in enhanced nitric oxide production. In fact, L-citrulline has been shown to be more effective at raising arginine levels than arginine itself! L-citrulline and Nitrosigine work synergistically to expand the diameter of your blood vessels, resulting in more blood flow to be delivered to the working muscles.

L-citrulline may:

  • Boost muscular pumps
  • Enhance performance
  • Reduce soreness

L-Tyrosine & N-Acetyl-L-Tyrosine

Hydraulic uses a combination of L-tyrosine and N-acetyl-L-tyrosine (NALT) to give you laser focus. Tyrosine is a semi-essential amino acid that acts as a direct precursor to several catecholamine neurotransmitters, including dopamine, norepinephrine, and epinephrine.

Tyrosine may improve:

  • Adaptation to stress
  • Mental focus, energy, and clarity
  • Mind-to-muscle-connection
  • Physical and cognitive performance

B Vitamins

Not only does Hydraulic have ingredients that help you focus, perform, and get a nasty pump, but it also has high amounts of B vitamins to increase energy levels through boosting metabolism. B vitamins are water-soluble and play an important role in a number of bodily functions.

Each serving of Hydraulic has:

  • Niacin (B3)
  • Vitamin B6
  • Vitamin B12
