Axe & Sledge Ignition Switch

Stimulant-Based Pre-Workout

When it’s time to flip the switch, you can count on Ignition Switch from Axe & Sledge to deliver! Ignition Switch is our stimulant-based pre-workout that was formulated for the hardest workers in the gym.

Ignition Switch is one of the few pre-workouts that contains four patented ingredients:

  • TeaCrine® (Theacrine)
  • Infinergy™(Dicaffeine malate)
  • CarnoSyn® (Beta-alanine)
  • AgmaMax™ (Agmatine sulfate)

Ignition Switch was specifically designed to:

  • Boost exercise performance
  • Enhance mental and physical energy levels
  • Heighten focus
  • Promote muscular pumps
  • Improve the mind-to-muscle connection
  • Aid recovery

With a combination of caffeine anhydrous, Infinergy™ (dicaffeine malate), TeaCrine®, and five B vitamins, Ignition Switch provides you with sustained energy levels that last hours after you’re finished training. Unlike other stimulant-based pre-workouts, Ignition Switch won’t cause the dreaded energy crash, so you can carry on throughout your day at full speed.

Ignition Switch uses L-citrulline, AgmaMax™, and beet juice powder to increase nitric oxide levels, which causes vasodilation (expansion) of your blood vessels. This allows for more blood, nutrients, and oxygen to be delivered to your muscles, creating better pumps and endurance.

Moreover, Ignition Switch contains CarnoSyn® beta-alanine, which boosts carnosine levels in skeletal muscle. Carnosine is a lactic acid buffer that improves the body’s ability to regenerate energy in the form of adenosine triphosphate (ATP). Lastly, Ignition Switch contains huperzine A and choline bitartrate to significantly improve focus and mind-to-muscle connection.

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.

ICEE® Blue Raspberry & Cherry

Axe & Sledge has officially partnered with The ICEE® Company to bring our hard-working customers two nostalgic flavors that bring you back to your childhood. Ignition Switch is now available in the signature ICEE® Blue Raspberry and ICEE® Cherry. Trust us, they taste just like the real thing, but without any sugar or calories!

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.

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.

Watermelon Lemonade

When life gives Seth Feroce lemons, he takes them and makes a refreshing flavor for Ignition Switch! Lemonade is great on its own, but when you combine it with a sweet mixture of watermelon, it takes things to another level.

Ingredient Breakdown

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

AgmaMax™ (Agmatine Sulfate)

Agmatine sulfate (as AgmaMax™) improves muscular pumps through the inhibition of arginase and the activation of nitric oxide synthase. Moreover, AgmaMax 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

Infinergy™ (Dicaffeine Malate)

Dicaffeine malate (as Infinergy™) is composed of two caffeine molecules bound with malic acid. Due to Infinergy’s chemical composition, it takes the body longer to break down, leaving you with sustained and long-lasting energy. Infinergy™ was developed by Creative Compounds.

Infinergy™ may:

  • Optimize energy levels
  • Promote mental focus and clarity
  • Stimulate thermogenesis

TeaCrine® (Theacrine 40%)

TeaCrine® is a non-stimulant patented compound that increases energy, mood, and focus. All without the unwanted side effects caused by other stimulants, such as irritability, jitters, increased heart rate, or blood pressure. TeaCrine® carries out its effects by boosting dopamine levels and inhibiting adenosine. TeaCrine® was developed by Compound Solutions.

TeaCrine® may increase:

  • Endurance
  • Mood
  • Energy
  • Focus
  • Cognition


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 expands the diameter of your blood vessels, resulting in more blood, nutrients, and oxygen being shuttled to the working muscles.

L-citrulline may:

  • Boost muscular pumps
  • Enhance performance
  • Reduce soreness

Beet Juice Powder

Beet juice powder is naturally rich in inorganic nitrates, also referred to as NO3-. Inorganic nitrates are readily converted to nitric oxide in the body. Nitric oxide is a neurotransmitter that causes vasodilation (expansion) of your blood vessels. This enables blood, nutrients, and oxygen to be transported to the working muscles more efficiently.

Beet juice powder may:

  • Improve blood flow
  • Increase muscular pumps
  • Promote recovery
  • Boost performance

Caffeine Anhydrous

Caffeine anhydrous is the most widely used and researched ingredient in sports nutrition. It’s been proven time and again to be effective and safe. Every serving of Ignition Switch contains 150 milligrams of caffeine anhydrous per serving. Caffeine is a powerful stimulant that quickly raises energy levels by inhibiting adenosine and phosphodiesterase.

Caffeine anhydrous may:

  • Increase mental and physical energy
  • Enhance metabolism and lipolysis
  • Boost focus and cognition
  • Reduce pain perception
  • Improve performance and lean body mass

Choline Bitartrate

Choline bitartrate supplies the body with choline, an essential nutrient that’s responsible for a number of physiological processes. In regards to exercise, choline is most notably used for the production of acetylcholine. Acetylcholine is a neurotransmitter that’s essential for carrying out muscle contractions. Choline bitartrate is composed of choline bound to two tartaric acids, which improves absorption, bioavailability, and effectiveness.

Choline bitartrate may:

  • Enhance focus
  • Improve mind-to-muscle connection
  • Increase mental and physical performance
  • Boost cognition

Toothed Clubmoss (Huperzia Serrata) (Huperzine A)

Toothed clubmoss, more commonly known as Huperzia Serrata, is a plant that’s rich in the alkaloid Huperzine A. Toothed clubmoss is capable of sustaining acetylcholine levels through inhibiting an enzyme called acetylcholinesterase, which is responsible for breaking down acetylcholine. We included toothed clubmoss in Ignition Switch to work synergistically with choline bitrate to not only elevate acetylcholine levels but sustain them throughout the entire workout.

Toothed clubmoss may:

  • Boost focus
  • Increase mind-to-muscle connection
  • Improve performance
  • Decrease inflammation

B Vitamins

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

Ignition Switch contains:

  • Thiamin (B1)
  • Riboflavin (B2)
  • Niacin (B3)
  • Vitamin B6
  • Vitamin B12
