Before we dive any deeper into this article, it’s important to note that any pre-workout, regardless of where it’s from or what it’s formulated to do, won’t work optimally unless your nutrition, sleep, and hydration levels are dialed in.

So if you’re lacking in any of the components listed above, focus on improving those first before buying a bunch of supplements.

With that said, let’s get into the product comparison and we are going to start with an overview of each product!

Product Overview


Although many refer to Hydraulic as a “pump product'', it’s a lot more than just that!

Hydraulic is a powdered-based comprehensive stimulant-free pre-workout. In other words, Hydraulic has everything that a typical pre-workout contains without the stimulants. So you can take it any time of the day and still reap all of the benefits that a pre-workout has to offer.

Hydraulic was formulated to increase performance by boosting muscular endurance, strength, focus, power, and energy, in addition to giving you nasty pumps!

Some of the key ingredients found in Hydraulic include, Citrulline, CarnoSyn® Beta-alanine, Creatine MagnaPower®, HydroMax®, AgmaMax®, and Nitrosigine®.

Hydraulic is best suited for those who are sensitive to stimulants, train later in the day, or are more focused on building muscle.

Now that you know what Hydraulic is, let’s move onto PUMPIES!


Imagine taking the pump out of Hydraulic and putting it into a convenient capsule, well that’s exactly what you get with PUMPIES!

PUMPIES is a capsule-based nitric oxide booster that’s formulated to increase pumps, performance, and recovery by increasing blood flow, nutrient, and oxygen delivery to the working muscles.

Some key ingredients in PUMPIES include Nitrosigine®, VasoDrive-AP®, Vitamin C, Pine Bark Extract, and Epicatechin.
