What Sets the RH-2 Apart:

  • 1Strength Training

    Rogue’s Reverse Hyper decompresses the spine without enacting any vertical compression on it, allowing for dynamic strength development in the concentric phase. The spine is gently stretched and depressurized during the process, creating—in essence—an internal pumping mechanism, filling the spinal column with spinal fluid and the lower back muscles with blood. By strengthening the lower lumbar, athletes can improve their recovery times and endurance, allowing them to train longer with reduced soreness. RH movements can have similar benefits for the glutes, hamstrings, hips, and more.

  • 2Rehab Training

    Anyone who has injured their back knows that the pressure needs to be relieved and circulation restored to the injured area in order to rehabilitate. The reverse hyperextension machine offers one of the best methods for achieving this. Just as it serves as a dynamic strength developer in the concentric phase, the RH-2 is also an ideal rehabilitation mechanism in the eccentric phase. Some athletes trust the RH-2 as a way to focus on hip extension when rehabbing from a foot, ankle, or knee injury, as well.

  • 3Quality Construction

    The RH-2 is manufactured in the USA, utilizing 2x3” (legs and swing-arm) and 2x2” (base) steel tubing. The legs feature a welded-on step to assist in getting onto the unit, and the 3” thick pad is designed with a cornered style edge, protecting the user’s hips from any contact with hard steel. For the handles, we used 1" solid round steel with 6" long rubber grips and multiple hand-holds to accommodate varying user heights. The entire unit ships fully assembled, complete with a laser-cut Rogue nameplate. All you have to do is bolt on the protective rubber feet, which help prevent floor damage and restrict any movement of the machine during use.

  • 4Takes Any Plates

    The RH-2 is compatible with both bumpers and steel plates at any any increment, including 45LB steel. There is 10.5” of plate loading capacity on each side of the swing arm, enough for over 700 LBS of steel plates. Need a new set of plates to go with your reverse hyper? Check out our Rogue Steel Olympic Plates, or our Hi-Temp or HG 2.0 bumpers.

  • 5Ready Out of the Box

    Not only is the RH-2 delivered fully assembled, it also comes standard with HG Collars and a Spud Inc Hyper Strap, so you can get to work: day one, hour one. Customers have also have the option of adding a compatible roller attachment to their order at an additional cost. The Rogue RH-2 Roller Attachment features a quick release design for easy transitions from the hyper straps to the roller system.

RH-2 Rogue Reverse Hyper is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 14.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great piece of equipment for powerlifting I've had it for 2 weeks and deadlifts and squats are both easier for reps and weight (600lbs). Tip notch solid piece.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST I HAVE FELT SINCE MY BACK SURGERY!!! 2009 Massachusetts State Strongman Championships I had an axle deadlift go wrong and as result herniated my L4 L5 S1 discs ultimately resulting in surgery due to pinched nerves. Since that day and the surgery itself I have battled pain, nerve issues, weakness and instability in my core. 9 years later I purchased the RH2 and my life is changing by the day. No longer am I waking up with sharp pains in my back and hips or numbing in my legs and feet. I can literally feel the muscles in my lower back firing in everyday activities where I went the last 9 years without that wondering if they would ever work properly again. I purchased a GHD from Rogue in the same order and it’s a great piece for its own reasons but I can say in confidence my Reverse Hyper is the single most valuable and essential piece of equipment I own.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from One of the BEST investments I’ve made I purchased the RH-2 primarily for strengthening posterior chain and relieving low back pain. It took two years for me to finally pull the trigger and buy the RH-2, for what it’s done for me I wish I had purchased it before the GHD. Now let me explain, I use both my GHD and RH-2 everyday but the carryover to squat, clean and deadlift, along with decompression of my spine after heavy lifting has come more so from adding the RH-2. I superset Reverse Hypers with KB Swings in my warm up on deadlift days and I cannot tell you difference it’s made in activating my glutes during the DL as well as core stability. The RH-2 is a great product, but a couple issues to look out for. Like several others reviews have said the feet are not level. Not a huge deal or reason to get the RH-Z for an extra $100. After measuring it, there was a 4mm difference, a simple shim does the trick and there’s honestly no issue after that. Next, make sure you add weight slowly when starting out. I definitely tried to add way too much and that backfired the next day. I learned my lesson and started with one 35lb plate and every 4-5 I’ve added 10-15lbs. Benefits I’ve seen so far, I no longer wake up with low back pain in the morning, even after heavy squat, clean or deadlift workouts. My low back is much stronger in the bottom of the squat and my leg drive in deadlift and clean has improved greatly. Everyone might not agree with getting the RH-2 before the GHD, but if you’re reading this review I’m assuming you’re like me and already had a GHD or you’re considered buying a reverse Hyper. For me this piece of equipment has helped me get stronger while eliminating back pack allowing me to lift heavier more often. The reverse hyper is awesome, it came pre assembled minus the rubber feet (Get two socket wrenches you’ll thank me after). And my only complaint was having to use a shim but that’s it, honestly one of the best investments I’ve made.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Key Piece of Equipment We ordered one for our gym as part of the major upgrade to open a new gym where an old one used to be. It's a major attraction and people have joined simply because we have one now. I've stood at the front desk and watched every single person who comes in the door use it. They will be as important as a good leg press in the future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A staple piece of equipment with Rogue quality I've always used a reverse hyper in my training, but when I moved, the gym I currently train at did not have one. So I decided to purchase this a few months ago, and I have absolutely no regrets. The quality is exactly what you'd expect from Rogue - well-made and durable. The pendulum is study, with no lateral slack - I've also loaded this up quite heavy and the pendulum has performed exceptionally well. The grips are thick and don't move. The upholstery is very comfortable, especially with the additional "lip" - I receive no anterior hip pain. The only gripe that I have about this reverse hyper are the feet. After bolting them on, and no matter the efforts, it has a slight wobble to it. As one reviewer mentioned, the holes are so recessed that it makes it near-impossible to make any adjustments to the rubber feet. So we just offset the reverse hyper on some thin rubber mats and that solved the wobble issue. It would still be nice to not have to do that, but that's a minor gripe. Overall, I'd recommend this piece of equipment to anyone. You can't beat the price (other models are well over 1k) for the quality of construction, and the benefits that a reverse hyper adds your training and spinal health. I will add one quick note - do NOT get the roller attachment for this reverse hyper made by Rogue. I'll review it separately on it's respective page.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great except for the feet My wife bought this for me as a gift several years ago, and I've used it regularly ever since. It's a great piece of equipment to have. The pros: great padding / upholstery. The pad has a "lip" to it which makes it much more comfortable than a flat pad alone. Handles are sturdy and well-placed. Arm mechanism is smooth. The cons: (1) The rubber feet. The bolt-holes on mine were so deeply recessed that there wasn't a lot of rubber left between the bolts and the bottom of the machine. Ultimately, I took them off and mounted the entire machine on 2 4x4s, which was much more stable. It would be great if Rogue just made the 4 legs 3.5 inches longer so no feet would be necessary. (2) When I first got my machine, it tended to move during the exercise, and a few times the front feet came off the ground....this may be because I was swinging too hard, but I didn't like it. I fixed it by placing sandbags on the front legs, and putting plate-holders on the back legs. Bolt-on side plate holders would be a great option as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Home gym? Some dis-assembly may be required… As with most (all?) Rogue equipment, the RH-2 is a well made beast. As stated on the Rogue website, the RH-2 is shipped assembled and based on the dimensions I knew I’d have to take it apart to get it into my home basement gym. It was very easy to disassemble. Just take the eight bolts (4 bolts per side) holding the legs to the bench top and it’s manageable to carry the parts. I also took the pad off the top to lighten the load, but this really wasn’t necessary. I wouldn’t mess with dropping the spud from its mounting to the table top, but, be careful picking up the table top and spud assembly, the spud is on bearings and it moves freely if not supported. I moved it by myself and it took me two hours from the time I pulled out the box cutter to final reassembly. It shouldn’t have taken that long, but I took my time and that was start to finish including gathering tools, unwrapping and breaking down the boxes when I was finish. It is shipped freight and the only obligation is to drop it at the curb. It was scheduled to deliver the day before Thanksgiving between 8AM and 7PM and of course it came after 5PM. We had dinner reservations with family so I left my teenage son at home with a hand-truck and told him to roll it down our 100’ driveway and put it in the garage – right. You aren’t moving this beast with a standard hand-truck; fortunately the driver had a fork lift and drove it into the garage. Above and beyond, just wish I was here to tip him. Don’t assume this will always be the case; curb side is the only commitment on delivery. I’m 56 years old, 6’2”and I’ve had issues with back spasms. About 5 years ago I began a regiment of weight training with a focus on strengthening my core. I hadn’t had any issues until this fall and decided it was a good excuse to further expand the home gym. I started looking at roman chairs and GHD’s when I came across the RH. I’d never heard of it before. I did a lot of research before buying it and I love it. I can’t make any claims that it is the end-all, be-all for back issues, but it’s a great piece of equipment and a welcome addition to our gym. The only issue is that my wife is 4’8” and it’s not a good fit for her. She hasn’t given up on it, but I’m not sure she’s going to take to it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great product - still slightly disappointed Great product. Built solid, works flawlessly, and it's a TON cheaper than the Westside versions (and in my opinion, just as high quality). Just as I would expect a Rogue product to be. However, my only two concerns: 1. After numerous different measurements on many different occasions, the machine is slightly tilted to the left (I used a level to check both the ground and the machine itself, and the ground is level). Not a huge concern, and I shoved some cardboard under the feet on the left and it works fine. Not a huge issue, the difference is so small it's hard to measure. 2. Another problem (and my biggest gripe) is that the HG Collars Rogue includes do not work on the plate sleeves. I like to keep my plates towards the outside of the sleeves, so that my legs don't hit them when they are raised, and I keep the collars on the inside of the plates and put a pin through the hole on the outside (from inside to outside, my setup go HG Collar -> Plate -> Pin). When you get in your rhythm on the machine, the plates begin to spin, and they always end up sliding around, regardless of the collars. It's just a bit disappointing that the included collars don't do their job. Rogue, if you're reading this, please include a pair of collars that fit snugly on the sleeves. Your product is everything I could've asked for, but the collars are a minor annoyance I find myself dealing with all the time. The axle collars aren't much more expensive on your website than the HG Collars (I'm not sure if they would be compatible), but as a recent college grad, I don't want to have to buy another pair of collars.
