A Reverse Hyperextension Machine That Goes Beyond Rehab
Manufactured and fully assembled in Columbus, Ohio with US steel, the Rogue RH-2 is a reverse hyper machine designed to meet the unique, changing needs of the athletes it serves. Widely utilized for physical therapy and back rehab exercises, the Reverse Hyper can also be used with light weights in everyday training to reduce lower back tightness and strengthen hamstrings, glutes, hips, and more.
Along with this freestanding version, Rogue also offers two rack-mounted Reverse Hypers:
3x3” RH-2M Rogue Hyper
The Z Hyper, an adaptation of the RH-2 with a bolt-together design, 3x3” 11-gauge steel construction, and adjustable handles, is also available.
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.
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.
The RH-2 is manufactured in the USA with US steel, 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.
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 700LB 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.
Not only is the RH-2 delivered fully assembled, it also comes standard with OSO Mighty Axle 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.
Ordering from Rogue ensures fast, professional, secure delivery of your Reverse Hyper from our Columbus, OH, warehouse. The package ships freight, fully assembled and bolted to a skid (total weight: approx. 206LB), with online tracking available via the Rogue Shipping System.
