Westside Scout Hyper
Folding Reverse Hyper Machine

"I do hypers before and after I squat or deadlift." - Louie Simmons

The Scout Hyper is a patented, foldable reverse-hyper machine developed by powerlifting legend Louie Simmons and Westside Barbell. This uniquely lightweight and mobile design features hinging legs that lock into place with pop pins and easily fold back for efficient storage after use (the total depth of the unit, when folded, is just 13”).

Louie Simmons created this model with home, work, and light clinical use in mind—with particular benefits for younger athletes or those new to reverse hyper training. The unit comes standard with a durable, round-edge pad (27.5” wide x 21.5” deep x 2” thick) to limit friction against the hips, as well as a nylon webbing hyper strap, two weight posts (5.25” loadable length), a set of spring collars, and 6” long handles. A bolt-on handle extension kit is also available a la carte for users who need to accommodate a shorter distance from the end of the pad to the handles.

The Scout Hyper comes with rubber feet (to provide grip to the floor and help keep the unit level) and a rubber-covered step for safe mounting and dismounting. When a workout is complete, the user simply has to (1) pull out and spin the pop pins to unlock the unit, (2) tip the machine up while pushing on the horizontal rear leg crossmember, and (3) press down on the handles to complete the folding process. Please Note: The unit stands up by itself when folded, but we do recommend either storing it flat on the ground or, if storing it upright, to do so against a wall and out of the reach of children.

Key Features of the Scout Hyper

  • 1Patented Foldable Design

    Whether you train in a small garage gym or a large-scale facility, space efficiency always counts. The Westside Scout Hyper offers storage convenience with its patented groove folding mechanism, collapsing down to a depth of just 13” when stowed. It’s also considerably lighter and more portable than most traditional Reverse Hyper machines, making it easy to move, unfold, and lock-in before each use.

  • 2Unique Training Benefits

    Regular use of the Scout Hyper can provide safe traction, pressure/tension relief in the lower back, and strengthening of the posterior chain. “We spend hours sitting or standing at home, work or at school,” Louie Simmons says. “These simple yet everyday occurrences place significant pressure and torsion on our lumbar spine leading to mild or even severe daily discomfort. That's where the Scout steps in. A daily prescription of three to five sets of 15 reps on this machine could be the difference from painful to pain-free lumbar health.”

  • 3Assembly & Safety

    User assembly is required with this unit, but should take less than 30 mins. All required hardware is included. Rubber feet are provided for improved stability, and a rubber covering on the step makes it easier to get on and off of the machine. Please BE CAUTIOUS when folding and unfolding the Scout, and be aware of pinch points. If the red marking on the pop pin shaft is visible then the pin is NOT fully seated. Periodically check that the pop pin and swing-arm bolts are tight on both sides of the machine, as well as the bolt that secures the hyper strap.

Westside Scout Hyper is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 19.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for a compact home gym I recently had to downsize my home power gym from 250 sq ft to 65 sq feet. This meant every piece of equipment must have multiple uses and/or have a small profile when not is use. The scout hyper meets and exceeded my expectations! It can be used for hamstring curls, leg extensions , and hyper extensions. and most importantly it has a small footprint when not in use. This is a winner!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing I herniated my S1,l5,l4 three years ago. I did everything my PT and Chiro told me and I was still in pain and could only do a body weight squat on a good day. We have only had this machine for a month now, but I wake up in the morning in no pain and I can move better. This machine is the only thing that’s given me hope that I can return to training and squaring heavy weight.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Affordable, practical...a must have for home gyms! Had been waiting for this to restock and immediately purchased upon it once again being available...arrived quicker than expected and was easy to set up and start using. Quality has exceeded my expectations, especially for the price point. Easy to fold up and move around for those who have a limited amount of space. Is sturdy and the padding is comfy. Own 100lbs plates but was also as a test, able to fit four of the interlocking style standard 45s on the pegs and still had enough room to secure with clips (have seen some reviews saying peg space was a problem but I feel that would only be for those with strictly bumper plates or thicker deep dish style) Has been a pleasure to add it to my home gym, thankful that Louie and Rogue collaborated to make an affordable, portable and compact reverse hyper for us to enjoy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is awesome! Exceeded all expectations Was skeptical at first as I thought I didn’t really need it but now that I have it it’s essential. Really has made my back feel better and my squats and deadlifts have benefited 5⭐️

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Would recommend! I suffer from what I suspect is a compressed lumber. Since using this I noticed a difference immediately and have been waking up with less back pain than normal. As a casual lifter I may not experience the full effect of what this machine can offer, but it was already worth the purchase for me. The foldable design is great and takes up much less space in my home gym. It still takes up a fairly good amount of space when fully extended. For those experience any rocking, please make sure it is fully secure as the hinge may not immediately catch when extending.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm now a believer Bought this kind of on a whim, having never used one before, figuring I could easily resell if I didn't get much out of it. So glad I did, and I now understand why the reverse hyper has such a passionate following. I use it for a few sets of 12-15 reps after each deadlift and squat session and my back feels refreshed. I don't have the room or budget for a full-size unit in my garage gym, but this fits both perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tremendous for Posterior Chain My wife and I ordered our West Side Scout Hyper and received it in about 5 business days. It took about 20 minutes to unbox and assemble solo. Very easy. We both agree that after the first session that the machine works exactly as advertised. It hits the entire posterior chain from the lower back to glutes and calves. It's very sturdy, well built, and the quality is high. We both suffer from lower back issues and this machine has been a life saver. 10/10 would recommend.
