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.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from great build, but with a few design flaws The Westside scout Hyper arrive well packaged no damage from UPS. The device itself is solid and the assembly take about 30mins, which consists of putting the legs on with a few screws. I though the folding mechanism is cleaver, but the overall reverse hyper has a few design flaws in my opinion. While folding and unfolding is easy, to unfold the device you need to pull on the handles and separate the legs, this means you cant really store if flush against the wall and expect the rapid deployment. You have to most likely pull it away from the wall and then probably turn it around so you have space to actually kick back on the reverse hyper. There are no wheels on this device, its about 100lbs shipped and while its not that heavy it can be cumbersome to move. Rouge should have drilled a few pilot holes in the legs that would allow casters to be installed for easy movement. Additionally the pendulum of the reverse hyper isn't smooth with light weight, I wish there were ball bearings in the joint that allowed for fluid movement; instead the pendulum seems to be a metal tube that is screwed into the frame which causes the arm to stick. My last complaint is with the degree of articulation of the pendulum. The Pendulum arm isn't built to surpass a perpendicular plane with the body mat. I found that unfortunate because there are often times were I was seeking just an extra 15-30 degrees on articulation when really contracting my posterior chair. I will keep this device because its too much of a hassle to send back to rogue, but I just wanted to share my thought on the device for anyone interested in purchasing. I do own a GDH, you would probably be okay just using a GHD backwards with resistance bands to get the same effect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rev Hyper Scout This item is great. It’s the best bang for your buck. The foldable option is nice although I use mine all the time and leave it up.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it It's an awesome reverse hyper. I'm 6'1", 240 lbs and have had 0 problems with it till now. It's super sturdy except some occasional rocking which causes 0 problems in practice. Very happy with the purchase

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent alternative to full-size reverse hyper Was shipped and delivered within days of purchase. Packaging was very good, no issues. Some bolts/nuts/washers to put it together, took under an hour by myself. Feels very sturdy. I currently have metal 35lb plates on it and there are no issues with the feet raising, or the plates getting close to my shins as some have mentioned with 45 lb plates. Overall I am very happy and satisfied with the Westside Scout Hyper.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Folds up compact but weights hit your legs. Folds up easily and compact which is obviously the reason to get this. Bumper plates hit your legs at the top and bottom of the movement if you aren’t careful however. I guess because it’s shorter than a normal reverse hyper? Can’t fit much weight on the pegs either. Could also use more padding up top.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A valuable resource for your training!!! This is a valuable resource if you want to enhance your strength while reinforcing your posterior chain. Some may complain that you can't load it too heavy or have someone that weighs upwards of 300lbs due to the front legs lifting off the ground. Well I have had someone who was that size and no issue. Primarily because I tied down the front legs to my squat rack with heavy resistance bands.
