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, doing so against a wall and out of the reach of children.

KEY FEATURES OF THE SCOUT HYPER

Loading
1

PATENTED 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.

UNIQUE 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.”

ASSEMBLY & 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.

Awesome piece that’s perfect for the home gym
The Good: I purchased this a few weeks ago and have been very impressed so far. It’s surprisingly stable (could be partially due to me weighing it down at 275lbs), and the ease of use and space savings are hard to beat. It’s also very smooth, and is still comfortable for me to use at 6’1”. Overall very happy with this piece and definitely would buy it again. Feedback: As I’m sure others have mentioned, I wish there was a bit more space for weight. I’m sure this is due to space limitations and stability, but it would be nice to be able to load this up a bit heavier. That being said, I do use Rogue’s deep dish plates, so going with something more compact like a traditional iron plate or competition plates would surely alleviate this issue. My major complaint is the lack of protection for weights where you load them on. Having not realized this, I put my plates on and started using the scout hyper as usual. Upon taking my plates off, I noticed some wear/scuffs along the rear of the lates, and the lips. This is caused by the plates rubbing on lever arm and wears away the finish. While I understand this in no way impairs the use of my plates, it’s still a bit of a bummer having paid over $1200 or so for my set. This is easily fixed by putting a rubber grommet/spacer on the arms to create space between the plates and the arm. But again the trade off is that you sacrifice more of that valuable space on the loading area which is already small as is. I’ve attached photos showing what I’m talking about and how I fixed it. Final thoughts: If you own a home gym or work out in a small space and want a reverse hyper to incorporate into your training, this is an excellent option. But if you’re loading over 3-4 plates (45’s) per side and are worried about stability at higher weights, a stand-alone non-foldable hyper would be a better option.

Louis parting gift
I have used the floor models for decades, but they are large and take up a lot of space, not to mention expensive for the working class lifter. Louis realized this and made a model for the everyman. Now everyone can enjoy the benefits and also save much floor space. Quality is excellent, very rugged and well constructed, fit and finish is great and I was a precision machinist for over a decade. Couldn’t be more impressed! Thanks Louis, your teachings and philosophies will never die. Great job in this product Rogue!

Couldn't be happier
I have a herniated disc in my l4-l5 and this has seriously changed my life. If I throw my back out it normally takes me months to get back on track and to get out of the pain. I use this machine every single day and I am clear of pain, I can tell I'm strengthening that area in such a different way then I ever have. I am so grateful for this machine. Worth every penny to see such an extreme difference. It is really well made and my husband put it together.

Simple and effective
Arrived to my house in 1.5 days. Easy assembly. My home gym isn’t that big, so stays folded up when not in use. Easy to fold/unfold.

Fully functional in a space saving design.
Perfect HPND for a serious home gym. Works perfectly mechanically as a fully functioning HPND machine and then folds up for storage. Given the reasonable cost, great mechanical funcrioning as weight equipment, and space saving design, we could not be happier.
