Product Description

"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

PATENTED FOLDABLE DESIGN
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
2

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
3

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.

Face Flushing
Its a quality piece of equipment and I like to support Louie Simmons who had a gym by the town I grew up near Venice Ca so glad to support. I am 6'2 and a little heavy in the mid section, have had 2 successful back surgeries and bought this reverse hyper to develop like the machine says " reverse strength" I have not graduated to using weights on the bar yet as just the mechanics of the machine are enough movement. (I am 63) One condition is that while positioned on the seat, hands held on to bars, I feel like all the blood rushes to my head and I flush out and get a headache while in use. I had watched the you tube videos and it looks much easier than I have experienced. This machine is easy to move around so I am taking it over to my local boot camp and putting it to the real test with others. Thanks Louie for the effort you put into the design.

Love it
The reverse hyper is great. It arrived very well packaged. Went together quickly and easily. Even the required tools were included with the hardware. The machine is easy to use and can be folded up and put out of the way. I also use the machine for single leg extensions by sitting up on top of the machine. I have not had trouble with the front legs lifting off the ground, but if I do I will put a sandbag on the front leg cross beam. If that doesn’t work I may weld round stock onto the front leg to hang weight plates on.

Westside Hyper is a wonderful addition to home gym
We purchased this based on a recommendation from other wrestlers. This was very quick and easy to assemble. Folds up nicely to sit against a wall when being unused. This is great for the entire backside. We would recommend it to anyone with lower back pain or looking to strengthen glutes/hams.

Great Product
I’ve been using this for about 14 months now. I’m in my early 40s and I’ve had lower back issues since my ears 20s. In combination with yoga, this has definitely helped, and I now have the best back that I’ve had in many years. I use it 2-3x/week, and always after deadlifts or if my lower back gets tweaked by something. It does take a bit of practice to learn to use it, and proper form is crucial. Start light. My only suggestion would be to make the bar slightly longer to fit more plates.

Pretty good, but don’t loose spring clips
Pretty good reverse hyper and you could even say it’s a poor man’s hyper. My only gripe is the collars are not standard. It doesn’t matter what type of replacement, spring or compression, rogue or made in china, they won’t fit and will slip off. Not sure why but it’s the only downside I’ve found so far.

Not ergonomic for me.
Well made but poorly designed. I am 6 foot tall and this machine is too high for me. The handles are also too low, placed too close together, and too far away to comfortably reach. I have used the RH-2 reverse hyper at my gym and it is very nice, but this one is painful to get on and use. Also, once you assemble it, they will NOT accept a return.
