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.

I swear by this
I am a doctor. I have had two microdiscectomies at different levels that needed done or I would have lost the use of the limb. I use decompression therapy regularly at work but since having the last surgery and doing the rehab a couple years ago I have had chronic pain and inflammation in the low back. After purchasing this a couple months ago I set it up in my basement and have used it every day before going to work and again in the evening. I have had no pain throughout the day and have steadily increased the weight I use on it. If you’re on the fence on buying it for low back pain just think of all the dumb things you bought trying to help it that didn’t. At least someone will want to but this off you if you don’t like it. FYI: The extension handles are for short people. My seven year old can do it with them. You may want to put a guideline on the website so people can figure out if they need them or not.

Can’t use it
Without a doubt this piece is built solid, so I could wish I could use it. I am 5’ 6” and it is just too big for my frame. To lay over the top hurts my abdomen and my legs aren’t long enough to really get good use out of the strap. I wish I could return it for a refund. Even at a discount. Because it is totally useless to me.

Great for my bad back
It came packed very well. Assembly was a breeze and was able to get it put together by myself with zero issues. I ordered the extra handles and they work great as my wife if much shorter than I am and we both can use the machine comfortably. We both have lower back issues and use a very similar type machine at our Chiro. Been using this for about a month and a half now. My lower trunk(back, lower abdomen, sides) is getting much stronger. We started with body weight and have worked our way up to 37.5lbs. It really is helping me get stronger and stretch the areas that need it.

Fixed my back
In 2021 I was hospitalized for about a week due to Covid. After I was released I could not stand straight or walk on my own. It cause severe inflammation in my lower back. I was off work for 3 months and tried all sorts of rehab, when a buddy told me about this and how it helped Mr. Simmons, I figured I should try it. After one week I was standing tall and walking without a cane! Thank you I use it daily and highly recommend!!!!
