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 5 out of 5 by from Excellent I couldn’t be happier with rogues equipment. My first purchase was the Thompson fat pad, what a great bench!!! Worth its weight in gold. Ive known about the the reverse hyper after I heard Louie Simmons on Joe Rohan’s podcast a while back as he explains why it was made as he went through bad low back injuries. I was so relieved when I saw rogue carried a folding version to help with the massive footprint of the other units. Similar to Louie I’ve also suffered some bulging discs in my L5/S1 which has left me going to physio therapy for over 2 years now, two hours a week. I’ve had some improvements but only sitting around maybee 40- 50% strength. I’ve only had the unit for about a week now and am starting slow. I can tell that the movement are going to be excellent for my low back injuries and surrounding muscles which were also damaged. The unit itself is very well made (classic rogue). Forget some reviews (YouTube) that say it’s not stable. It certainly is, at 6”3 240lbs I have yet to feel unstable while using the unit. Only issue I have is that it’s sold from the states and shipping is a lot for their other (larger, heavier) products. Sometimes 50% of the equipment cost. Rogue also covers the duty so take the good with the bad. what can I say, rogue has me hooked on their stuff. Hats off to the crew at rogue for continuing to provide excellent quality products. Job well done.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just like I remember! I think this took less than 48 hours from the time I ordered to receive it. I was super surprised when my wife said another large package had been delivered. UPS guy is getting mad I think. Anyways this thing is a beast. Feels strong. Threw a few 10s on to get back into it. Been about two years since I've used one. The unit is very tall. I don't think I'll even fold it up but that's a nice feature if needed. Perfect compliment to my carefully configured home gym! Here's a photo next to a standard sized file cabinet. Overall about a half hour start to finish getting it setup. That includes getting the beefy box opened and sorted. Comes with tools to build it. Add the legs and boom, done! Oh yeah I just put the strap rings around the plate loading area then put the plates on like old school. No rubbing as mentioned in other reviews.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I’m 5’7” and I need the Hyper Extension Handle Kit Well built, easy to assemble, store and move! For the price it is a no brainer and a must for all home gyms. Unfortunately, I’ve had it for a few months and only use it here and there because the they way it’s built, the handles are too low for me. I’m still waiting for them to restock the handle extension but I know I will love and use it several times a week once I do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just set it up Been waiting on this thing 4 months probably to re-stock. Immediately ordered it last week, got it today. I think 5 biz days? Set up in less than 30, jumped on n did a few sets of 25 reps, hitting the hammies glutes n low back exactly like the gym quality reverse hypers. I’m single so this is going in my dining room for a few sets as soon as I get out of bed n probably after each workout. Love these babies

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally back in stock! Ordered this past Wed and received it on Friday! Very well packed...took a few minutes to set up and must say it is pretty beefy for a portable unit! Very sturdy and well padded!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great garage gym addition I have been using the Scout Hyper for about 8 weeks and I can already tell my back pain and feeling of instability are improving. It is easy to set up and break down, even at 5AM. My only gripe is the weight posts are not standard barbell sleeve size, so you have to use the included spring clamps, which are a pain compared to a nice ratchet collar.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good to have at home or in a smaller gym I got this reverse hyper due to only having a small space in my basement for my home gym. This is definitely nice to have but get a full sized reverse hyper if you have the space and money. The pros: allows you to have a reverse hyper at home, folds away and is still fairly compact when set up. The cons: not very stable with heavier loads, limited space to load up plates. I usually have 180lbs on it and put two 45lbs plates on each handle to stabilize it. The front feet still come off the ground a little bit doing that but it isn't too bad. For reference I am 5'10'' 220lbs.
