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.

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.

Westside Scout Hyper is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 123.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolute MUST for a Home Gym! I've only had it for a few days, yet I can confidently say this was one of the best purchases for my home gym. I've had the lower back back/tightness/discomfort come and go during my training life, particularly from squatting and deadlifting which are curial in my training at home with limited equipment/machines. I've always been looking for ways to train the posterior chain without a barbell and without putting extra stress on the lumber spine. The Scout Hyper has now allowed me to do just that, while relieving my niggles. One session with virtually no weight on the swing arm was all it took for me to realise the value of this purchase. After that session, I felt a tremendous pump in the lower back muscles yet the entire area felt very loose and limber with no aches or pains. With more practise I've been able to engage my hamstrings and glutes more, the key to this was bringing the hips off the pad more. The traction of the spine continues to feel fantastic and provide me with relief, since the first session I have felt absolutely no lower back pain/tightness/discomfort. The rest of my training has remained the same, with only 3 sets of 10 reps on the scout hyper added. The actual machine itself is great. Assembly was a breeze and the quality of the finishes is high on paint and welds, as well as the upholstery and nylon strap. During use, it feels extremely solid with no movement at any point. That said, I've barely had any weight on the swing arm, still confident it will be fine with correct use. It's relatively easy to move around and storage is a breeze due to the foldable design. Thanks to Louie and Rogue for putting out such a fantastic piece, I couldn't be happier. I highly recommend it to home gym owners everywhere.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for home gym Good piece of equipment to meet its purpose. However, if the padding was a little bit thicker, it would of been 5 star.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love my Westside Scout Hyper I have had this for a few months now and it is great. Fits and looks great in my garage gym. I have incorporated it into my workouts and also my young athlete kids and my wife's. We have all seen and felt results. Love Louie Simmons. So glad that Rogue and him partnered to create a quality device that is also affordable for the home gym.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great injury prevention/rehab machine Great machine. It’s helping fix my disc bulge injury. Only complaint is that it is an expensive machine for only having the 1 feature.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I was having constant lower back pain throughout the day, after using it in 1 training session. I had substantial relief and improvement. Been using it regularly ever since with no pain now. Super easy to fold up and open up space if you don’t have a ton of room. Absolutely love the reverse hyper. No regrets in this purchase.
