Westside Barbell Bent pendulum Reverse Hyper #3211
The top-of-the-line when it comes to the extensive Westside Barbell suite of unique Reverse Hypers. Even though the sound mechanics of the Reverse Hyper have been good enough to rehabilitate Louie's broken back and provide improved posterior chain strength in athletes and power lifters around the world through years of service, Louie still found room to improve the venerable Reverse Hyper concept. By bending the weighted pendulum rearward, Louie sought to provide more eccentric momentum on the return stroke, providing a greater stretching effect for the lower back, glutes and hamstrings of the user. This emphasizes the rehabilitative properties of the Reverse Hypers by allowing more stretching of the posterior chain muscles and more lubrication of the lumbar discs than ever before.
Since the center of gravity was extended behind the machine, a clever mechanism was devised by our equipment designer, wherein the user grasps a second set of handles to move a stopper into place underneath the padded platform to catch the pendulum and hold it in a position to facilitate ingress/egress from the machine.
The chassis and the tilting platform are the same as on the former top-of-the-line Reverse Hyper, the 3234 Tilt Reverse Hyper
, so the user gets the benefit of being able to address the posterior chain group of muscles at different angles, placing emphasis in specific areas for precisely targeted strength/rehab benefits.
Legend Fitness is the exclusive manufacturer of all Westside Barbell products, including the entire Reverse Hyper lineup.
A warning from Louie about possible imitators:
"There is only one Reverse Hyper™ and it has 3 U.S. Patents. Westside
Barbell™ Reverse Hyper line allows the user to determine the path of
the exercise. Westside Barbell Reverse Hypers™ offer one of two
functional action systems. One is a strap; the other is a revolving
roller system. Both Westside inventions allow the user to define his/her
Inferior copies of the Reverse Hypers™ have gained access to the
market. These copied units contain a fixed roller or pad, which
restricts the user, and forces a pre-determined path set forth by the
machine structure, whether it is biomechanically correct or not.
We are talking about a very sensitive area of the body here. We
cannot expect a locked-up mechanism to allow proper movement from one
user to another; from a 6'8″ person to a 5'2" person. Westside Reverse
Hypers™ not only take this problem area into consideration, they
completely adapt to each individual's needs and requirements, regardless
of body size and type.
All other models are trademark or patent infringers, a very serious crime."
