Not a week after putting a Hyperextension on my wish list, this little item pops up for $350 on Craigslist. This is retail pricing, but I do save shipping. I have to imagine shipping is at least $100. It is in Aurora at I-70 and I-225. It is also out of stock at Rogue Fitness.
This is an item that I did not use often even when I had access to one at Crossfit Golden. It was however essential when I was rehabbing my back. Per Mat Frazer's home gym review, he feels that a Hyperextension is essential for him.
The nice thing about this design is that it folds up to a pretty small footprint. It also requires a large amount of space to use it.
At the fair price point, I think I would still prefer to have a Crossover Symmetry set.
I talked myself down from the ledge and will not be buying any more gym equipment.
It is actually a bit of a relief and disconcerting at the same time. I am going to have a lot more free time as everything I used to browse for, I have purchased. I will still likely continue to check out Craigslist and Facebook Marketplace for interesting, unique and vintage items. I will be bargain hunting and not paying full retail for anything. In all likelihood, I will not be willing to drive all over the Denver Metro area to acquire the goods in question.
I still want a storage solution and am resigned to wait on Rep Fitness to have their system in stock. If I find a 43" Rogue 3 Tier System, I will buy that as well.
