Reverse Hyperextension

As much as I have been trying to avoid it, I was "forced" to buy a reverse hyper.  I tweaked my back on Saturday and have been trying everything to loosen it up.  Finally, I started searching for reverse hypers on Monday.  I found a combination Titan Fitness Glute & Hamstring H-PND Combo for $425 (retail $740) and passed as it just seemed too big and most criticism is that combination devices do neither well.

Today I used the search term back hyper and back extension in Craigslist and found a Titan Fitness Economy H-PND listed for $275.  The listing had been up for 22 days and I reached out to the seller.  Taking a look, it was in perfect condition and she was willing to take $250.  I guess it had been used more by her ex than it was by her.  She was kind enough to let me test and hang out in her garage for 20 minutes disassembling it.  Getting it home, it took me about 30 minutes to put it back together and it absolutely did not disappoint.

I still do not like how big it is, but my back does feel better even after a short session of 3x12x70#.

She had already sold an exercise bike and was keeping a squat rack, bumper plates, dumbbell set and bench.

Reviewing my Facebook Marketplace saved items, I found these same units selling for $300 and $350 over the past 6 months.  Westside Scout Hypers have been selling for $400+.
