The newest and biggest addition to Taylor Carpenter Personal Training in 2015 has been the RH-2 Rogue Reverse Hyper. Often used in rehabilitation, injury prevention, and powerlifting.
This will be a nice addition the the Glute Ham Developer and the large variety of deadlifts performed with most clients to work the posterior chain…
Directly from the Rogue website, here is “the science behind the reverse hyperextension machine”:
Rogue’s Reverse Hyper decompresses the spine and has no vertical compression on the spine at all. This simple device allows for dynamic strength development in the concentric phase, while serving as a rehabilitation mechanism in the eccentric phase. The spine is gently stretched and depressurized during the process, creating–in essence–an internal pumping mechanism, filling the spinal column with spinal fluid and the lower back muscles with blood. Anyone who has injured their back knows that the pressure needs to be relieved and circulation restored to the injured area in order to rehabilitate. The reverse hyperextension machine offers one of the best methods for achieving this.
In addition I picked up an upgrade with an additional attachment. Depending on which attachment is used we can prioritize the low back or prioritize the glutes/hamstrings.
This machine should not only aid in improved posture, decompress your spine but also translate towards some strength increases in your deadlifting and squat totals.Share
