The two vids you linked are reasonable subs but don't match the movement 100%. So if I didn't have one, I'd definitly do something like the vids. I used to do them off of big exercise ball similar to the 2nd vid. But there is a difference. I see 3 major limitations to the vids shonw:

1.) In both configurations you'd be limited by the amount of weight you could revese hyper. I think it would be hard to strap 100lbs or more to your legs in the fashion they demonstrated. I'm easily using 120lbs for 15-20reps and I'm of moderate strength/fitness.

2.) Range of motion is limited. To really open up the back on the eccentric portion of the movement, you should be able to see the edge of the plates or your feet when you look down in front of you. In the first vid off the bar, he has to cut the movement short just in front of his hips. In the second, his box gets in the way. Also in the second, he hyperextends his back. Just reach neutral posture then go back down.

3.) Comfort. The pelvis and often the man parts can get a little mashed in this movement if you don't set up right. Using a bar can put a lot of force on the man zone even with some padding. 2nd setup appears a little easier on the body.
Bear in mind though that the first reverse hyper which Louie used to rehab his back and to work with his athletes was exactly this type of set up. Louie describes it in one of the CF Journal videos.
The specialised piece of gear capable of being loaded with large amounts of weights came later. There's no denying the machine is much better, but Louie got most of the benefits of the equipment using his home made lash-up.

Re: reverse hypers

I have the Rogue one. It's pretty nice and gets the job done, but not nearly as good as the adjustable ones like Louie has at Westisde. But, I'm not going to spend $2,000

Re: reverse hypers

Ghetto rigging is possible.. so is spending 1k+ on one... but Rogue offers one that is clearly the best of both worlds... not super expensive, but gets the job done.
If you're looking for a reverse hyper or GHD, check this site out

Re: reverse hypers

i saw a reverse hyper attachment for a power rack that was awsome ... if you could find or make a GHD attachment that would be sick...

Re: reverse hypers

Corevolution

WFS

I found one of these locally on craigslist for $40.00 in like new condition.
It is actually decently soild for a portable home model.

I've had 140 lbs on it, I recommend counterweighting for higher weights.

Re: reverse hypers

Corevolution looks like the rehab model of the reverse hyper that was sold through some rehabbers.

I'd be curious as to how much weight it can handle. But a great deal for $40.

In the video was that an air filled weight?
