Need dimension's for reverse hyper DIY
Anyone have access to a reverse hyper? I'm making my own and would like a few dimensions. This is for my own use, not for sale. I've purchased the steel and necessary bearings.

1. distance from floor to center of bearing
2. length of the swinging arm
3. distance between the lateral base supports

Chris-did you ever get an answer to your questions? Im on the same road and looking for suggestions as to where to get plans....

The one I built, which has worked decently so far...has a 19" pendulum, which is about six inches below the table on which I lay my oversized gut. I'm a pretty short guy (5'8" w/ a 29 inch inseam). I also use a strap that adds about 6-8 inches of length (although not straight down from the pendulum, more sidways as I pull).

hope this helps.

bet a lot of these dimensions can be based on the expected user.

I found that a 20" plyo box and a 24" plyo box stacked one on the other works nicely. If you want to add weight duct tape some dumbells to your feet.

You can get a good idea by looking at them on Louie's site but his are certainly wider than most will find necessary. But it's easy to modify for personal use, A big wide body kind of guy needs a wider setup - a taller guy will need a taller setup with a longer swing arm. The important things seem to be to get the axle as close to the hip hinge as possible and to make the base long enough from front to rear that it doesn't tip or walk across the floor when you use it.
