Glutes and Hip Flexors

Step 1: Choose your rollers.

Step 2: Position DoubleUP so the handles are facing to one
side with the rollers on your glutes and hip flexors.

Glutes: Keep the front handle and roller stationary to use primarily for leverage. Move the rear handle up and down to roll across the target areas of your glutes. Change your stroke angle and adjust pressure as you roll to find your trigger points.

Tip: Try the LoosenUP roller for a deep tissue glute massage.

Hip Flexors: Keep the rear handle and roller stationary to use for leverage. Move the front handle up and down to roll your hip flexors using short strokes.

Tip: Rotate DoubleUP slightly as you roll to reach the target treatment area.

Lower Legs
(Calves, Tibialis, Peroneus)

Step 1: Choose your rollers.

Step 2: Position DoubleUP's rollers around your lower leg and squeeze the handles together as you roll up and down your calf and shin areas.

Step 3: Rotate the roller to reach all muscle areas, being careful of your shin bone.

Tip 1: Use the WarmUP Roller against your shin to enable you to apply more pressure to your calf muscles with the opposite roller.

Tip 2: Roll your lower leg from a standing or seated position. You can prop your foot up on a step or chair to make it even easier to reach the treatment area.

Note: When switching to roll the opposite leg, you can
Flip-to-SwitchUP to quickly and easily switch the WarmUP roller to the opposite side.

Biceps and Triceps: From a seated position, rest one handle on your thigh with the rollers facing your torso. Place your target arm between the rollers and grasp the other handle with your opposite hand. Press down on the handle to apply pressure to the rollers, and move your target arm back and forth through the rollers.

Forearms and Hands: While seated, place DoubleUP across your lap. Grasp one handle and tilt DoubleUP partially so the opposite handle is supported by your thigh. Position your target arm between the rollers. Squeeze down on the handle while moving your treatment arm or hand back and forth between the rollers.

Tip 2: The LoosenUP roller is recommended for rolling the bottom of the foot.

Note: When transitioning to the opposite foot, you can Flip-to-SwitchUP to quickly and easily switch the LoosenUP roller to the opposite side.
