Part 1: To effectively treat your hamstrings without additional help from a partner. You will first begin by lying your HyperRoller on the floor and place your leg over the top with the knee bent.
Using your upper body and arms, lean back pulling the roller into the hamstring. Glide from one end of the hamstring up to the other. Stop to examine any tender or tight areas. Repeat several times to facilitate proper release of the tissue.
Part 2: You will first begin by lying your HyperRoller on the floor and then place your thigh on top of the roller. Center the roller so it has a direct line of travel through the middle of your hamstring. Apply the weight of your leg/body into the HyperRoller with your pressure pushing down on the roller and glide back and forth. Stop to examine any tender or tight areas. Repeat several times to facilitate proper release of the tissue.
