Rogue DT Tempering Roller
Increase Your Explosiveness

Rogue’s DT Tempering Rollers were co-developed with powerlifting legend Donnie Thompson—creator of the Thompson Fatbell, the Fat Pad, and the Belt Squat Belt—among many other innovations. In his South Carolina gym, Thompson has helped introduce “body tempering” as a heavy-duty upgrade over traditional foam rollers, utilizing weighted cast-iron cylinders to break up trigger points and relieve tightness in the joints, muscles and fascia. Rogue has refined those original prototype cylinders into our 24" DT Tempering Rollers, available here in 50 LB or 80 LB increments.

Compared to other massaging rollers, the substantial weight of the DT Tempering Rollers can create a much more intense form of soft tissue mobilization, without causing any additional pain or discomfort in the process. All of our rollers are made from powder-coated cast iron, and feature recessed ends that act as the handles, enabling easier handling and control. Color-coded bands are included in the center of each roller (indicating the weight) and at both ends (featuring Rogue branding) for easy identification from a distance: Green = 50 LB or Gray = 80 LB.

Key Features of Rogue DT Tempering Rollers

  • 1Developed with Donnie Thompson

    Developed with Donnie Thompson For Donnie Thompson, decades of experience as both a champion powerlifter and world renowned trainer have helped him become one of his sport’s great innovators, as well. In his own South Carolina gym, the creator of the Thompson Fatbell has already replaced foam rollers entirely with the weighted cast iron alternative, noting the added intensity in treatment without any added pain. His body tempering methodology has caught on with trainers around the world, and now has a new formal tool design in the form of the Rogue DT Tempering Roller.

  • 2Intense, Effective Mobility Treatment

    Despite their heavier weight, the size and shape of the DT Tempering Rollers help distribute pressure in such a way that the athlete gets the benefits of an intense massaging treatment without any additional pain or discomfort from the tool itself. Slowly rolled over a muscle/joint/area for 1 to 2 minutes, the weighted cylinder can help facilitate soft tissue mobilization and temporarily relieve nagging knots or tightness, enabling the user to train longer and more effectively in the weight room.

  • 3Two Sizes

    We currently offer the DT Tempering Roller in three size options, giving users the ability to switch weights depending on the area of the body being treated:
    50LB: 24" long x4.5" diameter, Green color bands
    80LB: 24" long x 5" diameter, Gray color bands

  • 4Quality Rogue Construction

    These durable 24" rollers are manufactured from quality cast iron, and feature a powder-coat finish and recessed ends for an easy grip and leveraged control. The segmented design and exterior grooves work with the natural contours of the body for a more precise and beneficial treatment.

  • 5For Any Large Region of the Body

    DT Tempering Rollers can be used to break up trigger points and tightness anywhere from the shoulders and chest to the quads, glutes, hamstrings and calves.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Immediate Results I ordered 4 DT rollers last month and use them on my patients and myself every day. The improvement in how you move after Tempering is immediate. After rolling out, the first lift or drill you do feels the same as the 3rd warm up set usually does. Weight moves freakishly easier and you don’t fight that usual tightness you have from the last training session. This Body Tempering roller is well designed. I especially like the center groove that keeps the roller off the spine. If you are not sure about Body Tempering, try it. You will be impressed and it will make a huge impact on how you perform.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Daily Use! I started tempering early this year through a tool at my chiropractors office. I fell in love with it and realized how much better it would be if I could temper my legs every day! I am a triathlete that suffers from IT band syndrome and patellar tracking issues and this tempering tool has been extremely useful in releasing the tightness my quads and adductors (that keep pulling my patella out of place). I highly recommend this tool. I absolutely love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Miracle cure I've owned my 80 pounder for three weeks, & the 50 for two weeks. This device & #bodytempering concept has allowed me to squat again. Have an arthritic hip and some not so good knees, but using my BT device daily, I'm not only back again squatting, but back in the mid 400's. Thanks Donnie Thompson!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice tool for recovery. As an older lifter I have found this tool to be useful. I find myself wanting more though. I think this is due to the current 80lb max, which is the reason for my 4 star review. When my son rolls my back, I have him putting as much weight as possible to obtain effectiveness. This being said, I would love to see Rogue come out with a heavier Roller for tempering.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great at it’s job ... Have the 80-lb and it has been a godsend to my calves and quads. Shaped perfectly for self manipulating your hip flexor and inner thigh. Allowed me to get a deeper smash than with my solid foam roller . One complaint... had it less than a month and the painted is coming off.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Design easy to handle I took these to the gym where I work out at so everyone can use and enjoy them. The design makes for easy handling. We can not wait for the 80 pound ones to come back in stock.
