A semi-microscopic model to study the double backbending phenomenon in some deformed even-even nuclei from the rare earth region is proposed. The backbending phenomena are described by mixing four rotational bands, defined by a set of angular momentum projected states with a specific single-particle factor, and a model Hamiltonian describing a set of paired particles moving in a deformed mean field and interacting with a phenomenological deformed core. Due to the specific construction, the wave function acquires a complex structure which allows a quantitative description of the yrast states in the region of the two backbendings.
