hula hooping

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hi everyone

I went on a spa day yesterday and tried their hula hoop class while i was there, it was great fun and energetic, i had a bet with my friend about how many times it would hit the floor!!

I have decided to buy a weighted hoop (weighted are better suited for adult exercise use than a kiddies plastic one) and apparently they are good for working bum, tum & thigh zone in particular which is my problem zone, the hoops are about £15 on ebay + a few pounds for p&p

I'm hoping to get out in the garden 15-30mins a day with it, hopefully will see some results smile

    Sounds like good fun but i think I'll give it a miss I never was very good at it as a child.

    Hope you Hoola Hoopers have lots of fun and get good results :D

    I am impressed by anyone who can hula hoop!

    I've never been able to do it (yet strangely have the top 3 scores for virtual hula hooping on my wii fit!)

    Have fun with the real thing!

    i have never been good but then i was told i was doing it wrong, apparently the common belief is that you should move in a circular motion like the hoop (like on the wii fit) but you should either stand with legs slightly appart and quickly move hips side to side or place one foot infront of the other and move your hips foward and back quickly, i managed 2 mins without dropping the hoop so hopefully i can improve on that time lol!

    oohhh almost making me want to get one :D

    I've also heard you shouldn't go circular but back to front. good luck

    where did you get one from and how much? maybe we could all get one and have a competition :lol:

    i purchased a 40\" weighted hoola hoop. it was about £14 off ebay (from a seller called bestwina) then about £3 p&p, i got a travel one so it doubles over for easy transport

    the prices vary based on size of hoop you get, whether you get particular colours (plain, multiple, holographic etc)
