It’s time to get Fit! A Hula Hoop is a fun way to get in shape and get that tummy flat and strong. If you don’t like doing sit ups, this will help you get toned abs, better posture and circulation along with a huge sweat.
When I was a kid hula hoop use to be fun. I didn’t know I was working out until I became an adult. Although I’m tired from the workout, it was extremely fun and I look forward to doing it everyday.
Follow me as I take you through a series of ways to get in shape with the weighted hula hoop.
How to do it
Front-to-Back Waist Hooping
With one hand on each side, hold the hoop horizontally so that it touches the small of your back. Wind up by holding the hoop and turning your body in one direction to give the hoop an energetic spin around your waist in the opposite direction (most people prefer spinning the hoop in one direction over another). Push your belly/hip forward pushing firmly each time the hoop crosses your stomach, shifting your weight back and forth, forward and back. Keep both feet on the ground as you push your belly/hip forward with each revolution of the hoop, slightly bending and straightening the forward leg, shifting your weight, rocking front to back on each push of your hips. The push of your hip back is as important as the forward push.
Stand inside the hoop and place your feet hip distance apart and bend your knees a little. With one hand on each side, hold the hoop horizontally so it firmly touches the small of your back. Wind up and turn your body in one direction and give the hoop an energetic spin around your waist in the opposite direction. Move your hips side to side, pushing the hoop as it passes over each hip. Remember to keep your hands and elbows above the hoop.
Most people favor spinning the hoop in one direction over another. There is no right or wrong direction. Typically right-handers flow the hoop counter-clockwise to the left, and left-handers flow the hoop clockwise to the right. Your favored direction is referred to as your “first direction” or your “in-flow.”
