View Full Version : Hula hooping!

Just wanted to share something I have been doing for a while now which has given me some good results.

Hula hooping!

In the past few days I've really noticed that my waist and hips look much much slimmer, and I generally feel very svelte!

It's a really awesome way to work up a sweat and have fun, just put on some dancey music and away you go. :carrot:

Maybe this will give someone else an idea how to incorporate some fun exercise into their day :)

I haven't tried "real" hula hoop but I love the game on the Wii. Quite the work out!

I think my calorie burning from a hula hoop work out would come mostly from laughing at myself as I try to hula hoop. I can see how it would be an awesome workout, I just can't get the darn thing to stay on my hips.

Doesn't laughing burn even more calories? ;-)

LOL you may be right!!! I think I will get a matching mini skirt and halter top to complete the look!!

I do Hula Hooping also with a 3.5lb hula hoop. I think it's so cool. If you're listening to music it actually feels like you're dancing.

Hooping is by far one of my favorite activities to do. :) I have a great 3 lb hoop that I use at least every other day. It almost seems too fun to count as exercise!

I'm a hooper, too. I found directions for making a heavier, adult hoop online and my DH made me a couple (different sizes and weights).

I also crank up the music and really enjoy myself. :D I spent a lot of time picking the hoop up off the floor the first few days, but it's like riding a bike - once you've got it, you've got it.

Yay! I just got my 4 lb one! It bruises easy haha but I can't wait to get used to it and really go!

I bought a weighted one also, I think 3.5 lbs, and am still going thru the "bruising" stage. But oh, it is fun!!!! :carrot::carrot::carrot:
