Default Hula Hooping

Hula hooping is making a big comeback right now. I was just wondering if any of you ladies use this form of exercise. It's highly cardio and it's a lot of fun.

Yes, I do! I have a weighted hula hoop and I try to do it every night before bed, aside from my regular torture...I mean excercise sessions! I don't know if it's that great or not, but it seems like it can't hurt. I thought the max amount of time is 8 minutes, but I've heard 15 minutes lately, so I increased it to that much. Is yours weighted? How many minutes do you do it for? Do you do it as your main exercise or do you do other stuff too? Just wondering.

Love it! I hoop as my main cardio right now, as it is so much fun. Ususlly about an hour a night, with my retro-covers music mixes on my ipod to put me in the right mood. Add some weights 3-4 times a week, and I'm feeling good. I also have a sports hoop from Hoopnotica, and the beginer's DVDs from them as well. LOTS of brusing on my hips during the first two weeks, though.

I made my own hula hoop with irrigation tubing, connectors and electrical tape. I found the directions at www.hooping.org I don't hoop for any certain amount of time, I just put on some music and hoop till I can't hoop anymore. I was fortunate, I never bruised, but when I started I couldn't hoop for more than four or five minutes at a time before I was totally winded. Do any of you know of any websites or DVDs that can help me out on the tricks?

Hey, 150Reasons,
ExpertVillage.com has Hula Hoop Basics 1,2 & 3 for free! I have the Hoopnotica DVDs, and I like that they have a section at the end of each "chapter" for problem solving if the trick is difficult for you.
