Literally I am spinning around
You see when the Mr asked me what I would like for Christmas this year I asked for a weighted hula hoop.
There was only one doubt in my head when I sent him a link to one… that being I cant actually hula hoop, I’ve tried many many times to do it but well its quite funny to watch me atempt.
SO when Christmas morning came and I unwrapped a heaven ish box there is was, a pink and grey hula hoop and I couldn’t wait to get it out the box and put it together. Now knowing I cant hoop I waited until everyone was getting ready to give it ago. I was a little taken back at how big the hoop was and thoug there was no way it was going to stay up and i going to spend more of the time picking it up off the floor.
Before I let you know how I got in I thought I would share some reasons to stat hooping.
Bet you wondering how I got in with the hoop..
I did have to pick in up a few times (well more than a few) but I didn’t give up, the weight i was shocked I didn’t think that 1.2kg was that heavy but it is when you first start. I’ve also read/ heard people saying they bruise as well so I was prepared to get some bruising. Lucky I only had one on my right side which was rather big and it can be sore when hooping but it soon disappeared. This is my hoop.
Here’s a video of me hooping this is after some practise and I am even better at it now, than I when this was taken, not having to pick it up at much anymore.
As you can see I have the hang of keeping it going now. In all honesty I didn’t think I was going to be able to do it at all but with a littler perseverance I’m getting there. I’m already thinking of getting another hoop that’s the next weight up. There seems to be all sorts of tricks that you can do, I’ve seen people doing squats and lunges while still keeping the hoop spinning.. now that’s some skills.
I am really enjoying hooping, I think sometimes you have to find something you enjoy when it comes to execising, this is a fun way and you can do it inside (especially when the weathers cold) or outside even while you are watching the tv.
If you have any questions please ask away, I would love to help, I’m no expert but happy to help.
