Tips on Hooping

Waist Hoop:

Put one foot slightly in front of the other. (Usually right-handed people put their right foot forward and give it a good hard swing to the left and left-handed people put their left foot forward and give it a good hard swing to the right. Figure out which way is best for you.)

  • Keep your shoulders back and abs tight.
  • Place the hoop against your back.
  • Level with the floor.
  • Give it a GOOD THROW around you!
  • Rock back and forth from waist down.
  • Keep a slight bend in knees and push into ground.
  • Keep your head up, don't look down.
  • Don't stiffen back leg.
  • Don't try to control hoop with upper body. Move hips side to side if easier.

Hoop 3 minutes the first day, then 4 minutes the next, until you work up to 10 minutes a day and continue 5 days a week. Don't overdo it at first. It's a Workout!

Practice, Practice, Practice!! Don't Give Up!! Just like riding a bike - Once You Got It, It's Easy!!

 

(If you are still having trouble, try practicing the above tips in front of a mirror. This can help you quickly discover what you might need to correct. P.S. You might be a little sore, but I say, “Get Sore to Soar!”)

 

Arm Hoops:

Biceps - Start with your arms straight out to your sides with the palms facing up.  Place the arm hoop on your wrist and begin by rotating the hoop backwards.  Rotate hoops for 30 to 60 seconds.  (Keep the hoops on the wrists)

Triceps- Start with your arms straight out with your palms facing backwards and your thumbs pulled into palms. Rotate hoops backwards for 30 to 60 seconds.  (Keep the hoops on the wrists)
