How to Hula Hoop

Here's an easy two-step lesson

 

  1. Make sure you have the right size of hula hoop!

  If you're using a kid-sized hoop, forget it! Most hula hoops that you can buy at stores are designed for children.

  You'll save yourself a lot of heartache (and gain a lot of fun) if you use an adult size hoop to begin with.

   Exerhoop Hula-hoops are also being used and enjoyed by children as young as  5+ years old.

 Our own 5, 6 & 9 year old grandchildren enjoy hooping. See the photos on the  Gallery Page.

 

  2. Put one foot in front of the other, and shift your weight

  Proper technique helps you get the most out of your hooping workout.

To begin hooping, stand with one foot in front of the other.

  Stand in the middle of the hoop and rest the inside of the hoop against your back.

  Hold the hoop in both hands with your arms at your sides.

Turn your torso to your right to "wind up" the hoop.

  Quickly toss the hoop to the left and rock your hips forward and backward to keep the hoop spinning.

  If this direction does not work well, try tossing the hoop to the left or changing your lead foot.

Easier said than done?

Be patient!

It can take a while to get the hang of it don't give up!

Hoop Exercises

 Air Punch

 While hooping alternatively punch your arms in the air vertically then horizontally then to the front and  sides, then repeat the sequence.

 Side Step

While keeping the hoop spinning take a step to the left with your left foot, bring the right foot across to it. Repeat by stepping to your right.

 Crouch

Maintain the hoop spinning and slowly crouch down, bending at your knees, hold for a few seconds and stand up.

 Skipping

 Use the hoop in place of a skipping rope. Hold the hoop across in front of your body holding it with both hands at the 10 past 10  position. Step thro the hoop and swing it up over your head while jumping through it as it swings under your feet.
