Hula Hoop and Your Health

The hula hoop is back or maybe it never left. People are flocking to the old toy in an effort to exercise rather than play.

The Hula Hoop and Your Health

The hula hoop is an ancient invention – no modern company and no single person can claim that they invented the first hula hoop. The Greeks used hooping as a form of exercise.

Older hoops have been made from metal, bamboo, wood, grasses, and even vines.

However, modern companies “re-invented” their own versions of the hula hoop using unusual materials, for example; plastic hula hoops with added bits of glitter and noisemakers, and hoops that are collapsible. Now the invention has an added glitter “healthy exercise”.

We tend to think that losing weight and have a flat stomach can be really hard, but in reality, it is not. It’s as easy as turning back to their games banter as the Hula-Hoop – that’s right, not only is good for the stomach also can tone the thighs, buttocks, and arms.

The secret is a lot of practice and the right equipment – the bigger and heavier the hoop, the easier it is to control and the more it will help with body tone.

Here are four easy exercises that will get you in shape:

Side by Side: The classic movement, swing your hips from side to side with the hoop up to your waist and legs at pair with your shoulders.

Front and Back: Like side, to side place the hoop up to your waist, placing one leg in front of the other, and balance from front to back.

The Bump: With your legs together and hoop up to your waist start rotating it, flex, and stretch your legs.

The Orbit: Position the hoop on your wrists completely straight, start slowly rotating it and move your arms up and down.

It is not at all time-consuming and is easy to get started. With 10 minutes every day, you will see results, but you also have to help and cut the food cravings.
