For those who follow me on twitter, you’re probably well aware that I am IN LOVE with the latest addition to my ‘lazy girl’s work out’ family; my weighted hula hoop!
There it is, nestled against my Shake Weight.. I bought it from The Hoop Dance Co via Amazon, and picked the smallest size I could find (36″), with a low weight of 600g — reason being the smaller you are, the smaller size hoop you need. Ideally it needs to be waist height when held up against you.
I’ve been so busy these last few days since its arrival I’ve hardly had any time at all to dedicate to it, however within 24 hours, after only spending five minutes here and there, I’ve improved in leaps and bounds. It’s crazy how far I’ve come in such a short space of time, when I started I honestly could only hoop for about a second before it’d tumble down!
Now that I can hoop to a comfortable standard, I’M ADDICTED. I love it so much! Everytime I put it down I crave picking it back up again. Sometimes the only reason I stop is because I’m simply too out of breath to continue! Which brings me to my next point; an hour of fast hooping is allegedly as intensive a work out as an hour on the treadmill! Impressive, no?
Will report back with results, hopefully I’ll be hooping my way to a tinier waist in no time (I have taken before measurements to compare! )!
