Why Hula Hooping?

Hula hooping is a fun exercise that can be done by people of any age. If you can swing your hips, you can hula hoop, and best of all, hula hoops are inexpensive and work every part of your body. Although some obese people cannot use gym equipment, they will most likely be able to hula hoop. Most people do not consider hula hooping as exercise, but it should be worked into your daily workout routine if you enjoy it.

How Many Calories?

Hula hooping, according to the American Council on Exercise, burns 200 calories every 30 minutes. Although it may seem daunting to have to hula hoop for 30 straight minutes, try breaking it up throughout the day or hooping during your favourite television show. Set up hula hooping competitions with friends or neighbours in order to increase your desire to practice. You can also use weighted hula hoops, which can be purchased at exercise stores across the country. A weighted hoop burns approximately 400 calories every 30 minutes, according to Spinning Hoop, a hooping enthusiasts' blog.

Warnings About Hula Hooping

Hula hooping is an activity that works the hips and back, as well as the arms and legs. If you have a history of back, neck or hip problems, you should consult your doctor before starting a hula hooping routine. Try to hula hoop as an exercise routine one day a week to see how you feel. If you are feeling tight in your back or neck area, consult your doctor before incorporating hula hooping into your exercise routine. Always stretch before starting to hula hoop to prevent muscle strains and sprains.
