HULA your way to better abs!


Don’t exercise. That’s right. You heard me. Have fun, instead! If you focus on finding a physical activity that brings you joy, it won’t matter that you are exercising. You will be more likely to continue engaging in that particular activity because you are having a wonderful time.


Do you remember playing with a hula hoop when you were a kid? Just about everybody has memories of swirling a plastic hoop around his or her hips. Some of us got pretty good at it too. If you’ve tried using a plastic kid hoop lately, you probably weren’t able to keep it from immediately falling down to the ground.t. It’s not your fault. As I said before, those hoops were designed for kids-not for adults. Adults are too tall and heavy to use the traditional hula hoop. But today there are weighted hula hoops created for adults who want to get a good workout and have fun at the same time.


Weighted hoops come in weights ranging from 3 to 5 pounds. Since the hoops are larger and heavier, it is much easier to keep them revolving around your body. Weighted hoops can also be a fantastic way to lose weight. Ten minutes of daily hooping with a weighted hoop can help you burn 100 calories . According to libertyfitness.com , you can trim 2 inches from your waist within a month! And let’s face it. Twirling a hula hoop around your waist beats the heck out of walking on a treadmill.


Even the most uncoordinated person can learn to hoop it. It’s fun, it’s liberating, and it makes you feel like a kid again. Where do you find these hoops? Do a basic google search and you’ll find inexpensive hoops in cool neon colors through online merchants or your neighborhood fitness store. Online stores offer plenty of weighted hoop instructional or fitness DVDs available for purchase.


Finding time to workout with your weighted hoop is easy to accomplish. You can work out in your living room while you watch your favorite TV show or when you walk around your house. If you thrive in a group environment, you can join one of the many hooping classes offered throughout the U.S.
