Do you Hula Hoop or Want to Learn?

post #1 of 147
Thread Starter 
Looking to see if there are any others here on MDC! I started hooping bc of a thread on TBW and have been loving it. So now I am trying to find a few others who enjoy it too!!

A few of my hoops:

My 1st hoop I made

2nd Hoop I made

DS1's Hoop I made from the left over tubing

Rainbow Hoop ~ Never want to do that one again @ least for now

Hooping in the House

DH Hooping in the House

DS1 Hooping in the House

I have requested a few instructional DVDs from the library. Hoping they help me. Youtube has some great videos too.

So who hoops too?!?!

Smiles,

Not a hooper here, but really like it. I'm just not good.


But I was playing else where and came across this video of this chick I met at a Tea Leaf Green show not to long ago.
Thought I'd add it here.

Skirt Hooping

Are you with a child's hoop or an adult size hoop? My DH can even hoop with mine. There are some tutes to make your own.

I have a friend who is really getting into it, and after watching the vid of the mama @ tealeafgreen show, I want to do it! Just had a babe 5 wks ago....probably great for those stretched out abs!!

Congrats Mami!! Go check out youtube from lots of videos! They have instructional ones if you need any help! I really feel my abs working when I do 3 or more hoops at 1 time.

You guys make me want to go out and get a hula hoop! I don't think I could make one, at least not until we move to our own place...but man I want one! We played the hula game at my Dads ont he wii and it killed the abs, but was so fun!

Have fun creating your circus Sunny!!

SeekingSleep, I heard the Wii was good for hooping. A few Mamas on my NutriSystem forum said that since they do not have real hoops.

It was so easy to make my own hoops. Taping probably was the hardest part for me and of that it was deciding the pattern.

Happy Hooping!!

Nope. I think I should make one. Thanks for the reminder.

He just knows I could seriously kick his at it! :

I just started hooping....I made my own but still have to tape/decorate it yet. Man,after the first day my sides were sooo bruised!! I get frustrated when I watch all the incredible videos of hoopers...but I know practice makes perfect

I have a hoop and do a bit to music. I don't know any tricks though and think it would be fun to learn.

Any tips on the best starting place? My library doesn't have anything.

You Tube Just put in a search for "hooping" or "hoopers",etc......then get ready to have your mind blown! These chics are amazing
