Hoop Away That Extra Baby Weight!

Hoop Away That Extra Baby Weight!

Have you recently had a baby? You have been working out really hard and exercising, but there is that last little bit of fat around your tummy. No matter what you do it won’t go anywhere! Well, look no further. I have found a couple videos that will blast the fat and leave you feeling hoopy and happy! Enjoy! First things First EXERCISE!!!!   If you haven’t started some sort of workout routine than you need to! It can be anything! I have two little boys (3  and 1 years old) and it was difficult to get back in the swing of things. I was busy being a wife, new mom, and also going to school for Geology. I started going to Zumba (which I highly recommend). I was also doing a couple other routines (weights, hiking, exercising) however, I just couldn’t shake that last little bit of weight around my tummy. I’m not overweight- I just wanted to get toned back up, as I’m sure all of you do too! So get your booty up and moving! Extra bonus- when you exercise with your baby, they act as a weight and you get to spend time together! Now What? Go find your hoop silly! Any hoop, any size (the smaller the hoop the more you will be working your core). If you don’t have one, go to K-mart or the Dollar Store and buy one (for less than $5), drain out the beads or water and voila! You’re good to go! If it is a new hoop, make sure you’re comfortable with it; it will just make it...

YEAH!!!!! I can hoop around my waist, but where do I go from here? As a beginning hooper I found myself asking that same question. Hmmmm. I guess I will just start tossing and throwing the hoop around, jump through there; maybe a little something like this…… That was fun! I want to learn some tricks. So obviously my first thought was to look videos up on my computer on YouTube. I decided to look up beginning hula hooping, video overload! I randomly start watching videos, a few seconds here, few minutes there. It has now become sensory overload. I excitedly run back out and grab my hoop to try all this craziness I just saw. Ugh. So I go back to hooping on my waist while scratching my head. Sound familiar?   I thought I would gather up a few videos and tutorials that will hopefully give you some ideas and inspiration in your early hooping discovery. Have Fun! The Vortex This is probably one of the first moves that many people learn. It only makes sense; the hoop is on your waist and you want to get it above your head. In this tutorial, Deanne Love from HoopLovers shows us several different versions of the vortex.     Isolations Isolations are great for a couple of reasons: 1) You don’t have to have the hoop on your body 2) These are great exercises for your arms and shoulders! The first video from GemGen breaks down the basic concept of a one-handed isolation. The video is a bit long but she does a wonderful job of explaining. She also...
