Hula Hooping

I've recently been given a hula hoop and have been playing around with it. It makes me feel like a kid again.

Anyways, I looked it up and you can burn from 400-600 calories an hour hooping.

How cool is that!!!!! I'm pretty excited:happy:

    I have a weighted hula hoop (5lbs) and it really gets the heart rate up, even just doing 15 min and taking a break then another 15 min. It's GREAT!! :flowerforyou:
    Though, I couldn't do that much time at first, I had to build up!

    The hooping that you looked up is probably with a weighted hoop. I have a 5lb one and work up a sweat with it. If your just using a regular hula hoop youre probably not burning quite that much. Is it one of these?

    If not, you should invest in one i really love mine!! Everybody is probably tired of me posting about it, but im in love with it and it works soo good on getting rid of love handles and tonning up the baby belly.:wink:

    Sounds Fun. Too bad I can't keep a hula hoop up longer than 2 seconds!:laugh:
