A normal hula hoop is light and rotates fast. It’s very hard to control it. If you don’t gyrate your hips fast enough, it’s going to the ground. AND OFTEN. This fast becomes a waste of your time. You need to be able to twirl
the hula hoop more than just a couple times before it falls to the ground.
Hula hoop exercise gives you the ability to focus on having
a smaller waist. Just work on your hula hoop five times a day or more. That’s all you have to do. No complicated techniques. No special routines to learn about. Learn how you can whirl the hoop around your waist the longest time you can. Or schedule a two-minute session every hour to do some routines. That would definitely chop off several inches off your waist easily.
