How Many Calories Can You Burn Waist Hooping?

How many calories can you REALLY burn waist hooping? Today we are going to show you 7 ways to burn more calories hooping and take your waist hooping to the next level.

There’s no doubt that hooping burns calories – The American Council on Exercise conducted a study to determine cardio and calorie burning effects of hooping. The study used 16 women between the ages of 16 and 59, all of whom were intermediate to advanced level hoopers (read the study here). The average calorie burn for this group in a 30 minute session was 210.

Think 210 calories won’t produce results? If you hooped every day for half an hour that’s the equivalent of 21 pounds lost!

ADD TIME AND INTENSITY TO YOUR PRACTICE without even realizing it. And become a hoop master in the process!

Growing up in rhythmic gymnastics, mastery of skills was critical. If you’ve never seen Rhythmic gymnastics (look for it in the summer 2016 Olympic Games), it involves dance movements with the rope, ribbon, ball, clubs, and yes, hoop! Ironically the hoop was one of my least favorite and most difficult events as a child. Mainly because a standard size of hoop was required per age group and I was so tiny that the hoop came up to my collarbone. I’ll never forget one of the mastery skills had me jumping OVER the hoop while it was rolling on the floor. NOT easy. To this day, my parents giggle that the piece of equipment that I came back to as an adult was the hoop.

PART ONE:  Abs, Abs, and More, well, abs!

Note:  In this tutorial we used the Weighted Exercise Hoop Vinyl Tapes.   However, you can use any hoop to perform these exercises.

Today’s challenge teaches you how to challenge your abdominals and core with additional exercises using your hoop.  If you find these challenging, make the modifications suggested in the video and always begin any new exercise conservatively to avoid excessive soreness.  If you are just beginning to do core work, please don’t do more than one set of these exercises.
