Hoop For Hope Challenge #8

September 29, 2019 4 min read

 

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.

IT’S A SUPERBOWL DANCE COMBINATION CHALLENGE!

In this challenge, we teach you a basic hoop dance combination using a half horizontal toss, pass, and reverse escalator kick out.  You can use a dance hoop or weighted fitness hoop to perform this combination, but admittedly lighter dance hoops will be a bit easier than weighted fitness hoops.

Upload your photos or videos of you practicing the combination to your Facebook timeline or Instagram and use the hashtag #canyonhoopssuperbowl  We will be featuring our favorites on our Facebook page during the Super Bowl on Sunday!  All photos should be posted by Saturday, February 6 at 11pm PST for consideration.

Background

Judy wrote to us asking for help in possibly ordering a new hoop size or how to best work with her exercise hula hoop she already purchased.  Judy is 75 and had never hooped before purchasing her 42” weighted exercise hoop from Canyon Hoops.  She learned to hoop by watching our Hoop Fitness DVD and was super excited to learn that she could hoop at 75 for the first time!  She mentioned that she experienced soreness above her right hip after hooping and as a result had taken time off from hooping.  She wrote in to ask whether she should get a different hoop size or what she could do differently.
