It happens to all of us, from the novice hoop dancer to even the most veteran of performers. You spend so much time mastering a hoop trick or flow sequence, that your brain gets stuck in the movement pattern you’ve practiced.  You can see this in a hoop jam or a performance, where inevitably you fall back on the patterns that your brain and body know, the sequences that are comfortable.  This can lead to stagnation, boredom, or feeling “stuck” in your hoop dance flow.  Today we are going to give you 9 ways to freshen up an old trick and break out of your “hooping habits” that will re-energize your mind and just might help you invent the next amazing hoop trick.

Mini Lesson: Focusing on THIS Will Ruin Your Weight Loss Efforts

It’s December.  The season of giving, the season of frantic holiday shopping and commitments, lunches with friends, and yes, the season of endless food appearing at your office.  We could save this mini series on fat loss for the new Year, but we thought we would give you a head start to help you reach your goals.

And yes, this was actually my lunch in a sea of pies, so I really do get it.

I recently had lunch with a very good friend of mine, Paige, who shared that she was up 8 lbs from this time last year and that the doctor had advised her to get the 8 lbs off as soon as possible to avoid some very common health problems that affect many of us and have affected others in her family.  All of this while I bob my head up and down as I too have had obesity, diabetes, heart disease, depression,  and chronic back pain debilitate members of my family.

Fire up your glutes and sculpt sexy shoulders using our buns and guns hoop circuit.

The majority of us that start on a hoop fitness quest waist hoop to lose abdominal fat and increase mood and have fun.  But if you’re looking to make some serious gains with your fitness and weight loss, you may just need to step out of your circle from time to time and boost your results with strength training.  Even a couple of sessions  a week can have HUGE impact on your weight loss and fitness goals by:

  • Burning belly fat.  Twice weekly strength training sessions with overweight women ages 25 to 44 (The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition) compared with a group that did only aerobic activity showed more body fat total with the strength training group, AND less abdominal fat.
  • Firing up your posterior chain.  If you are on your computer, driving, watching tv or texting, you’re not only sitting on your rear, but you’re inactivating that whole posterior chain.  This series is designed to fire that back up to help prevent back injuries and muscle imbalances.
  • Lower blood pressure.  Even an hour of strength training a week can help reduce blood pressure and drop stroke risk by 25 percent.
  • Build strength without the bulk.  These exercises are challenging enough just using your body weight.  You’ll gain strength without a bulk look.
  • Improve insulin sensitivity.  If you’re struggling with weight loss, you likely are some degree of insulin resistant.  Adding strength training into your program helps your body use glucose, or blood sugar.

We’ve got two versions for you – one with your fitness hoop and one using hoop minis (our secret weapon for sculpting shoulders and arms).

Demo videos are posted at the end of the workout cards.
