Hula Hooping with Different Weights in 1 Workout Session

Do you know working out with different hula hoop weights and textures makes workout more interesting? 
Here are some workout tips:

Warm up (3 minutes): 

1)      Do some stretches on your legs, hands and waist. 
2)      Start with lighter hula hoop (e.g. WH001 Wavy Foam Hoop, 1.2kg).
3)      Twirl hoop from left for 1.5 minutes.
4)      Twirl hoop from right for 1.5 minutes. 

Workout (5 minutes):
5)      Switch to heavier hula hoop (e.g WH002 Magnetic Hoop, 1.45kg)
6)      Twirl hoop to the left for 1.25 minutes.
7)      Twirl hoop to the right for 1.25 minutes
8)      Repeat step 6 & 7. 

Warm down (3 minutes):
9)      Switch back to lighter hula hoop to warm down.
10)  Repeat step 3 & 4. 

There you go, you have completed 11 minutes hula hoop workout session. 
Well done!

Be creative with hula hoop weight combinations, depending on your core muscles strength. As for myself, I like working out first with WH002 Magnetic Hoop 1.45kg, then move to WH020 Wavy Foam Hoop 1.8kg. Finally, warm down with WH005 Magnetic Hoop 1.1kg

Here are some are some weight combinations you would like to try:
1)      WH005 Magnetic Hoop 1.1kg >> WH001 >> Wavy Foam Hoop 1.2kg >> WH005 Magnetic Hoop 1.1kg
2)      WH001 Wavy Foam Hoop 1.2kg >> WH002 Magnetic Hoop 1.45kg >> WH001 Wavy Foam Hoop 1.2kg
3)      WH002 Magnetic Hoop 1.45kg >> WH020 Wavy Foam Hoop 1.8kg >> WH005 Magnetic Hoop 1.1kg (my favorite combination that ends with great massage!)
4)      Create one yourself (*smile).

New to Blogging

Hi all,

Thank you for visiting my blog. I have a confession, I am not an avid blogger. In fact this is my VERY FIRST blog site. I have been procrastinating blogging for many many months, since launching this website. Oh yes, that's a long time, I know. Well, I find that if I don't share with you my hula hoop adventure, no one will appreciate this wonderful, fun and easy exercise.

Lately, I have been actively searching, importing (samples only) and testing new hula hoops. You will be surprised there are many more hula hoops out there with "out-of-the-world" designs, shapes, mechanisms, materials and sizes. Have you seen hula hoop that doesn't come in circle? Trust me, there is. One day, I will post all my sample hula hoops online (fingers cross). I must say, not all make it to the "Online Shop" here. 

I have many plans for HulaHoopSingapore.com. For example, 
1) Recruiting volunteers to help out with new hula hoops testings
2) Compile and share new hula hoop exercise steps 
3) Intend to give out FREE hula hoops quarterly for our facebook fans
4) Have a friendly competition on who can hula hoop the longest. I got this idea from a facebook fan. If I remember her name correctly, she is Stephanie (thanks Steph for sharing).
5) Organize a flash mob hula hoop performance at Raffles place 
6) (Ideas will keep coming from you too, please share your ideas).

Yup, that's all I have in mind. Listing them out will help you police me to make them come true. Please share with me if you have any good ideas on how to keep this website lively and interesting for all of us. One thing we have in common, that is we are all hula hoop enthusiasts!

That's all for now.
Have a wonderful day!

Sincerely, 
May Lim
