Fun Hula-Hoop Exercise Routine
Move 1: Side to Side
The classic move: Holding the hoop at waist level, start with your feet slightly wider than shoulder-width apart. With your hands, push the hoop off a hip so it begins to rotate. As it spins, sway your hips in a side-to-side motion, as if bumping each side of a doorway. (Closing your eyes will help you focus on the feel of the move, says Becks-Crumpton.) Work for up to one minute, rest for a few seconds, then repeat.
