Looking for something new in your fitness routine? Check out weighted hula hoops! They're easier to twirl around your waist and have multiple uses as part of the perfect total body workout to get you feeling good.
Tone Your Body
The weighted hula hoop is great for movements that target different muscles in your body, one of which being your obliques. Your obliques are your outermost abdominal muscles and when you are shaking your hips to the rhythm of the music, they will be the first muscles that will be engaged. You will be having so much fun that you wont even notice just how much you are working out until later.
The hoop can also be used in place of a ballet barre. This will help you engage your core and various leg muscles as you work on plies, squats, and leg lifts.
Great Cardio Workout
Working out with a weighted hula hoop is an excellent cardio exercise. It will stretch and strengthen your core muscles as well as your arms and leg muscles, depending on the move. In the process it will improve your posture and balance while strengthening your heart and lungs. You will be raising your heart rate to burn calories while having fun and moving to the beat of the music.
Exercise, great music, and movement can help you decrease your stress level. Plus the accomplishment of improving your dance skills and looking sexy while doing it always helps. Bring your friends and family and make it a group experience, everyone will leave feeling happy and healthy.
