Hula hooping is great for balance, co-ordination, flexibility and its a great thing to be able to show off if you can't juggle.


Hula Hoop for a minute Challenge rules

  2. You must keep it up on your hips or torso for a minute - spinning it around your hand does not count.

Jeff C Hula Hoop for a minute Challenge

Contributorgold Jeff C This morning a magic happened to me. My Hula Lula finally decided to stay with me in spite of the powerful gravity. Thank you Hula Lula...I completed one of my lifetime goals. Only left are now Pistol Squat, Hand standing and the marathon.

Jeff C Hula Hoop for a minute Challenge

Contributorgold Jeff C I can not believe I did it. Not a minute but about 20 sec. just now. Tears flowing on my cheeks.
I did with the heavy large one with bumps (Hula Zula of my sister in law) but can not do even 5 sec. with smaller one (my new Hula Lula) ...

Kevin G Hula Hoop for a minute Challenge

Sports-iqgold Kevin G answered the question How to start Hooping?

Dave, I took this challenge a couple of months ago as the wife had a hula hoop laying around our flat. No idea what the guide says, but I found starting with the hoop right under your armpits let me get into a rhythm...

Dave W Hula Hoop for a minute Challenge

Contributorgold Dave W Nearly there - only 57 seconds away from completing this !! ;-)
Positivity has always been one of my better qualities ;-) Thankfully !

I think I'm in the same boat as you Dave. It will probably fall to my knees in a matter of seconds! lol

Dave W encouraged this.

Jeff C Hula Hoop for a minute Challenge

Contributorgold Jeff C Mastering Pistol Squat and Hula Hoop is my two life long goals. First I need Hula Hoop... I don't want to buy one until I am decent at hooping....Anyone lend me one?

20141217171258-jeffchuh

Thank you for the discouragement Dave. LOL. I already knew I don't have much chance anyway. But I still want to try it. I will ask the little girl in my next neighborhood. Better yet I will ask my 5 years old to ask to lend him, that way my reputation would intact in my hood. ^^

Dave W Hula Hoop for a minute Challenge

I thought that the best exercise for the midsection (logically) just had to be hula hooping, which is why as a 16stone bodybuilder took up this challenge.

I do feel a little daft even doing this, but what makes me feel extra daft is the fact that...

Carol Ann B Hula Hoop for a minute Challenge

Contributorgold Carol Ann B Going to buy a new hula hoop.. any suggestions on decent one to get?

Brenda D and Sharon J encouraged this.

20121004122510-mdsl

I bought mine in Melbourne but I was told to choose a larger one (not like the children store ones) and weighted as they are easier to use at first :) good luck Carol, have fun

Carol Ann B encouraged this.

20121004122510-mdsl

ps: I notice Tesco here in Bangkok sell them (in the sports section) so they are probably in your local tesco too :)

Carol Ann B encouraged this.

20140530142148-carolann

Thanks for that Sharon, yes I used to have a bigger/heavier one.. will check out one of the Tesco Extra stores over the weekend :) Happy Hooping!!

Ruth C Hula Hoop for a minute Challenge

Contributorgold Ruth C I was looking at these in Asda tonight and I was really tempted to complete the "I did it while..." challenge and do it in the aisle, but my husband wasn't there to timekeep!

20140521213903-neil

You can count to 60, right? :D

20130927182831-zoobenny

I stop at 50 on Thursdays, had it been a Tuesday I could have gone all the way to 100! :op Besides I'm all about the accuracy Neil, I wouldn't want to short change the challenge!

Neil C encouraged this.

20140521213903-neil

If you use the "1-elephant-2-elephant-3…" counting cadence and property enunciate "elephant" when counting in your head, you'll won't short change the challenge :)
