This is not a new exercise to stay fit. It is an exercise routine where you need to twirl the hoop around your waist, belly, arms and legs.
The best part of this form of exercise is that it helps you burn the same amount of calories as exercises like kickboxing or aerobics. Depending on your weight, exercise duration and intensity, you can burn up to 420 calories in a 60-minute session.
The American Council of exercise sponsored a study on the calorie expenditure of hula hoop as an exercise and found that this exercise burned 210 calories in a 30-minute workout session equivalent to seven calories per minute. So all you need is a hula hoop, comfortable clothes, 30 minutes of your time and you are good to go!
The best hula hoop for adults is about 45 inches in diameter and weighs around 907.2 grams - it’s not heavy enough to bruise your body. In terms of size, the bigger the hoop, the easier it is to use because it gives you more time to react to the forward and backward hooping movements. The diameter of the right size hoop should be between the height of your waist and your breastbone.
