These days’ women want to have perfect figure. They fantasize models and want to have a figure like them. They are spending thousands of rupees just for having a flat tummy, and a nice figure. But is your money going in right direction. What if i say you can lose your fat at home only! In just a bug. Sounds exciting!

So here is it you can go for hula hooping one of the fun ways to lose weight. You will create new muscle as you allow the hoop to move around you and allow yourself to be moved by it.It burns 100 calories every 10 minutes that’s as much as running on a treadmill — and a lot more fun. All you need is to have a hoop and follow the following eight exercises.

Forward Stance: – Stand inside the hoop with your right foot forward, holding the hoop against your lower back. Keeping your pelvis tucked, shoulders squared, and chest lifted, bend your knees slightly and give the hoop a good counter clockwise spin around your waist, making sure it’s level.
To keep the hoop moving, shift your weight quickly between your front and back legs, moving your hips backward (A) and forward (B). If you feel the hoop beginning to drop, stand up straighter and push the front of your hip into the hoop as it comes around.

Side Stance: – Stand with your feet a bit wider than shoulder-width apart and parallel to each other. Give the hoop a good spin, and rock your hips from side to side so the hoop hits on the sides of your waist. Make sure your abs are tight, with chest and head lifted. The more power you put into each push, the faster the hoop will go.

360 Spin: – First, try this without your hoop: With your left foot planted firmly, step right foot forward. Spin your body to the left, swinging right foot around a full 360° (or as close as you can) before putting it down again. (Your left foot acts as the axis of your turn.)
Once you get it, grab your hoop. Begin in Forward Stance position; give the hoop a counter clockwise spin. When it’s spinning parallel to the ground, support your weight on your left foot and use your right foot to power your spin; the momentum of the hoop should carry you around. Get right back into Forward Stance once you complete turn.

Halo: – Stand and grasp the hoop lightly in your right hand, palm facing down. Begin turning counter clockwise and slowly bring the hoop up over your head, flipping it over your thumb as you shift your hand so the fingers are pointing up. Use your hand to power the hoop in a back-and-forth motion: The hoop will alternate between hitting the centre of your palm and the back of your hand.
Be sure to keep your thumb extended, so the hoop doesn’t travel down your forearm.

Prayer Halo: – Begin spinning the hoop as in the basic Halo move. As the hoop moves around your right hand, raise your left hand and bring your palms together, as if praying. At this point, the contact points with the hoop will become the edges of your hands (by your pinkies and by your pointers). Be sure to keep both thumbs extended. As you get comfortable and want more of a challenge, add lunges or squats, try balancing on one foot, or just dance!

Walking: – Begin hooping in Forward Stance. Once the hoop is spinning parallel to the ground, take a small step forward each time you push against the hoop with the front of your hip. (The hoop will hit on alternating sides as you walk.) Once you feel comfortable, try walking faster. You can also walk backward (pushing against the hoop with your lower back) and take side steps (beginning in Side Stance and pushing with the sides of your waist).

Passing with Dips and Lunges: – Grasp the hoop lightly in your right hand, palm facing down. Begin swinging the hoop clockwise so the hoop is parallel to the ground. As you swing it around behind you, pass it to your left hand and bring it back around to the front. Continue to circle the hoop, passing it from one hand to the other.

Jump-Through:- Grab your hoop with your right hand and begin moving it in front of you in a figure-eight, going from side to side in a vertical plane. As the hoop crosses from right to left, duck your head and lift your knees as you step (or jump) through, twisting your wrist so your palm is facing you, then back around to the original position. Too challenging? Grab the top of the hoop with both hands and use it as a jump rope!

So basically it is fun plus workout.The goal is not only better fitness, but also improving the connection between your mind and body.  And as they say fitness is not about being better than someone else it’s about being better than you used to be.
