I know you might be rolling your eyes thinking “hey isn’t that just for kids?” well hear me out before you make your decision. See, workout researcher Lars Donath from the German Sport University in Cologne says that Hula Hooping can actually strengthen your hips, back, and stomach while also minimalising the risk for injuries as well.
Donath also added saying “studies has indicated that in a span of a week or two, hula hooping has indeed increased core strength and endurance, as well as noticeably reducing lower abdominal fat. Plus, it also helps with coordination.”
For those of you who are inclined to give hula hooping a go, Donath advices that you should start with 10 to 15 minutes daily and slowly progress on over to interval training where you will be hula hooping for 30-45 seconds and then taking a 10 second break followed by another 30-45 second session for about 15 sets.
