Put on tight fitting clothes
Before performing an exercise of any kind, it is ideal to put on athletic clothes. You will be unable to use the hula hoop without wearing tight clothes, as it will get stuck time and again, which can be quite irritating.
Place the hula hoop on ground
Once you have put on the right clothes, place the hula hoop on the ground and step inside it. If you are a beginner, it is ideal to use a larger hoop otherwise you will find it difficult to perform the exercise.
Grab the edges of the hoop
Bend down and grab the edges of the hoop with both hands. Make sure your hands are apart at a clear distance from each other.
Bring the hoop at waist level
Raise the hoop upwards and bring it to your waist level. At this moment, you should ensure that you have gripped the hoop tightly with both hands.
Spin the hoop
Start spinning the hoop now. You have to do it clockwise, if you are a right hander and do the opposite, in case you are a lefty.
Move your waist in circular motion
In order to spin the hoop, you have to continue moving your waist and hips in a circular motion. Try doing so swiftly in order to perform the activity smoothly.
Continue practicing until you master the trick
Practice brings perfection, so you should continue repeating the process in order to achieve perfection. You will find it a bit difficult in the initial phases, but you will start getting better with the passage of time.
