It is easy to feel like you literally have no time at all to take care of yourself around the holiday season. But we all know what happens when you are overworked and overindulged. Energy gets low, emotions get frazzled and you start to feel less than amazing.
Here are some quick hoop workouts that take 5 minutes or less and will have you feeling fabulous.
The 5 minute belly blast hula hoop workout is 5 moves in 5 minutes. So grab your hoop anytime you are feeling less than vibrant, excuse yourself from the festivities for 5 minutes and go and get your hoop glow on!
These 4 power moves with your hoop are designed for magnifying your core strength. Start off easy and build your way up to 1 minute per day to feel amazing results in your posture, fitness, strength and fat burning. Best of all, these are fun. Promise you will get a giggle out of this one.
What is this core strength they speak of and why do we need it anyway?
Well the core is that hugging group of muscles that all hang together around our back, side body, abdominals and hips. When strong and nurtured they are the muscles that are responsible for keeping us confidently upright, free of injury, clear of back pain and feeling strong.
Slouching, sitting, driving and too much chillaxing is ultimately going to lead to weakened muscles in the core.
Lucky for us as hoopers we have a fun way to build and maintain core strength. But not all hoop moves were born equal. This week we are doing a core drill using the 4 most powerful core strengthening moves.
They are not easy and require your full attention, deep breaths, aligned posture and a sense of booty bumping humour. With playtime you will be feeling much stronger but I highly recommend committing to this drill at least 5 times a week (that’s just 4 mins a day) for a month and see if you notice the benefits.
I am going to be doing this daily until 2016. Join me on Instagram @deannelovexo and #hooplovers #4hoopfun
Another incredible year has almost come to an end. So much rich and new learning, so many new friends and connections made and of course so much more time spent in the hoops. 2015 was the year that I stopped teaching regular weekly hoop classes and dedicated myself fully to sharing hoop love online.
