I’ve only heard rumors about this until I actually saw it in our local newspaper.
People have actually developed “hula hoop” workouts. Well, it was in the newspaper, so it has to be true, right? Check out this article from the Des Moines Register -- http://tinyurl.com/yzjg8wm.
Getting serious about this for a moment – yes, a hula hoop workout sounds a little silly, but think about all of the great muscles you exercise using the hoop. Abdominal, obliques, glutes, quads and then some are all getting good work with this exercise.
Alternative workouts have been a theme for me lately, so I’ll keep passing them along. Some things work well for some people. As we are more limited here in the Midwest as colder weather approaches, it’s sometimes good to explore some new indoor alternatives.
