indispensible for life.
The magnets of Magnetic Health Hula Hoop will help to increase the effect by producing an additional magnetic

How To Hula Hoop
To start, stand with one foot in front of the other. You’ll get best results if you rock backwards and forwards
as opposed to side to side. Begin by holding the hula hoop at waist level so it is touching the center of your
back, then start the hula hoop spinning with a gentle push from both hands and begin rocking from one foot to the
other to keep it in the air. It’s a good idea to practice rotating the hula hoop in both directions to work muscles
on both sides of the body evenly.
Expect a few clumsy practice sessions during the first few days and don’t worry if hula hooping feels awkward at
first. If you stick with it, all of a sudden, a fluid hula rhythm will click and you’ll be able to go for hours.
The hula hooping motion is great exercise.
If the main goal is to burn calories, tighten core muscles, and get an aerobic workout, stick with the standard
waist and hip-level hula hooping for the entire session. A couple days of sore leg and stomach muscles are a given
for those new to exercising with a hula hoop.
For variety, work out your arm and leg muscles. Videos and hula hooping classes teach fun tricks and complicated
moves, but the basics are enough to keep you busy and in shape.

History of the Hula Hoop
Throughout history, the hula hoop has been used in various cultures for a number of purposes. In ancient
Greece, citizens used the hula hoop as a form of exercise. In Egypt around 3,000 years ago, hoops made
out of grape vines were propelled around the ground with sticks.
Native Americans used hoops as a target for teaching accuracy for hunting. The word "hula" was added
in the early 18th century as sailors who visited Hawaii noticed the similarity between hula dancing and tripping hoops.
Plastic hula hoops were first manufactured and sold in Australia.
In 1957, Coles department store sold bamboo hoops, but the supplier couldn't produce enough to meet demand. So they
invited Alex Tolmer, the founder of Toltoys, to produce plastic ones. Toltoys sold 400,000 plastic hoops in 1957.
In 1958, Melin and Knerr of Wham-O started to market hula hoops in the USA, selling 100 million over that summer.
The craze lasted from January to October, then suddenly died. In only four months, an estimated 80 to 100
million of them were sold in 1958. Hula Hoops became famous all over the world. According to study conducted by the
American Council on Exercise, hula hooping would burn around 200 calories in a day if you work out for half an hour.
Hula Hooping has been classified as an aerobic exercise that would increase the flexibility and strength of one's body. It is
considered as a low-intensity workout for most people. One of the fun and creative ways to lose weight is by hula hooping.
