I’ve got bad news 😦 Previously I posted about how I really wanted to do 10 minutes of hula-hooping each day in order to lose weight from my stomach, but I’ve discovered that I am prone to ‘hoopers hip’!.
Despite the myriad of health benefits hula-hooping can provide, it messes with my hip joint and it can be quite painful. I have funny knees which I think may be contributing to the issue, but it basically means I’m going to have to find a different way of losing my stomach weight. I want healthy hips, I’m only 23!
I wanted to let you guys know because I’ve promoted hooping, so I don’t want you to follow my advice and then get painful joints! I know that many people don’t suffer with this problem, so what I would suggest is that you try hooping, and if you find it does hurt your hips, either reduce how often you do it, or find another form of exercise.
