Hooping is a rapidly growing exercise fad that involves working out with a hula hoop. Using a hula hoop is a little bit different from the classic hula hoops you may remember from when you were a kid. Weighted hoops are what is used for exercise purposes and weigh in around 2 pounds.

Hooping has many benefits that even regular cardio may not provide including:
• Enhancing spinal flexibility and movement
• Improving coordination of the torso
• Gently massaging your intestines and organs as it circles around your body
• Providing a thorough cardio workout focusing on strengthening of the core muscles

Hooping generally is used for toning up the midsection but can also be used to tone the arms and legs. It can provide an all over toning session with mega cardio benefits and can definitely add some excitement to an otherwise boring exercise session.
