Ok I’ve watched a video in technique and tried this way round, that way round, this foot forward, that foot forward and think I’ve got my optimal direction and stance. I’ve managed about 20 seconds a couple of times.

You’ll soon get the hang of it. It “clicks” once you get the right rhythm. I haven’t yet, but managed it a few years ago.

I have progressed already :-)
On a good spin I can last about 60 spins. No idea what time that equates to though!

You'll soon be walking round the garden, hooping as you go, ET :)

I can’t even move my arms without dropping the hoop, I don’t see how moving my legs is going to happen!!

That sounds good. Shame I’m on holiday and my hoop is a few hundred miles away.

Got something to say?
