I skipped learning verticals for MONTHS. I've been hooping for a year now and still haven't mastered them. The hoop is usually uneven...I need to get on that, ha!
AND I also just realized how more effective jumps are when jumping with the right leg...
Never bothered to learn the vertical step through either.
caroleena's youtube channel has a fantastic leg hooping tutorial, i struggled for months with leg hooping i just couldnt get it, but after watching her turtorial a few times i got it. She does more thn just show you she goes really int depth in explaining two methods of leg hooping: front to back hooper and side to hooper. For some reason once i undrstood the dffernce that makes in leg hooping it clicked after some practice lol!
