But I am very curious as to if I'm just unfortunate or if there are other lady hoopers out there who find they can't chest hoop or do any tricks on the chest because of their.. generousness.
I just have the absolute worst luck when it comes to chest hooping, and I don't know if I'm just not doing it right, haven't given it enough practice, or what :( I can only get the hoop to spin just below my chest or just above it on my armpits, but it hurts and I can't do it for very long.
I found that when I spin very fast and hoop on my chest it works for a second, but it either slips or it begins to hurt.
Am I just going to have to deal with this and live with not chest hooping? lol or is there any advice anyone could possibly give me, or at least someone out there who can relate and has this problem too?
I have a pretty small chest and learning to chest hoop was the most painful thing and it was really difficult, I found my hoop was just way too heavy, it was causing a lot of bruising everywhere. Switching to a lighter hoop helped me a lot. My DD friend learned how to chest hoop a lot faster than I did,
It also just takes practice and patience, it took me awhile to learn how.
Not sure if you already know this trick but try turning with the hoop while you're learning.
Thank you guys so much :D yeah, I'm a DD too. I suppose I just haven't put enough time and patience into it.
I just moved to a smaller and lighter hoop about a week ago, I haven't tried many tricks with it just yet, have been getting used to the feel of it and practicing my easiest tricks.
I've tried spinning with it to give it momentum, I'll keep up with that and see how it helps :)
Ya i always laugh when people say.....well of course you can chest hoop as if its my chest keeping up the hoop......This never impeded my learning curve at all however i have always usied light weight Pixie Hoop Skinnies & now all my favorite hoops are PPro hoops which are super ligjht but i am now skilled enough to use them for all techniques for the most part which is challenging if your just starting....
Keep practicing! you'll get it. my friend has hugge ones and got chest hooping down before i did!
Try a bigger hoop and a sports bra :)
I'm not sure i quite understand where you are trying to hoop but i was under the impression that usually when chest hooping was just above the boobs near the armpits. I think that is pretty normal. Also it does take a lot of practice.
I'm a 32G and haven't had a problem with them. If anything, I think they help. If you're in pain, your hoop may be too heavy. In the beginning, I used a giant hoop and always wore a sports bra (just as mentioned by Shasta above). You'll get it if you keep practicing! :D
When i learnt to chest hoop, it was probably the hardest trick aside from picking up the hoop from the knees up. Be patient... look through different tutorials... some may indicate that another one may not have. Just be patient and keep practicing and eventually it will come to you!
The way I learnt how to chest hoop was that your hoop is hitting 4 points of your body (chest, left shoulder, back and then right shoulder) instead of 2 points which we're usually used to with waist hooping. (hope that made sense) :)
Good luck and happy hooping!
No problem. Glad to help :)
I have D's and I thought I would never be able to. For 2 years I didn't even try after on afternoon of trying and not succeeding. I just thought my curves were too much to keep it on a straight plane. One day about 6 months ago, I just decided I was going to do it. It took me two months. Two months of side boob bruises and frustration. But I finally got it. I am even not too bad going in the opposite direction.
You will get it! Definitely a sports bra! Imagine making a circle with your chest making sure you hit the the 4 points Sasha mentioned. Just doing that motion without the hoop is good practice and gets you in the motion needed to keep it up. Stick your chest way out with a big breath, slowly move to whatever side you hoop to, really round that back and then finish moving to that opposite side hitting that final and fourth point. Make as a pronounced circle with your chest movement as you can! I never realized how weak my back muscles were until I started doing this. This has even helped my with posture since I tended to slouch from a heavy chest.
Also When I first started out I I looked really strange because I really started pushing hard on the back push where you round out your back. So I had my arms out in front and made them a part of that hard push. if that makes sense. I looked really goofy but it really helped me to focus on pushing in that part of my body that was the weakest part. So arms forward and the back really really curved and arched outward like a cat and then arms arms way back and back arched inward and chest really far out is a good exercise to get those muscles and he movement into shape. Man I hope that made sense!
You will do it!
Ladies, there is no such thing as a DD bust. Cup size is relative to band size, so a 28DD is much smaller than a 34DD. You might want to read this: http://www.hoopcity.ca/forum/topics/almost-everything-about-bras
