I have seen and met way more left current hoopers so I would assume that's more common. It's far more common in gymnastics, figure skating, diving etc for people to twist left as well.
I am a righty though.
Well, mine's left! I think it has to do with my muscles on the right being more dominant. Like how I balance better on my left leg, but that's more because holding up my left leg is more difficult than my right.
I hoop to the right or clockwise! I think it's so cool how each person feels the hoop differently.. I couldn't imagine myself spinning to the left comfortably, not yet at least!
yea same with me..I couldn't imagine myself spinning to the right comfortably!
its really for a personal thing...i dont think theres more one or the other. which ever way is more natural for you is your first current...and the opposite is your second. but ive seen so much of both, that its really hard to say which is more common...
You will usually feel more comfortable going one direction than the other. A lot of the people I have met are naturally left current but I will usually ask before exchanging hoop tricks with people so I am catering to thier current when I explain and not just assuming.
Ideally you should be able to hoop comfortably in both directions with enough practice
Yea I my natural current is to the left. I noticed that the more I hoop the harder it gets to hoop in my right current. I need to make it a point to practice in both directions. It's especially hard for me to shoulder hoop to the right.
oh man shoulder hooping to the right is soooo hard!!!! ive been working on that one for almost a year...and its still a challenge!!!! BUT like all other hooping obstacles...CHALLENGE ACCEPTED!!!!
Try hooping in your non dominant current and when you start to feel it slip break and reverse the hoop. Once you get it going the other way break and reverse back to your non dominate. Rinse, lather, repeat until you get the hang of it
I hoop to zee left as well!! But seriously practicing in my "out-flow" has helped me improve as an over all hooper for sure. I highly suggest learning both ways! Gives you balance.
