Yes, your not moving quickly enough. Waist hoop with your heavy hoop then waist hoop with your light hoop... feel the difference... Your smaller lighter hoop has a faster rotation speed than your bigger heavier hoop. I personally think smaller hoops are better on the joints and veins in the legs. You did down sizes rather fast, if anything you should of got a 36'' at the smallest. 1-2 inches really makes a difference. Try getting a 125 psi pvc hoop in a size 36 or 37'' to practice with instead of getting another led hoop. They are cheaper, and you can easily make one. Slowly work your way down to your led hoop.
smaller hoops are better larger hoops will bruise ur legs horribbly
i forced myself to downsize too quickly becuase i overcompensated for my hatred of my massive heavy fire hoop and got one that was way to small, i could work with it but leg hooping was definately a problem. I made a practice hoop and kept gradually cutting it down. In the meantime with your LED i would try to figure some good transitions to get out of leg hooping rather than shimmying it back up. 36" isnt THAT much of a jump, and after spend a little time working with a more gradual downsizing/acclimating , you will probably find the big to large and unwieldy - the tubing is heavier+ the added led weight. Give it a little while and if you still feel that way over time, go bigger.
Yeah girl you've just got to shake your ass a little faster with a lighter hoop.
with smaller hoops you have to hoop faster, the smaller the faster. But good news is, with a smaller lighter hoop, they bruise your legs less when knee hooping, just keep practicing and you'll get used to the new weight and size
