I have gotten pretty good at bringing my hoop up from just above my knees back to my waist, but sometimes if it falls to my knees, I can't get it back up. My LED hoop actually hurts the sides of my legs on either side of my knees, so getting the extra momentum to bring it back up will leave bruises, so I need an alternative 'out'. I know I have seen in videos that there are other ways to bring your hoop up with your hands, but every time I try, it ruins my flow. I have tried doing the same movement with my arm as you would to bring the hoop from your waist to lasso, (hand flat in the small of your back, grabbing the hoop when it rolls across your back and bringing your elbow followed by hand up above your head), but this never works from the knees. HELP! Is there a way to step out of it or grab it without halting your flow and having to restart?
Wait a minute! Knee hooping isn't done on the knees?! I've been trying to shimmy the hoop up from my knees for months, but I can pretty much effortlessly shimmy it up from my thighs. When I am knee hooping, the hoop is hitting parallel to the top of my knee cap and to the side. Is this the correct spot for knee hooping or should it actually be lower thigh?
(Please pardon my beginner-ness!)
From what I've been told, you should NEVER hoop on your knee because it can damage your knee. They are fragile and it sucks to be in constant pain because of them (I should know). Knee hooping is on the thigh.
