Hi! I just learned how to do it pretty ok last weekend. I tried with my hoop for weeks and could not for the life of me get it but then I met up with a group of hoopers and tried with a smaller/lighter hoop for a few hours until it finally worked.
Maybe the size if holding you back? Hope this helps.
I agree with Oceane.
I actually threw my hoop across the gym floor one night after becoming so frustrated with knee hooping. I was using a 44" inch super heavy hoop at the time. Once I switched to a 42", 100 PSI hoop it wasn't as painful and I was able to practice it more and more. I know everyone says it...and it seems like its not ever gonna happen...but its practice. It will just click.
Another thing, definitely try knee hooping in shorts or a mini skirt. I still have trouble bringing up the hoop from my knees in pants. Skin is STICKY!
I totally forgot that I was wearing a short skirt when it finally worked!
Great advice :D
So I tried with my 1/2" x 33" 160 psi hoops and they just feel to light. i have3/4 36" hoops at 100 psi that i find work slightly better.
In Safire's tutorial she says if you hoop to the left you want to push with your left leg. But I find it alot easier if i push with my right. Is that weird?
