"I went (am kinda still going fending off?) that same thing. For me, it's been a combination of coming home exhausted with no energy to hoop, the mild seasonal depression that winter brings to so many, not having/dedicating time to things that…"

"I found that I use my left leg as the anchor and I push it out with my right leg ( I hoop to the left). Make sure your legs are close together and hoop is over your knees. AND don't try so hard if you get frustrated do another move until you…"

"When you make one leg do all the work, it can be exhausting. You can move the push to either leg, both legs or the legs as one unit. I explain it in this tutorial. (Once you do this, you'll probably find leg hooping easier than any other kind.…"

"I don't find that knee hooping tires me out, but I get fed up doing it! My problem is that I can't kick it back up and more recently I can't seem to keep the hoop above my knees....I've turned into a calf hooper :("

"If you get especially impatient before your bruises heal, you can tie scarves around your knees to pad them a little. I wouldn't hoop on the bruises themselves though, no use in injuring yourself further. Those are delicate tendons back there"

Profile Information

Do you teach hoop classes? *Please only answer 'yes' if you teach classes on a regular basis.
No
What year did you start hooping? (e.g. 2003)
2010
What is your goal for 2014 and why is it important? (Doesn't have to be hoop related.)
I've been getting a little frustrated with my hooping recently, even though I have managed to achieve so much, I would really like to learn more, but most importantly, to enjoy it as much as possible. I would also like to perform for friends at least once.
