Heart Rate hOOping

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Monday, September 23, 2013


This morning, I decided to head out to the park to do a little hooping. I was chained to my desk all last week and I needed to get out and see some blue sky. Lately, I've been wearing a heart rate monitor while I workout, so I can make sure I'm working hard enough (and not too hard, at the same time). Just for fun, and because I was curious, I wore a heart rate monitor while I hooped, just to see what would happen. It confirmed what I already knew--hooping can be really good cardio, if you push yourself hard enough. I ended up hooping for around 20 minutes, staying in the higher 70's-low 80's percentage of my target heart rate range. That's right where I am when I'm pushing myself on the elliptical too. Woo to my hoopy hoo.
And barrel rolls, yes, they will get you there.


Heart Rate hOOping is fun! Gasp, huff, puff :)

It's not too late to do something extra awesome this Monday. Spark ON, Brave Sparkers!

    LOVE your spirit and enthusiasm! I am also totally jealous of your hooping skills. I can only keep mine up for 8 seconds at a time.... sigh

    My chiropractor had a hoop in the office in August and if you tried you would get a balet for a contest. Every visit I tried..... the goal was 2 seconds. Oh my, I barely got my 2 seconds. I have no idea how you ever got this good, but I really admire you for your hooping skills. To say nothing of your enthusiasm. I always enjoy your blogs but thanks so much for sharing your workout with us. emoticon

    I think middle aged woman hoping by herself in the park is wonderful. If I saw it in person I would stop and watch and it would make me smile. I did think that the one part with it going around your neck might be hard on your neck though. You moved off of it pretty quickly I noticed. Really fun stuff here.

I hadn't realized how long it's been since we've seen any of your hooping action!! It was really great to see!!

Way to go on getting your heart rate up! I've thought of using the heart rate monitor to investigate that before, but never did get around to it. Now we know!!!

It certainly is the most FUN cardio by far!!

Way to go -- getting outside and totally enjoying your Mondays off!!

    I spent over two hours helping my aunt to carry and stack big lumps of wood this afternoon. It was hard work and my back hurt, my arms ached and it wasn't fun, BUT I was pleased throughout the two hard hours because I knew it was good calorie-burning exercise. emoticon

  Well, it's too late for me, since Monday is long gone, and Tuesday is almost over - and I have spent the majority of both days with my son in the hospital. But I can still enjoy your awesome adventures! Thanks for sharing. :-)
