I am starting to feel fanatic about this...but to me it was all about hoop size! I started summer 2011 to practice with a hoop that I thought was large - it was 42. And I practised and practised and practised.... and people told me I should hang in there, I would in the end get it, and I was adviced to try the other direction and yes, it felt a little better but still - it was four-six rounds and down... until january when I saw Shannons video when she wrote about "fluffy hoopers" and that she had started out with a really large (50) and soon after gone down to a 48¨which she used for the first year.
So I made a 50¨and lo and behod! Progress was coming! I could feel the difference at once. I is not fast, it took a day or two before I did 20 rounds but there is adifference in SOMETHING happening and absolutely nothing...I have a 48¨now and have started to try a 44¨, very hard!
So, with that handy son of yours I advice you to make him do a ridicoulusly lrage hoop and try it.
I have been practising - not like a maniac because I am not fit enough but ten minutes a day for more than half of the time since january and I can do one or two songs without dropping - that is about six minutes, in one direction. I am starting to progress in the other direction to - ten - twenty rounds. I am also starting to turn around while hooping, and I can manage to get it back up aroiund my waist if it has not sunk too low on the hips...
I was never able to hoop as a kid, if I can do it when going on 60 I am sure that you will get it too! But belive me, this is an area where size DOES matter..
