First let me just say that I believe the fitness industry has confused people on the issue of how to lose weight hula hooping. Many people mistakenly think the heavier your hoop is, the more weight you will lose, and the big box stores don’t care how wrong that is.
These excessively heavy hoops can be painful to use, and can cause bruising to your abdomen and hips, not to mention damage your internal organs!
Simply put, excessively heavy hula hoops are not safe, and the industry has done a great disservice to the public by producing and hyping up these kinds of hoops.
Once you get above two pounds, the extra weight increases risk of injury and also shortens the length of time you will be able to work out with the hoop. The marathon is preferable to lose weight hula hooping because you will keep your heart rate up longer, thus burning more calories and improving your overall metabolism.
