Hula hooping is a favorite childhood pastime for thousands of people. But, long gone are the days of simply spinning around and around in circles until your hips are sore and your ab muscles are strong. Now, people have pioneered countless hoop tricks that are breathtaking, fun, and easy enough to try at home! Read on to find out more!


Hula hooping usually takes place at the waistline, but not with this hoop trick! To begin, move your hoop down to your knee area. Move your knees in a similar motion to as what you would do with your hips, and be sure to keep the balls of your knees held close together!

Hopping Transfer

Start with your hula hoop on your waist as normal, but then start hopping up and down to work the hula hoop down to your knee area. This is a great one to try once you’ve tackled the knee knocker! For some tips, watch this video on YouTube.

Ring Around the Rosie
