Move in the picture – Not sure what it’s called, but it is actually quite a simple but pretty move. Just have to make sure that the top leg stays high up. To get into this, choose a leg that you want to hook on at the top, and depending on which leg is chosen, when inverting you want the opposite hand to be positioned a little wider away from the normal inverted position. Once the leg is hooked on, think about the same hand to the higher leg to the middle of the bottom bar of the hoop beside your head with your elbow pointing to the centre. Your free hand should hold on to the back of the free leg, and the free leg should extend as if you wanted it to kick back. This should help the hip sink under the bar of the hoop. Then extend the top leg.
On the subject of healthy eating so far. I suck at it. The only thing I have managed to change is that for breakfast I am having alpro vanilla yoghurts, and fresh tropical juice (not from concentrate). I haven’t eaten any veg, and I’m still eating quite a bit of pasta. Though my rice, and pasta have transferred to wholegrain stuff.
However, these small changes I have noticed a difference in myself. My energy levels are lasting longer, so I’m not having to nap or feel sluggish through the day. Plus friends, and relatives have been catching colds, and little bugs I have managed to avoid picking up so far.
With exercise it is important to eat healthy, it reduces the risk of injuries, and illness. Especially for the kind of sport that I do. If I ran out of energy while in the middle of a move that involves me being upside down, or something happens that turns me dizzy while off the ground, I could fall and cause myself a lot of unnecessary injuries. Healthy foods would help prevent that so it would keep my body in top condition to function. As well as my immune system would be better to prevent or fight off illness.
If you’re anything like me, an exercising fiend that joins in with most physical activities, because it is really fun. But you don’t eat healthy, but that’s alright because it hasn’t affected anything before. Well… it will, it will catch up to you eventually.
