| THE EDGE: Coordination, Core Strength & Mobilized Hips
| EXERCISE & PROP: Hip Mobilization with the Weighted Exercise Hoop
Flip, tuck, roll, and twist!
Gymnasts rely on deep core strength and the ability to synchronize and manipulate their upper and lower quadrants in precise, high-velocity movements.
The Weighted Exercise Hoop can help strengthen the obliques, mobilize the hips, and coordinate the upper and lower body while challenging balance and stamina.
WHAT TO DO:
1. Stand inside the hoop with your feet a bit wider than shoulder-distance apart, holding the hoop against your lower back.
2. Keeping your pelvis stable, shoulders squared, and chest lifted, bend your knees slightly and give the hoop a good counter clockwise spin around your waist, making sure it's level.
3. Rock your hips from side to side (or front to back) so the hoop rotates around the your waist. The more power you put into each push, the faster the hoop will go.
Repeat, rotating the hoop in a clockwise direction.
