If you're starting out fresh, you don't need much more than the right tire for you, a little space and a desire.
It's best to wear something tight. In the beginning, I usually took off my shirt and practiced on bare skin, because the thinner/tighter the layer between the skin and the tire, the better you can control the tire. Make sure you have a firm footing, tense your stomach as tightly as you can and try to swing the tire as horizontally as possible to the ground.
My start was anything but easy.
It took me over three months for the previously cursed tire to even stay up for a few laps. I really pushed him into the corner a lot. But the motivation to do it at some point remained. Thank God. After my third pregnancy I had incredible problems with my pelvic floor. And since I had once heard that Hula Hoop could strengthen the pelvic floor, that was exactly the reason why I didn't give up. I thought: If I can't lose weight, I can at least strengthen my pelvic floor. And lo and behold: I managed both with the tire. I lost 20 kg and strengthened my pelvic floor again. Well if that's not a reason to stick with it, then I don't know what is.
To start with, it's important to work up slowly so that your skin can get used to the intensive massage effect. Think in small steps. You don't have to manage to hustle through half an hour straight away. Be happy about five minutes too. That's why I have the point here: reward. Think of small rewards that you can use to make yourself happy.
For example: Your favorite drink | Relax for 30 minutes | bathe | save five euros | a long walk
Whatever you want. When you complete a time five times, reward yourself.
Use it as motivation to continue practicing and to slowly improve.
I have two versions of a template for you here. For your cell phone in 16:9 and also for printing yourself in DinA4. To start with, it's important to build up slowly so that your skin can get used to the intensive massage effect of the tire. CHANGE STARTS WITH YOU
CHANGE OF DIRECTION & LEG MOVEMENT
Most people find hulling in one direction much easier. Nevertheless, it is very important to load the body evenly. If you constantly hull in one direction, the muscles may become more pronounced on one side. But you can counteract this with simple exercises. In most of my workouts we move our legs while humping. This is difficult at the beginning. In addition to the better training effect, it is simply fun and the tire can be integrated into everyday situations. So you can combine Hullern with many things.

HULLING ON THE HIP
Normally the contact of the tire occurs at the waist. This should be mastered in both directions. When humping on the hips, the pelvic floor, buttocks and thigh muscles are trained more intensively. The tire also gently massages the area around the sciatic nerve. This stimulates blood circulation and metabolism. This can relieve tension and adhesions.
The pleasant change prevents suffering in the lower back and can help those affected to make their lives more worth living. If you already have problems, you should consult your doctor or therapist in advance.
