ROFL-I've tried Pogo'ing and it is indeed fun. Everyone got a huge kick out of my attempts-it's much harder than it looks. I've opted to stay off the Pogo stick so I don't break anything. ;)

Yes I can imagine it being harder than it looks. It is a balance thing. I can bike but trying the unicycle is another balance thing to do and looks hard. I can give it a try and if it does not work out, I will stick with hulahooping and jumproping.

Have you tried jumproping? My husband just started it and it's hilarious to watch him try to jump rope. The girls and I are having a ball with it. lol

I've seen that Jedi workout and thought about checking it out. I too am into martial arts (along with my children) and will be starting weapons training soon and wondered what kind of a workout it would be.


I do Tae Kwon Do-what form do you study?

Oooh yes, I have been doing that. I also hulahoop. Hug's suggested that idea and got me thinking last yr to try it. Hulahoop was hard because I never did it before. Took me a whole month to finally get the right motion. I did start with one hoop and by Dec, hooped with 2. In Feb hooped with 3, now I am hooping with 4. They are not separated, I taped them for the weight. I tried the Pogo yesterday, but it does not spark me. I will stick with jumproping and hulahooping.

lol Wow-you're up to 4 hulas? That's fantastic. I've tried and tried and just can't get the motion going.

It was hard work for me for the hoop.
