    Default egyptian isolated hip circle

    This is one killer circle. I can really feel this in my abs. Since I am not using legs at all in this small circle. Doing the big circle is such a relieve after this one. I cant imagine having to do many reps on this to get up strenght on it. It will take my belly way down working on it, or kill me, not sure which will come first.

    This was one exercise I totally forgot about when I took classes way back. I will have to work hard on it just to get my waist back. Another exercise to pratice with house work.

    as a matter of interest - which circle do you do without using your legs?

    Jenc,

    The title of this thread is the name of the circle as I know it. One does it from core ab muscles not using legs. I am doing egyptian style so it is worked different than the other style like American, Turkish ect. It is a small circle just done with hips not really going beyond shoulders.

    Oh yes, they're quite odd when you start doing them, aren't they?

    Although I teach a DANCE class, I know a lot of students sign up hoping for some type of "workout" so I try to give tips along the way on how they can use the dance for exercise. This is one of my favorite core strengthening exercises The way I teach it, you're really using and isolating the obliques, with the help of the gluteus medias and low abs. If you really FOCUS on the movement and concentrate on it, it can be a GREAT toning exercise!

    I have a personal preference TOWARDS movements that create dynamic tension in my core. I know it's arguably not quite the most Egyptian technique, but when I can dance and really feel those muscles being active, it adds a whole new depth of feeling for me. Yum!

    Hey Nebetmiw, try doing these SUPER slow, really feeling the abdominal muscles working and getting warm all the way around the perimeter of the circle. It's a delicious feeling!

    I'm puzzled - I use my legs to some degree doing all hip circles. - or do you mean that they don't drive it. If I try to leave my legs out my hips don't move!
