Jessica Simpson at the Sagebrush Cantina in Calabasas. (Pacific Coast News)more pics Fitness Magazine asked celebrity trainer Harley Pasternak about how stars keep in such killer shape. Pasternak explained that she uses a stability ball to work with Jessica Simpson.
Jessica works with a ball to sculpt her legs, back or stomach and also to work on overall balance and athleticism.
If you're thinking about giving stability balls a try, here are a few tips to help you get started:
- Select a ball that's the right size for you, based on your height. If you're under 5'1", go for a 'small' 45 centimeter ball. If you're over 5'7", then opt for one of the 'large' 65 centimeter balls. Otherwise stick with 'medium', in the 55 centimeter range.
- Don't over-inflate the ball - at least when you're getting started. The ball should have a little give so that you can sit on it comfortably. As you get stronger, add more air in order to make the workout more difficult.
