Harley Pasternak says that the Jessica Simpson started out easy at first. Then, they would kick up the cardio over time. Harley says:

Our first workouts were approximately 30-45 minutes long and included a 5-10 minute cardio warm up, 20-30 minutes of resistance training and flexibility, followed by 5-10 minutes of cardio cool-down. We kept the movements simple. No gymnastics. No Olympic-style lifting. Some days we focused on shoulders, the back of her thighs, and the front of her midsection.

Jessica Simpson Workout Diet Harley Pasternak

If Jessica Simpson has time, they will extend the cardio cool-down into a full-blown workout. Her trainer, Harley Pasternak, likes to set the incline on the treadmill to 8, to give Jessica a challenge that tones her legs and butt.

On other days, Harley would work different parts of Jessica Simpson’s body. He would also have Jessica Simpson do a lot of walking when she wasn’t in the gym. Harley Pasternak says:

Other days we would target the back of her arms, inner thighs, and the sides of her midsection. I suggested Jess start walking each day. I gave her a pedometer and realistic daily goals of 4,000 steps, then 5,000, and within weeks she was doing 10,000 steps a day.
