How do you inflate it to the right size?
When you pump up your ball for the first time, don't be afraid to over-inflate it. Sit on it and adjust the level of inflation (by slightly deflating if required) to help you adjust the ball size to your height. Your knees should be at the same height as your hips, or slightly lower. To save time, you can inflate your ball using the Swiss Ball pump (sold separately).

The team's tip
We've swapped our office chairs for a Swiss Ball. The result: we've been working our abs and strengthening our backs each day, (almost) without realising it.In this case, feel free to adjust ball inflation in relation to your desk height. Your forearms must be horizontal, with an elbow angle slightly greater than 90-degrees.
