  • Stand up and then sit for 30-second increments.
  • Put your hands on the arm rests and lift yourself off the seat for 30 seconds at a time.
  • Stand behind your chair and do lateral leg lifts.
  • Put your feet on the seat, hands on the ground and do push-ups.
  • Extend yours legs in and out, crunching your abs.
