    Haha, I need to go some deskerxise too... doing work experience sitting in front of a computer all day is so fustrating!
    Umm... try clenching your bum?
    Or squat over your chair so you aren't actually touching it?

    Both of those make me look stupid but if you're on your own it doesn't matter I suppose :P

    If it was that simple then everyone would be slim. Its a myth you can do anything of value at your desk unless you sit on an exercise bike or something similar.

    Masturbating would just make you look silly... obviously you do this more sensible exercise instead:

    I definitely need to master the art of deskercise, sitting at work 12 hours a day is sapping my potential to be hench.

    I tap my legs all day and clench my ass.

    It honestly does nothing for me. I suppose you can take a regular walk around the office or up stairs every few hours and take a nice walk at lunch?

    You need some rig set up where, at a moments notice, you can swing down under your desk and then bench the whole thing.
    If that was too easy you could put weights in all the drawers

    How one would construct such I do not know :sad:

    Get one of those desks you stand up at.

    Not much else you can do that's really any good.
    If possible get away from your desk every hour and walk around a bit, if there are any stairs run up them. It'll give you exercise and make you look as if you're important and need to be somewhere urgently.

    Exercise your fingers - up, down, up, down. Ha.

    If your life entails sitting at a desk 8 hours a day your going to have to take some "me" time in evenings or weekends to be getting the proper healthy exercise.

    Drink plenty of water during the day, so many people dont do this, it triggers fat burning, dont eat sugary snacks when your bored and keep a good posture. All these things are little steps to prevent lots of problems, not directly related to losing weight but hey, facts are your not going to lose much weight sitting on a chair! Try a powerball or something like that, looks cool and works out the hands and forearm, providing stress relief and helping your joints! If you work it fast enough (10000rpm) you'll soon break a sweat

    If you're sitting on a chair with wheels, twist your hips from side to side.
    It might make you look a little silly, or just like a little kid.
