I do leg extensions, wall push ups, calf raises, standing hip abductions, downward dog, etc while at work.
It's so easy to slip in these short exercises while on the phone. You don't need any special equipment or much room to do them. I find it's a great way to stay energized and focused through out the day.

I chose these over the shape-ups because I read reviews that said they were hard to stand still in.
