We just sent out a post this morning extolling the virtues of a single new habit that could add up to less muscle, more fat.

Try the Just Stand Up Calorie-Burn Calculator, which will show you both your daily calories burned in standing and sitting position. In tandem to our bathroom break exercise routine, we'd estimate we'd be moderately more fit with minimal effort if working in a standing position, even with hours behind the computer. Just imagine if the desk occasionally lowered to make you do squats...
