Yoga is good, they even have Yoga videos geared towards people who ride.

Jogging/running. Sitting on that stupid inflatable ball instead of a chair. Rowing/paddling. Crunches. Planks. Crunches on that stupid inflatable ball.

Huggging that stupid inflatable ball. Having a nice dinner with that stupid inflatable ball. Taking it to bed with you, and having that stupid inflatable ball with you when you look in the mirror, so you can say to yourself, "At least I don't look like that stupid inflatable ball".

Guys, it's really not that bad. I prefer that over doing it on the ground as I have major tailbone issues.
