Agree with dr. E and dr.G about walking and stretching.
Prevent computer/tech stiffness by varying your activities every 20-30 minutes. Don't be glued to the screen. Easy stretches to do at your desk can be found at: http://myappleaday.Com/?P=914 good luck. Be well.

In brief: Walk

Walking is a good way to warm up stiff muscles.
Stretching is good to do once your muscles are warmed up.

In brief: Walk

Walking is a great beginning exercise and provides many of the same benefits as more vigorous exercises.
It allows you to start slow and build without injury or soreness, yet you get the cardiovascular benefit.
