For any fellows here who work at a desk, I was curious what stretching or exercise routines you do during the day, since being stagnant in front of a desk isn't really all that healthy.

I'm not a fan of mixing exercise and office work. You won't be seeing me on one of those goofy-ass desk treadmills.

Use your lunch hour.  You can eat in 15 minutes.  That leaves 45 to do something meaningful.  If your office has a gym, it's pretty easy.  Otherwise, head outdoors and get some cardio.

Good advice, though I was thinking more along the lines of stretching or exercises one can do while sitting at their desk to avoid remaining stagnant for too long.

I usually take a 30 minute walk on my lunch break and try to get up and move around every hour or so.

I also run after work or go to the gym. Just try to be as active as possible.

When I was "chained to the desk," I set a timer to go off every hour.  Then I got up, and took a walk around the office space.  My office was open plan, with a corridor between cubicles that ran around the floor.  About a five minute walk every hour.

Personally I'm working through the startup program called foundation.
They all are theme workouts and it's free.  The body weight exercises can be done most places.
