Any AB workouts for office?

Hey guys

Are there any Ab excercises that could be done sitting at the desk or standing...... I am stuck in the office for 8 hours a day and If I can get any Ab work in it would be great.

I was told by a Physical Therapist to pull in and tighten my stomach several times a day and it would tone my lower ab as well as strengthen my back.

In one of my gym classes, we do something called the standing crunch, but it can be done sitting down too. All you do is contract your abs like you were doing a crunch, and then repeat.
