Anytime anywhere exercises
I was trying to compile a list of *anytime anywhere* exercises that can help improve the game. I went through the previous threads and here are some that I found:
1. Wrist training: wrist curls with a bottle of water, Rolling rods, Kneading dough!, ...
3. Footwork (find an empty piece of ground, imagine a court and move!)
4. Stretching exercises to keep the body flexible
Anything else that comes to mind?

if you feel like anoying the living daylights out fo the people around you: exercise your fingerpower:
lay your hand flat on the floor/table/desk and try and smack one finger as hard/fast a possible onto the floor/desk/etc.
or, the anti-neigboor tactic, bets used in hoems that are adjacent to other houses: indoor rope-skipping
with loud music

Walk every once in a while on your toes, this need not appear awkward, just use more pressure on the toes.

squeezing small sponge or rubber balls in the palm of your hand. Just don't do it when your hands are in your pockets or you might get arrested!

Step up and down a chair
Jump side ways pushing from left to right and back

Let's also mention "why" a particular handy exercise can help. So stepping up and down a chair helps develop calf muscles? And how does jumping sideways help? maybe in improving court coverage and speed.

sevens, I think that jumping exercise does help develop both muscle endurance and power -- I think it's a plyometric exercise (pertaining to jumping sideways). Take case not to roll the ankles!
Squats are very good for the leg muscles in the front, but I'm afraid that I don't have equalizing exercise for the rear leg muscles - might cause problems later on due to unequal muscle strength?

sucking in your abdominals and holding. Strengthens your pelvic wall. Can actually do this anywhere anytime.
