If you're not sitting, then the abdominal movements won't be your primary object. If you are meditating full-time, and not working or just relaxing at home, then your primary object will be either walking meditation (lifting, moving, dropping), or the movements of the limbs while doing daily activities such as washing, cleaning teeth, eating, washing dishes, etc.

Please read Practical Insight Meditation, where all of the basic exercises are explained in full.

I thought you were supposed to pick one thing to be your primary object?
