I like the idea of standing up for a break occasionally. It's completely flat here so I rarely stand on a bike but this morning I tried it outdoors for a couple hundred feet after about 35 minutes of biking. I think it helped. Standing on the trainer felt really awkward but next time I'm on it I'll try again. Thanks for the good idea!
There's the issue! Try a snug-fitting pair of biking shorts with a decent pad. This is a personal as a seat choice, so start with a good brand and go from there. I've had really good luck with the Specialized RBX Pro shorts. Decent price, and very comfortable.
