It’s the holidays, which means you’re probably guzzling down food, and hopping from leg to leg trying to get your jeans on, but I have the perfect solution to battle the holiday gut. An almost endless source of free exercise videos, Youtube (although my normal solution is usually to eat a carrot and do five squats). I recently started doing yoga through a video series on Youtube called 30 Days of Yoga, and it got me thinking about how many free exercise videos there are on Youtube right at our fingertips, perfect for shy and reclusive people like me. You can learn new exercises without ever having to leave your house or interact with people. If you search through Youtube you can find plenty of exercise videos to try, but I’ve selected some (linked below) that I felt were worth checking out. Happy sweating!

I have this intense desire to train like I’m in the military with a drill sergeant in my face screaming at me, except that I would prefer for it to be in my own home through a video, so I can cry in privacy if I like. Unfortunately there isn’t anyone screaming in my face in this video, but it will do.
