A complaint I have been having is, I like physicality. I like (subject to caveats) embodiment—and frankly I suspect the cause of one of those caveats (body-wide owie) is insufficient exercise, which is to say, insufficient attention to my embodiment and physicality! I just. Time and cope, and weather outside my apartment (especially in summer and winter) and "Hurricane Alex has devastated the region" inside my apartment, and. Long story short, I spend most waking hours in one or another computer chair. As you might imagine, this is an undesirable situation.

For reasons I do not care to discuss outside lock, my cope has increased dramatically. (Shit I've literally procrastinated for a year and a half? Dealt with.) I wish therefore to try a practice of attention to physicality. And, hey. I cleaned my apartment! My living room and dining nook have a substantial open carpeted space now, so something like a YouTube video or channel that I could follow solo three mornings a week is an actual possibility!

Therefore: rec me exercise Youtubes?

I'm looking for something interesting enough to keep my attention over a span of time measured in weeks or greater, but basic enough that my (probable near-total) inexperience in the activity will not be a barrier. My priorities exercise-wise are, in order from the top, lung capacity, endurance, strength (full body), and flexibility.

I like to dance, but the only type I'm any good at is square dance; this is far too social an activity to work as my 3x/week solo morning exercise. I'm going to look for Irish dance exercise Youtubes later, though. I'm also going to try to get out to the city park to walk on the regular, but it isn't yet warm enough around here that I want to do that.

Thanks!
