Josh Henkin, and some great new exercise ideas for you:
Fantastic short video of the proper long cycle kettlebell technique, illustrating the double bump with the legs that is so tricky to master.
Great video from the Orange Kettlebell Club and fellow kb’ers Jason Dolby and John Wild Buckley showing an excellent training aid for learning the double kettlebell clean.
By isolating the arms, it brings your shifting centre of balance and hip movement much more into focus. Suggest you try this yourself!

Here’s an excerpt on the video from his site:
You are going to love this new DVD set! The DVD footage is from my last Level 2 Advanced kettlebell course in Las Vegas. People absolutely loved the course and could not get enough. Everyone stuck around after the course to ask questions which is a clear sign that they enjoyed the course thoroughly. The attendees had a blast learning new exercises such as ballistic work done outside of the feet. This gives an entirely new feel to standard exercises such as Double Swings, Double Cleans, Double Clean and Presses, and Doubles Snatches. You will have a really good time with these new variations. In addition the attendees really enjoyed all of the new core exercises, complex drills, and stacked kettlebell work!
In addition to the extensive training, I delivered a ninety minute lecture on hormone optimization. Hormone optimization is a rapidly growing field that people are starting to become very interested in. Whenever I talk about hormone optimization to anyone they immediately show a lot of interest and cannot stop asking questions. I have been professing the benefits of natural hormone optimization since 2004 and this lecture is my most detailed and comprehensive material to date. You will learn how to tweak your nutrition plan to optimize the three main players in hormone optimization. In addition you will learn what supplements work to increase testosterone, lower estrogen, and help with stress management. The hormone optimization lecture disc alone is worth the several times more than the asking price for the DVD set.

Nice blog post by Ken Blackburn on a whole heap of issues related to kettlebell lifting and achieving your goals- just hit the link above.
Great article written some time ago but still relevant today on the differences between the two methodologies. Informative and succinct, Steve Cotter walks you through the different styles and objectives and explains a lot of initial misunderstandings about these two popular paths.

Nice article in the New York Times on the benefits of exercising before breakfast during the festive season.
Apparently it helps to counter the detrimental effects of all that partying. Good news for the party animals out there- maybe…
