I have taken a number of swings and shot video to study my form. At first it was pretty ugly, but I think I'm getting the feel of it now. I'll be on vacation from work next week, and I intend to put in some quality time with the kettlebell and expand my exercises. Thus far I've only done the basic swing and the one-handed swings. I want to start working on the cleans and presses.
I'm still doing research into various diets. And by 'diet' I mean permanent eating habits, not "lose 10 pounds in 10 days" kind of stuff. I'll report on that stuff another time.
