In a butt drop, the wrestler lands on the chest of his opponent, by using his butts. This move is used by many wrestlers to pin the opponent. In an elbow drop, the wrestler falls onto his opponent in such a way that his elbow comes in contact with the opponent's chest or shoulders. This is a counter-attack move used by wrestlers against a charging opponent. The wrestler strikes the opponent with the back of his elbow. It is sometimes used as a surprise move. In this move, the wrestler runs towards his opponent and hits him with his upper chest, with the intention of knocking him to the ground. Don’t forget about the top of your feet! You’ll likely want some corn pads to reduce friction and rubbing on the surface of your toes. Toe sleeves and caps can also help, as they cover the entire toe, and can often be trimmed to fit any type of shoe or toe. A gel sockette can cover all of your toes, including the surfaces and underneath the bottoms of your toes, giving you relief from pressure, friction, and providing extra cushion beneath the ball of the foot. Your doctor might tape your toes or have you wear a splint to keep them in the right position if they are still flexible. Good walking shoes should not put pressure on your feet. Even features as subtle as a seam or a small detail can create friction or pressure on your foot that can lead to hot spots, blisters or minor injuries. Look for walking shoes that provide a “soft fit”. The fabric should be smooth against your foot and pliable.
