Today I want to cover "resting techniques" to use during the GS work out. Since the goal of the competitive kettlebell lifter is to post high numbers. It is critical for you to understand where and how to "rest" during your lifts.
These are not perfect, but they are techniques that most people will be able to use.
I will cover the three most common: 1) Rest on one elbow. 2) Rest on your chest. 3) Rest on top.
Let's talk about resting on one elbow: The very first thing you need to understand is which one is right for you or for your student (if you are trainer or simply trying to help someone). Usually the one elbow rest is used by those who cannot reach their hips with their both elbows and keep their knees locked and relaxed thighs at the same time to recover. A lot of GS competitors cannot rest the elbows on their hips because of the structure of their body. This can be due to excess weight across the stomach or perhaps a long torso. Sometimes you can't reach your hips for lack of flexibility in your upper back and it usually comes to you later.

It is obvious that in the current fast paced world a good number of people really don't have the time or else go to the trouble to take care of themselves competently. By far the most dominant of this particular group of people are women. Women of all ages now hold down a full time job, continue to undertake household duties, as well as care for the youngsters.
Within all of these obligations little attention often gets given to eating adequately and caring for themselves. When it comes to these kind of situations, nutritional supplements for women turn out to be a crucial aspect for her to get the exact nutrients which the body needs and the woman doesn't have time to take through foods.

Through spending years in health and fitness industry, with a significant portion of the time dedicated towards understanding what does and doesn't work, you will come to a certain realization. Some might even call this realization an epiphany, as it is the key to success in every aspect of our lives, not only fitness. Personally, through years of observing people, perhaps similar to you; I have grown tired, increasingly empathetic, and impatient of their inability to succeed in their health and fitness goals. However, initially I was apprehensive to embark in this field, due to countless marketing strategies already dedicated to this industry. In order to stand out and make sales, products are chosen based on unique qualities which separate them from competitors, rather than focusing on qualities which make them more effective. People are now snatching up the newest gimmicks as though they will solve their problems for them, not realizing they are spending money needlessly. The issue with this is that the majority of us do not have a clue what does or doesn't work. So if you are interested in knowing what will work for you in improving your fitness, and potentially save you thousands of dollars in the process, than read on.

Everyone who works out knows the feeling of the day-after muscle soreness, also known as delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS). DOMS is a common effect of working out but severe pain can mean training too hard or lack of an after-workout routine. Cooling your muscles down, stretching, and consumption of the right nutritionally balanced foods can make a difference between severe DOMS and a satisfied "burn".
