Shoulder tap

The shoulder tap is an exercise targeting the abdominals and core. The basic stance matches the top of a push-up position. From there, one hand is raised to tap its opposing shoulder. A tap with each hand to each opposing shoulder equals one rep.


  1. Great for working the abdominals and core, as well as the shoulders
  2. Harder than traditional straight-arm planks because of switching between single arms for support
  3. Can be performed by all fitness levels
