The wall shoulder tap is a bodyweight shoulder exercise that is a popular movement for gymnasts, cheerleaders, and other athletes who need to spend a lot of time in dynamic handstand movements. Beginning in a handstand position with toes touching the wall, one hand is raised to touch the opposing shoulder. This continues in alternating fashion for the duration of the set.
