FitRewards Challenge March 2017 : Shoulder Taps

March 1, 2017

What's involved: Deltoids, triceps, abs (Rectus Abdominis), core (Transverse bdominis), glutes, quads, and lower back.


Tip: You can increase the execution speed of shoulder taps to make it more challenging to your core. Body must stay aligned and square to the floor or mat.

Starting Position
· Start in a plank/pushup position, with wrists and elbows under your shoulders
· Feet should be hip width apart
· keep the back straight
· the arms are almost fully stretched and support your body
· stay on the balls of your feet


Correct Execution
· Tighten your core and engage your glutes to keep your head, spine and neck aligned.
· When in the push-up position, Lift up one hand to touch your opposite shoulder and return to the start position. Alternate arms.
· Trainer will count the number of successful taps that you get in one minute, as long as proper form is maintained (hips and shoulders stay square to the ground in plank position).
