What muscles do shoulder taps work?
‘Shoulder taps are a major core-strengthening exercise, working the shoulders and arms, transversus abdominis (your deep core muscles), obliques (sides), as well as your back,’ says Sam Ruane, personal trainer at FLEX Chelsea.
How do I strengthen my shoulder taps?
How long should I do shoulder taps?
- Get in a high-plank position on your mat, with shoulders stacked over wrists.
