Plank Shoulder Touch

Plank Shoulder Touch (10)

Start Position: Start in a high plank position on your hands and toes. While maintaining a straight line from your heels to your head, lift one hand up off the ground, moving it slowly to touch the opposite shoulder.

Finish Position: The rep is complete once your hand is returned to the floor and both arms are aligned.

Trainers Tips

  1. Keep your hips square to the ground and do not rotate as you lift your hand to touch your shoulder.
  2. Do not let your butt go up in the air or your hips sag toward the ground. Touch your opposite shoulder then slowly place your hand back down on the ground.
 No Rep:
  1. Hand does not touch the shoulder. Hips rotate during the exercise. Any part of the body besides the hands and feet touch the floor.
