You know how popular Plank Holds have become, but you want to make the move from doing just those to some other forms of workouts. In this blog post, we will be discussing a variation on Plank Holds called Plank Hold with Shoulder Taps. This exercise is a more challenging version of the Standard Plank that allows your shoulders and arms to have more contact with the ground. It is also a much more cardio-intensive workout than the regular Plank Hold. If you are looking for an exercise that will increase your fitness, this is one sure way to do it.
What Is the Plank Hold With Shoulder Taps Exercise?
The Plank Hold With Shoulder Taps (also called the “Plank Hold with Shoulder Taps”) is a variation on the standard Plank Hold that allows you to focus on your arms, shoulders, and core. It is a great way to target your core and lower body while strengthening your upper body.
The exercise has a good balance of resistance that helps you build muscle while it also helps increase cardiovascular endurance. You could do this version of the exercise at home or in a gym class.
In this post, we will discuss all aspects of the Plank Hold With Shoulder Taps exercise from how to perform it to how it can help you improve your fitness level.
How Does This Exercise Help to Increase Fitness?
The reason this exercise works is because it strengthens your shoulders and arms. When you do a Standard Plank, your upper body is parallel to the floor, your legs are straight, and your hips are locked. This position puts a lot of stress on your shoulders, so you will notice that if you do too many Standard Plank Holds in succession, you may feel some discomfort in your shoulders and arms.
With Plank Hold with Shoulder Taps – a variation on the standard plank hold – the shoulder muscles get more attention than the upper body muscles while still maintaining balance.
Plank Hold with Shoulder Taps isn’t just for sitting; it can also be performed standing up. This variation of the Standard Plank allows you to work out at an arm’s length away from the ground, which allows for more movement. It also gives you a chance to work both sides of your body simultaneously.
Common Mistakes Made When Doing This Exercise
People tend to overdo this exercise by doing too many repetitions or doing it incorrectly. You want to be sure you are doing this exercise correctly so that your muscles will have a good chance of working properly and you will have a stronger workout. If you feel like you are making too many mistakes, try this modification for the Standard Plank Hold: Lower yourself into a squat. Do not drop your elbows to your sides. Your arms should be directly in line with your shoulders when you start the exercise. If you feel like lowering yourself into a squat is too difficult, simply kneel on the floor instead of doing it from a standing position. Keep your abs tight throughout the entire exercise, as if you were performing the traditional Plank Hold.
Another common mistake people make is resting their hands on their thighs or in their lap while they are doing this exercise. This is fine because they will not be lifting much at all during the workout and resting them on their thighs or legs is simply going to lead to fatigue on other parts of their bodies (hands are used for holding weights). The only time I recommend resting an arm or hand on something like your thigh during this exercise is when using dumbbells for support. If those exercises look
How to Properly Do this Exercise
Here are the steps for doing Plank Hold with Shoulder Taps.
- Lie on your back and place your arms out to the sides in front of you (as pictured).
- Place your hands under your shoulders and hold it for a few seconds to really get into the stretch.
- Slowly bring your hips up and down while keeping your arms in a straight line with their palms facing up (for example, if you’re holding the shoulders, then make sure that one palm is facing up so that it faces forward).
- Slowly lower yourself back to the starting position before repeating this process again until you’ve completed 20-30 repetitions (depending on how much time you have).

Tips for Scaling Up Your Workouts
It’s time to scale up your workouts. Just as it’s time to start thinking about whether you should engage in a healthy lifestyle, it’s time to start thinking about increasing your number of workouts.
While doing more exercises may sound like a good idea, it can be challenging when you’re not used to doing so many exercises at once. You may want to break down the exercise into steps and try each one for a set amount of time before moving on to the next one. Most people will do this exercise for the first few minutes but then quickly break down the exercise into two or three segments before moving on to the next one. This is because there are often times when you want to rest for a period of time between segments and/or when you’ve reached your limit on how long you can hold an exercise in succession (e.g., holding a plank) without starting over again from square one).
However, if you have never done any form of cardio training before, it would be wise to take everything slow and steady with your workout schedule so that your body adapts naturally over time. If you have been lifting weights regularly, or jogging regularly, then by all means continue going at full speed until you get used to
