GYM: High Plank Alternate Shoulder Tap

High Plank Alternate Shoulder Tap Start in a high plank position with your hands placed below your shoulders, a neutral spine and your feet about shoulder width apart. Maintaining a neutral spine without rotating your hips, pick up one hand and tap your opposite shoulder and then return to the starting position. Repeat the same action on the other side. Your head, shoulders and hips should stay in alignment. Rotating or hinging at the hips are common errors with this exercise. Moving your feet closer together requires additional rotational stability.
