Plank Jack & Shoulder Tap

Step 1

Start by planting both hands on the mat slightly further than shoulder-width apart, feet together on the mat behind you while resting on the balls of your feet. Gently draw your ribs to your hips to engage your core. This is your starting position.

Step 2

Jump both of your feet outwards so that they are slightly wider than your hips. At the same time, release your right hand and reach across your body to touch your left shoulder, ensuring that you brace your abdominals to keep your hips parallel to (in line with) the floor.

Step 3

Jump both of your feet inwards, and lower your right hand to return to the starting position.

Step 4

Jump both of your feet outwards so that they are slightly wider than your hips. At the same time, release your left hand and reach across your body to touch your right shoulder, again ensuring that you brace your abdominals to keep your hips parallel to the floor. Continue alternating between right and left for the specified amount of time, inhaling for two repetitions and exhaling for two repetitions.
