[Video] Arms & Core – Plank, Shoulder Taps & Pushups

This super-quick addition to your next workout, will help you tone your arms and get a stronger core, think – ‘Arms & Abs’!

THREE exercises and THREE sets, with ZERO equipment needed.

  1. High Plank
  2. Shoulder Taps
  3. Pushup & Shoulder Tap

You’ll notice that each set is a build up from the previous one, watch the entire video first for instructions and technique before you exercise.

As always:
CORRECT FORM/TECHNIQUE IS KEY! Don’t rush through your workouts and end up compromising your technique and risking injury… not worth it!

Turn up the volume to hear the voiceover with more helpful instructions and let me know how you get on after you try it!

Important Tip: ALWAYS Warm up before and stretch after all workouts.

Strength & Core Workout (With VIDEOS)

There is a method to the short workout videos I have started uploading on YouTube (Subscribe Here).

For example, I posted these 2 videos within a week of each other and see(!): you can put them together to make a significant chunk of your next workout… Let’s act like I didn’t just realise this a few minutes ago :p

NOTE: You absolutely HAVE to warm up before your workout. Include dynamic stretches which both warm up your muscles but also prepare your joints for exercise. Check my YouTube channel before the end of the week for a basic warm up routine that you can use for most workouts.

You also have to STRETCH post workout. I also will be uploading a basic stretch video that should be your MINIMUM stretch routine. If you have more time, it’s important to spend more time on stretching, especially the muscles you have worked.

Exercise Terminology Tip
Someone left a comment about how one of the videos below helped her finally understand what a set means. A set is one round of the required repetitions of an exercise or a set of exercises.
Using one of the videos from below:
10 Rows, 10 Pushups, 10 Squat Thrusts = 1 SET
When you’re instructed to do THREE sets, you perform all reps of the exercises, back to back, REST for the allocated time and repeat two more times.

Hope this helps!

In the videos below, you will perform all three sets of the first video before moving on to the second video.
