Overview

The heel tap is an exercise that targets the abdominal muscles, particularly the rectus abdominis or six-pack muscles. To perform the heel tap, you will need to lie on your back with your knees bent and your feet flat on the floor. Your arms should be extended out to your sides, palms facing down. Inhale and then exhale as you raise your head and shoulders off the floor, bringing your knees towards your chest. At the same time, tap your heels together. Lower your head and shoulders back to the floor and return your feet to the starting position. Repeat this for 10-12 repetitions.
