Target Muscle Group: Abs

Cable crunch overview

The cable crunch is an excellent exercise for targeting your rectus abdominis, or "abs." This muscle group runs along the front of your abdomen and is responsible for that six-pack look.


The best part of the cable crunch exercise is that it allows you to isolate your abs by fixating your feet underneath a stable object and keeping them there throughout the exercise. This forces your abs to do all the work, resulting in a great ab workout!

How to Do it?

  1. Attach the rope attachment and a high-pulley cable to the stack.
  2. Face the cable machine directly.
  3. Grab the rope behind your head, palms facing inwardly. Then, drop to your knees.
  4. Your buttocks should rest on top of your feet. Keep your elbows bent and your hands at the shoulder or head height. Crunch as low as you can.
  5. Slowly lower your body back to the original position.
  6. Repeat for the desired number of repetitions.

Cable Crunch Tips

  1.  This exercise is most effective when performed slowly and with perfect form.
  2.  At all times, your buttocks should touch your heels.
  3. Instead of pivoting at your hips, focus on clenching your abs.
  4. It may feel more comfortable to rest your rope on your shoulders as you increase weight.
  5. Do not choose a weight too heavy for your lower back to withstand.
