A cable crunch is a variation of the abdominal crunch. The difference here is that your support is on your knees and you are crunching towards the floor. The reason this is one of the best ab exercises is because it requires your upper abs to flex longer in order to perform the movement.

Since this is on a cable system you can greatly vary the amount of resistance your abs encounter for your goals and needs. If you want six pack abs you’ll use higher resistance, but if you want a flat stomach you’ll want to focus more on the number of cable crunches you can do per set.

How To Do The Exercise

1. Using the rope attachment, get down on your knees 18-24 inches away from the cable machine. While holding the rope attachment, bring your hands to your ears. This is the starting position.

2. Flex the abs and slowly crunch down to the floor, bringing your head down as close to your knees as possible.

3. Slowly come back up to the starting position. If you don’t go slowly, the resistance can jerk your body, possibly causing it injury.

4. Try to do 4 sets of 15 reps. Adjust accordingly to increase your results for ripped abs.

Tips

1. Start this exercise with light weight. The light weight will allow you to adjust so you are the correct distance away from the cable machine for your crunch. It’s also a good way to warm up your abs before you really increase the weight.

2. The slower you do this exercise the better. The resistance should be able to hold you back enough so when you do the crunch you actually do the exercise slowly. Take your time on the exercise and make sure to not move your hands once you start the crunch.

Extra Six Pack Abs Tip

Other than adding resistance by increasing the weight, you can hold the crunch for at least one second to increase difficulty. The more weight you do, the harder it will be to hold the position for one second. If you are able to do 15 reps easily, you should go up in weight. This will encourage your muscles to grow bigger and stronger to get those desired six pack abs.

Extra Flat Stomach Tip

Never increase the resistance to a weight where you aren’t able to do 15 reps per set. Keeping reps high and resistance low will help burn off the tummy fat and get a sleek look to your midsection for your flat stomach goals.
