Easier than the regular crunches, the cable crunches strongly engage the abdominal muscles for strength and definition.
Adjust the pulley to a high level and attach the rope extension. Then kneel forward.
Grab the cable and keep your back upright. Bring the rope to the side of your face.
While locking in your hips, flex down your waist and engage your abdominal muscles to perform this movement. This will bring your elbows to your upper legs.
Pause and slowly bring the rope back to your start position.
Once completing your set, re-rack the weights as needed or wipe down the equipment used.
Start a lower weight and engage your abs rather than your back for this movement. Start simple.
To make the movement more intense, you can do this on a decline bench. Many gyms have a machine for this which allows you to adjust the angle.
