Rope Crunch Guide

Main Muscle: Abdominals

  1. Kneel 1-2 feet in front of a cable system with a rope attached.
  2. After selecting an appropriate weight, grasp the rope with both hands reaching overhead. Your torso should be upright in the starting position.
  3. To begin, flex at the spine, attempting to bring your rib cage to your legs as you pull the cable down.
  4. Pause at the bottom of the motion, and then slowly return to the starting position.
  5. These can be done with twists or to the side to hit the obliques.

Jul 12, 2012 11:46 AM: Of all possible ab exercises, this is not a go-to for me. Using your arms as an aid is inevitable. There's other more effective exercises, including weighted alternatives. I don't know why this is reviewed so highly.

Apr 29, 2012 6:42 PM: I think that the seated crunches are very good by keeping the abs contracting. Also don't get so close to the weight machine, cable rope position on top of head for lower abs. Then get closer to the machine to work upper abs then angle your body about 30 degrees keeping your knees straight facing machine...+See More
