Guide

Main Muscle:

  1. Connect a standard handle to a tower. Move cable to highest pulley position.
  2. Stand with side to cable. With one hand, reach up and grab handle with underhand grip.
  3. Pull down cable until elbow touches your side and the handle is by your shoulder.
  4. Position feet hip-width apart. Place free hand on hip to help gauge pivot point.
  5. Keep arm in static position. Contract oblique to bring the weight down in a side crunch.
  6. Once you reach maximum contraction, slowly release the weight to the starting position. The weight stack should never be unloaded in a resting position. The aim is constant tension during the set.
  7. Repeat to failure.
  8. Then, reposition and repeat the same series of movements on the opposite side.
Tip: Keep your arm tucked in tight to your side; don’t move it. This technique will ensure the weight is isolated directly to the obliques and not your biceps or shoulder.
