Oblique Cable Crunch

The kneeling cable oblique crunch is a popular core isolation exercise using a rope attachment and cable stack while kneeling on the floor. It primarily targets the obliques and rectus abdominus or "six-pack" muscles, but also strengthens the deep core muscles. It is most commonly performed for moderate to high reps like 8-12 reps per set or higher.


  1. Great way to load abs with weight that can be tracked and increased over time
  2. Cable provides constant tension on the targeted muscles
  3. Focuses strictly on the abs without worrying about balance or stability
