Standing cable crunch

The standing cable crunch is a popular core isolation exercise using a rope attachment. It primarily targets the rectus abdominis or "six-pack" muscles, but also strengthens the deep core muscles. It is most commonly performed early in an ab workout, usually in moderate to high reps, such as 8-12 reps per set or higher.

Benefits

  1. Great way to load abs with weight that can be tracked and increased over time
  2. Greater range of motion than a traditional sit-up or crunch
  3. Weighted ab training can increase core definition in addition to strength
