Coach's Tips

It's a workout that uses cables to make the upper abdominal muscles. The cable can handle the weight, so it can give you more load than a body weight crunch!

How to Cable Crunch

Starting Position

1. Start by sitting on the floor with your feet flat, and your knees bent.

2. Place a cable machine pulley at the lowest setting.

3. Attach a rope handle to the cable machine.

4. Grasp the rope handle with both hands and sit up tall.

5. Place your hands at your temples and lean back slightly.

Proper Form

1. Exhale and crunch forward, bringing your elbows to your knees.

2. Inhale and extend back to the starting position.

3. Repeat for the desired number of repetitions.

Breathing Technique

1. Exhale as you crunch forward.

2. Inhale as you extend back to the starting position.


1. Make sure to keep your core engaged during the entire exercise.

2. Keep your neck in a neutral position and avoid straining your neck.

3. Do not use momentum to swing your body forward.

4. Make sure to keep your back flat throughout the exercise.
