Kneeling cable crunch

Primary Muscles Worked: Triceps Brachii, Trapezius

The cable crunch allows for the additional resistance from a normal crunch.  It’s a great exercise for those who want to further develop their abdominal muscles and add resistance.  

Be sure to:

1. Don’t hyper-extend your back at the top of the motion.

2. Hips should barely be flexed during exercise.

3. Use any cable attachment, preferably robe or v-grip.

4. Hands and rope are not pressed on your head during the exercise, to avoid stress on the neck.
