Cable Kneeling Ab Crunch

  1. Kneel below a high pulley that contains a rope attachment.
  2. Grasp the rope and lower it until your hands are placed next to your face.
  3. Slightly lean forward. This will be your starting position.
  4. Exhaling and contracting the abs, start to curl so that the elbows travel towards the middle of the thighs. Hold in this position.
  5. Inhaling, slowly return to starting position.
  6. Repeat for the required amount of repetitions.

Precautions: Keep constant tension on the abs throughout the exercise. Also, do not choose a weight so heavy that the lower back handles the brunt of the work.
