Decline Cable Knee Raise Instructions

  1. The decline knee raise hits the lower abs. Set up the equipment by placing a decline bench in front of a low pulley cable machine. Place the low end of the decline bench closest to the cables.
  2. Attach the ankle strap to the low pulley cable and select the desired weight.
  3. Attach the ankle straps to your ankles.
  4. Lay down on the decline bench with your head up the high end and grip the pads at the top of the bench for support.
  5. Pull your knees up slightly to take the weight off the stack. Slowly pull your knees up as high as possible.
  6. Pause, then slowly lower back down to starting position.
  7. Don't let the weight drop to the stack throughout the entire set!

Cable Knee Raise Tips:

  1. Pause for 2-5 seconds at the top of the movement (with your knees up) to add intensity.
  2. Do not let the weight drop to the stack at all throughout the set.
