Twisting Lying Cable Crunch Instructions

  1. The floor cable cable twist works both the abs and obliques. Attach the rope attachment to the low pulley cable machine.
  2. Lay down in front of the cable machine with your head about 2-3 feet from the bottom of the machine.
  3. Your legs should be bent with your feet around shoulder width apart.
  4. Grasp the rope attachment with palms facing inward and pull up to the side of your head.
  5. Crunch up until your shoulder blades are off the floor, and bring your right elbow over towards the left side of the body.
  6. Pause, then lower yourself back down.
  7. Repeat, but this time bring your left elbow towards the right side of your body.
  8. You should not lower all the way back down. Keep your upper shoulders off the floor throughout the set.

​Exercise Tips:

  1. The more you can twist, the more emphasis will be placed on the oblique muscles.
  2. Always do this exercise slowly with strict technique.
