Forget about sit-ups, the cable machine is a big buddy looking for a six-pack. In our Cable Exercise Guide you will find many tips on how to use the constant resistance of a cable. It is divided into three sections:
- Beginners: First, you will explore the benefits of cable-tipped crunching through two torso twisting exercises that are assisted by controlled arm movements to target (possibly through) both the abdominal muscles and the oblique heads hidden these love handles).
- Intermediate: Now is the time to hit different parts of the abdominal muscles to maximize their results. These exercises include an improved cable crunch while lying on your back, a reverse crunch for the lower abdominals, and a one-arm cable crunch for maximum contraction.
- Advanced: Winners are made here. Starting with a proven method, the judo throw, you will ascend with a double tension pull rope to attack the entire abdominal area. Adding a gym ball to the procedures maximizes the strength and stability of the core by lifting the cable leg before the hull with the high cable beak is under constant tension. Then it goes back to the gym ball to cope with some Russian twists and you master the art of abdominal training.
Now you can integrate them into your training. Either use them as finishers, choose two or three moves, and switch between them with minimal pause or during a session by placing them in a superset between sets of larger full-body exercises. The result will be a stronger, more stable core, ready for use in and out of the gym.
