The Cable Crunch


BodybuildingPro.com Exercise Index Abs The Cable Crunch

Every well rounded bodybuilder will focus on abdominal development as much as any other part. There are many well known ways to develop abs, but some exercises are frequently overlooked. One such exercise is the cable crunch.

Muscle Group Emphasis

The major muscle group involved in the cable crunch are the abdominal muscles. The cable crunch develops the rectus obdominis, the external obliques, and the internal obliques. For more information on these areas of the abominals, click here.

Muscle Action

In the cable crunch exercise, all the abdominal muscles are responsible for flexion of the lower spine. In this action, the upper body moves towards the lower body.

Non Bodybuilding Applications

The cable crunch exercise is especially important in many sports that require spinal flexion with the trunk in motion. Examples are listed below:

  • Baseball Pitch
  • Football Forward Pass
  • Tennis Serve
  • Badminton Smash
  • Javelin Throw
  • Other spots which require overhead throwing or hitting

For bodybuilders, it is extremly important for development of the abdominals and to get the needed muscle definition. In addition, any athlete who must handle heavy loads overhead needs strong abdominals (and a strong back) to help maintain a firm midsection.
