Overview

The cable side crunch is an exercise that targets the abdominal muscles, particularly the obliques. It is performed by lying on your side on a bench or mat, with your feet extended and your knees bent. You then hold a cable attachment in each hand and pull your arms out to the sides, keeping your elbows slightly bent. As you do this, crunch your torso up and over, bringing your elbow to meet your opposite knee. Slowly lower back down and repeat. This exercise can be performed for multiple sets of 10-12 repetitions on each side.
