Overview

The cable twist is an exercise that targets the abdominal muscles, particularly the rectus abdominis or six-pack muscles. To perform the cable twist, you will need a cable machine with a low pulley and an exercise mat. Stand facing the machine with your feet shoulder-width apart and your knees slightly bent. Grab the handle of the cable with both hands and hold it at chest height. Slowly twist your torso to the right, keeping your core engaged and your back straight. Pause for a second at the top of the movement, then return to the starting position. Repeat the movement to the left. Perform 23 sets of 10-12 repetitions on each side.
