The Pull Down Cable Crunch is an awesome Abdominal Exercise that allows you to work your abs with progressive overload. You can start off light, get the technique down pat, and then gradually increase the weight as you get comfortable with the move. This will help you to develop a strong core and well developed abdominals.
The thing I really like about Pull Down Cable Crunches is that they hit the abs from a unique angle. They are one of the few ab exercises that allow you to train your mid-section from the standing position.
The key to getting the most out of this move is to do multiple sets to really fatigue the abs. Start off with moderate weights and shoot for 4 sets of 15 reps. But as you get stronger you can increase the weight and perform even higher sets if you like.
