1. Start off by laying back on a stability ball. The middle of your back should rest on the stability ball.

Benefits

The rectus abdominis, as well as the muscles in your upper and lower abs, are activated by cable crunches (the six-pack ab muscle). For more difficult compound exercises like the deadlift, bench press, and pull-up, a strong core is required. Cable crunches are simple to adapt.
