Cable rotations are excellent for training your oblique abs, and you can weight them as much as you want. They are usually performed with a pulley station, but can also be practiced with an elastic band.
- Keep your arms straight throughout the entire set, otherwise your arm muscles will lose strength.
- Place the pulley (or elastic) somewhere between hip and shoulder height, this depends on your preference.
- Take a step away from the pulley station so that you have a larger range of motion (ROM).
- Keep your back straight and your shoulders low, and stand with your side towards the pulley.
You must use the correct version for maximum results. Note the following things with cable rotations:
- Turn as far as possible with your upper body for a full ROM. So grab the handle (or elastic) from a position where your upper body is turned as far as possible, and then also turn it as far as possible.
- Turn back in a controlled manner with tension on your stomach, so don't let the cable pull you back.
Low-to-High Cable Rotation
You put the pulley on the lowest position and pull the weight diagonally upwards, which increases the ROM. Pay attention to the same points as with normal cable rotations and also make sure that you do not pull from the back, but only with your abs.
