    Sets and reps for kneeling cable crunches?

    What rep range do you guys do kneeling cable crunches?

    I was gonna do one of the three, 15,12,10 or 12,10,8 or 10,8,6. All while increasing the weight each set.

    Which one would be best and why?

    Everyone seems to have their own style, especially when it comes to abs. I do my kneeling cable crunches with three sets of 15. I take very short breaks, like 20-30 seconds in between my ab sets, and that seems to work better for me. But to answer your question, if you are wanting long lean abs, I would go with more reps, and less reps for mass.

    right u are sir.. i can get away with 15, bc i get my reps extremely focused and precise. so i dont have ot do as many... nice and controlled, but ill do them more if im not feeling the right way at 15..

    The rep schemes you have are basically set for your desired training adaptation. Higher reps = muscular endurance, moderate reps = muscular hypertrophy, and lower reps = muscular strength. During your training cycle, you spend the most time on your desired goal.
