        sounds like your grip STRENGTH isn't the issue and it's endurance you're lacking. at 80kg you should have no problem hanging on to a bar for enough reps that you feel something in your abs. you did say "feel a burn", not "muscular failure". you should definitely be feeling something or you're doing it wrong. maybe you're relaxing in the extended position rather than maintaining tension?

      if you weigh under 200lbs your legs won't be heavy enough to actually stimulate the abs.

    That’s why you do straight leg raises anon. Agreed though, captains chair is better for these

    why would you leg raise when you can cable crunch. Burns way harder. I do 3 sets full stack then just move up one pin for each new set
    Absolutely brutal.

      Cable crunch is an exercise for DYEL noobs. Even full stack isn’t stimulating enough after a short while.

      That’s why you do straight leg raises anon. Agreed though, captains chair is better for these

      Do them weighted. Either hold a dumbbell with your feet or add weight to a dip belt and squeeze the plate with your thighs. You’ll really begin to feel the burn halfway through the set.

        120kg stack isn't burning your abs after 15 reps? Frick I am such a dyel0A0SINA

          Maybe if it’s true 120kg and not reduced by pulleys then that’s pretty good. Cable crunches are limited by the maximum weight of the machine’s stack. Try some hanging knee raises instead to see how good your abs are. I could only manage 6 per set after maxing out the cable stack for 4x20

          I recently started going to the gym and I can barely do one of these before my fingers feel like completely breaking off.
          But then again, I am a 188cm 110kg fatass who has spent the last 15years drinking beer and playing vidya.

          Good effort. See this post for how to get better at them

          Practice dead hangs. Get at least 60s continuously before really doing these. Ideally 90s because you want slow controlled movements

          . Think of dead hangs for 60s as a prerequisite for doing hanging knee raises. The other prerequisite is at least 3x10 captain’s chair knee raises where you hold for 2s at the top before trying hanging knee raises

            Oh bro try going the opposite way on the dip bar for leg raises. I mean it's all worse than just hitting more strict narrow bench but serratus and shit is something way easier to hit with calisthenics.

            Ah, thanks. I didn't know that's the name of the captain's chair, but yeah I can do a lot of those knee raises.
            When hanging, my fingers are definitely the obstacle. Guess they'll get stronger as I continue lifting.

            yeah it's true 120kg. I can at most do 15x3, and then I go to the captains chair and can maybe do 5-6 leg raises. Abs aren't visible as bulking, so looking forward to cutting away that stomach fat and seeing what progress I made

          I have visible abs after like 2 months of seated cable crunch, i feel like most people just don't keep their back rounded and focus into the abs. that shit lights me up.

          I just find it a lot easier to load that machine up than do the volume i would need to do of any other ab exercise

          the only other good shit I feel like is working is weighted sit ups

          It’s not. I do 20 reps for max weight and it’s nothing.

          that doesnt send me with the force of a full stack
          also i have had it break before so am cautious

            I'd say an uncontrolled full send flip in your bathroom is way more dangerous than headbutting from the cable crunch. The range of motion on the headbutt is pretty short, while you can do half a flip in the bathroom before even touching the floor.
            Besides, don't people use a mat or a pillow on the floor when doing cable crunches? Never seen anyone doing it without a padding on the floor.

      Plancking is the most important exercise, period. Builds sick abs, and makes you a god at sex.

    If you can't dead hang for at least two minutes, you need to either train your grip and endurance or lose weight.

      Uh, it says ab exercises multiple times. Besides you can strengthen your abs, and you can make them bigger, it's just not the biggest factor. Dieting is.

    Move to just doing dead hangs for awhile to improve your lady grips. Switch to doing your knee raises at the dip station with the other women until your grip strength improves from the dead hangs.
