25 Ways to Tone Your Abs Without Crunches

Wood Chop With Cable Pulley Machine
Attach the double rope handle onto the cable. Set the weight to 15 pounds.
Stand your left side toward the machine about two feet from the machine. Grab the handle and open feet to a stable and wide stance.
Exhale, pull abs to spine, and rotate torso to pull cable down to the outside of your right knee while simultaneously bending it. Imagine you're swinging an axe across your body.
Keep your arms straight, and do not round your back.
Reverse the motion, controlling the weight on the cable as you return to the starting position. This completes one rep.
Do 12 reps on each side for three sets.
This move is great for the obliques.
