How do I perform a standing cable crunch with rotation?

Stand with feet straight, placed shoulder width-apart and keep your knees slightly bent. Grab the cables, place them over your shoulders and hold your hands at chest level. Draw-in your navel, contract your glutes and tuck in your chin. Crunch your upper body forward and rotate your torso to one side. Return your body to the upright position while rotating your torso back to the starting position. Repeat the crunch rotating to the opposite side.
