Ablanedo was born in Mieres, Asturias. During his career he played solely for Sporting de Gijón after being a product of the club's famed youth system, Mareo, and received his first-team debut on 2 January 1983, as a second-half substitute in a 1–0 home win against RCD Español after José Aurelio Rivero was sent off.
After two further appearances in the following season, Ablanedo became the Asturian side's undisputed starter, totalling 399 La Liga appearances. In the 1986–87 campaign, as Sporting finished fourth, he appeared in 42 matches (out of 44, as the league had a second stage).
Ablanedo retired from football after 1998–99, with Sporting now in the second division. He also had some serious injuries during his career, playing in only two games in his last season and none in 1991–92. He was awarded three Ricardo Zamora Trophy awards during his career.
