Best way to strengthen your core?
What are some great ways to strengthen your core for power lifting? What exercises have the most carry over for strength in the big 3 lifts? How do you do them and how often?
I recently realized my core has become the weakest link in my squatting, so I think a change of ab/core work is in order. Currently, I do 3 sets of 12 standing cable crunches at the end of my workout 3 times a week. Once I can complete 3 x 12 with a weight on 2 consecutive sessions, I increase the weight.
