I like to train my core on squat days. I found when i trained my core the day before squat day it is hard for me to stay tight while squatting. But I've known guys do train core before squat days as well. I know my answer probably doesn't help much, but give it a try and see how you feel.

If not my suggestion, i suggest this also squat will work your abs over good so its best to work them on that day

I wouldn't train lower back or abs hard the day or two before squat or deadlift day.

In general I think it's best to hit the core hard on squat/deadlift days, or several days before squat/deadlift days.

Again its good to see guys pushing squat and dl, for core strength. DL's use more muscles than you realize as do squats trying to keep that heavy s*** steady. I add in some planks, leg raises and rev crunches though at end of my training.

I think i put the core on the squat day and deadlift day.
The core need some attention by me.
I feel that my lowerback need more attention.

I'm making a routine designed to assisted te main lifts.
When i'm done i'll put it on the forum for control and pointers
