Question 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.
