Hook grip

Hey I was wondering if you guys use hook grip on any other pulling or pushing exercises besides cleans. Also with cleans do you keep the hook grip throughout the whole thing or do you slide out the thumb with the jerk.

Is it necessary to do snatch balance to get stronger snatch ?

Core work.. necessary?

Just curious to see that if core work is still necessary in an OLY routine. While Squatting x4 a week along with performing the lifts over and over, should I still include some isolated core work? If so, what kind of core work do y'all do?
