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?

Thumbs up How high is your vertical jump guys?
