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?

I heard OL have high vertical jump due to explosiveness in exercises So was wondering.. How high is your vj? Do you do pylometrics If someone who never done any jump training could check it out for me that would be cool.

Fifth time snatching, feedback?

Self taught. No bumpers in this gym. Lifting starts like 0:15 I think, can't trim from mobile. Third rep felt the best. This was my tenth set of triples bEu3ImkwoSw
