Question for personal trainers (This is related to gaining strength)

Can someone get a stronger core if they do 2 sets of ab crunches (100 reps each) AND 2 sets of knee ups (100 reps each) two times a week? Can this make a beginner get a stronger core if they do this? or will this only make their core have muscular endurance?
