My picks for core work:

1. Ab rollouts (with wheel or barbell) can get funky with these if you use jumpstretch bands creatively too.
2. Heavy side bends. By heavy I mean around bodyweight if you are over 200# and at least bodyweight (or more) if you are a lightweight. You could even substitute suitcase deads or some shit like that. Just a case in point: I do 250# for 3-4 reps using some farmers walks bars.
3. Iso style holds. Planks, hanging knee raise holds, hanging leg holds (L-sits), holds off a GHR or hyper bench. Holds in the standing ab position. Iso moves work very well for me.
4. Hanging leg raises/knee raises...yeah, I've been doing them since '89, gotten from the Health for Life course.
5. Twisting moves. FCT, russian twists, Gagne's cyclones...etc.
