Sticking with Power Bias what about the core?
 
I know picking up stuff and holding it over your head is good for the core. My question is...Using GHD, Situps, back extensions for other core exercises how would you keep that in the Power Bias and strength side of the house? Low reps and higher weight, but what kind of rep range would you stay in? What would be some other lower back and ab exercises?

I think we need to pass out a PM fine everytime someone uses the word "Core"....that's just a foul....

You could train movements heavy, explosive or static for the _____. I personally like 1 hand OH squats/lunge, L-sits, ab-wheel (yes I know cheesy name but man those things suck), GHD, knees/feet to elbows/hands, explosive heavy ball throws......and of course 100 reps on the "Bean"......ok maybe not the last one.

I really like foot anchored, medicine ball-chuck-sit-ups. If you can throw the ball against a pad and get a quick return this will allow for quick cycle time. Certainly a fave and I'm not averse to working these at pretty high reps (20-30) due to the ballistic nature.

I shuddered as a I typed "core", but I was trying to be brief. My penance was a short fat fran. See intervals within intervals.

One of the new ones i just started doing in a skin the cat comming out to a front lever or v-hang on the rings, or something different try ring pushups but put a weight on your lumbar region, handstand situps - do a headstand with your feet touching the floor and slowly rasie them up to a straight headstand.
