From the book Rip is pretty clear that the program is Squat-Bench-Dead and Squat-Press-Power Clean. The objective is to get stronger at these lifts. He goes to mention that abs and other assistance exercises are "to be kept in their proper perspective" ie, performed after the big 3, and used to help you get stronger in the basic lifts. He never says not to do them, just not at the expense of the core program.
