Crunches vs. Full Body; What’s best for the core?

Full Body movements that include the core.  For example:  Squats, push ups, pull ups, planks, side planks, hip drives.  As long as you contract you core during these activities you will see a huge improvement in your whole core and overall body, compared to just one certain area.  Crunches are not a bad thing, but they are not a “bang for your buck” situation.  I believe in quality over quantity, so full body movements is my winner!  Here is an example outline of what my week would look like when it comes to “Core training.”  3 Days a week Full Body Core concentrated training and 1 day a week of crunches.
