It amazes me that this has only a two star rating. For years I have argued against the use of sit-ups for the 'core' and swiss balls and yoga and the like, seeing these exercises as more of a sales pitch than actual functional exercises and allthough you haven't mentioned these things the idea of 'Proper core training' is fantastic and should be done in every gym, all of the time!
