By Charles Poliquin:

There's some research saying the obliques have a very low potential for strength development. It's actually been shown that the obliques have the least amount of potential for hypertrophy and strength. This is why I'm against those Tornado Balls and other things recommended by coaches who can't get anybody strong. The core is most recruited by squats and deadlifts, even though there's no rotating action.
