usually just a 10ga wire coming out from the alt that goes down to the posative terminal of the starter then a 4 ga from the posative terminal of the starter to the posative terminal on the battery

The better way is just a 8-4ga(depending on alt size) from the alt out terminal straight to the battery with a appropriate inline fuse close to the alt for protection
