    Hi Joe! I have listened to your principles about exercise selection, and how you like to find exercises with good profiles, alignment etc. Provided that they work for the individual. However, after hearing other people’s views such as Jordan Peters, he mentions adding in a rotation into your training so yours lifts do not stall, whereby you would not repeat the same session 2X in a row. For example:

    Push, Pull, Legs A
    Then
    Push, Pull, Legs B
    Then going back to rotation A, and so on.

    I was just wondering if you think intentionally rotating exercises for the sake of not stalling on an exercise would warrant more merit than sticking with the absolute best exercise (for the individual), and running it into the ground, session after session for weeks to months on end.

    I hope you got through that mouthful, thanks a lot!

    Thank you so much again for the detailed, and well worded response as always Joe! You made the whole concept perfectly clear for me. I have been making great progression on the majority of my exercises, and I have began to found the exercises I like to gravitate towards and work best for my structure. With that being said, I will run them into the ground. Thanks again.
