    Firstly, I think this has been covered before, apologies for repetition in that case.
    But in theory if you find an exercise that fits, taking into account all the principles you speak of, good profile, bracing, alignment etc..can you just keep it as the ‘meat and potatoes’ for that body part and keep progressing it infinitely… (or as long as you can) I don’t see the need for change? But I’ve just seen other people speak of eventually changing movements more frequently for different reasons, but I just wanted to know thoughts on when to change and rationale for it
    Secondly, this app is great! So much good information on here 👊🏾👊🏾

    Hi, great question, I want to follow up. What about frequency? For example, let’s say the incline barbell press with chains is perfect for me, and I’ve determined my optimal frequency is 3 times a week. Since I’m using a low volume aproach, can I repeat the movement on the three sessions, maybe changing rep ranges? Or in this case I would be better off choosing 3 different variations so I only do each movement once a week?

    Thanks!

    Would love to see your take on this Joe. Thanks.
