Other than that, I'm a believer in progression threw adaption. So I never switch up my movements.
I agree here. An option that I found useful and interesting is to adopt a rotation of maybe two or three fullbody routines and do your workouts A-B-C, then repeat. Just make sure you're progressing each time you repeat a particular workout. For example, make sure A2 is better than A1. This is basic doggcrapp style philosophy. If you bomb out on a particular exercise two or three times in a row, throw it out for a while and put something else in its place.
