I love it, thats exactly how I feel. Do as few moves as possible to get the job done. Add weight or do more reps. It's not rocket science, so don't make it harder than it has to be.

That's what I did for most of my training career and it worked for me. I have no agenda, and I didn't learn my training protocol from Weider or a book.

I had to learm from my mistakes. My high school lifting coach had us doing basic compounds, and I made great gains in the time I had in the class.

The last three month of the school year he added in deads, cleans, and chins once a week. Our entire program was:

2X week, for most of the year.
Squat
bench

1X week, last three months.
deads
cleans
chins

We did all this Mon-Thurs. Friday was a free day to work on something else, or rest. I normally did some arms, and shoulders. We only had 50 minutes for class work time, and usually had 5 to a group to share a bar. Usually we got about 4 sets per session, and worked as heavy as we could but no lower than 5 reps. More typically about 8.

I learned a lot from that program. I did more complicate dstuff later, but always have gone back to simple basic movements. If it isn't broke, don't fix it.

I tended to do a longer program until I started playing with squats. I was so tired after an hour that I began backing off volume. Once I learned that I was getting big very quickly with just progression and simple movements, I restructured my workouts around the basics and never looked back.

I know it's hard for some younger trainees to believe, but the basics work very well. My arms are bigger then they've ever been, and I've done minimal sets for bis and tris during the last 10 years.
