As most of us are working out at home nowadays, we have to develop a lifting regimen that we can do at home with the equipment that we have. I recently bought some resistance bands to be able to do more exercise along with my dumbbells and curl bar. So right now I do 5 exercises per muscle group/2 groups per session, but I want to utilize the resistance bands as well. They have definitely given me more options for legs since I don’t have any machines.
This question is for chest though: I do incline DB, flat DB, squeeze presses, DB flyes and pushups. I would now like to add cable crossovers (high to low as well as low to high) with the bands, but that would put me at 7 chest exercises. Easy right? Just replace 2 of the other exercises? Well, I do those exercises for a reason. I read a lot about the debate between flyes and crossovers as to which one is better for muscle growth. Why not do both and get the best out of each? Squeeze presses are good as well since there is constant tension throughout the movement (those would probably be the 2 I would replace if I was forced to), but those are really good exercises and I don’t want to do that. Is doing 7 exercises for chest and 5 for all others OK? I don’t want to do 7 exercises for every muscle to even it out. Are there any negatives in doing this and why? Does it create an imbalance or is that a stupid question? Or should I just rotate them in every other session? Thanks
