I think I asked this years ago but never came to much of a conclusion. I like the idea of abbreviating to 4-6 big exercises but always worry about possible problems with strength imbalances between opposing muscles. Cant seem to find any straight forward advice. I read everything from doing the 'big 3' is enough to working every muscle independently. Advice, experience? Im thinking Trap bar squat, chins/rows(alternated), incline bench/dips(alt), shoulder press in HST format. Im not a competitive BB still want a body like Bruce Lee so doing arms curls, calf raises etc just seem like fluff but dont want problems.
