I realize that and thanks for your feed back. I sometimes think I do that because I just like the variety. On the other hand it's because it's almost an insecurity thinking.  I don't want to lose out on the benefit of the change in an exercise. An example of that is the power clean and deads. Power cleans are explosive and fast. They take some athletic skills. Deads on the other hand is a pure strength lift. I realize I should do one or the other but when doing single set training I feel it's not over kill to do both.
