    always include the big movements?

    in varying your routine, is it best to always include squat, deads, bench, rows, dips & chins no matter what?
    or should they be taken rest from like any other exercise ?

    personally i like to keep them, but it can be benefical to rotate them from time to time. Especially if you are doing heavy deads and squats in the same week.

    I would always have a variation of the 6 basic movements

    Squat
    SLDL
    OH press
    chest press
    row
    chin

    A leg press is a variation of a squat movement, for example. A dip is a chest press.
    Squats work better than supplements.
    "You know, if I thought like that, I'd never put more than one plate on the bar for anything, I'd never use bands or chains, I'd never squat to parallel or below, and I'd never let out the slightest grunt when I lift. At some point in your lifting career (assuming you're planning on getting reasonably strong and big), you're going to have to accept that most people think you are some kind of freak." -Sensei

    keep to basics. if you want to vary them, change the reps and the tempos of the lift.
