    If by 'varying' you mean progressively making stuff harder, then typically that would be a good thing.
    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

    However, what about the other variables such as, volume, intensity and rest. Do you guys think varying those opposed to just excercises will have a better effect on hypertrophy? I haven't varied them enough to know for myself, any thoughts?

    Personally those are the things that I vary, but I only vary them after I have squeezed every last ounce of progression out of a given lift.
