Again, using multiple exercises for the one muscle group in the same workout is fine for muscle growth, but the volume would be counter productive for strength, so it is best to qualify your advice with what you are trying to achieve- your goals may be different, and thus so will your training methods.

I dont see how mixing things up has inhibited my strenght. Like I said its soemthign you can mix up like one day just do heavy bench, another day to a mix of barbells and dbs, etc...It makes your body learn to adapt to doing work in different ways

The body improves based on a principle called 'overload and adaption'. For this to work best, the body must be presented with the same challenge repeatedly to give it a chance to guage the changes it needs to make to handle the workload.

Think of it like revising for an exam. If you have a History test coming up on the civil war, you will need to read and make notes on that period of history repeatedly for it to sink in and be familiar enough to draw upon from memory.
Now if you read about the civil war one day, then get distracted and fill your head full of renaissance europe the next day, and Hitlers rise to power during the depression the day after that? Well, by the time your test comes round, you will have nowhere near the recall and depth of knowledge as those who focussed on their target info.

Training is no different. Pick an exercise, concentrate on it, allow your body to deal with it and improve at it. When you feel that your gains are slow/stopped, move on to the next challenge, apply yourself, improve- so on and so forth.

Running round the gym like a kid in a sweet shop trying all the goodies makes it impossible to guage your improvement as you change the conditions each time you train.
