this guy seems to be onto something about the full body workout

"When we think of old-school style training, we often remember the likes of Steve Reeves and company performing full-body workouts three times a week. Today such a routine is often passed on in favor of more "advanced" training splits. Most bodybuilders prefer to train the body over 4 - 5 days. Supposedly this sort of split allows the body to recover over a longer period of time, and enables one to perform more sets for one or two body parts. I do not believe that one approach to training frequency is better than another. In my opinion, the full-body workout has its place in bodybuilding just like all the other programs. It has stood the test of time and can be used by beginner, intermediate and advanced bodybuilders alike. Reeves had an awesome physique for his time, one that is still considered great, so suffice to say he must have been on to something..."
