Well it really depends.
It depends on what phase I am in with my training.
For example, if I’m looking to add size and mass, that’s when I would focus on training split muscle groups.
I would split each workout up into two muscle groups, or maybe even just one muscle group if I’m looking to add size, and really stress that muscle.

This means most of my workouts are circuit workouts.
I’m basically training my full body and hitting all the major movements, with compound exercises like the:
I’m also keeping the rest periods very short, so I’m burning a lot of calories during these workouts.
So to answer your question of what is better, full body workouts vs splits, it really depends on you and what your goals are.
