Default Please Read... Help needed

OK so I need to have advice on what the experienced members on here think about which routine i should do next.

First a bit about me. I am 36, have lifted on and off for about 3-4 years (more off than on for the first 2 years though). I have OK lifts, 110kg bp, 150kg squat, 65kg MP and a rubbish 145kg deadlift, but have never had those 'beginner gains' that everyone talks about size wise.

I have ran 5/3/1 before, and mainly bp splits before that. I have a couple ideas of what to do next and i am looking for strength and size. I have had a couple of ideas from RJ Perkins for a similar routine to what he does so upper heavy/lower heavy/chest and back/legs/shoulder and arms, but i would work out 4 times per week and rotate the exercises.

However i have been doing more of a full body approach at the minute and i am enjoying that, so i am debating whether to do a 'classic' full body, so Reeves or Park inspired.

My thoughts are 3 days a week full body will give me more rest and hopefully more growth (plus i could include some cardio on off days), but I have always been under the brain washed impression that splits would give the best gains (untill reading some of the posts on here especially from glwanabe) so i am in a bit of a quandery...

hope you can help with any ideas and/or suggestions

Carl.
