I think most bodybuilders use them because thats what they have always done. i dont think it is a case of this is better than that. Excellent bodies have been built by people using both methods of training. i think it is just what works for YOU that is important.
Then you have the steroid issue. Fullbody is NOT the optimal way to train if you are using chemical assistance. A lot of the Pro BB'ers (that you see on the cover of flex etc, not the natual one) use gear and therefore use split. Then when someone wonders what the best way to train is, they see 'x' pro bber using a split and think it must be better.
Liek I said BOTH methods can be used to build a fantastic body, I just think the media has given preference to splits.
just my 2p worth mate
