Routines were also full body because I didn't know of anything else and besides, didn't know of enough movements to even be able to plan a split.

No outside influence either. In my "developing" years, I had only lifted in the garage and always alone - it was my time and didn't want to be bothered. No cousin, friend or training partner telling me what was "best." Spun my wheels for a long.. eh, really long time, formed my own opinions and went on from there.

Still a long ways to go.
It's amazing how much great progress comes from stories like this.
