Please give me some examples of people who have used full body workouts to build an awesome physique and that you are almost certain did not use steroids

Thanks for any response
Most classic bodybuilders till 1950s, before the steroid era used full body routines. Here's a sampling of the better known bodybuilders from that era.

John Grimek


Reg Parks


Steve Reeves


Clarence Ross


Alan Stephan


Jack Delinger


George Eifferman


Dick Dubois (if I am not mistaken, at least while he trained with Reeves)


Manohar Aich (picture at the age of 94)


And even sweet baby Arnold - starting out, before getting on roids, Arnold idolized Reg Parks and followed 5x5 routines. Evidently, they worked pretty well for him too, as evidenced by his photographs at the age of 17


Amongst the modern day natties, Tony Montalbano trains almost exclusively on full body routines, especially during the off season.
