Default Splits vs. Full Body Workouts

I want to hear what you guys have to say. I know that really anything works for beginners. But what is best for you after your first year of training? Full body workouts, or splits?

I read recently that many of the natural bodybuilders of the 50's and 60's did full body routines, and that training splits didn't really become popular until the Weider era.

Are splits really only better for steroid users, or do they work for naturals as well?

I've seen the argument that splits overtrain the muscles for naturals. And I've heard the argument that fullboby workouts overtrain naturals.

The reason I'm posting this is because I'm thinking about a 5 or 6 day split so I can really cxoncentrate on bodyparts.
