Why would an ecto want to do full body workouts?

I've found the best thing to do is sticking to basic exercies

Squats, Deadlifts, Pull-Ups, Bent Over Rows, Military Presses, Incline Bench Presses, Flat Dumbbell Bench Presses, Dips, Curls.

High Reps, Heavy Weight. High Calories, High Protein, High Carbs, Moderate Fat.

Doing all those complex programs with complex exercises and movements over the years was a huge waste of my time.
