Talking Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation Training... OR the other kind?

Hi all,

This parallels a line of inquiry I am making in an another thread, but I thought it was a significant enough element to discuss by itself.

I am talking about (in plain english this time) the concept of training cooperative muscle groups versus opposing muscle groups in the one routine.

I'd like to know which method is the more commonly used. Do you press/push only on one training day, and pull/row only on another? Or do you combine pressing and pulling into the one routine? What are the reasons behind doing it one way or the other?
