A lot of this has to do with outlook for me.

For example...When I was deep in the bodybuilder end back was always placed on it's own pulling day, far away from bench press. When I began to explore powerlifting I learned just how involved back training was with pressing, and just how important it was to train an opposing movement in the same plane. I also learned I could train back more frequently, and that it didn't fit in well with posterior chain work because of time limitations.

So back is both a cooperative and opposing, depending on the outlook.

In a pure bodybuilding sense it's not uncommon to work triceps with back or biceps with chest. Some people like to work arms when they are fresh, and I see merits in this approach.
