I also learned I would train back more frequently, and that it didn't fit in well with posterior chain work.

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.
It sounds like the push only/pull only thing is used most commonly by bodybuilders. SO it's not what I'm after. Looks like I need to just scrap the approach.

Back to square one.
