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?



Axle clean-press: 100 kgs (220 lbs)
Bench press: 135 kgs (298 lbs) - 1st PL meet 16th October 2011
Deadlift w/Barbell: 180 kgs (397 lbs)
Deadlift w/Hexbar: 225 kgs (496 lbs)
Farmers walk: 240 kgs (530 lbs), 50 feet
Front squat: 100 kgs (220 lbs)
Log clean-press: 100 kgs (220 lbs)
Strict OHP: 85 kgs (187 lbs) 3 reps
Tyre flip: 260 kgs (573 lbs), 100 feet
