I'd recommend to pick one exercise for width and one for thickness and just get brutally strong at both. That was one of the main things that I took away when I first started looking into DC training and since then my back has always been one of my greatest body parts.

Some people respond well to just one or the other, but that's not many people IMHO.

Various forms of deadlifts help overall. Rack pulls provide some thickness in your pack and traps. Halting deadlift really punish my last. Add some rows and pull-ups for that complete back. Deadlifts really thicken up a back. You can usually tell who doesn't like doing them.

It all depends on your Goals and your programming...

I always hit Back Width and back thickness on different days...

When I train on DC Training Back width and Back thickness is hit alt. weeks, but it's geared towards Body Building and Overall Size.

Even when I do 5/3/1 and Focus on just assistant work that focus just on the Main lifts.. It still gets broke up..
***On Bench Day.. Chest, but I also hit my Lats, which is Back width..and Rear Delts too.
***On Deadlift Day, It's a Given on back thickness, but again Rows are one of my assistant exercises..

So even if I don't directly mean to focus on different Workouts for Thickness or Width.. It just ends up like that for me.

For a long time, I did a bro style split and found my lats were crazy sore after my chest day. Then after reading, "Starting Strength", things got a lot easier to comprehend. Bye bye went the split but I still manage my lifts knowing that the indirect effect of certain exercises will effect others. Doing one width movement and one bulking movement is a good style. Personally I do one barbell movement and one vertical pulling movement each workout and that seems to hit my whole back overall.
