I feel the same way. Reminds me of the famous Arthur Jones stories where he'd instruct his trainees to rest for a week before their first training session under his guidance and they'd grow during that rest period. Way I see it, that actually shows the efficacy of their previous training style when followed by a layoff.

In my experience, and this is very anecdotal, those who tend to get
better results from HIT types of programs are overtrained in terms of
volume. Has anyone else in the group shared this experience?
I don't doubt that good results cannot be obtained from a HIT
program. My doubts stem from the assertion that a HIT program
produces better or superior results to a multiple set program
(assuming the athlete is not volume-overtrained)

journals of the bodybuilders who benefitted from the HIT protocol,
they were doing a tremendous volume of work prior to adopting the HIT
system. The HIT system served as somewhat of a "de-load" thus
