Oh, yeah. Good. You did understand what I meant. Sometimes people miss those points because I write too much. It's not the way I would design it for the actuall effects I would "expect" from things like that. That can be part of the problem too. You expectations can lead you to design things a certain way.
Without very much science at all if you look at week one and week two you can see that those are very different training stimulus that will cause very different training effects. Maybe competing training effects or complimentary depending on how you program it. If anything I would just think of the high rep week as a "light" week if it is programmed in a short weekly fashion like that. Because, IMO, about all you can really expect is some active rest from one week of doing that, if the week before is sufficiently heavy or different, which it is.
Anyway, I wanted to point out, so that Ross didn't think I was going off the deep end, that I have read about this "fiber saturation" concept before as it relates to the blood pump. The idea being that it does something to the type 1 fibers. But it doesn't really make a lot of sense and there is no way this can be backed up in an actual human, of course. But that is how it is related to the pump...the blood being forced in, etc..is supposedly causing some physical change in the fibers.
Even then you would need more than a week to see ANY sort of real and lasting training effect. So it depends on how you think of it. Short periodized which IMO sucks or a med, light, heavy type thing which is great if it makes sense for the individual. So that may effect your expectations or perceptions but in the end all that really matters is what happens.
