But you can imagine if you completely trash a bodypart with an insane amount of workload it may take longer for it to be fully recovered.
The way I interpret this is yes, it may take longer for it to be fully recovered, but you probably wont benefit any extra from it. Kinda like there is a limited window of opportunity to progress, any extra tearing down will simply hold you back.
So the take home message is its probably better to spread the workload over 2 sessions a week rather than completely annihilate it once a week. Maybe even 3 times a week may be better - the full body routines 3 times a week have been proven to be VERY successful. So its not just a labcoat theory, - but its been proven in the field.
