I have found that there is an adaptation/conditioning period that takes place for most programs because of volume/intensity/whatever differences. I don't feel I even begin to perform at full speed until after weeks 3-4.

For example, when I used rest pause in 2008 it took me 4 weeks before I adapted and was able to progress consistently.

The SAID (specific adaptation) that occurs allows a lifter to better focus on performance and progression as opposed to fatigue/energy management.
