We are forgetting something too - Optimal training for excelling in strength sports is different from optimal training for the average gym enthusiast, because he can't spend his entire time training, eating and recovering like the Eastern Bloc lifters.
And that's a huge point. Personally, 99% of us aren't training for a sport. We're recreational lifters. I work at home and could train twice a day if I wanted to. Honestly, I've considered it. But with me being close to my max potential, I just don't see much value in doing so. There may be possible strength benefits. But still, I need my recovery time.
