In those sorts of worst case scenarios, any improvement in recovery rate will have to come from several contributors - a group effort beginning with top end strength.Yeah, I get that....but time and effort are related. That's why intensity and volume are inverse to each other.
From an effort and energy POV, I find 'repeatable ballistics' like the KB swing, done for reps, to be a very different animal from a >85% snatch, done for singles.
Now, one could argue that's just because the KB weight one uses for a Marker type is modest enough to do it for 10-20+ min and is thus low intensity to make it apples and oranges, but that's exactly my point.
So far, my subjective experience is that such conditioning helps my grinds a lot. But I haven't noticed in any improvement yet in recovering from a max barbell snatch if the rest interval is 'worst case' competition short.
Really, you have to define what sort of 'test' is going to be used as a pass/fail.
Intervals with a high %RM (relatively), even if done with a totally different implement have potential to seriously improve recovery time. But that's not the same as uninterrupted endurance test.
