This is true, all depends on the person. I train to max every time, so my body is used to the recovery. Example, my squat max is 600ish. I think I did 565 for a triple the other day. That's pretty much max effort, I torked for the lift, but I was fine the next day and day after. But, I'm 330, I have a lot of body to help recover, and a caloric maintenance of 4000 calories a day lol.
I tried the un-psyche training for a while, I did the squat every day thing up to a 1rm attempt, but the key was to not be so heavy that you needed mental help. That was fricking awesome, but my arm couldn't handle it, it damn near broke from all the stress.
I also only torque on squats for all 3 attempts because I am still not happy with depth, so I torque to go deeper on my first attempt. I don't need torque on bench at all really.
Guess the point is, try it at home first to feel it, then see how you like it while training.
