the point of all high frequency workouts is ... lower the volume to the point where you can hit the same body part again at least twice in a week... some program even make it 3 & 4 times....and mind you these programs work (granted a deload/week off is a good idea every 6-10 weeks).
Actually, that approach makes some sense.

The simpliest answer is the best one. In other words, don't overthink it or analysize it.
