I think the recommendation is for a MINIMUM of 48 hours rest between ST sessions, rather than it should be specifically that long.
Waiting 72 hours between workouts will help you recover better and get more out of each work out, but obviously this needs to be traded off against fewer workouts.
It is worth remembering that 3 ST sessions per week will give you 48, 48 and 72 hour breaks, while sticking to 72 hours between sessions (rather than 2 ST sessions every week) will allow you to squeeze in an extra session every 3 weeks.
The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.
