Take away points:

  1. The mechanisms* “muscle memory” formally refers to are very much so real, although all too often misunderstood and misinterpreted. It is because of this we avoid the term “muscle memory”.
  2. Changing your sensitivity doesn’t ruin your aim, it will simply require a varying amount of readjustment depending on often you change your sensitivity.
  3. Changing sensitivity is a fairly common training method, having both anecdotal and empirical evidence supporting it.
