Ok, I think I see what you mean.
You might be referring more to force absorption? – and in this case the eccentric portion is one useful method – but it’s a more complex formula than simply extending TUT IMO – and it’s not related to micro trauma either.

I think force absorption is probably a better phrase for what i’m trying to get at!

I agree with what you’re saying in that there is far more to it (the use of eccentrics for both hypertrophy and strength) than just extending the TUT.

But my initial point was that in the pure pursuit of hypertrophy (as was asked by the OP) there are several reasons why placing a bigger emphasis on the eccentric phase can be beneficial.
