But instead of 2 years, it takes this guy 3 months to get back up to 200 lbs. This is 'Muscle Memory'. It's basically the CNS operating more efficently due to effective motor patterning.

May to be the same of what you are talking about, but that is the idea that comes to mind when I think of 'Muscle Memory'.
Like what longjab is saying i think most of the rebound effect in this case would be from neurological and CNS adaptions, i also remember reading an interesting study regarding the stretch in fascia's surrounding the muscle is what allows for a rapid regain after only short layoff's, after a period of time the fascias tighten back to where they where if a similair regime isnt continued shortly (maybe 6 months or so) after the lifting has stopped, and the regains due to fascia's stops. there are lots of reasons why this happens.

I believe What is refered to as ''muscle memory'' comes from the heart.
