If you are training for a spesific sport you will often, but not always, get plenty of fatigue from the sport you are doing! But it also depends where you are timed related to important competitions, since accumulated fatigue will be negative in the period when you need to keep up intensity. So for this reason high volume fatigue training usually comes before periods with high intensity and important competitions, and if you do it right you will get a boost and super compensate when reducing volume, get more rest and rise intensity! That's the theory behind it anyway...
