Gotcha just wanted to be sure.

No. It's not about adding the sessions and days.. and then more sessions.. even though that is the case. It's adding all that in SO you can lift heavier weight. If you can progress faster adding weight to the bar (which is generally the case with very high frequency), then you're gonna be succeeding.
But, if you don't add the extra sessions, doesn't that make it not the Bulgarian method? So, technically, are the CA wod Bulgarian cycles not Bulgarian? I'm still failing to see the connection.
