If 2nd is 5000rpm how is this extra strain on his transmission? Please explain.

If its auto it is my understanding it would rev match on downshift, theoretically this wouldn't cause any extra strain on the transmission. And by your logic any gear at 5000rpm would be equally damaging.

Please explain.
