Default handgrip increase AS intensity

Why handgrip(increase systematic vascular resistance) decrease Aortic stenosis.
Cuz i think handgrip increase preload and we know that increase preload increase aortic stenosis murmur intensity.

Default Re:

Handgrip is systemic vascular resistance. Increase in systemic vascular resistance is increase in afterload. Increase in afterload leads to increased resistance. Increased resistance means decreased blood flowing through the aortic valve. Decreased turbulence and therefore decreased intensity of murmur. Get it?

Does that makes sense. This is how i think it works out.
