I agree with Jason and Will but really, you answered the question with “I understand this is a guide.” You are asking why I have something stated, when in the same book – I tell you make it your own. I think this is a simple of case overthinking.

The reps are lower because in the end: Who cares what you can 5, 4, 3, 2 etc, all that matters is your single. Nothing else matters and I don’t want you to be too concerned with the reps schemes. I’m trying to push you toward (low reps) singles, but at the same time, keeping you fresh with more reps before you approach a peaking phase which will be 3 reps, then shortly only singles.

Thank you
