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

Brian is a world-class powerlifter with over two decades of elite and pro-level powerlifting under his belt. Coming back from a devastating back injury in 2012 that broke multiple bones and that most experts said he would never recover from, he has returned to the pinnacle of world-class lifting (while 100% pain and symptom-free) and is now dedicated to helping others avoid the same mistakes that he made in the past through private and group coaching in Jacksonville, FL. Brian’s impressive recovery has given him the opportunity to teach and deliver talks to physical therapists, chiropractors, medical doctors, professional strength & conditioning coaches and experts from all facets of sport, on how to avoid injury, while building anti-fragile strength and resilience in athletes.
