High reps have there place, dependent on individual circumstances, and personal goals.
Weight training is primarily carbohydrate dependent (conditional), and higher rep range work can benefit one on a very low carb diet, where the purpose is to either reduce or deplete one's glucose storage, and the goal is fat tissue loss (especially with some having some issues with fat loss, where BF percentage is already low, or stubborn areas). The higher rep range is extremely beneficial in that it burns a larger partition of carbohydrates, as compared to lower rep work ranges.
