Nerve innervation is a term used to describe the distribution of nerves across the body and to particular areas, along with the supply of nerve impulses.
My take, is that he is a bit ummm nutty. I personally think that for the first few workouts, a beginner should use higher reps, say 3x15-20, but only to get a feel for proper form, then you should crank up the weight. I think we can all agree that if someone only trains with higher reps and less than 80% of their 1rm, their form will look like crap when they start adding weight and get into low reps. Also i know i have done better with lower reps than when i would try higher reps
