Hmmm...Some of you know, I started out on a 20-rep scheme (as a beginner which may accountfor some of the results), I got density/size and pretty sure strength somewhere along the line since I had to keep increasing the loads.
IMO, they haven't really done enough studies and certainly nowhere near enough studies on groups that stay within set rep ranges, so there's no way they can say for sure how any rep range will ultimately affect someone.

Those charts amuse me. Note that most beginners in gyms are given 10-12 rep sets to do. So the beginners will put on size? That explains the enormous guns of the chicks struggling to do sets of 8-12 on the chest press machine.
As I said here, since most lifters are beginners, for almost everyone in the gym, this chart is bollocks. Whatever you do, do more than you did before - more weight, or if you can't do more weight then more reps, if you can't do more reps then more sets. Stay somewhere in a sane range of more than 3 and less than 20, otherwise do what you like.
