Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.

It's not the weight we move, but the people we move that matters. -- Bearded Beast of Duloc (12/31/10)

The comment I always attach to articles like this is the reality that very few lifters train in only low rep ranges. We know that 5x5 systems are effective for muscle building. We also know that low rep sets can build muscle when clustered (Max Stim).
I guess the only thing we don't is if singles or doubles only could build muscle, because no one trains that way.
My guess is that anything with progression will build muscle. But who the heck wants to use a singles/doubles only program with 3-4 minutes of rest between sets? Not me. Not very practical. Also, when the weight gets heavy, we also have to deal with ideas like Prilepin and the Russian research.
So at the end of the day the entire argument, to me, is a waste of time. A low, low rep set approach as the ONLY way of training sets is not a viable approach for beginners, nor is it viable for most advanced lifters. It might be viable in a cluster training format (in fact, I'm sure it is), but then it isn't really the low rep, heavy weight style training being talked about in the article.
Did I ramble enough?
