I would absolutely NOT recommend obtaining powerlifting info from Flex magazine.

My biggest mistake when starting to get into strength training was attempting a new 1RM entirely too often. At one point, I was maxing-out every week for a while. That's a quick way to either get injured or not make progress because your nervous system is fatigued. I didn't know any better and I'm glad that I was lucky enough to not get hurt.

Default The Body By Gamma Revised List, Top 10

1) Not cycling training methods over a course of several weeks/months

2) Over-reliance on low reps, only staying in the 1-3 rep range for too long

3) Insufficient emphasis on other lifts (which is linked too next one)

4) Failure to correct weak spots, also failure to built tendon and joint strength

5)Training like a Muscle and Fitness Bodybuilder(Not enough rest days)

6) Lack of knowledge on activation of both fast twitch and slow twitch fibers

7) Lack of or no Prehab/Rehab work as well as GPP/Mobility/Cardio, not to add flexibility or simply lack of athleticism over all

8) Failure to balance the muscle groups,over-training certain smaller muscles

9)Not enough work done for technique or form for accommodating leverages

10)Lack of stability and full range or beyond range of motion exercises

and one bonus one, Lack of rest, going too heavy too often, CNS fatigue and overtraining leading to injury.

Guilty as charged for this one when I was younger.

I like GL's way of keeping it simple, especially for beginners who if they have a good and basic program they shouldn't run into those issues.

I made my list nice and long for those of us who have entered the intermediate level of lifting were we have to over analysis everything to get those 5-20lbs pr's every few months or so, but that being said it still should be worked out in to a simple fashion.

Do you have any pointers in particular for developing joint/tendon strength? And in cycling - should I just be altering my rep range and still be aiming for failure?

Sometimes - at least for me - it's a matter of simply using a certain weight for a period of time. I hovered at a 470 to 500 deadlift for a year but would get my reps in and eventually I think my body finally caught up. I'm no expert on this topic but I believe one aspect is not to stop when progress stalls.

I think time under the bar is one of the keys to tendon strength. But I'm sure these uber lifters have better input then this. I'm just a hack who hasn't studied jack when it comes to powerlifting.
