This article is important as it refers to a new meta-study that concludes that reps don't matter for strength gains.
There is some interesting inforamtion in the article.
The statement "that reps don't matter for strength gain" is right and wrong at the same time.
It's true in regard to beginners and some intermediates. Anything works for this group.
Obviously, reps do matter for strength athletes for a multitude of reasons. One of the biggest reasons is the Central Nervous System (Keith Norris' article touched on it). Sandee Jungblut research article did not.
What matters is the effort you put in.
Intensity is what matters. Nothing new there.
I think this article is important as many get wrapped around the axle over lifting heavy for strength vs volume.
As Vince Gorinda stated, "You can train hard or long but not both."
Intenstiy and Volume are on opposite sides of the See-Saw. When your volume goes up, your intensity is going to drop.
While some do better with a little more volume, too much volume leads to overtraining. You end up making no progress and even going backwards.
The bottom line I take from this is to do what works for you and don't be afraid to experiment.
Great advice. As Einstein said, "Research is what I am doing when I don't know what I am doing".
Evaluate training methods and then imput them as best you can and see what happens.
