I like it!!

For hypertrophy purposes, the thing I've found is that when the resistance is super heavy, your focus is purely directed toward just moving the weight from A to B, but when the weight is moderately heavy, you can get a better mind to muscle connection and really focus on making every inch of the movement hard on the given bodypart. I also find it nearly impossible to squeeze and really contract the muscles hard if the resistance is too heavy.

Good chart:)

I wouldn't really agree. Some points are right but powerlifting training has a number of aspects. Speed training is high in the number of sets and very low in loads used. Also, in my case 80% of a day's movements are moderate in weight with a medium number in sets and reps, 5 sets x 10 reps being a rough guideline for good volume.

Plus, if you're a bodybuilder, using max strength training can improve your hypertrophic results indirectly.

Here's a good wee article, talks about the difference between optimizing strength (lifting performance) vs optimizing muscular development, http://www.t-nation.com/free_online_art ... werlifters
