Regarding the 8x3-10x3 stuff though, I agree a lot with his thoughts. I'm definitely more of a fan of doing 3x3 at a higher % of my 1rm than 8x3 or 10x3 at a lower % of my 1rm.

I'm curious what loading protocols he does advocate, though. I wonder if he'll write that article next.

Going through his blog is like sifting through an encyclopedia, with occasional ads for his stuff. lol.
He's a trainer, and tailors the programs to the client so it's nearly impossible to pin down what would be his ideal program for any general audience would be. But here is a list of his articles for easier finding of what you want. He's got lots of great stuff written there.

Here are a couple of Articles I found for determining whether you have Fast Twitch or Slow Twitch dominant muscle groups.

Essentially you find your 1RM, then do the 80 (or 85%) test. Depending on how many reps you get out you can determine if they are predominantly fast twitch, or slow twitch or a combination there of.
