Hello dear Dr. Graham,
Maybe you missed my post so I'm here proposing it again.

Regarding muscle hypertrophy strategy you recently said here
that "10-20 reps is considered excellent
for this purpose, though 15-25 is fine if you prefer",
but in Nutrition and Athletic Performance you say

"Generally, lower repetitions with heavier weights
will result in greater muscle gain than will a high
number of repetitions with lower weights"

and in The 80/10/10 Diet

"The only way to gain muscle weight is by "asking"
your body to build through the demands of strenght-
training activities. Pure strenght training is
technically defined as "one repetition maximum," or
"1RM," meaning that you can lift that particular
weight a maximum of one time before muscular fatigue

Acually I can't understand what do you think is the
best way to gain muscle/hypertrophy: lower reps with
heavier weights (1RM-like strenght training) or higher
reps (10/20) with less weight?

I'm a little bit confused, can you please clarify
