@eknight also the main thing I don't understand are the speed sets. It seems like those wouldn't be very taxing at all. Are they just intended to help you be more explosive on your heavy days?

They're a form of conjugate method training. The amount of force your body can produce is based on how much weight you move and how fast you're moving it (literally, force= mass x acceleration). You can't consistently handle heavy enough weight to reach failure at 3-5 reps multiple times a week. Your joints and CNS will fatigue to quickly to allow sustained progress with that approach, so, you lighten the weight and speed up the reps. -3X

@eknight alright so say instead of the 8-12s I change those to speed sets. Would this be more beneficial? And can I do speed sets on any exercise or should it focus on compounds?

I would only do them once per week, using one upper body movement and one lower body movement. -3X
