Low-rep, high load training is optimal for building strength but high-rep training can still be effective for muscle hypertrophy. A 2012 study found that lifting weights as light as 30% of one-rep max can lead to muscle growth if you do enough reps to thoroughly fatigue the muscle.

It may suit lower body training better. Many report better progress using higher reps for lower body exercises. This may occur due to the great capacity for endurance the legs possess, and therefore they may benefit from a higher workload compared with the upper body. This may occur due to muscle fiber type ratio or some other less clear reason.
