Mike O'Hearn follows what is called a power bodybuilding workout program which focuses on building muscle by first building strength.

If you are looking to build muscle you need to involve your fast twitch muscle fibers, fast twitch muscles are primarily engaged when lifting medium to heavy weight. Fast twitch muscles are responsible for strength, speed, and explosive power and will be stimulated best through grueling weight training sessions. I would suggest that you work out with 70% to 100% of your 1RM.
