Basically, what they have you do is snatch, clean and jerk, squat, and maybe press, with some basic variations, three times per week. They probably have changed the exact details, but the philosophy is probably the same. Also, read the Duane Hansen article here: http://danjohn.net/pdfs/best.pdf
Again, same sort of philosophy.
Completely agreed. Glenn somewhere comments that up to intermediate level, different weights "feel" completely different (I tried to find that discussion in the bag of links). He likes having lifters at that level just hit a bunch of singles at a given weight.
These days, the approach I use for my own training is a quasi-density approach:
Start at 80% of max, do for singles, when you can hit 15 singles consistently with great form in ~20 minutes, ramp up the weight a bit.
Throw in some strength cycles when progression stalls, and some light work on off days concentrating on point weaknesses.
