I'd ask your buddy exactly what he meant from the rep ranges, but it looks like you should start off with a lighter weight x 12, heavy weight x 6, moderate weight x 10 but I'm slightly confused by that to be honest

edit: your OP says 12,10,6,10. This looks like a standard reverse pyramid scheme, so you start off with a weight you feel you can get about 13-14 reps with (and do 12), followed by adding weight you feel will result in 11-12 reps (do 10), then a 7-8 rep weight (do 6), then try and go back to your 11-12 rep weight and see if you can get 10.
