More reps, less weight.  If you are doing it to feel better, maintain flexibility, etc.  don’t get into the heavy weight.  Good form and repetition will add to flexibility and strength with lower chance of injury.  When going to max weight/resistance, form will suffer and that is when injuries happen.

Yep!

Same philosophy I use.

Used to lift 6-16 ouncers, then went to 8-12 ouncers...

I've spent many years in the power lifting and Olympic style lifting, I always was about getting mass and weight so now at crossfit it diles me back some and gets me into the movements and plan  not just getting that 500lbs deadline or 300 clean
