Lighter weights, less damage! Frank Zane- Mr. Symmetry!

Many people have asked me over the years what I would do differently if I had the chance to go back to my early years of training in the late 60's and early ’70's?

In those days, I did what was necessary for me to win. This included training with heavy weights: a precursor for injury
So if I could do it over again, I’d train with lighter weights, higher reps, no sets below 10 reps, with negatives slower than positives, and avoid injury. If I had done that, my physique wouldn’t have been quite as bulky, but with more definition and with less pain.
  This says it all- One of the greatest physiques of all time, and he says LIGHTER weights would have been preferable...

That is CORRECT!
