It's impossible to say; it would be unlikely that any statistics have been collated or even that all injuries realting to weights would have been reported. I'd say, it probably averages out across the board. It also depends on how the exercise is being done; you can guarantee someone has injured themselves doing barbell curls.
Most injuries I get are obtained when not doing weight related activities.
