1) is it even advisable for a beginner to work a hang board?
2) what sort of holds would be best for a novice that top-ropes ~5.8? I am assuming hand-width size jugs and such?
3) Is there a fairly high risk of muscle/tendon injury for someone new to the sport on a hang board?
I realize that 3) may be a bit tough to answer, but any help is appreciated.

Boulder more for strength gains. And mix up your work outs to include days of hard bouldering, and days of cardio climbing (lapping climbs several times till failure). Aside from that, just enjoy the movement, work on your technique/footwork, and have a lot of fun. Concentrating on the grades is a lot less fun than getting out enjoying your time out.
