I do my incline/flat bench strictly with dumbbells. I basically have to have someone spot me on the first rep, otherwise I can't get the weights up. Once I get the weights up, I can do my set just fine. Flat bench I normally do (these are individual DB weights): 5x60, 5x65, 5x70, 5x80, 5x90, but anything over 65 or 70lbs, I can't get up by myself. Incline bench I normally do: 5x55, 5x60, 5x65, 5x70, 5x80, but anything over 60 lbs I can't get up by myself. On flat bench, I set the knees on my weights while I'm sitting down, then as I lay backwards I lift my knees up with the weights on them right into position, then begin the press. On incline, I set the weights on my knees and kick the weights up as high as I can, then press them up. I don't know how to explain it, but in the lower portion of the lift (with the weights almost touching my chest), I can't push the weights up. It feels like I'm trying to push up 150lb DB's Do you guys have problems getting the weight you normally do up and need a spot? If not, do you think it's a problem with my form or are my lats/some other muscle just weak?
