what's with the paper towels? are you allergic to rubber coated iron?

that's a pretty short range of motion but nice weight. I would drop the weight some and do a full rom. Tell your buddy to get a purse to match his gloves.

Nice job, bro. Strong **** for your age! I think I could press the 40s back then, lol. Take advantage of the DB Press and get the full ROM. Those bells should go lower than a BB bench press would go. Stop lifting your ass off the bench too and definitely tell your buddy to get a purse for those gloves ^^

Thats too heavy for you and if you get loose at all your looking at a broken nose or missing teeth especially since your buddy is a tool and the paper towels will let the handles slip if they want. Drop down to 75's and do them properly and it will help you in the long run. Your elbows will thank you one day. You are strong but at 16 and 160lbs no need to get ahead of your self.

Lower the weight and do a proper press.

Tell your friend to stop touching you while doing reps. That's bad spotting.

Range of motion could be better but still it aint bad.

Only thing I can say that others havent, dont drop the weights.

I know yours are rubber, but dont get in that habbit cause when you do that with iron the shafts get bent and no long fit in the rack.

I am not a fan of the ROM, but some guys don't like getting a good stretch, so why use DB then. Personally, I would drop the weight and get a nice stretch. For 16 yrs old that is nice weight, just be careful of injury and ego lifting.

Nice, I won't repeat what everyone else already said. Is it just me, or do you and your weight lifting "buddy" match?

All suggestions aside, that's some nice weight to be comfortable with. Good job!

Hey buddy, as a lot of people have been saying, i would definately take the weight down a couple notches. Really he should not be giving you a spot in this case especially by the 4th rep. You want to bang it out by yourself. Drop the weight to 70's, and get a much deeper range of motion. I wasnt touching the 90s at 16 years old so you got some time to go before you should be using that weight again but again, ditch the spot. It just looks like you are one of those guys in the gym doing too much weight for their own good and you dont want to look like one of those guys.

Huh, I didn't know certain dumbbells came with age requirements. Learn something every day.

clearly they dont. and yes there are obviously many 16 year olds who can press 90 pounds. in this certain case he cannot. im simply saying he is pressing too much weight. you cant honestly tell me you think that is good form. in this specific case it just seems as though he is more worried about putting as much weight as possible up without worrying about good form, something that is all too common in gyms and from what i see typically happens with younger people.

No its not, hes forcing his reps past what he can do, with dumbells, you want a spotter like that, or you could smash your face or something.

Its just like with regular benching, if your aiming for 5 reps but can only hit 4, and you want to force the final rep, you have a spotter help you, but you make sure hes making you work for the 5th rep.

but i think the spotter came in too early. although i dont believe he had good form at all he was still reppin off his half weights and the spotter jumped in and basically pushed up the last ones.

You guys realize the poster hasn't been here since he posted this thread. He posted one other thread and same thing. Why waste your time on this?

He wanted us to pump up his ego, instead, got shut down when we gave constructive criticism, lol.
