For the Dumbbell Press, how to do you get those heavy dumbbells ready to be DB Pressed? I've been bringing them up on to my quads and then sort of rolling back on to the bench while bringing my quads up with the dumbbells on them.
Are there any easier ways?
Some gyms have DB racks where you can lift them off like you would a barbell, but they are fairly uncommon.
I use the same approach as the OP and haven't had a problem using 100 lbs DBs.
My bigger problem is seated OHP with DBs. It's really tough for me to get 75+ lbs DBs into position especially on my 3rd set. Once I have them up I don't have a problem lifting the weight though. So it's annoying that getting set up is limiting my progress.

Bench: 350 x 1
(DB's are at about 1:24)
Cool, thanks for the help guys.
P.S. Cool video Tom!
