^DUDE WHAT AN INGENIUS INVENTION.. how the hooks swivel around and are attached at all times. i wish more gyms had those.
They work awesome! I love mine and use them all the time.
I didn't mean to sound elitist at all. I think you're missing the point. You've obviously spent some time in the gym, correct? This isn't rocket science. That's all. Sorry if I offended you.Originally Posted by KobeWillVindic8
I'm not sure why but I always subconsciously lift my legs into the air when I push my dumbells into position on flat bench. Then I put my feet on the floor and do my reps.
The only real solutions for this problem would be a spotter or drop the weight down a little, then work back up slowly.
You can try the powerlifting thing where you use your legs and lift your ass off the bench too maybe. Might hurt yourself though
P.S Nobody flame me, i'm emotionally unstablE today!!!!
Those hooks are nice, might have to pick up a set. Is their any stores that carry anything like it? (Dunhams, MC Sports, etc)

I wanna enter that contest. I could use a 1000 bucks.
I do a "Pelvic thrust" type movement to get the weights to my shoulders on incline.
Once there I'm home free.
Flat has never been a problem. Usually on the way down once I hit the bench, my back pops a million times and feels great.
Out of the night that covers me,Black as the Pit from pole to pole,I thank whatever gods may be for my unconquerable soul. In The fell clutch of circumstance I have not winced nor cried aloud. Under the bludgeonings of chance my head is bloody, but unbowed. Beyond this place of wrath and tears looms but the horror of the shade And yet the menace of the years finds, and shall find, me unafraid. It matters not how strait the gate how charged with punishments the scroll,I am the master of my fate: I am the captain of my soul.

To work on your strength right off the chest, set up a bench in the squat rack and put the safety pins as close to your cest as you can and do BB presses starting off the pins. You muscles won't have the luxury of being preloaded in that position as with regular BB presses, ie, ones that start from above.

^great advice.. thanks.
i think i am pretty successful at getting 115 dumbells up on incline. A lot of people say to do one dumbell at a time.
For me, I kind of begin by sitting down on the incline bench. Then i begin a rocking motion and i kick my back and both dumbells back at the same time.
I find that when i go one at a time , it kind of drains my energy and i am not able to get the dumbells up.
