Does anyone else have trouble getting the DB up on say incline press? I always struggle with the first rep, once they are up I can bang out reps no problem but that initial lift is killer. It is forcing me to lower my weights as I am training without a spotter now, any ideas on how to overcome this? I usually use my knees to "kick" the weight up to my shoulders and then press. It is more frustrating mentally because I know I can go heavier I just can't get it started.

I bet you did. Yeh man, pullups are the king of back exercises!
