    What technique are you using and are you talking standing or seated? If seated are you placing each at the end of your leg near your knees? You should be able to kick them up by pressing your leg off the ground and using the momentum to throw the weight back. If you can't pull it off from that position then I tend to think they are too heavy for you. If last resort is needed then

    ....ask for a spot

    I have a problem with initial lift off and bringing them down.

    My shoulders are very finicky. I found the best way if I don't have a spot is to use a bench on a slight incline and kick it back like I'm doing incline and I just lean upright and keep my arms forward alittle and I usually can pump out 85s with out a spot. Anything else I need help on lift off.

    As for putting them down it hurts every time. I've tried multiple ways my shoulders just hate it.hence why I don't do upright row.

    But I have no problems doing behind the head smith presses.

    Might want to lower the weight then or get a spot or use a different exercise to train the same point. No point in risking injury, especially if pain is being felt. Big difference between normal hurting while doing an exercise and actual pain.

    85 db is sufficient if you having to sacrifice form in order to increase weight. If you want to OH press heavy, load up BB in a squat rack... all the weight you'll ever need. lol

    You can kick them up with the knees or get a spotter to give them to you with your arms in position

    Just because you can't get them to the starting position doesnt mean they are to heavy. You need a spotter or for this two spotters work better. I have the same problem, I kick them up with my knees and use momentum but that only goes so far with heavy weight. Try to get some help it waste to much energy fighting the bastards to starting position anyway without spotters.

    When i go heavy on my final set I just ask a someone (who looks capable) to hand me up one of the dumbells and spot me. As long as you get them to the starting position you should be fine, dont be worried about asking people for help

    Yeah kick em up with your knees and keep them close to your body. One at a time works for me when there heavy. but Ive only gotten up to 75s.

    work on your technique. im using up to 115 db for 6 reps seated. if you need to take a second to get hyped up and ready while the weights rest on your knees. out of curiousity how is your form on each rep. be brutally honest

    I have the same problem and I've been advised to do more Powerlifts to strengthen the shoulders.
