I am not a powerlifter but I suspect a lot of you may use Dumbell bench pressing in your routine as an assistance exercise. My problem is that I am having trouble stabilizing the weight in my left hand before the lift even starts. I am up to 60lbs x10 reps and since my main goal is strength, I want to use 65lbs for this exercise. The problem is, every time I try to get the 65’s in position to lift, I cannot hold the weight in my left hand so i end up dropping it. I think the problem is my left shoulder, but I am not sure what to do about it. My right arm can hold it just fine. Has anyone else had this problem or something similar? Has anyone had success fixing this issue or one similar? If so, what did you do? What do you guys think my problem is?
