    Sounds like an issue with your form. Try keeping the chest up, concentrate on pushing with the chest and contract the muscles at the top of each rep.

    Are you talking about the negative portion of the rep? You should try keeping dumbbells at 90 degree angle and keep the negative rep parallel with the chest. There are several videos you can view online to give you a general idea.

    There's nothing wrong with lifting in the 6-8 rep range. You may consider an arms day to strengthen your triceps. Have you just started doing flat DB presses? It will take time to strengthen the stabilizers.
