    bench press and leg drive


    is it just me but i have a hard time getting the hang of doing leg drive when i use dumbbells when BP, if im using a bar i can get "under" the bar better to get my legs into the press. anyone else have this problem, if not what do you do to set up under the DB's

    You really don't want to have as much leg drive with the DBs as it is intended as a supplemental lift.
