Struggled with the same, at home. Skip to 2:40, or so.

Thanks. It has great tips for getting the weight to your knees and how to bail on it. I was already using the motion he showed for getting down and back up.

I will check him out more and see if he has tips for incline. That's where I really struggle getting the weights into the right position.

No idea if this is what he said or not, here's what I do.

Sit on the seat, back up not against the bench. DBs one on each side parallel to the seat. The DB handles parallel to the seat. Basically do a seated deadlift and pull them up and set them on top of your thighs. The handles vertical, your hands in a neutral grip. Keep elbows tucked, as you lay your back against the bench pull/almost slide the DBs towards your hip bone. When you're ready to start, keeping your elbows tucked pull the weight up to your chest still with a neutral grip. Then when the DBs are at your chest, rotate your hands out and you're in position for the first rep.

Pretty much bang on. Getting them to my knees like that is new and will help. The rest I was doing.

Now have to find something that helps a bit more in getting them from knees to shoulder position during incline benching. I will experiment on variations on Saturday.

If you have the DBs up by your hip when you're laid against the bench, getting them to the chest isn't too tough at that point. With your elbows tucked, pull them towards the floor and rotate your hand so that now the DB is laying on you, from the hip going up towards your chest, probably ending somewhere on your rib cage. Then just pull your hands and the DBs towards your chest to your point of comfort. Rotate your hands out of the neutral grip into position to press.

That's pretty much what I do but I have serious rotator cuff issues on one side and that last bit from upper chest to DB swung out in lifting position is very tough on me. I end up doing a really weird twist to get dumbbell in position that is really hard on my back. Was really hoping there was some new, magical way. In my searching I found some new rotator cuff exercises that may help (thanks Self), fingers crossed. Or I just tap out at 60 or 65 lbs on inclines and wait for a Covid protocols to pass and they get barbells back in the gym.
Part of me thinks "I'm 55, how fit do I need to be" but I am vain and like how shirts fit and look when I'm fit and I think my girlfriend deserves a man who keeps himself somewhat in shape.

Believe it or not I actually went the to gym this morning.
Since working from home I've gotten a little bit of a belly. I worked on the fifth floor and took the stairs everyday, up and down at least 2-3 times a day. There was a quarter mile walking track that I would do at least two laps everyday in all but the most inclement weather. That doesn't happen working from home but increased snacking does. Plus it's the time of year that people tend to put on a few extra pounds with the cooler weather, although this year the social aspect isn't there nearly as much.
Plus when I gain weight it doesn't spread evenly; it all goes to my belly. I get that skinny fat look with a pooched out gut.
