Question Safety Question: How can I safely lift 45 lb plates? (safest form)

I was taught to rest one arm on something stable and use the other arm to slide and lift the plate. At the time it worked fine, but I've been out of the gym for a while and lost some upper body strength so rather than a controlled lift I'd swing it up to catch it with the other hand. (I stopped...
