    Continuous lag with incline dumbbell press

    I made gains with bi/back/tri/even shoulders. Yet I still struggle to get past the 70 lb db's for incline. 5-7 reps.

    On tri day I even close-grip 5 sets of 60-70 lb db to hit chest.

    I do 15 sets per body part, 3-4 times per week

    Dumbbell bench is ok. 80-90's 6+ reps. Much easier to get weight to starting point.

    If it is a matter of grip strength? I can feel if it's going to be rough day when I pick up the 70 lb off the rack.

    For other dumbbells I use, or work up to

    shoulder 60's+ lb press
    back 80-90 lb 1 arm row
    tri 40-50 lb 1 arm overhead
    bi 50 lb alternate curl

    They aren't lagging. Be patient and gain weight.
    Experience, not just theory

    dumbbells are difficult to progressively overload with and you won't up the weight very quickly. Try something else besides dumbbells and gain weight?
