The Kicking Legs Snapping Back Momentum Weight Release NO NO!

When releasing dumbells from bench press...

DON'T USE MOMENTUM FROM RAISING YOUR LEGS TO ROCK YOUR UPPER BODY AND WEIGHTS INTO SITTING POSITION!!!

You generally want to avoid momentum when handling weights...This particular contraindicated movement puts the spine, disks, and muscles of the lower back at tremendous risk of injury even without weights, and any muscles involved in this maneuver or in supporting the weights are at risk. Please carefully put the weights down.
