Can you clean and press two 100lb dumbells?
A straightforward question, asked from idle curiosity.
Standing DB press seems such a basic movement, yet I never see anyone doing it. I've been trying them recently as a way of getting back into pressing. They seem a little kinder on my elbow and shoulder problems.
This got me wondering how many people on here can clean two 45kg/100lb DB from the floor and standing strict press them overhead.
If so, how many reps?
When my shoulder recovers this a bit more, I'll have a go, but I'm by no means hopeful.
230 strict press @ 220; bodyweight+187 X 4 dips @ 180; 403 front squat @ 210; 10 000 push-ups.
Ignoring irrelevant credentials since I was 17.

i can clean them from the floor but find it very hard to get in to postion to press over head, i always use a barbell. That it pretty impressive pressing with two 45kg db.

I don't know if I could clean them or not. But like Lee, I have problems getting heavy DBs into position for pressing

Never tried it with 45kgs but Ive used 41kgs for a set of 5, cleaned from the floor. Dont remember if I strict pressed or used a lil kneebend since its was some time ago.
I tried a one hand barbell clean and press not so long ago, its a humbling experience using a oly bar. Managed 50kg after a couple of tried =)

I do a variation of the one arm DB clean and press. It is called the one arm bent press. I can do 110lbs but I am working with barbells now and dropped it to 95lbs b/c of balance issues.

That would be a worthy challenge. I don't think I could do it but it would be fun to work up to it. I'm going to put it on the list for later in the year.

A worthy challenge. I should probably find out if I can press the DBs before attempting to clean them.

Personal tips that I've learned along my still short journey:
Leave your ego at the door.
Prepare. Showing up dehydrated, hungry, and tired will guarantee failure.
Be ready to fight for that grinder of a PR.
Listen and learn. Absorb everything you can, and assimilate that knowledge.

I've done 1 before I think. Not sure I have the co-ordination for doing 2 simultaneously. May give it a go next week.
Don't call it a comeback

I've done 80's. If I had access to dumbells I'd do more pressing. BB's hurt my shoulders.
Current PRs at 242, raw w/ wraps- 525, 355, 605, 1485

Good gods, no.
I've power cleaned and strict pressed 60kg (~132lbs)! Um, yeah, so not all that close, really.
Dumbbells, I suspect I could do 2 x 30kg, because I used to do DB press, and I should still be able to do a decent weight with them (relative to my other lifts, I mean). Then again, I used to press one at a time, so... not so sure. :/
edit: I can push press a good deal more than that, but 200lbs might be a bit much, even so, lol.
41yo, 6'2", ~96kg
best lifts: sq 160kg / bp 115kg / dl 210kg / c&p 82.5kg
