So I'll try to describe it the best I can:

The exercise in question is in a reverse pushup position facing up with arms behind you. The points that touch the ground are your hands (or rather hands on dumbbells) and heels.
With two dumbbells the exercise consists of alternating db presses from this position.

Anyone know the correct name for this lift? Phone Post

This position only that the legs are straight and you're using dumbbells.

Are you thinking of Weighted Reverse Pushup Downs with Dumbells?

Yes starting with the dumbbell behind you gouging the floor, you lift one up into an overhead db press. Then back down and repeat with the other. Is there an official name for this? Phone Post

Reverse plank?

I can't visualize a press. Or a gymnast's bridge perhaps?

Never seen that lift then. Do you lift straight up or do twist into a side plank?

I would call it the "I'm gonna make my orthopedic surgeon a shitload of money" press.

Sounds like a crossfit-type of exercise. I wouldn't be surprised if it was included in the next crossfit games. Phone Post

That looks like it would hurt more than it would help.

I think naming it would cause people to assume you've done the exercise, which would be rediculous. Ergo, no name.
