Default are my triceps weak?

So i started to use dumbbell bench press for chest/triceps day and I noticed that my triceps are having a hard time keeping the weight balanced. I can max out with 75 pounds for 10 times, however when i bar bench press i can do 225 pounds for 8 reps. I was thinking of doing triceps twice a weak. Monday on chest/Triceps day and Friday on shoulder day.

It's not necessarily your triceps that are weak. More stabilizing muscles come into play when you use dumbbells. If you want to get better at doing DB bench, then do DB bench more often.
