I just put mine on the stand again from straddling the seat. I gave the forks a good downward push while pushing on the foot lever of the stand on the rebound, was ready with the front brake in case it didn't go up on the 1st attempt but all went as planned and it went right up. No strain, no lifting just a few well timed movements, using my weight on the stand and the stored energy of the forks.
The next time someone is around to record this, I'll post a video for the nonbelievers.
