Overhead Press Grip

The weight of the bar is in your hands. Keep your joints stacked and in a straight line. Unrack the bar in this position.

Push Press Grip

Think about setting up almost like a front squat, fingers underneath the bar. Your body actually unracks the bar. This is an open grip. Your thumbs are not wrapped around the bar at the beginning.
