    Start with elbows slightly in front of the bar and straighten your wrists a bit more (middle knuckle up). Take a big breath and bear down on your abs (keep ribs down). Then when you press, for this strict variation, you will need to get you head back (out of the way) so that you can push the bar *back* to your shoulders (you are looping it around currently). I would re-read the Press section of the blue book again as well.

    Thank you. I will do this and take another video.

    Better, but you are still starting with your elbows behind the bar instead of slightly in front and your head isn't really moving back much to get out of the way of the bar. If you don't want to move your head, you will need to do the 2.0 version with hip reach discussed in the blue book.
