Overhead PB

Well done,

It's hard to see but if your rest the bar on the top of the chest and delts during the push you'll get better power transfer to the bar. Holding it just in the hands means that power needs to move down the arms and you lose a fair bit of it. 

I rest the bar in a similar position to if I was about to do a front squat.

Unfortunately I know this but I just don't have the flexibility to have an Oly front rack position.

When I front squat my Oly rack is with two fingers on the bar each hand, hahaha.
