It is tough to resist using leg drive to get the weight up (push-press).
Jason Ferruggia advises using a little push to get the first rep aloft for the sake of shoulder health. Also, I've noticed that Wendler himself does not lower the bar to his clavicles. Thibaudeau says raise your arms overhead and just let them drop. Wherever your hands end up, don't lower the bar past that. With me, that's about chin height. I've noticed that Ferruggia lowers to chin height also.
