Check out this awesome screen shot from the video linked to in the post! On the left you can see the athlete doing a press, heels down, legs straight, pressing through the bar. In the middle image, you can see the athlete doing a push press just at the moment the bar leaves the shoulder and the athlete has driven the legs and hips into the bar. And the picture on the right shows the receiving position of a push jerk where the athlete retreated under the bar to receive the load.
