This grip reduces the pressure on shoulders and rear delts, focussing the effort right in on the chest. Hold the dumbbells in line with your body (like a hammer grip). Start with the dumbbells down by your sides, either side of your chest. Press the dummbells up over your chest, rather than over your shoulders. No need to fully extend the arms. Keep the dumbbells moving by exploding up, then two to three seconds down.
