What is the secret to gripping this?  I did it for the first time ever today and got 116 pounds, but it felt heavy as hell.

You have to find your sweet spot. It is not the same for everyone. Some lift higher, som lower, on the implement.

Squeeze really hard. 😉

And make sure you get your thumb locked in before the lift.  Numbers will go up quick with some training.

Wrap your fingers over the thumb?

No.  Just make sure you have a good grip with the thumb.  It's key.

You aren't allowed to wrap your fingers over the thumb like a hook grip.  It would take some massive hands to do that effectively anyway.
