I never liked the hold part (bottoming the pedal) and then shutting the valve in a two person bleed job. I always shut the bleeder valve "before" the pedal reaches bottom (and while fluid is still coming out). This eliminates any possibility of air being allowed back in the system. I also bleed each corner one more time after air bubbles have totally disappeared.
