Upon receiving the bar, the lifter’s/athlete’s upper back/shoulder blades should be at 100% tightness. The bar should be lowered not necessarily by the triceps or shoulders, but by continually creating a TIGHTER upper back(the back musculature being the bow, and the bar the arrow). This in turn aids in lifting the ribcage to meet the bar which protects the shoulder girdle.
Yes, lats are involved as well. This will be addressed at a later date.
