If I remember later I will post a video from Andy Bolton talking about this. As a world record deadlifter, he knows a thing or two about efficient and powerful technique.

I was asking what Steve does, based on how he worded that sentence. Like I said, it could have been a misinterpretation on my behalf. I don't retract the scapulas, and I never advocate doing so. But if Steve did, I'd be open to hearing his side of the topic.
