Rippetoe says not to drop the hips further once shins are at the bar, but other coaches say you should drop the hips. I have a strong urge to drop my hips. What's your take on it?

I have long arms and legs with a relatively short torso so my setup looks very horizontal.

I've found that practicing in the mirror helps. For me pushing my ass out as far as I can, keeping a big chest, and looking straight ahead works well.
