RE: The "Do You Even Deadlift" Clinic
You don't need to worry about engaging the lats. They will engage automatically. If you look at a deadlift from the side, the shoulders will be slightly ahead of the vertical line created by the bar so that the arms are at a slight angle back towards the bar, rather than going down in a straight line from the shoulder joint to the bar. Without the lats engaging, this angle would simply be impossible to maintain and the arms would hang straight down from the shoulder joint.
