Yes. Internally rotated throughout the pull. This sets you up for proper mechanics pulling down under the bar. It's not needed earlier in the pull, but it has to be in place for the third pull. No way you can instantly internally rotate properly at the top of the pull when it's time to get moving down. And if it's not instant, you're too slow transitioning under the bar.
