Default Jerk position

Before the dip/drive in the jerk, should your butt be "on" and twist your feet into the floor to create stability? I've heard of other cues similar to this for squatting and midline stability and wondered if it applies to the jerk as well. My lower back tends to get smoked when I do heavy jerks and I'm guessing one issue is I'm overextending. Thanks!
