Try it. You definitely don't want to be hyperextended, but activating the glutes to prevent that during a jerk dip/drive is tough. I would focus more on ab tension as a counter to lumbar hyperextension. Because your feet will be moving and the CoP will be shifting during the movement, you may find it impossible to really do the foot twisting thing.
