i believe the video shows that if you are in overextension, then you can’t turn on the erectors or the abs. he says braced extension in the beginning, but then switches to braced neutral later.  personally i like braced neutral than braced extension because that could be interpreted as you should be extended in any part of the back.

as for your question about t-spine as extended, you should be neutral throughout, gentle S curve (or J curve depending on who you talk to).
