Scapula Location During Floor Press

Am I supposed to be doing anything specific with my scapula during the floor press? Contracting, depressing? Letting rest natural, due to the different range of motion?

I always retract, just like a regular bench press. Lats flexed, arms in

Right on. Elbows tucked, bring the chest up to meet the bar. Just because you can’t arch much doesn’t mean that you can’t do everything else perfectly.

Thanks
