Impressive...not only the weight, but the lack of an excessive arch. You only arch just enough so your upper back is brought into the picture. This is how I bench as well...good job.

Thanks bro! I can't seem to arch any more than that. I'm pretty sure I need work on my approach/technique but I have some type of back/nerve impingement when I try for a higher arch.

Unless you are going to compete in PL competitions, the way you do it is fine. Your shoulders are still locked back and protected.

I do plan on competing in PL comps. Will my technique be accepted? Sorry i don't know any of the PL rules.

Oh yeah it would...I was speaking more along the lines of maximizing your pressing power by way of ridiculous arch :).
