So lately i've been trying to work on my bench form while arching my back and for some reason a lot of the time when I get a liftoff and unrack the weight out over me my upper back separates instead of keeping tightly squeezed together. Any tips on how to maintain my form and prevent this from happening?

Go to the elitefts website and find the "so you think you can bench" video series that Dave Tate did. It explains in great detail how to stay tight while taking a handoff and even some exercises that will mimic how your back tightness should feel.
