Setting an arched position does two things for us in bench pressing: 1.) it changes the angle of the shoulder in a more productive angle that keeps us safe and allows for fuller muscle engagement, and 2.) provides the shoulders a way to pull back shortening the arms, fire off the lats, and shorten the range of motion even more by lifting the sternum up towards the bar.
