Cannot arch my back during a powerlift bench press - need to go below parallel?

My 1RM on the bench press was just 125 lb. (57 kg), but that was when I touched the barbell to my chest. My elbows had to drop a whopping 10 inches below parallel. But these lifters below needed little range of motion to fully lock out. And they did not go below parallel on the arms. Notice also...
