The excessive arch originated as a way to manipulate the rules, which in powerlifting state that the upper back and butt must be on the bench at all times.
The rules don’t say anything specifically about the lower back touching the bench, which makes sense. Given the natural curve of the spine and the fact that people have glutes – powerlifters often more than their fair share – a lifter’s lower back won’t touch the bench unless he lifts his feet off the ground.
In short, it wasn’t technically illegal to use a big arch. Since people like to win, the powerlifting big arch was born.
