    Any tips as how to do correct bench press, should your lower back be slightly lifted so as to keep your back bows on the bench?

    Keep you back flat. Arching is for competition and to raise the most at that moment. It does not help build bench. If you are doing bench for chest, keep your elbows out at 90 degrees from the bench. Elbows tucked in at your side build tricep and steal from chest. Do declines and inclines also. Same way.
