When you straighten out your back, do it by bending your knees more and pulling your butt towards the ground slightly. Same idea, different implementation. Another way to think about it is to straighten your back by pushing your stomach closer to the top of your thighs.

Don't worry about arching your back. Your spine is more or less neutral and that's fine.
Well said.
