I'd have to see your form to accurately comment, but I'd say you're fine as long as the lift meets this criteria:

1) Back straight (maintaining nuetral curvature of the lumbar spine)

2)Heels stay on the floor and are the primary 'drive' spot.

3)Your hips stay lower than your shoulders.

You want the musculature of your back invovled. Those muscles are hugely powerful and strengthening them will help you function better as a bi-pedal being (standing, running, jumping, carrying things...pretty much anything you can think of).
