back squat - lower back sore?

When I've been getting heavy on low bar squats, I've found my lower back getting sore. Is this normal?

Re: back squat - lower back sore?

Not unless your lower back strength is not up to par or you are leaning forward too far.

(this assumes you mean soreness beyond the typical 'tired and sore from squatting heavy, and even my eyebrows hurt' sort of sore)

Not normal. Show us a video of your back squats.
