Focus on working with weights that you're able to lift properly. Flexibility is important, but when I see lower backs rounding its because someone is trying to pull more than they're ready for.

Out of curiousity, do you personally pull your shoulders back when pulling? I could be misinterpretting what you're saying here...

The reason I asked is because I've heard people recommend retracting the scapulas, [IIRC] when coaches like Penlay and Rippe highly recommend against it. [/IIRC].
