I would just not try to go as deep, keep those elbows tight. Both of those things should protect your lower back more as you get stronger and stronger.
Thanks BtB. I appreciate the help as always

Weird session today. Worked with a friend of mine on form, but got interrupted during the session. During the first go, I did

Squats @ 135
Bench, 3 triples @ 185
DB Row 5 x 105
Deadlifts 5 x 135
BB row 5 x 135
BTNP 5 x 45

Next round, this afternoon was rushed. 25 minutes total.

185 x 6 triples - 10 breathes between sets

DB Row
85 x 20
85 x 20

BTNP - everything was fried by this point
135 x 10
135 x 4
135 x 2 -> repeat weight next week. I can get it if things aren't so crazy

DB Curl
40 x 10
40 x 7
40 x 5 -> progress
