Thanks brother
Back pain? No, that's not normal.

Power shrugs allow for a lot of extra weight and it's best to easy into them before going too intense or adding too much volume.

If you tweaked something I would lay off them for a couple weeks or until you feel 100%, and then test them out with moderate weight.
