concentrate on good posture. the pain/strain is probably from prolonged sitting in a bad position not the fact that you are sitting for so long. if you have even the slightest arch in the lower back while sitting your posture is wrong. you really shouldn't be using the back rest at all. think about when you are standing and what the arch in you back is like. the lower and the mid back all arch forward. when most people sit the arch switch's to mostly backwards which is unnatural and cause most people pain after time.

like ripped said go see a chiro. he or she would also probably have some good advice for you. but honestly tryin to strengthen you lower back i don't think will help much. if you wanted to look at it from a strength stand point i bet you lower back is strong as hell thus you can deadlift a ton. i think focusing on a total core support would be more benificial. with all of my back issues this is what they have preached to me over and over again. alot of chiro's will tell you that weak stomach muscles will lead to more back issues than a weak lower back. most people are stronger and more developed naturally in the back than abs.

Jslep posted some valid pionts. You can be a world class PLer but have some serious weak core strength. I see that with a lot of my patients (As a student physical therapy). Getting a diagnose is a good way to start. A phyisicaltherapist could help you out with that.
