Body Pump and Back Pain

I do body pump @ 3 X per week. Lately I have been having back pain afterwards. Am never sure if it is back pain or muscle ache.

I moved up in weights for the chest section last night which was basically bench pressing and my upper back has been so painful today. How do know when f it is a problem pain or just muscle pain?

I don't know what is normal. My back often hurts during the squat tracks, when I have the heaviest weights in the bar. Is that normal?

I try to follow the instructors advice for technique and correct anything she says.

Do other people get back pain? I never used to get any problems when the weights were lower.

Could you be tensing your shoulders? Can't see why you would have back pain from bench press or squatting if your technique is good.
