I have been researching & its leading me to sciatic nerve but that's not what I have. When I put pressure on my back e.g.squats with barbell on back,when I squat its a sharp pain in my lower left back. Hurts when I lean forward or back. Can't so weighted squats right now,just sticking to lunges/Bulgarian lunges for now. Suggestions? Anyone experienced this??

Hey, you really need to concentrate on having proper form when doing squats as incorrect form can lead to endless knee and back problems so start off by doing bodyweight squats only -no barbells or dumbbells..when squatting it's important to kind of let your butt lead you and not let your knees trail over your toes and put all your weight on your heels as you squat. Best thing is to put a chair behind you (or imagine one) and squat down onto it. Seems easy to most people but most people do it wrong and this leads to all...

I agree with renay, don't do anything that causes pain like that. I practiced for a long time with light weight barbell squats with gradual increases until I was confident my form was correct. Squats are an easy thing to get wrong. Maybe try leg presses for a while as well.

Maybe your leaning to much forward . Try doing the sissy squats great for proper form and strengthening knees
