I've seen this dysfunction a ton in the gym (suffered from it myself) when people squat so I wanted to share this video. I've followed this guy for a couple of years now and his advice has always worked for me. What I used to think were just the affects of age (back pain, knee pain, etc) turned out to be muscle imbalances. Foam rolling, stretching, and corrective exercises as unglamorous as they are, have kept me in the gym and this video in particular has done wonders for my squat and keeping the weight off my lower back.

dk,
aside from foam rolling, what stretches and corrective exercises are you performing to help with this?

Sorry man... nothing glamorous....just laying on the floor and bringing my knees to my chest and lunges. Shit like this is boring as hell, but it keeps you going.

These are the types of things I do with everyone I work with regardless of what they do. Not only does it keep you going but it makes you stronger as well.
