In brief: Correct posture

Avoiding overload by not using heavy weights, using a weight belt, using correct technique.

In brief: Weight belt

You should try a weight belt when using heavy weights.
This helps stabilize your back and support your abdomen. Hopefully this will prevent your back pain during squats.
