In brief: NO!!

It is never normal to have pain while exercising.
If you are having "chest" pain it would be best to get evaluated immediately. For your back pain it may have more to do with technique. I would get with a licensed physical therapist or trainer and have them help you.

In brief: Chest pain

If you are having chest and back pain consistently you need to get checked, you may have heart problems/ or. Disc problems to account for your back pain.
