Depends on how you might be straining or your form pushing against the pads or set up!?
What about trying a different quad exercise and seeing if you still get the pain?
What about some trigger point work on the belt line/back of waist and or the glutes? Are they sore there? I might bet, yes.

Your hamstrings are way too tight.
Get a buddy, lie on your back legs straight out. Have your buddy lift one leg straight up. I bet you are tight at about 90 degrees, or less.
Stretch those hammy's!!
That is the number one cause of back pain and knee pain in the Army. Truth.

I agree with the stretching. If your hams are tight that can cause your hips to become out of alignment which can cause low back pain.
The pain can also radiate down the legs.

If it is radiating down the legs, you are way too tight and/or may have injured your lower back

Does your back ever hurt like this when doing anything else? (Football, soccer, or just running around with kids or dog. Normal stuff)

Wow, you guys have helped so much! Did expect it. Lol. Yes I do have horribly tight hamstrings. Which I have been stretching frequently now. Also what has seemed to help is adding more weight onto my back exercises to strengthen it. My back has been much better. Now it's the usual knew hurting when I bend. I know I sound pretty worn and old but I'm only 22. So I was worried. Thank you all for your help!

You may find your glutes, deep core etc are really tight as well. I had the same sort of problem but would present itself when running for an extended period. Went to physio and was told it was due to a weak core. Been doing alot of deep core work, transverse abdominus activation before lifting or running and pain has been getting progressively less. Just my .02

Awesome info here to answer OP's questions. I myself have the same issues and sure enough hammys are super tight. I can't even get to a 90 degree angle, pathetic. Also when squatting I feel my hips can't flex properly to get a deep squat and knees protrude past ankles causing knee pain.
