post bench press sore back2589

After someone suggested a link "so you think you can squat?" on youtube by EliteFTS i came across "so you think you can bench?" as well. It corrected some form issues that i had with the bench press. Yesterday I did a heavy bench workout (5x5) and today my back is rather sore, ranging from the rhomboids down the paraspinals and into the lats a little. They mentioned something about a sore back but I was wondering if anyone had in comments on the matter? Should that many areas of my back be sore?

Yes. Most people do not engage their back correctly when benching- the fact tat you're sore means you worked those muscles in way that you're not used to doing, but it's nothing to worry about. -EK

I don't remember what the link was but go to youtube and type in: "so you think you can squat?" or "so you think you can bench?" and it comes up with a series of videos of guys from EliteFitnessSystems correcting peoples form.

Here's the link to the bench pressing:
