Sounds to me like your hamstrings are really tight. This guy has a really great series on youtube for correcting squat form. Here ya go:

Does tight mean not flexible? I dont think my thighs are the problem because I dont feel it there. I feel it in my back. I will try the wall walk out of this video.

Quick Video

Any chance you could take a quick video of you squatting and then we could see where the problem might be?

Ding ding ding! This guy nailed it 100%. Watch the video he linked and check out some links on improving hamstring/hip flexor flexibility. Read these too:

Thanks for the links. I will try the tips. One question. Why are my harmstrings too tight when my back rounds. I dont feel it in the harmstrings. I thought the problem lies in my back, not in my harmstrings.

@ burton I postet a video of mine squatting.

Your back is rounding b/c your hamstrings are tight. And the reason you're not feeling much in your hamstrings is b/c you have not learned how to properly engage them in your squat. Focus on pushing your butt back instead of just sitting down. Feel the difference in your hams?

It looks like you are curving your back when you get to the bottom of your squat. This creates an arch which doesn't have the same support as a completely straight spine. You are also pointing your elbows forward as you move down. Keeping a bar on your shoulders when you practice will help.

The big thing with flexibility in your quads, hamstrings and glutes is it allows a full range of movement when you squat. If you don't have proper flexibility, your body will compensate by your back bending in order to get all the way down.
