The only exercise that really makes my lower back sore anymore (and worries me a little) are deadlifts.
I used to feel it in my back on squats, but I was just doing them wrong. With the standing military press, it just took a little time for my back to adjust and get used to it. I used to do seated military presses or dumbbell presses.
