Nice!
I'm still pressing my 24KG @84KG BW
I am GTGing Barbell Press now. up to 42.5KG for 3 reps (I think I can do 4 reps but don't want to risk hurting my lower back).

Just make sure you keep your quads, abdominals, and glutes tight and you shouldn't hurt your back. But, of course, don't do anything that hurts or doesn't feel right!
