Bad form deadlifting

Today at the gym I was all prepare to do this weights routine:
Deadlifts - 3 set x10
Bench Press - 3 x 10
Underhand Close Grip Lat Pull Down - 3 x 10
Triceps Extension - 3 x 10

After performing the first set of deadlifts with 50kg, I thought I'd challenge myself to complete the other sets with 60kg. When I picked up 60kg barbell I felt an instant twitch in my lower back and quickly had to put down the weight. I didn't pay enough attention to my form. Rookie mistake! Now my back has been hurting all day. 

All I have to say here is that, FORM is very important! Now I think I'll have to rest from training for a day or 2. Not good!
