Brief Answer:
Muscle sprain or tendonitis likely.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for posting your query.
The pain in the shoulders and in front and back that you have is likely to be due to lifting of weights causing muscle sprain or tendonitis. You need to consult an orthopedician for proper investigations and treatment. Till then mild pain killers, rest and hot compress will help.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Wishing you good health.
