As of right now I haven't attended the school, so I figure asking a pro is the next best thing.

I am currently shooting a 55 pound bear montana. I am pretty sure I am over bowed. But my biggest problem is that I am unable to feel back tension. I am tired in my bicep and arm muscles after shooting maybe 100 arrows today.

How do I feel back tension? Also, is it better to use a light or heavy bow to feel it?

It is possible that 55 pounds is not too much weight for you if your bow is stacking or hitting a wall before you get to ful draw this will make it hard to get consistent back tension also makes the bow unforgiven and hard to shoot. If the bow draws smoothly all the way back to your anchor then 55 pounds coud to be too much weight for you if you bow will draw smoothly to your anchor and you can hold 2 or 3 seconds without shaking you are not over bowed. I anchor at my ear lobe this automatically gets my bow hand elbow in line with my arrow at full draw giving me automatic back tension without ever having to think about it. It's there automatically every time. Don't go past your earlobe this will over extend you and make your bow arm push on release also makes your release hand pluck on release all bad things so don't over extend.
Good luck
