Front Press Problems

Hey! I have this problem when I front-press, I seem to have to lean back to get the bar over my chin… is this normal? or am I just (as always) Freakishly un-flexible?

If that avatar is you of course you have to lean backwards. Reading your profile and history of motion, you can’t be unaware of when it feels right and when it don’t.

Doesn’t sound too unusual. I arch my lower back/chest out/shoulders back or I tend to nail myself in the chin. If I’m not in this position it doesn’t feel like I’m in the groove. Someone please correct me if I’m wrong about this being proper form for presses to the front.
