Default question about shocks

I am in the process of changing out my rear shocks. I wanted to see how they work and pushed down on the new ones and was easily able to compress the shocks. Is that supposed to happen? I would have thought that it would give a lot more resistance to my small amount of weight compared to the weight of the car.

Try to compresses it very fast and then you may see a difference.

The design is different from the plain hydraulic shocks of years ago. The faster the piston action the slower the rate of compression is.
