I saw the picture of Sage doing the Sotts press today, so I thought I would try it. Initially, I couldn't even get the bar off my back while in the hole. I think I was pitching forward due to tight hamstrings and poor posterior chain activation. Eventually I could get a few reps by focusing on driving through my heels and extending my lumbar spine. I would still lose control of the bar while lowering it behind my back a couple of inches off my shoulders. What really bugs me is that my wife who never lifts weights could do this easily. Any thoughts?

I think you're probably spot-on with the flexibility issues, and the fact that your wife never lifts weights (and thus, has never followed a fitness program without having to balance gains in strength with attendent flexibility, perhaps) is probably more of a benefit than you might think!
