    How is you sag? If your sag is not enough, then it will feel stiff.

    That would be the issue then. You need to set the sag assuming you have an air shock.

    Yes, You need to adjust the air pressure in it to where about 25% of the shock travel is used when in your riding position.

    Use a shock pump, not a floor pump. A shock pump is low volume and high pressure, made just for shocks.
