We have a new big sub zero freezer. When you close it, it would take an NFL offensive lineman to open it. Is this normal?

The reason for this is because the unit has a great seal on it and when you open it the warm air goes in and then cools drawing the door tightly, this is probably more noticeable in the first 1 or 2 minutes after shutting the door and then trying to reopen it, The more food that is in it the less pressure it will have on this, so if the unit is not completely full then it will even have more suction built up causing this action.
