Mistakes Scrunching shoulders, placing hands too far front or back
Get it right Palms should be just beside chest when you’re lying in prone (face down) position. As you lift upper body off mat, pull shoulders back and squeeze shoulder blades. Once you feel a stretch in your lower back, stop and hold the pose. Elbows need not be straightened, depending on your back’s flexibility.
