  2. Interlace the fingers, palms facing out as you push upwards.
  3. Next,drop your interlaced hands forward, and then take your hands and interlace them behind your back.
  4. Straighten through the crown of the head, brace your core and squeeze your quad muscles (also taking care to not lock the knees), while slowly bending your torso over.
