Your head should be aligned with your body, this will prevent you from any kind of injury. 

Make sure to come to the ground completely. Your chest should be brushing the floor every time you go down. Then, go up until you arms are straight. 

If you are a beginner then do not hasten to try a variation. First, master the basics and then go for variations.
