The same principle is used on assault courses to move under cargo nets. If you lie flat and try to worm your way along, you’ll get caught and snagged and take forever to get anywhere. But go up on all hands and knees, keep your elbows tucked in, keep your bum up and head right down at ground level and you’ll be able to zoom along under that net and clear it in no time.
