    Need to go more down

    If a guy is doing push ups but he is not doing it correctly. You have to go down and then you have to push yourself up. If a person is not going down properly so can we say?"You need to go more down". If a person is doing an exercise in which you have to lift the dumbell and then you have to let it go down but he is not doing it properly. Can we say? "You need to take it more down".

    Look at my corrections above, particularly to your punctuation.

    Your suggested phrase is not natural. For the pushups (press-ups in BrE), you would say "You need to lower yourself down further" and for the dumbbell lifting "You need to lower it further".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
