Toy soldier

The toy soldier is a calisthenics exercise targeting the hip flexors and legs, which are kicked up one at a time. When each leg is at the top of the kick, the opposing hand touches that foot. It's a common warm-up exercise before athletics, but can also help raise core temperature and mobilize a wide range of muscles and joints prior to training.
