Russian Leg Circle is a taxing exercise of skill and continuous movement, in which one outstretched leg is swept forward under lifted hands, after which the other leg is hopped over the extended one and the full circle completed.
Turn-the-pancake involves two partners in alternate lifts and push-ups. From up position (above) one is lowered by the other, they roll over together and repeat.
Crab Walk can be done sidewise, forward or backward. It strengthens the arms, the legs and the trunk muscles.
Bent-knee Push-up, variation of standard push-up, is done with feet held high and is good for building up shoulders.
Troika is a balance and endurance exercise. From squat position, thrust one leg out, then back to squat position.
Clean-the-floor does just that as boy, sitting with his arms extended over his head, propels himself backward or forward across the floor by straightening or drawing up his legs, shoving or pulling by digging in his heels.
The Clock, or Go-round, uses a skater's crossover walk to propel the body, with back held straight, clockwise around the pivotal arm, which supports body's weight.
Rolling Logs is fun for all, in class or at home, as five kids (or more) roll over and over in unison while carrying a sixth on their backs. The girl on top must hold herself rigid; she starts at one end and finally rolls off the other.
Injured-fox Walk, a children's favorite, is a strength and balance exercise of hopping around on two hands and one foot while the "injured" foot is held up high.
