This video is part of a series demonstrating the second part of the warm up: dynamic stretching.
For the straight leg walk, keep the leg straight and lift it up as high as you can by contracting the quads and hip flexors. As you bring your foot back to the ground, aim to finish with a slight scuffing or pawing motion. Never go to the point of strain nor force the movement. Only lift the leg as high as you can with comfort.
