    Hey Crespo. Good work mate.

    Here's a couple notes to help you push your skills further.

    -because the first jump is going to jump up and the the right, you can arc left going into the squash as an antic rather than going straight down to f08 (hope you know what I mean)
    -when you take off make sure you don't slow down before the lift off. Take a look at the timing and spacing on the top control from f08-f13. Firstly, that's a little too many frames. but secondly take a look at the spacing from f12-13. Can you see how the top control slows down and then pops bigger on f14?
    -Also with this pose on f13, try to keep the stretch in-line with the path of action. He is leaning too far to the right.
    -f76. It just pops bigger and doesn't show either the speeding up or the push off. Try slowing out of the pose at f75 first and keep it touching the ground (and in-line with the direction of the jump). Also watch out for the instant slow down on f77. That speed comes out of nowhere and then disappears - if you know what I mean.

    There's some more little things I can see but those things I mentioned are the big ones. You will see the other stuff with time.
    Good work sir, keep it up!
