stretch and squash

It is about the stretch and squash principle.Even though everybody know about it, i just wanted to post it as i found it interesting and thought it might help some animators solve their jumps. Don't forget to fully extend the legs (or whatever the character uses... arms?) during the lift off and to extend the limbs before the touchdown as well (unless there is a specific reason for NOT doing it).
