Easing, first thing. it is simple.
Go onto the pivot tutorials, there will be tonnes of them there (Like mine! :P)

To da beginner thread with you!

It was almost impossible to see what the hell was going on. Good look at some tuts, they help a lot.

i think that the mods/admins should have a button to send threads as a post to other threads, such as this to the beginners section.

Work on easing and stiffness and then it might look good.

I realise I am new to this forum, but not to animations.
Focus not on more frames but more movements. For example, unless you need the file to be very small for uploading, you should make people turn in air before they hit the ground. (not sideways one frame and upright the next)
Hope that helped.
