When somebody lands, they land with impact, so making the head and legs rise is the exact opposite of what should be done.

The body should come up, rather than stay down. If you know what i mean?
So, instead of it looking like somethings come down on their gut, make it look more like a bounce.

The body would curve upwards, then come back down again.
The more impact, the higher the body rises from the ground.

Try jumping on your bed, just landing how you need it.
Then, just use common sense to make it less of a bounce. Use your knowledge of gravity to perfect it.

That may be wrong, but it looks right in my head.

Edit:
If it's coming downward, the body will bounce up.
So, if it was to land from different angles, the back-bounce would be varied. Use common sense again, for that.

ah i think i get you, so its really the complete opposite to what i did? so instead of the arms and legs going up, they would go down? and instead of the body staying flat it would bounce up? i think i get you. thanks for helping. any comments on the anim now? (without the landing :p)

[edit]
added a better one, but i just need to perfect it now.
