  8. Clean up the graph editor, removing any unnecessary keys.
  9. After clean up and then slight tweaking.
  10. Outcome: https://youtu.be/1gG-kGz3tJo

NOTE: Towards the end of the jump it looks a little bit like the rig slides to a stop, but looking in the side view it is actually off the ground, just the perspective makes it a little hard to see, this is why I added the boxes to show him landing.
