Default Another Animation practice

Hi guys,
Been away from 3d design for a while due to work and crap. but I am back in the saddle again.
I rigged this character a good while back but I never animated him.
It seems as though I always been animating using the "straight ahead" method for a while. So I decided to give "pose to pose" a try and see if is a better workflow. I've always heard its a good method for timing.

Here is the animation using the pose to pose blocking technique. (see other links for the second and third pass)

Let me know what you think
What animation workflow works best for you guys?

Nice one! I can't view it slowly, but I'm wondering if it could benefit from a bit more stretch right before lift off, (i.e. fully extend the arms and legs), but you might already have that.
Keep up the good work!

tried both ways, but for me pose 2 pose is alot better imo. more flexible in adjusting things.
