We did Waltz Jumps, Toe Loops, Flips and tried a few Lutz Jumps. That was the hardest to do in the harness for some reason. I never had a really good one.
I set up my camera for my practice and forgot it was down at the other end of the rink, so when I zoom in, it will be fuzzy.

You can just attack your jumps and you can also think about other things while you are jumping.
I don't mean day dreaming of course... my issue today was that my free leg was not crossed over my jumping leg .. in a jump position. I would pop out which of course slows that rotation and sabotages your landing.
