When I press down I am going down to a 60 degree angle kinda at the knees.

These jumps have a steep ramp. I think as I'm pressing down it is automatically pressing my toe side down, causing me to pop off the toe edge, sound right. Man I wish I had a video of me to analyize.

So do you think I'm trying to bend down to much to pop off the lip. I don't understand "closing the ankle/knee joints" can you describe this motion a little more, IE break it down as you do so well. I tried your method on the carpet just now, it seemed like my knees/ankles kinda just pointed into each other. Is this correct??. I figured being new I really need to pop hard, say like jumping for a volley ball spike, best analogy I can compare it to.
