1346. How does one "pull up their legs"? Wouldn't you have to jump in some way or another?
It is possible to simply pull up your legs. When you do that, you reduce the downward force your feet exert on the ground and the ground responds by pushing upward on your feet less strongly. With less upward force to support you, you begin to fall.
