Running animation update

So I added the legs to this animation but they don’t look right. Any Suggestions on how to improve the animation?
BTW: The animation is 7 frames

Your legs never go beyond the torso line. See an example cycle. Like the arms, the legs alternate between: front, middle and back. Your legs are just switching between middle and back. Professional animators always look for movement references, this way the movement becomes more natural.

It looks a lot like a forward and reverse motion on yours. The arms look okay, but for legs it’s quite different.
You really want those big motions rather than the same amount of movement each frame. Note especially the difference in my 3rd and 4th frame.
7 frames works well, there’s 6 in this one I did.
