Let's imagine this in an situation where a person jumps down from a smaller building, a garage for example. The exact numbers aren't really important here, since I'm not aiming for an exact answer, but we can call it 2 metres in height.
To have both situations as similar to each other as possible, let's define them like this:
In first "try", the person runs on the building, the jumps down. He is not jumping up to increase his jumping distance, he simply 'drops down', but considering that he's running with a certain speed forward, he will be falling in about 45 degrees angle. He drops at the distance X from the building.
In second "try", the person runs on the building, but does a forward somersault during the flight. As before, he doesn't necessarily jumps up, as the building height is already enough for him to complete the sault and as with the previous situation, he drops at the same distanes X from the building.
In which scenario does this person hits the ground at the lower fall speed?
