    Default Biddle Question

    http://youtu.be/S7NbpvcsORE[1]


    If anyone here has taken the biddle, I am looking for some advice. I'm a shorter guy around 5'5 and I have problems with the ladder carry as shown at around :50 in the video above. It's rather hard for me to keep the ladder balanced without tipping it forward or backwards. Any tips on how I can fix this will be greatly appreciated!
    (Any other advice for biddle training will also be greatly appreciated!)

    You have to learn how to balance the ladder on the shoulder. Find a ladder of about equal length and practice carrying it on the shoulder like the video shows.
    Stay Safe and Well Out There....

    If you are going counter clockwise around the cones which most people do, keep the ladder snug to your shoulder holding it tight with your right hand while extending your left hand as far out as your can reach holding the ladder on the top beam. Pm me if you have anymore questions. The key is to find that balance point. The ladder is clearly marked. If you can take the 008B practice course through Santa Ana. I have taken the biddle lots of times at Central Net.
