• To stay in balance while carrying a heavy weight a character typically leans to keep the Center of Pressure (CoP) in the Base of Support (BoS).
• When one character holds another the two have a combined total Center of Gravity and BoS.
• Raising the arms allows for quick repositioning of the CoP in order to maintain balance.
• Spreading the feet apart increases the BoS, making it easier to achieve and keep balance.
