Rudiment of the Week: Flam Paradiddle

I have always found the Flam Paradiddle to be one of the trickiest rudiments to execute cleanly.  A couple days ago I was spending some time with Charli Persip, and he called me over to show me his recent warm up.  He started to play Flam Paradiddles, but after four bars of the way it looks above, he shifted the flam over one 8th note.  I asked him why he liked to warm up with this rudiment and he said "because it's hard."
