It's kind of hard to describe how to remove pedals. A couple of the folks here have done a pretty good job. The key for me is aligning the wrench essentially right beside the crankarm and pushing down, or along the inside of the crankarm and having the wrench move towards the bottom bracket. It's an angle thing. You really don't have to do anything to hold the crankset that way.
360 in lbs. really isn't all that much, 22-23 foot lbs. Really that's just snug and a small grunt. Most folks put too much torque on their pedals, or attempt to cross thread them. That's why they can be so tough to remove.
