WHAT IS BACKWARD RUNNING?
Recent studies show that running backward improves fitness. Instead, to complete each stride, they use more leg muscles than in forward motion and burn about 30 percent more energy to go at the same pace as when running forward. Because it is relatively strenuous, backward running can be effective in building fitness.
CAN YOU RUN FASTER BACKWARDS
Run backwards for efficient fitness. Running in reverse motion is said to make you fitter (and faster) than running forward. Another backward–running expert, James Bamber, says reverse running benefits include strengthening your foot muscles and improving your posture.
IS WALKING BACKWARDS GOOD FOR YOU?
Studies of both healthy adults and children show backward walking can improve balance. It also works your muscles and joints in different ways from forward walking.
DOES WALKING BACKWARDS IMPROVE MEMORY?
Walking backwards can boost your short-term memory, study suggests (but scientists have no idea why!) People who walk backwards perform better in a memory test than those who stand still or walk forward, a study has found.
RECENT SUCH TRAINING AND COMPETITION IS GETTING HUGE PARTICIPANTS.
Start practice during your training hours – a short 15-20 minutes daily will increase your metabolism – either a backward walking or running. I have been doing this on every other days and it have truly improved my metabolism and also my leg injuries and body postures.
