Running in Reverse

| No Comments

In a study published last year, researchers had a group of runners stride forward and backward at a steady pace along a track equipped with force sensors and cameras. They found that running backwards enables people to avoid or recover from common injuries, burn extra calories and sharpen balance. Specifically, 30 percent more energy than running forward at the same speed.

This was an excelled qualitative research study. It was researching to find information to explain the qualities and benefits running backwards can provide. It uncovered new insights and allowed for greater understanding of why and how backwards running is a beneficial way to mix up a work out.
