People do look at me funny but when I walk backwards, it actually puts less strain and requires less range of motion on my knee joints, making it ideal for people likewho have knee problems or injuries. Also, I take my little baby in her stroller without worries :)
Did you know? When I walk backwards it gives me a chance to work out all of those muscles in your legs, such as your quadriceps and calves, which take a backseat to your hamstrings during regular walking. It also works out my hamstrings in a different way increases its flexibility.
Because backward walking eliminates the typical heel-strike to the ground (the toe contacts the ground first), it can lead to changes in pelvis alignment that help open up the facet joints in your spine, potentially alleviating pressure that may cause low back pain in some people. That is awesome!
