  2. If you’re at a loss for a new activity to try, consider walking backwards. Though it might sound a bit strange, it can be incredibly beneficial.

  3. Walking backwards is a challenge and requires balance. Be sure if you are to complete any form of walking backwards to know the area in which you are walking to avoid any obstacles and to avoid tripping and falling.

  4. Walking backwards is not just for frolicking kids or teenagers goofing off any more. It actually has some health benefits for sports performance and rehabilitation after surgery or an injury. Walking or jogging backwards is popular in Japan because it burns several times more calories than doing it forwards. Although it may be folklore, it has been said that 100 steps backwards are equivalent to 1,000 steps forwards.

  5. Reverse Walk in ASPIRE! WOhoooooo …. Will try new thing then 🙂
    I want to get all my friends with me,..

  6. Walking backward has been found to increase cardiovascular endurance significantly more than walking forward under the same conditions.

  7. Why it’s work it to reverse it !!!

    When you walk or run forwards, your heel strikes the ground first, which is high impact. “Walking backwards forces you to land on the ball of your foot, distributing the shock of impact over a longer period,” says Bates. Instead of overstraining the quadriceps, it places more work on the hamstrings, helping to prevent common runners’ injuries. A recent study in the Journal of Biomechanics found that backwards running is especially beneficial for people with knee pain, because the knee-joint position stays relatively constant throughout the movement.

    Switching up your direction also strengthens your core and makes you look taller. When people walk or run forwards, they tend to bend forwards from the hips. Moving backwards forces your torso upright and places greater demands on abdominal muscles, says Nora Fritz, a research fellow at Ohio State University, whose latest study looked at the benefits of walking in reverse. Move backwards enough, and the improvements in your posture will pay off even when you’re standing still.

    Best of all, walking and running backwards burn about 30 percent more calories than moving forwards at the same speed. A study in the International Journal of Sports Medicine found that female college students who replaced their regular exercise with jogging backwards for 15 to 45 minutes, three times a week, lost almost 2.5 percent of their body fat in six weeks.

  8. Ever notice that when you exercise in the morning, you feel more alert and productive all day? It’s no coincidence — a morning workout has several advantages for your body and your mind. First, exercise jump-starts your metabolism, and keeps you burning calories at a higher rate all day.

  9. when you are getting ready to start your exercise try to pick out an outfit that will support the activity and make you feel excited to get fit!

  10. Walking lowers Alzheimer’s risk. A study from the University of Virginia Health System in Charlottes ville found that men between the ages of 71 and 93 who walked more than a quarter of a mile per day had half the incidence of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease, compared to those who walked less.
