Fitness Tip From Rosa – #20 // Running Backwards

Run backwards to get fitter

Want to bust your running? Try running backwards! A recent study found women who did backward running three times a week for six weeks became aerobically fitter than those who stuck to running forwards. The South African researchers also found backward running helps posture and co- ordination.

The say running one lap of the athletics track backwards offers the fitness benefits of running six laps forwards. Just don’t trip up!
