How about some “retro-running” on a rare day off?



Jogging backward burns more calories

Atlanta, Georgia (AHN) – According to some experts, retro-running or backward jogging burns more calories than the casual forward jogging.

Barry T. Bates, a professor emeritus of biomechanics at the University of Oregon says that the measure has benefited people to recover from knee-joint surgery and injuries ranging from the ankle to the groin.

However, Bates warns of the potholes, signs, cars and other hazards which remain neglected due to lack of hindsight.
