Benefits of Walking Backwards

Find your fitness routine boring? Add “backward walking” into your routine to enjoy the physical and mental benefits it brings!

Let’s check the below benefits of walking backwards:

Improves Balance - Walking backwards can force your mind to focus and sharpen your awareness of both your body and the environment.

Stimulates lesser-used muscles and joints - Walking in reverse gives a workout to those muscles and joints you don’t normally use and helps strengthen them.

Improves Memory - Research shows that backward walking has positive effects on memory recall, such as remembering events, words from a list and pictures that had been viewed previously.

Boosts Metabolism - Walking backwards can raise your heart rate and burn more calories per minute compared to traditional walking.

Practice indoors in an area with no steps and obstacles first. To be safe, walk backwards outdoors with a companion so that you can take turn to alert each other to any hazards.
