When Moving Backwards Gets You Forward!

It’s all about moving forward. Moving forwards in your career, further towards your ambitions, closer to your fitness goals and always pushing that little bit harder in the right direction. But sometimes you need to take a step back in order to move forward. Or a few in this case… Backwards running! A great way to move in order to get super fit!

Ok, so you may look a little crazy, but backwards running is a definite way to tone up. Not only does it target your glutes (hello perky butt!), it also works your hamstrings, core and lower back. It’s great for improving balance and will work muscles that you’re not used to using, which is always a bonus.

Try working this into your usual running routine. Say 60 seconds backwards and 3 minutes forwards, then repeat several times to warm up. Push yourself harder and for longer if you want to use this as part of your full work out. It’ll take some getting used to at first but you’ll soon get into your stride and when you start seeing results, the only people who will be looking crazy are the ones who haven’t tried it! xx
