Resource Description

Backwards Running

Backward walking and running are unique forms of locomotion that have many injury resistance and performance benefits. One of the unique qualities is that there is minimal stretch shorten cycle contribution during movement and therefore maximises overload of the contractile component.  Click here to find out more about the research, benefits and programming for unresisted and resisted backward motion with a focus on running. Improving athletic potential and injury resistance are the foci of this resource.
