That’s according to this article which suggests running backwards can not only burn more calories but can also help to protect your joints. Apparently it is kinder to your joints because it entails less of the pounding motion associated with forwards running. It is also supposed to burn a fifth more calories. Fans of reverse running say that it improves your balance and your peripheral vision. Personally I have enough trouble running forwards without the added complication of bumping into things.
