Have you heard of it? and have you TRIED it?!
From an AARP article:
"Retrograde Exercising. This activity is similar to backward drills, common in numerous sports, including tennis, basketball and football. Now people are trying it as part of their fitness programs. Basically, it involves motions like backward stair climbing (hold on to rails!), which is great for exercising and rehabbing the knee joints. Or walking backward, which helps elongate the trunk and front of the body. If you try retrograde exercising, watch your posture, form and safety to get the most from it."
Years ago I had read that the Chinese people do a lot of backwards walking and how VERY beneficial it is. You will work your quads, glutes, hamstrings in a totally different way!
Of course, safety is of utmost concern, so use common sense if you try any type of retrograde exercising!
