From Fitness magazine, October 2009
"A recent European study suggests that walking backward--instead of the usual direction--can help you problem solve faster and more effectively. Bonus: It can also tone the body parts everyone sees except you. Ready to reverse course? David Pardue, a certified trainer and manager of One2One BodyScapes in Boston, suggests these easy ways to get started:
--Set the treadmill on a 3.0 incline and walk backward for 20 minutes.
--Instead of stepping forward into your lunges, step behind and do five on each side.
--Do the backstroke in the pool for 25 minutes."
