Back It Up


Pedalling backwards on an cross trainer can help you increase aerobic capacity 9% better than pedalling forwards, according to a new study from the American College of Sports Medicine. Backpedalling can also strengthen your legs better than forward pedalling. The findings have particular importance for lifters with knee injuries, as cross trainers offer a joint-friendly, low-impact movement.
