Definitely looks interesting. Can you elaborate on the benefits?
Running backwards is great for a couple of reasons. First, it really targets your hamstrings, which are often neglected by people who weight train and/or run. Running forwards puts a greater strain on your quads and anterior leg muscles. As with all forms of exercise, changing up the angle or way you are working out is imperative for muscle growth and gains. When your body gets used to performing exercise a certain way, i.e. only flat bench press, or only running forward, or only swimming the breast stroke, the gains you make from that particular training deminish. By keeping this interesting and mixing things up, your induce muscle confusion which keeps the gains moving forward.
