Training in Reverse – To Increase Performance

We live in a forward moving sports world, propelling footballs, fists, our body’s, and everything else ahead. Naturally that’s how most athletes train – by developing forward strength. But as odd as it may seem, training in reverse can also dramatically enhance forward muscle function. Fighters have long known that single arm pulley rows – which are basically weighted punches in reverse – make for harder hitting. Training in reverse translates to higher performance in all sports – whether it’s running in reverse to improve sprint times, doing pushups to improve rowing stroke, or rear delt flys to improve tennis stroke. Whatever your sport – there’s a way to train in reverse and improve your game.
