How Cycling Backwards Improves Your Performance

A recent Ace study illustrates the benefits of pedaling backwards. The cycling study showed that pedaling backward on the Cascade CMXRT recumbent bike elicited higher heart-rate and energy-cost values than pedaling at identical workloads in the forward direction. Pedaling backwards improves quadricep strength enabling riders to work at a higher workload at a lower RPE and heart rate.
