Walking backwards vs walking forwardhumans walk slower when walking backwards because it is an uneasy thing to do since they were not necessarily taught to walk backwards so they try to reverse the thinking process in their brain that regulates the walking motion and it takes a longer time for the synapses to interlock with the dendrites causing slower walking however by trying this out you are enriching your environment in a way making yourself a little smarter and with conditioning and training you can actually walk faster backwards if you practice.
