Materials and Methods: The method used was known Bruce protocol which able to evaluate the variables indirectly, the cases included 20 healthy young males that were selected randomly They had to do forward and backward running in weekly intervals assess variable (cardio pulmonary responses ) Forward and backward running and results comparisoned. Results: All the variable rates were increased associated with both running methods that were higher in forward running in comparisons with backward running method (P=0.0001). Conclusion: As backward running method transmitted force pattelo-femoral joint (knee) is lower then forward running could be applicable in-patient with knee surgery or anterior knee pain for maintaining of cardio-pulmonary health.
