I understand. However, I don't want to make a subrequest with the body
of the main request. I want to be able to make a subrequest with a
totally new request body.

For example:

The client sends to my server:

POST /server_url
(main) request body: body_from_client_to_server

My server would make a subrequest to a backend:

POST /backend_url
subrequest body: body_from_server_to_backend

Or even this scenario:

Client to my server:
GET /server_url

My server to a backend:

POST /backend_url
subrequest body: blabla
