Only about 40 percent of older adults engage in regular physical activity and even fewer do strength training, according to the Healthy Aging Research Network. By incorporating resistance cord training into your morning routine, you’ll wake up your muscles and strengthen them. A resistance cord is an elastic cord with handles on each end. When stretched, the cord provides resistance, challenging your muscles to stretch the cord, as well as to stabilize against the elasticity. Many seniors enjoy using a resistance cord because it’s an inexpensive, transportable, easy-to-use tool for improving strength, flexibility and balance.
