Resistance Training Improves Memory in MCI
High-intensity progressive resistance training (PRT) improves cognition in older adults with mild cognitive impairment (MCI), and these improvements are mediated through gains in strength, not aerobic capacity, a randomized trial indicates. Older adults commonly have symptoms such as musculoskeletal pain, claudication, or shortness of breath that may limit their exercise capacity.
