From D&D Wiki
Corded Steel Muscles [General]
Your muscles are so strong that they actually help absorb blows
Prerequisite: Str 15, Toughness
Benefit: Perhaps after years of hard work or training, or maybe it was magical or divine intervention, or it was just good breeding stock, regardless, your muscles are large and hard as steel. so much so that they absorb the blows you take in combat as well as any armor you might put over them. Add your strength modifier to your natural armor score.
Normal: Your strength isn't added to natural armor
