When you decide that earning your CDL and becoming a truck driver is the career path for you, it doesn’t mean you have to give up your lifestyle altogether. There are plenty of workouts you can do on the road to keep yourself in shape and feel as healthy and proud as ever. Read on and learn how to maintain your soldier physique on the road with these exercises.
Jogging or Bicycling
If you don’t want to lose your soldier physique when you transition into truck driving, make sure you exercise as much as possible. Jogging and bicycling are great exercise options because you can do them just about anywhere. If you choose bicycling, be sure to find a small or collapsible bike so it doesn’t take up too much room in your truck.
Whenever you stop at a red light or have a few minutes to spare, try doing some abdominal squeezes. All you have to do is tense up your abs for a period of time, so try holding your muscles for the duration of your favorite song. This exercise is convenient because you can do it right from the driver’s seat.
Like jogging and bicycling, weight training can be done anywhere you want. Make sure the weights you bring along with you don’t take up too much cargo space or weigh down the vehicle too severely. You can always add extra reps to increase resistance and intensify your workout.
