(Video): In Cab Exercises for Truck Drivers – Micro Burst Workouts

With winter weather upon us, it’s really easy to slack on your workout routine and use it as an excuse not to exercise. Obviously you wouldn’t want to go for a walk or run in the rain, cold or snow if you had a choice. Guess what? You do have a choice. There are plenty of exercises you can do in the warmth of your truck cab, there may even be some I cover in the video that you haven’t thought of!

Another battle we fight as truckers is time, making time to fit exercise into your daily or weekly schedule can be difficult. When I’m limited on time I do what I call “micro burst” workouts. I do a fast paced 15 minute workout to get my heart rate up, which usually consists of squats, a one minute plank, lunges, side kicks, high knees and jump rope depending on how much time I have. This type of routine can be done on your 30 minute break or while getting your load at a shipper’s. It by no means replaces a regular workout, but if it’s all you can squeeze in sometimes, it’s better than doing nothing at all.

About CJ Moore

Three years ago my husband and I packed our belongings into a storage unit in Las Vegas, NV and traded our normal, predictable life for a life of unpredictability and long hours as over the road truck drivers. We have been working and living in our big truck 24/7, on the open road, ever since. After working in this industry for some time now, I realized health and fitness awareness were being placed on the back burner. I experienced this first hand in my own life within a few months of living on the road when my poor eating choices, lack of exercise, loss of sleep and sheer exhaustion began to affect my health. It was then that I decided to make some positive changes and now I’m excited to share my experiences, tips and passion for health and fitness with other truckers on a quest to live healthy lives out on the road.
