If you don’t already have a workout routine, an easy way to start is with stretching.
You might have experienced your body feeling stiff or even cramping up after long hours of driving and sitting in the same position. Professional truck drivers have to work hard to avoid developing sedentary habits and pursue a healthy lifestyle.
Though the nature of the truck driving job can make it difficult to work out frequently, regular exercise will prevent health issues caused by inactivity, and it is good for the overall well-being of your body and mind.
Benefits of stretching include improved flexibility and range of motion, energy level, blood circulation, posture, reduced stress, and more. In addition, having strong core muscles can improve your balance and stability and reduce your risk of injury since weak core muscles may lead to poor posture, lower back pain and muscle injuries.
Here are quick and easy ways you can stretch your entire body and exercise your core without any equipment and without leaving your cab.
