Truck Driver Fitness Routine

Staying active and healthy over-the-road is important, especially when you spend long hours driving each day. Adding a regular exercise routine and healthy diet to each day can significantly improve your energy levels, mood, and overall health. Cooking your meals in your truck using RoadPro 12V appliances is a convenient and healthy way to ensure you’re getting nutritious meals while on the go. With warmer weather here, it’s the perfect time to get outside and get your heart rate up with a few simple exercises that can be done almost anywhere, including next to your truck or in your sleeper cab. When you’re driving all day, it’s important to get up and move when you take a break. Get your blood flowing and heart rate up. Here’s a simple workout plan for you that can be done using resistance bands, a gallon water jug, or simply with no weights. We designed it to be beginner friendly and a quick 15-minute workout.

Warm-Up (5 minutes)

  • Start with a brisk walk or jog in place for 5 minutes to get your heart rate up. Be sure the area you are walking is safe to walk. Follow your walk with some light stretching. Focus on your legs, back, shoulders, and arms.

Workout (10 minutes)

  • Resistance Band Bicep Curls : Attach the resistance band to a fixed object in your sleeper cab or outside of your truck. Hold one end in each hand. Pull the bands towards you, squeezing your shoulder blades together. Do 3 sets of 10 reps.


  • Squats: With a gallon water jug or just your bodyweight, squat down as low as you can while keeping your back straight. Do 3 sets of 10 reps.
  • Bodyweight Lunges: Step forward with one leg and lower your body until both knees are bent at a 90 degree angle. Push back up to the starting position and repeat with the other leg. Do 3 sets of 10 per leg.
  • Resistance Band Rows: Stand on the resistance band with both feet and hold the ends of the band with your palms facing down. Bend at your hips and pull the bands up towards your shoulders. Do 3 sets of 10 reps.


  • Finish with more stretching, focusing on the muscles you worked on during the short workout. 

Remember to listen to your body and stop if you feel any pain. It's always a good idea to check with your healthcare provider before starting any new exercise routine, especially if you have any health concerns.
