    Jump rope (empty trailer )room on back of it need about 10 feet of space. Run in place. Burpees, do as many all day anytime anywhere.
    If you are the exhibitionist type jog or run around truck stop. Not me , may get hit.
    Dips. Bunk edge.
    Push ups always, anywhere.
    Shower room , jumping jacks, core work.
    Do these all week if you are OTR. The industry bets on you taking the bait of fast food available anywhere, and clocking out early cardiac style. Don't do it. Subway is ok just beware of extra meat and cheese unless you can burn it.
    Garlic pills. CLA. Those supplements that can help.

    I used used to carry a curling bar in the truck with six 10 lb plates. Stash it easy. Can do all kinds of different routines with it, not just curl. The curling bar is short and easy to work with. I used to work out in the cab. And walking at the truckstop tops off the workout.

    Flatbed yep! Remember tying down chaining could was a workout in itself. If you dryvan don't forget to put your weights away. Once I hit the brakes in city trekkin and the discs flew against the back of my seat and made a scary sound.
    And also, never leave them outside the truck or tie them down behind the tractor or with your load. Insurance , movement, too much to worry about.

    I thought to myself ' I didn't see a four wheeler in front of me' , I thought oh man this is it, Im fired. Like in 2004. Then some bar rings rolled past it afterwards.

    I open my passenger door, face towards the windshield, grab hold of the handle near the dash and the handle near/on the door and do step ups. Best leg exercise I have ever done. 3 sets of 10 each leg is enough for me, but if someone needs resistance they can slip a dumbbell in a backpack and put it on.

    I got this Mainstays canister at Walmart and put a 30 foot drag chain in it and use it for presses or sometimes just walk around the rig with it doing intermittent lunges.

    I also bought a trailer airline spring and attach it to a handle like this and a black load securement strap with the S hooks on each end and find a place to hang it and do tricep pull downs. Safety glasses recommended.
