    Brisk walking is all you need. Running is actually bad for your joints even if you’re not old and half crippled like I am now. Lol especially if you can find a good incline to walk up and down. Do your post trip inspection put your walking shoes on and get out and walk for 5 miles a day and eat even just semi healthy and I guarantee you that OTR job just became a heck of a lot easier and you’ll sleep a lot better. I have not been doing this routine myself lately for the past six months or so but I’m gonna get back to it. It made Huge difference in my health overall.
    I also dragged along a half size punching bag. Not the full heavy huge one but when I can just stuff at the end of my bunk. And it comes with a collapsible stand. I used to box back in high school and so I set that thing up sometimes and hit the bag for a good 45 minutes or so. There’s all sorts of things you can do while living on a truck if you really want to.

    In addition to the bike I was thinking dumbbells, kettlebell, bands, and exercise mat. I hadn't thought of a punching bag but that's not a bad idea either.

    Endless youtube out there for workout ideas.

    It's hard to have everything. I've cut down my gear to basically the bicycle, two 25lb plates, and a pack. I just hold the plates when doing squats or lunges, or put them in my pack for push ups. Also use the plates in the pack for weighted hikes.

    Lots of easy really good ways to excercize with no equipment too.
     
    ducnut and dave01282000 Thank this.

    The Montague bikes look like they get pretty good reviews and have full size wheels. Quite a range in prices but it looks like they have a few that are under a grand.
