“I’m pretty well molded to this seat – when I move it’s going to sound like a round of firecrackers with all the pop-pop-pops coming from my joints.”
As a truck driver, you do a lot more than sit and drive. You have an active job that requires strength and agility. When the time comes to move from a stationary driving position to go-go-go movements, it can be daunting. Whether it be:
- Getting down out of your truck safely
- Cranking a trailer dolly
- Assisting with an unload
- Getting some steps in for your fitness program
- Or getting up in your truck to keep the miles rolling
It’s tough to jolt your body from a long-term sitting position directly into a taxing activity. Take a moment, and ease your body into movement. Throw a few stretches in when you get to a destination!
Your body will thank you – not only for the movement out of the driver’s seat but for giving it a few minutes to prepare and ease into action.
