Due to the many continuous hours in the same sedentary position, individuals working in the trucking industry are more likely to develop musculoskeletal problems, as well as other health issues. One’s posture is the root cause of this; truck drivers often assume a head forward and shoulders hunched position, and the body eventually adapts to it. This in turn leads to muscle imbalances as some muscles are used more frequently than others. While these imbalances may start small, maybe a sore neck or a stiff back, they can quickly become debilitating. It is therefore important to exercise those muscles in order to prevent these imbalances. This training lesson shows you how!

All of the exercises shown here are intended to be performed while you are resting on the road; they are simple and easy to perform. Exercises demonstrated in this video include those for your neck, upper and lower back, shoulders, and other muscle groups. If one area is tighter than others, you should exercise it more frequently, but ultimately you should perform all of these exercises daily.

Working in the trucking industry poses certain hazards, but some are less well-known than others. Through the information presented here, you will be given the skills necessary to combat muscle imbalances through simple and effective exercises.
