Although the space has its limitations there are strength training exercises that you can do. You can use resistance bands for all types of strength training movements. There is a strap that you can purchase to attach to doors too. Using kettle balls Medicine balls. If you have an arms length of unobstructed space while standing (maybe in the center)? You can use the medicine ball for 15-20 minute intervals to get your heart rate up.
As far as cardio. As long as safety isn't an issue try to walk/jog at varying speeds for at least 30 minutes per day; it would be great exercise for both of you.
My husband is a truck driver, so we are on the road 5-6 days a week just about every week. We have currently been home for about 2 months for Christmas and to work on our truck and in these last 2 months I have gotten really serious about getting in shape and living a healthier lifestyle. Ive been working out every morning doing pilates,elliptical,and treadmill and I have been paying much closer attention to what I eat trying to stay between 1200-1300 calories a day. The problem is that we are going back on the road next monday and will pretty much be on the road for the rest of the year. I know that I can continue eating healthy but does anyone have any good ideas of how to stay active and get exercise in every day when you are pretty much eating,sleeping, basically living out of a semi truck?? Are there any exercises that I could possibly do from the bed in our truck which is basically the only area I would have room to do anything? I really want to continue to lose weight but I just dont know how Im going to be able to continue to exercise when Im living out of a truck!! I considered taking a jump rope with me and jumping rope when we get up in the mornings at truck stops, but Ive encountered more than enough creepy perverted truckers since my husband starting trucking to know that thats probably not a good idea.Thats not to say that all truckers are like this, i have just had the unfortunate opportunity of running into several that are. Any comments or suggestions would be so appreciated! thanks! :)
