I began practicing Yoga 8 years ago and discovered that it's absolutely the best for of exercise one can do to maintain strength, balance and flexibility. How do people stay fit on the road? Is there enough room in those cabs for some on who's 5'7 to fully stretch out while standing or lying down? Most Yoga poses don't require any more room than a typical residential bathroom.

What other devices do you use to stay fit and maintain health on the road?

There is enough room for that. People walk, ride bikes, use exercise bands, and more.

Ride bikes, are you suggesting they take bikes with them? If yes, where do they store the bikes when traveling? I can't imagine it would be inside the cab? I ride and would love to take my bike.

I've seen a few stored behind the cab, center of the sleeper. Some have been on a rack, while others were attached to the grab bar with ratchet straps. Some cover the bike, or just parts of it. Others just leave it out in the elements.

I saw one guy that had a bike rack rigged up on the front of his bumper guard and two biles on it.

One of the moderators here, Daniel B had created a thread where he snapped pics of his adventures of riding his bike while an OTR Driver. He also included a link on YouTube where he detailed how he properly secured his bicycle to his tractor. Hopefully somebody can send you a link to that thread, as I'm unable to as my phone (Microsoft Lumia) is trash and doesn't like the search feature.

OTR:

Over The Road

OTR driving normally means you'll be hauling freight to various customers throughout your company's hauling region. It often entails being gone from home for two to three weeks at a time.
