It is a balance of both. As you work to stay hydrated, double up and on the way back out to your truck try a few overhead presses using your water bottle to help build up more shoulder and upper body strength.</p> <p></p> <p>Our day to day modern lives don&rsquo;t request enough frequency in reaching up overhead.&nbsp;That means you have to make an effort to make it happen. The good news is, there's no need for weights. Whether it's a water bottle or a gallon jug,&nbsp;you can use whatever you have.</p> <h4>5 Steps to a Water Bottle Workout</h4> <ol> <li>Stand tall, or try&nbsp;your overhead presses while walking for&nbsp;an extra challenge.</li> <li>Exhale and try to press the water jug overhead.</li> <li>Be mindful not to round&nbsp;your body or let your elbow kick out while lifting up overhead.</li> <li>Can you keep your body tall and front ribs down while you reach up? You should feel your core!</li> <li>Reach for&nbsp;10 reps on each side.</li> </ol> <p>Every move matters, and remember it all adds up, so keep moving!</p> http://www.dingqian9.icu/blog/post/waterbottle-weights-truck-drivers http://www.dingqian9.icu/blog/post/waterbottle-weights-truck-drivers#comment http://www.dingqian9.icu/blog/post.aspx?id=1b78efba-26f5-430b-868f-3309267b5705 鍛ㄤ簩, 28 涓冩湀 2020 15:09:00 -0400 Corporate StayFIT Hope Zvara StayFIT TA Petro and TA Express http://www.dingqian9.icu/blog/pingback.axd http://www.dingqian9.icu/blog/post.aspx?id=1b78efba-26f5-430b-868f-3309267b5705 0 http://www.dingqian9.icu/blog/trackback.axd?id=1b78efba-26f5-430b-868f-3309267b5705 http://www.dingqian9.icu/blog/post/waterbottle-weights-truck-drivers#comment http://www.dingqian9.icu/blog/syndication.axd?post=1b78efba-26f5-430b-868f-3309267b5705 Get to Know 2020 Citizen Driver Herschel Evans <p><img src="http://www.dingqian9.icu/blog/image.axd?picture=/2020 Blog Posts/herschel-evans-blog.jpg" alt="ta-petro citizen driver herschel evans" /></p> <p>When discussing the trucking industry, you often hear talk about the trucks, but not enough about the people driving them. That&rsquo;s why we created Citizen Driver, to help recognize the people behind the wheel who work nonstop to keep our country strong and for their dedication to the industry and within their communities. This year, we&rsquo;re proud to add Herschel Evans to our list of 35 Citizen Drivers.</p> <p></p> <p>From a young age, Herschel aspired to be a heavy truck mechanic just like his father. Born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia, he started out in the business as a fuel/wash man and worked his way up to a mechanic for Ryder Truck Rental. He later shifted from the shop to the driver&rsquo;s seat, and after a few years with Ryder he moved to Holland, Inc., where he&rsquo;s been for the past 26 years and counting.</p> <p>Herschel is a standout leader in the industry and has driven more than 3 million accident free miles over his 32 year career as a professional truck driver. He&rsquo;s a strong safety advocate and an active member of Holland&rsquo;s Safety Committee. Herschel also serves as part of their Safety Review and Editing Board where he reviews safety materials, and even helped develop a safety video for Holland describing safe backing techniques and practices.</p> <p>In 2013, Herschel was selected as an American Trucking Associations (ATA) America&rsquo;s Road Team Captain. In this role, Herschel drove the ATA Road Team Image truck and Share the Road trucks around the country and spoke to schools, community groups, news media, legislators and industry and government officials about highway safety and the vitality of the trucking industry.</p> <p>In 2017, Herschel received the Mike Russell Trucking Image Award for representing the industry through his role as an America&rsquo;s Road Team Captain, his lifetime commitment to safe driving and for creating the Safety Drive for a Cure truck driving competition.</p> <p>Herschel also received the 2018 Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance International Driver Excellence Award (IDEA), which recognizes an elite group of drivers who display superior personal character and go above and beyond in their duties through safety and compliance. Only drivers with at least 25 cumulative years of crash-free driving and a clean driving record for the past three years are eligible for nomination.</p> <p>Herschel&rsquo;s accomplishments extend to state and national truck driving championships too. He was the 5-Axle National Driving Champion in 2008 and 2011. Locally, he placed first in the sleeper category in 2017 and 2018 and first in the 5-Axle category in 2006, 2008, 2011 and 2012 at the Georgia Truck Driving Championships.</p> <p>Herschel understands and takes pride in the fact that being a professional driver is about more than driving a truck. For Herschel, being a professional driver means that he never has to wonder if what he does for a living matters.</p> <p>&ldquo;Being in the industry that all other industries and families rely on for the items they need makes for a satisfying job,&rdquo; he said. &ldquo;Yes I drive the truck, but there is so much more to it. Knowing and following the regulations. Making sure my cargo is secure and loaded properly, all while taking care of my customers. It takes a professional to do that. I am proud to be one.&rdquo;&nbsp;</p> <p>Herschel is kind-hearted, compassionate and intent on making a difference in the lives of not only his customers, but also those in his community and in need. In 2011, Herschel started the Safety Drive for a Cure benefitting the Pediatric Brain Tumor foundation. This safety and skills competition is now in its seventh year and draws over 100 professional drivers from across the country to compete. As the driving force behind the event, Herschel helped raise over $30,000 in 2018 and over $50,000 in 2019.</p> <p>In 2016, the Convoy of Care was developed to help deliver critical supplies to familiar affected by major natural disasters. Through the convoy, Herschel helped coordinate sending over 30 truckloads with an estimated 600 tons of supplies to help flooding victims in Louisiana, tornado victims in Georgia and hurricane victims in Texas, North and South Carolina and Georgia. In 2019, he helped load and transport supplies for tornado ravaged areas in Alabama and Georgia, and for those affected by Hurricane Dorian in the Bahamas.</p> <p>In addition to his work for the Convoy of Care, Herschel has devoted over 33 years to the Atlanta Ride for Kids, a nationwide motorcycle charity ride that benefits the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation. And as part of his Citizen Driver prize package, he will receive a $2,500 donation to the charity of his choice, which he has decided to give to the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation.</p> <p>Herschel also gets to choose a TA, Petro or TA Express to have dedicated in his name. As an Atlanta Native, things came full circle when he selected Petro Atlanta as his dedication site.</p> <p>&ldquo;Actually, the zip code of that Petro is the same zip code I grew up in,&rdquo; Herschel said. &ldquo;When I first got into the trucking industry I was a tire technician. The spot where Petro Atlanta now sits was another truck stop back then. I went there many times to change tires on trucks.&rdquo;</p> <p>&ldquo;Now, when any of the ATA Road Team trucks are being stored at my terminal, that Petro is where I take them for fuel and service,&rdquo; Hershel added. &ldquo;That part of town is still where I make deliveries. Being from the area and still working a lot in and around the area, it will be pretty dang neat that this location in my hometown will bear my name.&rdquo;</p> <p>We are proud to recognize Herschel Evans as a Citizen Driver and we thank him for his lifelong commitment to trucking and to serving the communities around him.</p> <p>Does Herschel&rsquo;s story remind you of a professional driver you know?

Citizen Drivers are all of that and more. Being a Citizen Driver has less to do with the truck being driven and the mentality of the person behind the wheel. Citizen Drivers go above and beyond to represent the trucking industry and to help their communities, much like Jerry Seaman has done for over 48 years.</p> <p></p> <p>From Huron, South Dakota, Jerry started driving at just 12 years old, delivering goods from farm to market. He later went on to work for Stan&rsquo;s, a family owned and managed trucking business, where he spent nearly 38 years hauling liquid feed and grain. Jerry was looked to as a leader at Stan&rsquo;s and was often appointed to help make company decisions regarding equipment and operations. To date, he has racked up more than 5 million miles in his impressive career, all accident-free.</p> <p>In 2010, Jerry was chosen as the NASTC Driver of the Year and a member of their 2010 America&rsquo;s Safe Drivers Team. Aside from his brief tenure hauling a tanker of food grade liquids for Cliff Viessman, Jerry&rsquo;s entire trucking career has been working for small trucking companies.</p> <p>&ldquo;I get more reward out of helping small companies,&rdquo; Jerry said during the June 9 on-air announcement on the Dave Nemo Show. &ldquo;I&rsquo;m a small town South Dakota guy. I prefer to be that way.&rdquo;</p> <p>In 2011, Jerry began competing in truck driving championships, a true test of a driver&rsquo;s skills and safety record. In his first year of competing in the South Dakota Driving Championships, Jerry received first place in the 5-Axle Van Class, Rookie of the Year and the Larry Thury Award for the highest skills test score. With the highest overall score in the competition, Jerry was also named the Grand Champion.</p> <p>Jerry&rsquo;s South Dakota state win earned him the right to compete in the Super Bowl of safety, the American Trucking Associations&rsquo; National Truck Driving Championships. The win also granted him membership of the South Dakota Champions Club, a group that helps state champions prepare for the national championship and one that Jerry continues to be part of today. For the last several years, Jerry has set up a practice course for drivers, helping them polish their skills and gain confidence behind the wheel.</p> <p>After receiving second place in the sleeper division at the South Dakota Truck Driving Championships in 2018, Jerry was asked to compete again in the National Championships as a fill in. After competing in 2018, Jerry decided to shift his focus to helping other drivers train for the competitions. In true Citizen Driver fashion, he felt he could make a greater impact on highway safety by promoting the events and the excitement of competing to younger generations of drivers.</p> <p>While working for Stan&rsquo;s, Jerry was offered a position in the safety department and worked with drivers to understand and follow the industry&rsquo;s numerous safety rules and regulations. Today, Jerry continues to be recognized for his commitment to safety in the industry. He was the South Dakota Trucking Association&rsquo;s Driver of the Month in September 2010 and October 2018, and was nominated for the 2019 South Dakota Drive of the Year award.</p> <p>Citizen Drivers do more than drive a truck. While they spend most of their time on the road, leaders like Jerry still find the time to show up for their local communities.</p> <p>One of Jerry&rsquo;s most cherished awards is the Athlete&rsquo;s Choice Award, given to him at the South Dakota Convoy and Truck Show benefitting the Special Olympics. He and his wife Wilma have served on the Convoy Committee for the South Dakota Convoy for Special Olympics for many years and have poured their hearts and even personal resources into its success. Both Jerry and Wilma received the Founders Award for their volunteer work for the event.</p> <p>&ldquo;It&rsquo;s an amazing event with amazing kids,&rdquo; Jerry said. &ldquo;Even today, I can&rsquo;t go to Sioux Falls without one of the Special Olympics athletes seeing and hollering at me from across a store. Some would even come running and have to get a hug. It&rsquo;s so rewarding because you&rsquo;re making a difference and you really get to see it.&rdquo;</p> <p>In addition to his extensive work for the South Dakota Convoy for Special Olympics, Jerry has also been a Sunday school teacher to both teenagers and adults, as well as a Sunday school director. He was also the music director and worship leader.</p> <p>Jerry Seaman has spent his entire career devoted to the trucking industry and giving back to his community, so it will come as no surprise that he has chosen to give back to other truck drivers with his Citizen Driver donation prize. Jerry&rsquo;s $2,500 donation will go to the St. Christopher Truckers Relief Fund to help support professional drivers in need of financial assistance due to injury or illness.</p> <p>In addition to a donation to their charity of choice, Citizen Drivers get to choose a TA, Petro or TA Express to have named in their honor. Jerry&rsquo;s hits close to home, as he&rsquo;s chosen the TA Express in Vermillion, South Dakota for his site dedication. Formerly a Coffee Cup Fuel Stop, this was a truck stop he frequented long before it became a TA Express.</p> <p>&ldquo;Coffee Cup Fuel Stops have been in South Dakota for years and years,&rdquo; Jerry said. &ldquo;For over 30 years I stopped there on my dedicated coal haul. I suppose I&rsquo;ve bought close to hundreds of thousands of gallons of fuel from them, never had a bad gallon of fuel once.&rdquo;</p> <p>If you&rsquo;re passing through South Dakota, stop by the soon to be Jerry Seaman Vermillion Travel Center! And if you know a professional driver who is a leader in the industry and their community, nominate them for the 2021 Citizen Driver award.
