Your body will get used to it. As long as you eat and sleep enough to recover, you'll be good. Take care of your joints though, always take the time to stretch, wear knee pads/braces, fish oil is always a good idea.

You need to eat the right foods and enough to recover. Also sleep enough

There really isn’t an answer to this question. Depends on what job, what work out, the person himself, any supplements, how much rest you get... no definitive answer.

I work a physical job third shift and I do OT a decent amount. You can do it. Just might need to scale back a little more frequently than someone who doesn’t. The workouts are way more intense than work, it’s the length of the work that is hard.

Work capacity increases over time. That's why when you get some 18 year old start out in a heavy labor job they go straight home to bed every night, shattered the first few weeks until they start to get used to it. Meanwhile, old guys just shrug it off.

You have to increase workload gradually though.

is very rear to see someone doing hodcarrier job and to gain any muscle , is allmost imposibil ... maybe on steroids , sarms, prohormones ... but natural ... no way ...

I have used sarms and other stuff but not a lot. I've went years without using anything other then protein and creatine. Eventually your body adapts and you can lift right after work and feel fine. Also my recovery and endurance is much greater from doing manual labor.

As others have said, shouldn't be a problem. Your body will get used to it. I'd make sleep a priority, 7-8 hours if you can and workout on weekends (whatever your off days are) so you only have minimum workouts on work days.

When I went back into blue collar work a little over a year ago at first I trained just Saturday and Sunday. After I was used to that then added a third day. Now I have a forth day...don’t think I’m getting past that.

It gets easier.

good evening .... i whant to share my last experience ... i have been worked hoist driver and lift operator a few mounths , i had a small progress in all this time , friday i have been labourer mouving heavy beens with plasterboords , rubish , unloading the beens , etc , when i did my workout after the shift about 20-30% of my strenght dissapeard , i was aible to do a fitness workout instead a bodybuilding one ... i concluded that for a natural person a intense job is stop any progres ... i think a progress is more like to happen in a holiday or a long weekend.
