    I seem to get very tired legs by the afternoon from all the standing and walking etc,

    My upper half never really gets tired at all, feel the burn occasionally, but could go on and on if it wasn't for the legs !

    What muscles tire first for you guys?

    The old upper thighs start to burn a bit by the afternoon! Get a bit of shoulder ache too but can pretty much go all day. Five mins with the kids though, and I can't breath! Lung capacity of a flea!

    For me its the willpower that goes first, when it gets to 2-3pm, you know when you just sigh and say **** it ill catch up tomorrow.

    Good question.

    Tbh. Nothing.

    I have built a Lazy system and use the lightest equipment.

    If I am being picky. My feet can ache by Friday. But I have just invested in some decent inserts and that seems to have fixed the ache straight away.

    if its your legs i suggest you buy several pairs of trainers secondhand on Ebay all diffrent makes or models and then wear em to work. i did this and stumbled onto incredibly comfey Adidas zx750 . iv not had tired feet or legs ever since !
    Everybodys diffrent ,zx750 might not work for you- so you may need to try a dozen or more pairs but you surely will find one that suits this job
