I think I want to get a job doing some kind of manual labor this summer to force myself into better shape and I was wondering what kind of jobs would be good, and if you had experience in them.

Shoveling snow got me in incredible shape really fast. Since this is a summer job, there's no snow. I'd opt for the next best thing (maybe even better), dirt. Go for some landscaping job. It'll get you in really good shape.

Well unless your in some parts of canada or russia :lol: :D











Landscapeing would be good. Helping with a construction team could be good too, like a team that builds houses. You don't have to realy "build" anything, just carry the supplys around (which would probaly be preaty heavy) :D

Unless your country is currently at war that is... :roll:

The problem is it's hard to get a job in construction unless you know someone. I'll probably end up having to do landscape, but I hope I can get a job plastering pools since I can do that and it would probably be better money then most jobs.







trix I'm in college but thanks for the input.

Warehouse, dock hand, etc.







All you really need is transport to and from and you should be fine.

work on a farm, preferably throwing around 1000's of 60 pound hay bales in 95 degree heat, that will buff you up in a hurry.

I can suggest several things, though I've no real experience in the area; someone correct me if I'm wrong. If you want to "get into shape", I would recomend just getting a long paper round. If, however, you want to make yourself stronger, as opposed to just fitter, I'd suggest either trying to find work stacking things in a warehouse, or, as others have suggested, farm work. It doesn't need to be lifting; however, there is little call, these days, for any other sort of work on a farm: machines>people for that sort of thing.







Really, though, I'd suggest a paper round; just make sure it's a long one, and every week day... I imagine that most people would want a compromise between short length and high pay: a medium length one. Surely employers would jump at the chance of getting someone to do a long round.







I don't know... as I say, I may well be wrong.

If you're old enough and live in America to work for the UPS, you'll be buff in a few weeks (if you can handle it).

The roofers in my area pick up 80 lb bundles of shingles. Carrying 40 lbs up a 40~ foot ladder and plopping it onto a roof all day isn't exactly easy either. I've done it before, don't get me wrong it's not hard but it does get tiring after awhile.







Your best bet would be Masonry.
