Playing bass - pain?

My character hasn't picked up any kind of instrument for 2.5 years, but has recently replaced the bass player in a band. He's got three day's worth of practice and is just finished with his first concert, so where will he hurt?

He's reasonably fit and young, but I guess he'll be using a lot of muscles he hasn't used for a long time... but having never played bass myself, I have no idea how it will feel and where it might hurt.

I have no idea how to google for this, if there is anything I've overlooked, I apologize.

ETA: Thank you SO much to anyone who's answered so far. Additional question: how long will it take to get the calluses needed to play the bass on a tour?
