Sex (male)   23 (100)
Height (cm) 181 (6)  
Weight (kg) 97 (23)

  1. 23 WTs completed the baseline physical capacity and health check and 21 completed the questionnaire at T1. ‘High’ leisure time physical activity level refers to doing light physical activity for more than 4 h per week (on average) or moderate to vigorous physical activity for 2–4 h per week [46]. Perceived exertion during work was assessed on the 6–20 Borg-scale ranging from “No exertion at all” to “Maximal exertion,” with 13 corresponding to “Somewhat hard” [47]
