Objectively measured physical activity in Finnish employees: a cross-sectional study.

Mutikainen S, Helander E, Pietilä J, Korhonen I, Kujala UM - BMJ Open (2014)

Bottom Line: Both MVPA and VPA were higher among men and during days off, and decreased with increasing age and BMI (p<0.001 for all).Similar results were observed when the probability of having a bout of MVPA or VPA lasting continuously for ≥10 min per measurement day was studied.Objectively measured physical activity is higher among men and during days off, and decreases with increasing age and BMI.

Hourly distributions of moderate-to-vigorous (MVPA; ≥3 metabolic equivalents (METs)) and vigorous (VPA; ≥6 METs) physical activity by gender and weight status during workdays and days off. The mean number of minutes at a certain hour (eg, 9:00) denotes the number of minutes during the hour beginning from that time point (eg, 9:00–10:00. Normal weight=18.5 to <25 kg/m2; overweight=25 to <30 kg/m2; obese=30–40 kg/m2. The 1 min notation indicates values for single 1 min bouts throughout the measurement period.

BMJOPEN2014005927F4: Hourly distributions of moderate-to-vigorous (MVPA; ≥3 metabolic equivalents (METs)) and vigorous (VPA; ≥6 METs) physical activity by gender and weight status during workdays and days off. The mean number of minutes at a certain hour (eg, 9:00) denotes the number of minutes during the hour beginning from that time point (eg, 9:00–10:00. Normal weight=18.5 to <25 kg/m2; overweight=25 to <30 kg/m2; obese=30–40 kg/m2. The 1 min notation indicates values for single 1 min bouts throughout the measurement period.

Mentions: Hourly distributions of MVPA and VPA by gender, weight status and type of day are shown in figure 4. The largest amounts of MVPA during workdays occurred at 7:00–8:00 and 17:00–19:00. During days off, the largest amounts of MVPA were distributed evenly between 10:00 and 18:00. The respective VPA profiles resemble those of MVPA. During workdays, a small peak occurred at 7:00–8:00, but the greatest amount of VPA was clearly seen during 17:00–20:00. The greatest amount of VPA during days off occurred between 10:00 and 20:00. For both genders, the amount of MVPA and VPA during workdays and days off decreased with increasing BMI.
