Table 1 Differences in sitting, standing, stepping, daily steps, and bouts of sitting, standing, stepping from different durations (n = 10)

From: Randomized controlled pilot of an intervention to reduce and break-up overweight/obese adults’ overall sitting-time

  1. SD standard deviation
  2. aThe participants had no stepping bouts longer than 10 uninterrupted minutes on both control and intervention weeks. Therefore, the means and differences were not presented for these bouts lengths, as it would be all zero.
  3. All variables were obtained with ActivPAL except for Actigraph breaks, which were obtained with Actigraph GT3X+
