## Highlights

• Physiological responses were measured in 7 women subjects who lifted boxes weighing 6.8, 15.9 or 22.7 kg from the floor to a height of 60 cm
• It is suggested that fatigue is unlikely to occur while lifting boxes up to 15.9 kg weight at 35–40%$$\dot V$$O2 max, i.e., at rates of lifting varying from 5 to 7 times per min
