An Amazon “wellness” guide told workers to train like “industrial athletes,” The guide gave tips such as buying shoes at the end of shifts to better fit swollen feet. An ex-employee leaked the guide to Vice. He said Amazon told him to keep working after an injury.

The guide, Vice said, tells workers to “prepare their bodies” for walking “up to 13 miles a day” and lifting “a total of 20,000 pounds” during a single shift (more than 30 pounds every minute for a 10-hour shift).

A worker packs a customer order at the 750,000-square-foot Amazon fulfillment center in Romeoville, Illinois.
