Dose-Response Relationship

After reviewing Chapter 1 in the text, the ACSM article on The Quantity and Quality of Exercise (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site., and the Physical Activity Guidelines (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site. website, consider the following: The frequency, intensity, type, and duration of exercise have a strong correlation to the benefits one can receive from exercise. Therefore, an association exists amid the dose-response relationship between exercise and health. This relationship also exists for special populations; hence, special populations similarly can benefit from a regular exercise program. For this discussion,
Explain the dose-response relationship.
Explain the physiological and psychological benefits of exercise.
Explain the Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans.
Your initial contribution should be 250 to 300 words in length. Your research and claims must be supported by you course text and a minimum of one additional scholarly source. Use proper APA formatting for in-text citations and references as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center.
Guided Response: Respond to two classmates by Day 7. Your post should be at least 100 words in length. In each of your responses to your classmates, assess one risk associated with exercise. Support this response with one scholarly source formatted in APA style.

Risk Stratification Case Study

Prior to completing this assignment, review Chapter 2 in the text. Any person wanting to participate in an exercise program should begin with a self-guided health history questionnaire to determine if any risks of exercise exist. Figures 2.1, 2.2, and 2.3 in the text are examples of self-guided questionnaires. Individuals can be placed into one of three risk stratification categories: Lowest Risk, Moderate Risk, or Highest Risk. For this assignment, do the following:
Compare and contrast the function of the human body in someone who has heart disease to someone who does not have heart disease.
Explain four of the signs and symptoms associated with cardiovascular, pulmonary, or metabolic disease.
Read each case study below and assess the risks of each.
Place each client in one of the risk categories.
Fill in the Risk Stratification Worksheet.
Explain your reasoning for selecting the specific category. For each case study, expound on whether you feel the person should see a physician prior to initiating an exercise program and why or why not.
Submit your assignment and the Risk Stratification Worksheet to your instructor by Day 7.

Gladwell Grocery Stores Case Scenario

Gladwell Grocery Stores has ten (10) stores in upstate New York. They have approximately 400 – 440 employees. Most of the employees are part time, with approximately 45% of them full time. The operations manager, Tom Bell, also acts as the HR manager and travels to each location each week to take care of recruiting, scheduling, hiring, and answering questions for the employees as needed. He also takes care of payroll using Excel spreadsheets and has computer software to print payroll checks.

Mr. Bell approaches you, an independent HR consultant and owner of your own consulting firm, for a proposal. He would like to greatly reduce his travel to each location each week, due to the increase in gasoline costs. He is curious to know if there is anything you can suggest in helping him complete his HR tasks more efficiently and in a cost-effective manner. He hopes there is some way he can do part of his HR tasks from his office instead of traveling to each location every week.
