Strength and Power Cycle 3 Week 1

This is the last week to enroll in Jordan's camp this Saturday. This is a perfect opportunity for you to get practice with the technical lifts. We can only do so much in our normal 1-hour classes. And you get BBQ too. Can't go wrong there.

Added Bonus: Win a free spot in the camp. Follow the instructions below.

I'm working on a longer rant about nutrition research and the scienceyness of academia. But before I go there, I want to show something interesting about research papers.

Let's say that I report in my paper that the mean of my results is 4.13 (nothing fancy, simple arithmetic mean).  That mean came from three observations and those observations were counts of things (that means non-negative real integers). Given that information, tell me what my three possible observations are.

First person to email me a qualifying set of observations can come to the camp this weekend free.
