I have no clue how they ramp up or down, but from what I've seen many of the top athletes will go at least 3 times per workout. It seems crazy but they work those mechanics and transitions and add 2 or 3 reps. I remember hearing someone (I think Malleolo sp? or Fisch) and they said they did the open workout every day for a week. Needless to say...I'll do it once. Maybe twice if I really think I can drastically improve, but I'm not booking my ticket to the Central East, let alone any region!
Henry: You're not afraid of competition, are you Shawn?
Shawn: Of course not. As long as doesn't involve people trying to best each other.
