But 5 packets is NOT standard protocol, and I would have to agree with the previous poster that it sounds like a coach trying to make an extra buck.
My coach said 3-5 for the first week. But I also know some coaches determine # of packets based on how much someone weighs. I think IP recommends more packs for folks over a certain weight.
