    Don't burn yourself out by doing too many solves, but you should try to stay warmed up at the comp.
    And try to stay calm during the comp.
    Don't learn too many new algs, and just practice.

    Constantly focus on your weaknesses and don't learn to much in the week leading up to the comp. You should also check out Brody the cuber's video, "how to get faster on 3x3.

    Another thing- What is the best "learnable" thing to do? I practice a lot every day, but I want to find something I could learn. I kno full CFOP, so I'm looking for suggestions.

    What sub sets do you know? You should also learn good f2l algs for some cases.

    I guess just keep learning VLS and figure out what things you need to work on, it's kinda hard to tell someone what to work on since everyone learns different things at different times.
     
  13. you need some nervousness. the trick is to not think about doing bad but still keep an edge.......

    Try not to think/bother about the people watching you and you should be able to focus better on the solve. Also, don't get too anxious about your timings, it'll just make you more nervous, which might actually result in slower solves. Perhaps practicing with friends more often will help you get used to cubing under pressure. I've not taken part in any competitions as of now and am certainly not an "expert" but still, I hope that helps :)

    Competition coming in less than 2 weeks. I'm about 3 seconds slower color neutral. Should I adapt to color neutrality?

    Not for the comp. You could choke on a 1 move blue cross and be nervous.

    You should practice with this competitions arent always quiet. prepare yourself for the worst (but like, not if there will be a fire. stay realistic) and believe in yourself

    I'm a homeschool cuber. I actually learned to solve to kill my boredom with something other than playing Skyrim for 5+ hours a day, almost. Now I cube almost 5+ hours a day.
