    Journey to ZBLL + Why ZBLL is so important

    A lot of people really seemed to be tied to this idea that you have to justify learning ZBLL somehow, and that you should only do it if it's "worth it". Even when people state that they are learning the algs for fun, people really don't seem to be able to let go of the idea. There are quite a...

    Journey to ZBLL + Why ZBLL is so important

    You really make some important points here in a more eloquent way than I was able. Even when you have to find many algs by yourself, there's enough time to work on ZBLL and stay a top cuber. One can't only spend ones time on the things that objectively bring the most improvement for the least...

    Quest to learn full ZBLL [Week 6]

    You should really learn more than one alg per day. If you genuinely like learning algs, it should be in your interest to get good at it. Learning to do 12 or 24 a day is very doable with practice, and ZBLL is a great set to use for this practice. Also, as I mentioned before, I think it's a bad...

    Journey to ZBLL + Why ZBLL is so important

    Wow, it's great to see you on here once again. I never realized how much work you had put into finding the algs. I couldn't tell from your post, but are you aware that there are about 20 or so people (myself as an example) who know full ZBLL by now? I think we would all agree that your work...

    Journey to ZBLL + Why ZBLL is so important

    I don't think the statement that ZBLL is important makes any sense unless you're saying what it's for. So many of the arguments at the start of this thread don't make any sense to me. Clearly there are things that ZBLL is good for, and things which ZBLL is overkill for. If you're just aiming for...

    Quest to learn full ZBLL [Week 6]

    I think COLL just helps with recognition. If you already know CMLL or 2x2 CLL, I feel that you don't gain much from learning COLL. You can't really make a wrong choice. If you find you are somehow struggling because you don't know a COLL, just go learn it.

    Quest to learn full ZBLL [Week 6]

    Actually, you should definitely not assume that the people who originally divided 1LLL into subsets always knew what they were doing. They developed many of their theories at a time when not many people had the practical experience of learning large algsets, and definitely had some wrong ideas...

    Quest to learn full ZBLL [Week 6]

    Keep in mind I specified that one is likely to forget muscle memory after a break. Being able to touch type is normal since you're likely to have to do it every day. It is true that not everyone will have the same experience as me, but I would bet that when it comes to larger algsets such as...

    Quest to learn full ZBLL [Week 6]

    I am well familiar with the process of learning algs by muscle memory. In my experience muscle memory will still almost always be forgotten after a long enough break. Think about it like this: nobody would use muscle memory alone to memorize a password. Muscle memory is a technique that is...

    Quest to learn full ZBLL [Week 6]

    Yeah I know a lot of people who learned ZBLL who have had this experience too. I'd guess there would probably be some big differences in how we approached learning and reviewing the algs. I think the most important factor that led me to remembering my algs better than some other people is that...

    Quest to learn full ZBLL [Week 6]

    With enough experience, you should be able to figure out the fingertricks for most algs in like 0-10 seconds. Some of you may know that I learned most of ZBLL on a virtual cube, meaning I didn't learn the fingertricks. If you watch the videos I made during the period where I was learning ZBLL...

    Quest to learn full ZBLL [Week 6]

    People seem to assume that big algsets have to be constantly reviewed in order for one to retain the algs but I think it's often also possible to just learn them really really well at the start - to the point where you'll remember them even without regular reviews. I know that this is possible...

    Zbroux application

    You'd need to be way better than me in fact. My Roux L10P is miles faster than doing EODFDB+ZBLL
