I have trouble making the Green Red Blue and Orange centers. Those take me 2 minutes. Any tips to improve those?

lol I have 2 sub-1 singles with redux.
I mean I can consistently get sub 40s (maybe sub 45s) with redux. It's just better in the long run to use Yau

do untimed solves and turn super slowly so you can learn how they move.

I don't know if you should listen to me, as I am 1:45 average, but helped drop my time by 45 seconds was not doing the 3 white cross edges and skipping to the 4 other centers. This is for me, but when I work on the 4 middle centers, I always mess up the cross edges, so that's why I just solve all of the edges after I finish the centers.

Stop doing that. Trust me, it's worse than Yau. I did that for a while since it was quicker and when I switched it took a while. It's slower right now since you're not used to it, but please use normal Yau right now, it'll save you a lot of headache in the end.
