Asking how to get faster when you are this slow is kinda dumb. At this point there are obvious things you need to do like practice, practice and uhhh oh right! Practice!

Jay Mcneill has a good video about this (I don't remember which one) but he outlined in the video that, when you are slow there is tons of time that can be made up by practice and familiarity with your method/algs.

So practice and don't ask for help anymore until you reach 1 minute which is where you might ACTUALLY need tips for improvement. Until then PRACTICE PRACTICE PRACTICE

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.

what 4x4s do you guys use?
I use the GTS2 Since my hands are big but the MGC 4x4 looks extremely good based on testers and stuff, Its 60 mm (same size as the valk 4) so if you want something small but not too small the MGC would be your best bet but I don't have it yet (as soon as TC comes out with pro shop versions ill get it)

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.
