So, I have Western Championship coming in October. And, I don't have much hope, but I want to be able to get an actual average of 5 on 5x5. I've been grinding for the past week and I dropped my averages from 2:50 down to 2:30. I still have a lot to go. I need to drop down to sub-2 or even just low 2. I'll also be doing the same for Megaminx. So, any tips for both puzzles are welcome. Even if I don't get an average for Megaminx, I really would like to have one for 5x5. Thanks 😊.

Do you use yau or redux for 5x5?

nice, do you solve with the smallest side or largest side on the bottom? I presume you use CFOP for it right?
