Starting a progression thread because why not. My goals are simple:
Sub-30 3x3
Sub-10 2x2
Sub-5 Pyraminx
Learn 4x4, 5x5, 6x6, 7x7, Megaminx, Skewb, and Square-1

My current means:
2x2 - 25.54
3x3 - 36.57
Pyraminx - 19.14

im assuming u use lbl for 2x2, learn ortega, it can make you sub 5. as for me, im currently sub 7-10 using ortega.

Are you going to learn L4E for pyraminx?

I can almost get sub-5 solves with LBL, but I might consider this

Okay, good to know

My latest goal is to get sub-2 OH. Current average is 3:50.99 because of how hard it is to control a cube one-handed.

Everyone is telling me to, so I am, but I only know 1 algorithm
learn 1 more then 1 more then 1 more then 1 more then 1 more then 1 more then 1 more then 1 more then 1 more then 1 more then 1 more then 1 more then 1 more then 1 more then 1 more then 1 more then 1 more then 1 more then 1 more then 1 more then you got it

For OLL, just learn the sexy-move-based algorithms, at least to start. You should already know a sune/anti-sune that is relatively fast from 3x3. The Pi, U, and T cases are extremely easy. The H perm is only 5 moves. The L perm is the only arguably difficult one, and you should be able to learn that in a day.
For PBL, the adjacent u and diagonal u cases are just T and Y perms. diag/diag case is 3 simple moves and recognition is very easy. The other two are pretty easy to memorize if you just look at the moves you make rather than the notation. The adj/diag is R U' R then F2, then reverse the first 3 with R' U R'.
You already know 4 algs from 3x3, you can learn the olls in a few days, and the plls in a couple days.
