I currently do cfop 3lll and use a Gan 356m lite and I have a best time of 21.88 but cant get past the 30-40 second average barrier .
Any help would be appreciated, thanks!
I recommend doing a split session on csTimer (multiphase) and noticing your weaknesses.
The ideal time split for 30 seconds is about
3~5
12~15
4~5
4~5
(I'm not that sure so ask maybe?)

Ah. Maybe you should start F2L algs because intuitive F2L takes a bit of time. I recommend the F2L pdf from cubeskills, because they are quite fast. I think you should also start learning some PLL algs for the cases that take a bit of time. You should already know the Y perm, T perm, H perm, Z perm and the U perms. You can learn faster algs for the U perms, because the R U versions are very slow and the M U versions are very fast.

in my experience as someone learning f2l, most are intuitive but there are a few where it's just better to memorize the cases. usually the corner and edge stuck together cases. for some the best algs are kinda unintuitive

how to sub-10 on rubik 3x3?
I can't really tell if this is a joke, but assuming you are talking about sub 10 seconds, I would get a good performing cube like an Rs3M or Qiyi MS. Then make sure you know full OLL-PLL, have efficient and fast f2l, cross in 7 moves or less, and practice practice practice.
Edit: Do dedicated practice. Don't just spam solves.

Probably they don’t want to buy a speedcube for some reason.

What’s your current average?

Hi everyone

Well, I have been cubing for about 8 months now and recently achieved sub 20. It's mostly dedication and practice but I assume about a year. To recognize OLL, remember a characteristic about a certain OLL (Eg. Headlights, no corners) and use alg trainers.

Hi, I am trying really really really hard to get to sub 20 on 3x3, I use:
CFOP
Currently averaging around 22-25 secs
Best: 17 worst: 33
Main 3x3: Gan356M and Gan11M duo

4 to 10 moves cross (4 secs),

mix of advanced and intuitive F2L (13 secs),
Look ahead sometimes for F2L

1 or 2 look OLL (half of the cases learnt) (2 to 4 secs)
1 look PLL (bad at G Perms and V Perms) (3 secs)

I think i usually stop a lot at times to identify what F2L case to do next, what oll what pll

Pls tell me how to improve apart from saying practise
