Hey all,
what methods did you all use to improve?

I've been stuck at around 50 seconds per solve for around a month now
any tips would be great!

I really need some help to lower my 3x3 Times,I average around 13 seconds,and I have a Valk 3 Power M ,what can I do to be sub-11?

The biggest thing is improving look ahead and using your inspection better. Make sure you practice doing the cross and track your first F2L pair if you’re using CFOP. Another thing that will help is to do practice sessions with your PLL/OLL and see which Algs are slower than your others and drill them or find new ones to improve your consistency

If you want to turn faster you can do one or two of the following:
Use less moves.
Turn faster.

I recommend focusing strongly on the first one. Figure out efficient ways to solve each F2L pair, look up algs for the cases where you aren't efficient. And then drill, drill, drill, until you can do every case blindfolded, asleep, and super fast.

This is exactly what I needed to find, and consequently read. I’ve been messing with cubes for years but only recently “got serious” with solving them. The shift came after my mindset switched and I started looking at solving the cube as a series of steps practiced, reasoned, and thus actually understood - versus random spinning or impossible to understand algorithms. My time for solving in the fastest it has ever been in my life, and this resource is only improving upon that! Thank you!

I’m new to speedcubing and started learning CFOP. The cross and F2L are not difficult to grasp because of how intuitive they are, however, I have trouble learning the algorithms for OLL and PLL. I find it difficult to practice with these because unlike the cross and F2L, once you do one part of OLL, you have to move on straight to PLL. Any suggestions for how to more efficiently practice OLL and PLL separately?

Whenever I learn a new algorithm, I will drill it continuously until I have it. with some algorithms I will get confused with because they are so similar, so I will have to relearn it and practice it just as much of the new algorithm
