This is a thread mainly for my journey in learning mainly full OLL, and PLL. I will most likely use J Perm's website to learn, but may use cubeskills once in a while. I will be posting daily or every other day until I fully use Full CFOP. welp this is going to get repetitive. You can give me some tips if you want, any would be great!
Benchmark Times: 28.21, 31.97, 33.52, 26.39, 41.45 (AO5 is 31.23)
Currently know all of J Perms 2 Look OLL algs, know basic PLL algs, Color Neutral
Goal: Sub 10 in 6 Months.
Here we go...

Everything in life is possible, but in this case, you have to work hard to reach that goal in such a short time.
My advice now is that you work on your F2L a lot, because this will considerably reduce your times.

Have fun and good luck!

Well I haven’t practiced in a while which resulted In my bad times. I usually can get it down to sub 30 if I practice.

Cool, what is your strategy going to be? How many algs will you learn per day, and how many solves do you plan to do? Good luck!

I wish I could achieve what you’re about to do with Petrus... I said sub 8 would probably take several year, sub 10 only a bit less... Anyway, congratulations on this big goal, hope to see you complete it!

Probably 1 OLL alg in 3 days and learn a pll alg within a week.

Log 1 (10/23/19): Well this is a lot harder than I expected. I've learned 2 OLL algs, but to be honest those were easy and I learned them beforehand. I'm close to memorizing 2 PLL algs, and should finish both by the end of the week. Don't know if I can commit time tomorrow as I have to study for spanish. I realize that I'm going to have to work a lot harder in order to finish my goal.

If you want me to comtinue to post like this, on a blog, or a google doc please tell me.

Log 2 (10/23/19 [ITS BEEN A WHILE]): So I haven't posted for a while and the reason why is mainly because I've been waiting for my Gan XS, which is supposed to arrive tomorrow, so yeah. So far I've memorized 5 OLL algs and 3 PLL algs, which is a really good start. I'm close to memorizing 2 more PLL algs and 3 more OLL algs which is nice. I don't have school on Monday or Tuesday next week so I can work more on it.

I'd recommend reading https://medium.com/@maxdeutsch/my-month-long-quest-to-solve-a-rubiks-cube-in-under-20-seconds-2b2204282575, its someone's journey from going to about a minute to sub 20 in a month. It may help you get an idea of how to practice so you can learn in a short time.]

I'd give more tips, but you have better times than me ;)

Maybe learn all of PLL and then switch to OLL(or vice-versa)? That way your learning one type of alg at a time. (just a suggestion)

TEACH ME YOUR WAYS MAX DEUTSCH. Sub 50 to sub 20 in one month... Ah well. I don’t have much time as him, not a lot of resources, and less self-criticism as a youngster :).

First off, it isn't that hard, you just have to be committed. Using beginner's method I got down from a minute to 30 sec.
Next, I have the doc that I will be posting all logs on, and I just finished the next log. Here it is: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1omgX1KXBvenEynf0gkvs1rbAIXjauO4LICAUU3thnSg/edit?usp=sharing

I am really trying hard to be Sub 20 although I get many times below 20. I have learnt about 70% of PLLs and very easy OLLs. Currently working on F2L , Cross and Look Ahead.
