And yet another progression thread. Cool.
I've been cubing for a little over 3 years, but 90% of time I was taking a break, so more like 5 months. My main method is now petrus, I average ~21, and I hope to get sub-10 sometime in the next year or so.
I already know full COLL-S/As
12/72 U ZBLLs (or HPLL for athefre)
Wish me luck!
Btw I have no clue how to do these
Current goal: Improve 2x2x3 efficiency
———
First sub X as of today
Sub 20 ao12 3/22/22
Sub 19 ao12 5/16/22
———
Sub 15 single 3/22/22
Sub 14 single 5/17/22
Sub 13 single 5/18/22
Sub 12 single 5/18/22

learning a few very basic WV cases is good for LSLL, it's a bit underrated but the easy recog cases straight into PLL can be utilized to great effect
it also sounds like you'd get more mileage out of improving FB via block trainer more than anything, regardless of the petrus/apb differences

If you haven't already found this here's the EO alg sheet. Some other easy algs to learn are L5EP ( the set where the RD edge is missing ) and EJLS. Their helpful with keeping right block efficient when you run into bad cases.

Btw are you planning on learning all of HPLL?

All right thanks for the tips
As for learning all of HPLL, I would like to sometime in the future

Obama says that you should in fact use petrus
could have been sub 10 if not for a stupid lockup during right block but whatever

Isn't ZZLL just ZBLL algset?
Yes, its just a subset of HPLL.
I think ZZLL is the stage you get after phasing LS in ZZ-b. Two opposite edges are permuted.
Yup, exactly. It's all the cases where the U edges are opposite of one another.

Similarly 2GLL is the subset where all corners are permuted. L4C is where are all of the U edges are correctly permuted, etc.

I am having -5/10 fun when practicing with petrus,
so should I keep using petrus for the memes,
or switch to another method that I actually have fun with

The whole point of cubing is to have fun! Please, don't think that you have to do anything, because you don't.
If you're not having fun, you'll get burnt out, and get slower, causing you to have even less fun. It's a frustrating cycle that you shouldn't fall into.
If you find something else more fun, switch to that, we'll be with you.

Kinda easy to understand but speedcubereview has a good video on it
btw I don't like being mainstream, so no, not cfop, but cfce is looking kinda interesting I might try it
