My progression thread, I guess. (Road to Sub-10 CFOP) | Slowed down a bit, but I'm working on getting back to my usual average.

Can I reach sub-15 by Summer 2022?

Alright so I need help getting to sub-24. I've been hovering at the edge getting 23s and 24s sometimes 25s. I close. Yesterday, I got a full 23 average, and today I'm getting lots of PB averages. My F2L is fast, but sometimes it ends around like 16 seconds into a solve after 2.5 seconds cross. OLL needs some work, but PLL is ok. Lots of PB averaages today as well as a couple sub 20 solves. Please help!
I’d learn full PLL if you haven’t, start learning OLL after that, and just keep doing solves to improve your F2L lookahead.

So I took a break from 3x3 for a while because I love 4x4, and now I'm back! I will continue with OLL for now. So does anyone know any other algs for A perms? I want to switch as the lefty one is kind of slow for me.
Use l' U R' D2 R U' R' D2 R2 and x R2 D2 R U R' D2 R U' R

I just use the standard A perms using my right hand, although I am aware that the lefty a perms are optimal. You should just drill them more, and naturally they will get faster.
Righty A perms are optimal. Git gud at lefty D2s pls.

TBH, I haven't been doing cubing recently because I have a lot of work to do. Our school is giving us a lot of assignments, and I have been working overtime to finish them. Also, weekly exams started and well, they were easy but I still had to study. Summer vacation is probably going to start next week and I definitely will resume cubing!

I guess an explanation is in order. I haven't been cubing. My school has been giving like 10 assignments a day. So I've been working on those. In that process, I couldn't find the time to cube. But, I promise I'm finally back, not like anyone cares but I am. So, since our school finally announced summer vacation, I'll cube a lot more. Also, I switched to CubeDesk.
Sorry not sorry for the pfp! I'll changeit after a day.

Bad news. I had to get a shot because I stepped on the charger thing, so now my left hand feels like lead and I can't even lift it. The doc said that it should be gone by tommorow so... I guess cubing is over for today. I might try OH in spite of this tho.

Alright, so CSUL is coming up, and I'm preparing for that. I have noticed tho that I have gotten slower at 3x3. During F2L, I often find myself slowing down to look for pieces, and during PLL, I sometimes go REALLY fast but mess up. I guess this is due to the fact that I have gotten rusty, so I will be grinding a lot more. Anyone have any tips?

Just practise, is what you need, I’d say. If you drill the PLL algs, you’ll be less prone to messing up, and practicing F2L will help with lookahead.
