Practice a lot. Also, don't be like me who wasted time constantly switching methods (started with yau, switched to redux, then yau, redux, yau, and ultimately settled on hoya). Choose one of the three methods then stick to it. I would suggest you use yau because it's easiest to improve with, but you should try all 3.

getting frustrated with 3x3, my solves aren't going anywhere, which is why I've started to grind other events, but I rlly want to get sub 10 but even with lots of deliberate practice and grinding, I'm not improving, which is sad.

Did some ZZ solves to see if it was actually that good. Block building is a nightmare. My only experience of doing block-building is from FMC, and there is no time pressure there.

Did a few skewb solves after 6 months of not touching the puzzle and my first solve was 4 seconds(I average 12). Scramble was literally two moves into a U perm, but my little magic locked up a lot during the solve.

I reached 3x3 stage at 33 seconds on 4x4 and then messed up f2l and got double parity. Gave me a 54, which is still good, but I easily could have gotten a sub 50 single.

I got a 5by5 PB Single of 3:05.53
I'm currently learning how to optimally do L2C. I currently a really inefficient way of solving the edges, and then the corners one at a time by putting an unsolved directly another one and doing sune but with double layered r moves

I watched a j perm about 5x5 tips that is three yrs old. Two useful shapes are : Small Lightning bolt and t shape, which can be used to make blocks. Also knowing about 4x4 and being better at that gives you a headstart. I only started 5x5 about 6 weeks ago but now I average 2 mins

Yeah I use his tips vid as well. I also probably need a new cube since my current is super slow and has bad reverse corner-cutting. I'm considering the MS 5by5

I switched my Na perm from that four move setup into jb perm to R F U’ R’ U R U F’ R2 F’ R U R U’ R’ F. It's regripless and is around 0.5 second faster.
