Hi! I just get my pyraminx around a month ago and now average around 10 secs. I'm currently using LBL. Is there any tips to get faster at doing the first layer in just 4-5 seconds?

Blockbuilding is very important. Also it's good to turn the tips at an efficient time during your solve and look-a-head for the last layer. When you insert your last edge on the bottom layer you should know which last layer case you get so you can perform it without pauses

I have had a pyraminx for about a month now, and i average 9-10 seconds with intuitive l4e and my hook method. Any tips for improving blockbuilding/lookahead during blockbuilding? Also, what are good ways to fingertrick tips with a strong click?

For now. Just learn LBL and practice. I know that vague, so feel free to ask questions. I'm not great either. Sub 10 with LBL. But that will work for now.

i do use lbl and i practice yet im still sub 20
How much have you practiced? I can guarantee that if you do 100 more solves you'll improve a ton.

For some other general tips, I have a video I made a couple years ago on the topic (I wasn't as fast then and my voice was much higher lol, but I still think the tips I gave still apply). (Also sorry for the self-advertising. :p)
