oops well then i mean in one sitting lolDoing 2000 solves in one sitting, once, is not the same as regularly doing 2000-solve sessions.
My personal experience, having learnt ZBLL algs a lot more haphazardly, is that if I don't review regularly (or at least do lots of solves regularly), I'll find myself mixing some algs together. Algs that have similar triggers sometimes just blend into each other in my mind and I mess those up a fair amount. Quite a few times recently I've had to jog my memory by looking the algs up again. Now I'm wondering if it's too late to relearn ZBLL properly (and perhaps actually finish it this time).
I mean muscle memory is useful, if you just train your muscle memory, come back, recall the muscle memory again, and do it again and again until the alg becomes subcounscious with muscle memory and you wont even think about it.Yeah I know a lot of people who learned ZBLL who have had this experience too. I'd guess there would probably be some big differences in how we approached learning and reviewing the algs. I think the most important factor that led me to remembering my algs better than some other people is that my learning approach was completely focused on testing myself on random algs at as fast a rate as possible. For those who are not so familiar with my approach, I think the most important points are the following:
I would be interested in knowing what the differences between the ways we learn algs are, and how they may have contributed to our different experiences with recalling algs.
- I did not use muscle memory to memorize algs - I always memorized the moves first. From my experience, algs memorized with muscle memory will always be forgotten after a break. Remembering stuff using your brain is always more reliable.
